Accurate DMX Lyrics
DMX (Dark Man X, born Earl Simmons on December 18, 1970 in Baltimore, Maryland) is a hip hop artist and actor most famous in the late-1990s. His dark, gothic subject matter, usually depicting a tortured soul torn between the sacred and the profane; and his gruff, barked rhymes were acclaimed by fans and critics alike.
The only child of a single mother, Simmons grew up in the inner city of Yonkers, New York. He began pursuing a career in hip-hop in the early 1990s, a 1994 deal with Columbia Records fell through.
One A&R said that when he first met DMX, despite having his jaw wired was rhyming so furiously that it left him with no doubt that he was the next big thing. In the late 1990s, he joined the Ruff Ryders Entertainment management company, who arranged a deal with Def Jam for the Dark Man X. DMX's debut single was "Get at Me Dog", an instant hit. His debut album was It's Dark and Hell Is Hot. It entered the charts at #1 in 1998, as did its follow-ups Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood, ...And Then There Was X and The Great Depression. A number of hit singles kept DMX a presence on both urban and pop radio, including "Ruff Ryders Anthem", "Money, Cash, Hoes", "Slippin'", "What's My Name", and "What These Bitches Want".
In September of 2003, DMX released his fifth album Grand Champ and became the only artist in the history of the Billboard 200 to reach No. 1 with his first five albums.
Despite his commercial success, many rap fans long for the return of DMX during his "It's Dark and Hell is Hot" days, which many claim was his best album.
DMX also has a criminal history originating with an arrest in 1999 in Teaneck, New Jersey, when police found a pistol, crack pipes and 13 pit bulls on the premises of his home. He pleaded guilty to charges of animal cruelty, disorderly conduct and possession of drug paraphernalia, and was sentenced to make public service announcements for the Humane Society.
In June of 2004, DMX and a friend were arrested in the parking lot of Kennedy Airport in New York for allegedly attempting to steal a car and impersonating a federal agent. DMX was taken to central lockup in Queens and held on charges of attempted robbery, criminal impersonation and criminal mischief. His driver's license was suspended for the incident.
In April of 2005, DMX was arrested in The Bronx for driving with a suspended license after his car crashed into a police cruiser.
