I totally agree. He does have the best voice in hip-hop. Too bad he let his personal issues overwhelm his life. They probably have ruined his career. :(
xHaStex's avatar
i cant say i know too much about his personal life apart from what he says in his lyrics...and to be honest weve only got 1 album of his...we need more...XD...
was there summat to do with fraud that he was involved in?...

You have got some excellent taste, m8! DMX is king, one of my favourite hiphop artists. Stop Being Greedy, and Who We Be, are my two most favourite DMX tracks.
This portrait definately does the ruff ryder justice, its frickin awesome, you've captured the look and as soon as I saw it in my deviation list I was like 'holy s**t! Hastey's done DMX!'

Its so good I wish I'd done it. Hmmmm, celeb portraits could be a decent money maker too. I don't think the copyright is too strict with it either.

heh heh...
hip hop...the guilty secret of the punk/metal head...
in fact no...it aint just hiphop...i digg dnb...trip hop...and although i hate rave, prodigys first album is a blazin aural assault for the ears...rave or nay!....

shrugg was a massive hip hop head before i met her so a lot of cd collection is of that ilk...but alas, we only have 1 DMX cd...something we both agree needs adding to...
who else you like buddy?...

thats a very nice comment from you d00d3...it means a lot...
diggin the whole portrait thing at the mo...gotta admit i struggle with some o dem bitches but after hours and hours...days and days...i can normally hit the likeness...
i ve wannad to get burned for selling pictures of other people who have the power to rip me apart so i dont offer up prints...id investigate the laws behind it...if i cud be arsed...XD...:sleepy:

I know what you mean, I'm not a fan of rave in the slightest, but Prodigy can tear shit up.
Hmmm, I have a really varied taste in music...in a nutshell to list a few I'd say... Black Sabbath, Kaiser Chiefs, Goldfrapp, Kanye West, Beenie Man, Glamma kid, Ladytron, DMX, T.I, Ludacris, Rammstein....loads more. I hate dance and indie music though as well as grime/grhyme (or Brit-Shit Hop as I like to call it).
If I were to recommend a DMX album it'd have to be 'Its Dark and Hell is Hot', awesome album.

lol. No probs, m8.

yeh man variety r00l35 k33ps ya sane...
my judment is...XD...
i hate Kaisers...
Sabbath and Rammstein are ite but not the kinda metal i like...if that makes sense...
DMX and TI are sw33t...
Ludacris has some cool tracks...i really like his flow...
dont really know goldfrapp, Beenie man or Ladytron...
Kanyes first 2 albums were great but his recent stuff grates my nerves so much...
