What other rapper matches this intensity? Love it.

Kind of blew me away. There's a reason DMX was sitting on the top for, what, a few months? The 2nd half of this album shifts away from his slightly-satirical gangster tracks into an evolving, morphing inquiry into conscience, spirituality, and the presence of god.

Ruff Ryders' Anthem and a couple of others are classic X at his best but a lot of the production on the b-side tracks is wack
