Peak period DMX – coming pretty quickly on the heels of the breakout It's Dark And Hell Is Hot – and a prime set of rough, raw Ruff Ryder hip hop circa '98! DMX's rhymes are nearly as brutal as that bloody cover photo, but he has such a knack for delivering even the most hardcore rhymes in the form of shout along anthems, he managed to take 'em to the top of the charts. The top notch production is a big part of that, too, plus first rate guests Mary J Blige, Jay Z, Swizz Beats and Lox. Includes "Coming From" featuring Mary J Blige, "Blackout" feat LOX & Jay-Z, "Dogs For Life", "Omen", "Slippin", "Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood", "Heat", "Keep Your Sh*t The Hardest", "It's All Good", and others.
(Deluxe 15th Anniversary edition – on heavy, high quality blood spatter colored vinyl.)
