DMX turns 50 today!
The man who delivered two number one albums in one year with It's Dark And Hell Is Hot and Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood has officially turned the corner.
DMX was twenty-eight in his breakout year, beginning a saga lined with triumph and tragedy, from a rapper who never truly sought out fame.
After fifty years of life DMX can look back on his days with pride.
Happy birthday DMX!
Everyone knows -your- name!
