DMX - The Great Depression
on 18 July 2004
Maybe if at the first listen of this album I was going through a Great Depression of my own, I would have appreciated it more. Unfortunatly, it just isn't for me. Standout tracks are 'Who we Be', 'We Right Here' and 'Shorty was da Bomb'. DMX is one of the truest rappers out there, on this 2001 release, there is no productions from the Neptunes, Timbaland, Dre and for that he has got to be respected. He has kept it raw but this time the results are flawed. Personally, I don't spend £15 on a CD to hear a dog bark 35 times a track.
'Its Dark and Hell is Hot' is a classic. This one tries to hard to be street, DMX doesn't need to try. He is street.
