I know that last night I was all the rave about DMX’s performance on the BET Hip Hop Awards and I do still think that he’s all that and then some but Heavy D laid it down. I was a little worried about Tyrese when he first came out, I had some concerns that he had contracted a bad case of tone deafness. He’s fine and all that but he got off to a rough start. When all the water boils out of the pot, Heavy killed it. Watching him do the Dougie was great fun, so, I think that Heavy and DMX stole the show, but then again, I’m an ole head lol.
Tonight was the phuckery better known as the BET Hip Hop awards, which, by the way, I refuse to watch. I don’t know, as popular as the culture is, I guess that I don’t have much in common with the messages, and, for the most part, don’t really care to. BUT…and I do mean a huge BUT, I do <3 DMX.
Despite his drug problems and legal issues, DMX is still a force to be reckoned with, not only in the industry but as a poet with a message. I know that I sound like a hype man (and I’m sure my friends are tired of me talking about DMX this evening) but each time I see a mug shot of him, my heart sinks a little lower and then when I hear new work or see him lay down an incredible performance, I am all on my feet. Well, after being locked up, strung out and MIA for a while, the DMX performance at the BET Hip Hop awards aired tonight. All I can say about DMX’s performance tonight is “He’s BACK!!!!” …. for a minute anyway. Here is the video of the performance on tonight’s show:
DMX really made it happen tonight, I really hope he’s got more performances like this in the near future. THIS is the DMX I just LOVE!
