At the end of the day you have to give it to X because he shut the game down off straight grimey music, he never needed RNB features, flashy videos, or trend chasing to sell records

he was

but you really gonna tell me dmx has the same machine working behind him like jay z

look at the justin timberlake numbers, thats the machine in full throttle.

I think the record companies knew jay z was more marketable and would be a long time investment. Like I said, in Europe it was VERY rare for rappers to get exposure on national tv. I don't think I've ever seen a rap video get played in full length on english tv except that. They literally said "heres a new single from new rapper jay z"

hardly some shiny suit sh*t too, just saying

----------------------------------

Just checked and it was 98. Interesting, coz I don't remember ever seeing a DMX video ever played on national tv

I remember on some music show that used to come on weekly. X gon give it to ya was #3 on the chart, they would usually play all top 5 videos. But they showed like 10 secs of X gon give it to ya and cut. Funny sh*t, I smoke alot of weed but got a great memory

You're using a 2013 argument on those singles and bodied your own argument in the process my n*gga. All of that work...

...and DMX STILL outsold him. Which back then, was all that mattered. Now things have evolved. You can flop album sales wise but if you can have 2 or 3 platinum singles, you're good. DMX's argument is made STRONGER by that singles argument.

i think its safe to say jigga is GOAT material based on consistency and body of work... but 98-00 belonged to X -- PERIOD.

on another note kinda lame to obsess that much over a man that doesn't even know you exist. take them stanley glasses off cuz it ain't a good look on you..

Nobody cares about this sh*t anymore. X was the man back then though. I remember my bro bumping Juvenile, X, and Too Short constantly. Ironically, my sis was getting into Jay.
