Easily 50. I remember when X dropped though sh*t was so fu*king ill. Dam shame he ended up the way he did. Had G.O.A.T.-like potential.

I would say 50 cent, people were waiting for that thanks to Em. But Dmx was big to thanks Loxs. But I wasn't checking for Dmx when his album came out. But when I did get it was straight fireeeeeeee

I will say 50 because of all the hype from his beef with Ja Rule. I wanted to see him murk Ja, go from mixtape to official mainstream and he did. Queens, NY love.

How you figure it isn't close, DMX had 2 #1 albums in '98.
yea dmx debut was ridiculous too so its a good question but 50s debut was unlike anything iv ever seen. not only was it probably the most hyped up debut for a rapper but in music in general as well.

50 without a doubt.

DMX shared his summer with Jay-Z, Camron, Mase, Noreaga, Canibus (even though his album was wack he still had a buzz), Big Pun, and a bunch of other new rappers.

There was literally no competition when 50 came out. 2003 belonged to G-Unit.

Yeah but you have to take eras into account too though. DMX dropped when hip hop was still in the streets.

50 dropped and got an interview with Sway on MTV, and when hip hop was already turned out and commercialized.
dmx came out when hip hop was wearing shiny suits and turning into what it is now..DMX prolong the pac/thug life era until 50 came and hes the last of the dying breed in my opinion..

My father had 3 of the largest black owned record stores for over 15 years and I can tell you from 1st hand this is not even close. Though DMX eventually became a big hit from battling and guest features, his initial buzz was relatively mild. 50 cent's buzz and subsequent sells was CRAZY. I still have pictures of lines of customers stretching around the block at midnight to purchase 50's GRODT.

its a whole different type of buzz too tho..50 had a swelling buzz for years that capped off in a tremendous way with his album release..DMX just came out the sky one day with get at me dog and people started flipping cars over and throwing their AC's out their building windows n sh*t. it was fast and lasted a good year then that he became who he is.

The was mad albums out the year DMX dropped, But I agree 50 really had no competition when he came out. but DMX was not wack at all..
