like New York's been soft ever since Snoop came through and crushed the
buildings/I'm tryin' to restore the feelin's . . ." Although this line
wasn't spoken by DMX, like Jay-Z, DMX too is an intrigal part of
bringing New York rap back to the top. And in his sophomore effort
'Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood' he continues to do just that.
Billed as a more stripped down, more raw album, 'Flesh' again makes the
case that a talented lyricist needs little more than a good beat and
some room to show his skills.
In fact, what's most impressive about this album is that one can
hear DMX continuing to grow into an even better artist, one who hasn't
reached the top of his game yet. After another quality outing it will
be interesting to hear not just where DMX goes from here, but the
upcoming Murder Inc. project which features DMX, Jay-Z, and Ja Rule. In
the meantime, X's fans should be more than pleased once again when they
add this album to their rotation.
