THIS IS YOUR BYP WAKE-UP CALL!
Check out DMX’s classic music video for “Slippin’,” from 1998’s Flesh of my Flesh, Blood of my Blood, below.
People love to laugh and make light of X’s long, hard fall from grace; “Slippin'” is just one of the many reasons why it’s not funny. DMX gave a voice to a voiceless, forgotten generation of young people. And “Slippin'” was revelatory upon its initial release; a detailed, true-to-life account of one man’s struggle, that was and continues to be the struggle of many.
Please, please, PLEASE get better, X!
