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!
