  • In 1998, DMX brings new energy to a laid-back hip-hop scene. While various MCs have been busy partying and dancing, DMX has been amping himself up for a powerful debut. IT’S DARK AND HELL IS HOT is the first full-length release from the rapper, despite an attempt to break through in 1993. It wasn’t until legendary rap label Def Jam got a hold of him that DMX’s career began to take off. While being featured on a number of blazing posse cuts, DMX took hip-hoppers to the next level with his smash single, “Get At Me Dog.” With tight production and lyrical gymnastics, DMX puts the hardcore back into hip-hop.

Professional Reviews: Rolling Stone (7/9-23/98, p.134) – 3 Stars (out of 5) – “…relies heavily on pop-y, verse-chorus-verse song structures more common with commercial rappers than with roughneck MCs. DMX sidesteps the potential banality of this radio-ready format…with a ferocious delivery reminiscent of vintage L.L. Cool J…”

Spin (8/98, p.143) – 6 (out of 10) – “…a psychotic concept album that celebrates bloody style over creative substance….DMX never shares a worldview not seen from the inside of a prison or from behind a blue-steel trigger…”

Q (8/00, p.124) – 4 stars out of 5 – “…Hard-as-nails multi-platinum 1998 debut complete with wall-to-wall cursing, booming beats and – scariest of all – Phil Collins’ ‘In The Air Tonight’ being given a good slapping…”

The Source (7/98, p.151) – 4 Mics (out of 5) – “…DMX raps as if he’s about to explode….IT’S DARK AND HELL IS HOT is a mind-gripping opus that fully encompasses the appeal of one of rap’s newest sensations…”

Pitchfork (Website) – “[A] haunting debut, a tragically clear-eyed criminal manifesto that dared to greet damnation with defiance and a psalm.”
