It was announced the other month that the rapper would be executive producing the upcoming film, "Southpaw," which stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Forest Whittaker and Rachel McAdams.

    If you don't jump around when "Party Up" comes on, you're no friend of mine. At the real clubs, DMX's 90s singles still get spun on repeat. The fact remains he's one of the best selling rap artists of all time. His first three records, two in '98 and one in '99, went 4x, 3x, and 5x platinum respectively. His first two album covers depicted him covered in blood. He brought an aggression to hip-hop that hadn't been seen and likely won't be matched anytime soon. Half-man, half-dog, he's just as known for his barks, growls, yells, and manic ad-libs as he is for lyrics.
