BREAKING NEWS: DMX’s Bark Returns With The 2011 BET Hip Hop Awards
I was watching the BET Hip-Hop Awards, hosted by Mike Epps, as I’m sure many of our readers were doing as well, when I was shocked to see DMX hitting the stage with Swizz Beatz. With his frequent visits to prison and numerous hardships, this was the last person that I expected to see grace my television screen. Coming out with energy reminiscent of performances in his prime, DMX performed a few of his classic songs. The crowd stood up in amazement at the sight of one of Hip-Hop’s most beloved and talented artists redeemed in front of their eyes. This has been a long time coming and I am relieved and grateful to have witnessed it. Seeing DMX doing what he does best felt like a battle that had been won and a hurdle that had been overcome. We can only hope to see more moments such as this from DMX in the near future.
