DMX strikes again…. Looking fit, strong and focused, Dark Man X tore the roof off of one of his favorite New York City locations this past Friday when he performed at BB Kings, co-sponsored by us here at The Source Magazine.   The Hip-Hop legend has frequented the venue for his loyal followers.  As he’s known, he began in full clothes, breaking down a layer at a time, as he performed his extensive list of hits for the very enthusiastic crowd. Throughout the show X broke out into free-style verses, life-inspiring speeches and corresponding prayers.

The resonation of DMX’s influence in music is reflected by his crowd which was wildly diverse in age, race, and beyond, yet the show still felt more like a special reunion of sorts.  His performance was one of his many upcoming shows leading up to the 20th anniversary reunion of the Ruff Ryders on April 21st  at the Barclays Center.

In a great moment, DMX took a pause between performing another hit to pull his ex-wife to the front of the stage, whom he stated his appreciation and love for. The hour long show left the crowd hungry for more, and we can’t wait to see the latest from Earl Simmons – nothing but love for one of the greatest whose ever done it!
