Menacing, muscular and magnetic, DMX has always been hardcore rap's unrivaled top dog. After the deaths of icons 2Pac and Biggie, when rap was threatening to go soft, DMX's uncompromising intensity and street cred kept hardcore hard. He's the only artist to have five consecutive albums debut at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart. That they were the first albums of his career makes his success even more astonishing.

DMX's breakout 1998 debut It's Dark And Hell Is Hot is regarded as one of the best debut rap albums of all time, a necessary introduction to one of the greatest hardcore rappers in hip-hop history. Praised for its dark imagery, street story telling and gritty lyricism, the album debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and has gone quadruple platinum. Featuring the Top Ten Rap cut "Stop Being Greedy," Top 40 R&B track "Ruff Ryders Anthem," and the Top 20 R&B songs "How's It Goin' Down" and "Damien."

In celebration of the 15th anniversary of DMX's 1998 hip-hop classic It's Dark And Hell Is Hot, Universal Music Enterprises and Def Jam are reissuing the out of print album on limited edition gold colored double vinyl.
