Friday Video: “What’s My Name” – DMX

Friend of the blog Aaron Kaufman recently pointed me toward “Stop the Party (Remix)”, on which DMX comes out of semi-seclusion to bark out a few lines at around the three minute mark. He sounds weirdly diminished on the track, like we’re somehow hearing Earl Simmons but not DMX himself, but the above video is a reminder that the dude had serious presence. (MTV-ready menace is still menace.) The clip is as absurd as it is effective, but there was a time when it was the other way around.

. . .

Also, It’s Dark and Hell is Hot is still one of the best album titles ever.
