Some artists change for the better and progress through the years while others stay mired in the same repetitive pattern for their entire career. Dmx is an artist that fits into the second category, an artist with all the talent in the world, but one that has never grown or progressed over time. When X dropped his classic debut album â€œItâ€™s Dark And Hell It Hotâ€, he proved to the entire industry why he was indeed one of the best up and coming artists in the game. However, from their on out, X has never really changed, and instead of growing with each album he has moved backwards, releasing sub par albums that unfortunately have gotten worse each time. This pattern once again continues on Xâ€™s latest and final LP â€œGrand Champâ€, where we get an album full of the same tired old Dmx clichÃ©s.
