或許他早已用他那特有的強悍節奏收服我們了。「史上首位同年度坐擁2張冠軍專輯的藝人」,來自美國東岸、本名Earl Simmons的DMX,自’98年發行『It’s Dark & Hell Is Hot』專輯以降,’99年『Flesh Of My Flesh Blood Of My Blood』、2000年『And Then There Was X』、2001年『The Great Depression』三年三張超猛勁碟張張皆獲Billboard流行專輯榜與嘻哈專輯榜雙料冠軍的超硬底實力,還真不是凡人能搞定!

累積全球1600萬張專輯銷售、首本個人自傳E.A.R.L.(Ever Always Real Life)助他躋身「暢銷作家」一席後,DMX蟄伏兩年祭出的最新酷碟【Grand Champ/超級大贏家】甫發行已獲AMG音樂網站4星推薦、後勢看漲。不過這也難怪,光看有50 Cent/五角、Eve/夏娃、Cam’Ron/肯隆、Patti LaBelle/佩蒂拉貝爾、Jadakiss、Styles P…等人的跨刀增色,全輯能否再度"連莊"繼續保持「出輯便擄獲Billboard雙榜冠軍王」的紀錄可說是勢在必得。

首發單曲"Where The Hood At" DMX硬派的饒舌唱腔混雜著濃冽的嘻哈火藥味和Tuneheadzfd狂野似獸的貝斯聲線,不禁讓人聯想到DMX的成名大作"Get At Me Dog";50 Cent和LOX團員-Styles助陣嗆聲的"Shot Down"唱出黑幫世界中男性的對話,由G-Unit節奏創造者(beatmaker)Saleem執掌製作。知名製作Kanye West操刀的"Dogs Out"為DMX營塑出80年代中版的節奏氣氛,相當好聽。DMX說道:「敞開心胸去感受這世界心跳的節奏才有辦法做出與眾不同的音樂!不管是哪種樂風。在音樂中和歌迷一同去感覺、去掙脫、去探索,其實感覺挺好的。」鐵漢也有柔情,整張專輯總之兩個字--順耳!
