Why isn't he already one of the GOAT's? His run up until Grand Champ is literally ridiculous, next to no one can match his sales accomplishments. He's got 2 classic albums, potentially 3. He's neck and neck with 2pac for having the best delivery & presence behind the mic, I'm a bit nostalgic for Pac but X is right there. I don't see a reason he isn't in that conversation. He's in my top 5-10 best. Nobody, outside of Pac, could make you feel everything he said and bring the intensity X had.
"How you gonna explain fucking a man?/
Even if we squashed the beef, I ain't touching ya hand/
I don't bunk with chumps, for those who been to jail/
That's the cat with the Kool-Aid on his lips and pumps/
I don't fuck with niggas that think they broads"

Like I honestly hope DMX's entire family dies in a fire.
