Grand Champ

Published September 18, 2003.DMXGrand Champ(Def Jam)DMX has recently voiced his displeasure with hip-hop: “I’m sick of the rap game. I’m sick of this fucking industry.” So it goes that X’s fifth and final album drops this month, and if it’s any indication, he is going out on top. Where The Great Depression was introspective, Grand Champ is aggressive and unflinching. The Ruff Ryders are here, as are 50 Cent (“Shot Down”) and Patti LaBelle (“Thank You”). The void DMX is going to leave will rival that of fellow street poet Tupac Shakur. —Trevor Savory
