Released as the 3rd single from his debut studio album "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot" in '98, Ruff Ryders' Anthem is still one of the greatest track to dominate the hip hop scene by the late DMX.
Many may not know this, but the track was initially rejected by DMX who claimed the beat wasn't raw enough. It wasn't until the Founders of Ruff Ryder Indy Darrin "Dee" Dean and Joaquin "Waah" Dean convinced X to give the track a chance (Well, apparently X lost a bet to Dee) that he did so, and we're sooooo glad X jumped onboard!
In honour of his contribution to hiphop and its culture, here's one of our favourite track from the king. RIP X.
