This week's cover story asks the question, "can DMX ever stay out of trouble long enough to top the charts again?" Divining such an answer may take more than mere words can provide. So for you, our readers, we have here three songs to help you decide for yourselves if DMX (or at the very least, his music) has a shot.
Check out these exclusive tracks and, if you're so inclined, leave a comment below as to what you think of them.
Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
