Lets get right to it. DMX at the Howard Theatre was nothing less than phenomenal. The amount of energy and emotion that X brings to the stage is like no other. When it seems that the world looks at his life as destructive, complicated and controversial, X dispels that negative energy while on stage. With a completely sold out show in the Nations Capital, fans filled the every part of the venue. With a prayer to kick off the night, X stormed the stage like a dog off the leash followed by the RuffRyder family. “X Gon’ Give it to ya” set the tone for the entire night followed by back to back hits including the debut song “Still Scratching Feat. Styles P”. Being completely unashamed of his beliefs, X took every available moment to preach to the crowd words of encouragement and faith. Owning nothing to himself, X gave all glory to God. It’s amazing to see this man still give his all to the very people who’ve never given up on him and have remained his true dogz4life.
