Dame Grease put in work on that one. I wasnt feelin some of the production on Flesh Blood TBH. DMX went as hard but it didnt compliment him as well
It's better than Ready To Die and Reasonable Doubt. One of those albums you can play from start to finish without skipping anything really.
The problem with Flesh Of My Flesh... is too much Swizz.
With Swizz, although I think he did a good job, his beats didn't have the same depth as the beats on IDAHIH. Too many of the songs sound the same.
Grease only had one beat on the album. He and P.K. did 80% of IDAHIH and the main reason that album is so dope is how perfectly their beats fit X's style.
And yeah I can't name more than 5 or 6 rappers that had a higher peak than DMX. He had 2 #1 albums in the SAME YEAR. And he did this while spitting the hardest shit you ever heard. I can't think of another hardcore artist that sold as much as DMX.
He's a legend, I don't care what anybody says.
