Download Hood Blues Mp3 by DMX Feat. Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine
American rapper, songwriter, and actor, Earl Simmons, known by his stage name DMX, dish out a new single “Hood Blues” featuing “Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine” of his Exodus Album project.
DMX’s upcoming Exodus is dropping Friday, and today marks the arrival of the long-awaited Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine collaboration “Hood Blues.” Featuring lengthy verses from Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, and Conway The Machine, the lyrically-driven posse cut captures the grimy and raw energy previously seen on It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot.
Clocking in at four and a half minutes, “Hood Blues” provides ample space for each emcee to hold it down. Given that this one was recorded prior to X’s tragic passing, it’s all the more rewarding to see the chemistry unfolding as the track progresses. Following up Westside, Benny, and Machine, X holds it down with the closing statement. “I grew up with the dark side, apartheid, where going against the grain would get you kidnapped and hog-tied,” he growls, his intimidating presence emphasized by his signature growls. “X the illest ni*ga, realest ni*ga /never been scared, I’m a fearless nig*a.”
DMX began rapping in the early 1990s and released his debut album It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot in 1998, to both critical acclaim and commercial success, selling 251,000 copies within its first week of release.
