Sometimes my dumb streak spreads wide, like the mighty Mississippi. How else can I explain my can't-stop-hitting-repeat love of the new DMX single, "X Gon' Give it to Ya"? As the thoughtful scribes at MTV.com put it, here the artist is "in typical X form." You know. You hear the song - the loud threats, tourettic shouts, military pacing - and you say with a wink, "that's my X. so typical!"
Mark my words: "X Gon' Give it to Ya" is poised to become the date rape anthem of 2003. Sorry, Mudvayne! Better luck next year.
