DMX’s Grand Champ Celebrates 15 Years Since Release

DMX’s Up In Here provided the soundtrack to one of my favourite childhood film moments in Be Like Mike. I had no idea at the time who DMX was, which would be blasphemous if still true now. Although a murky personal life, his talent as an artist is undeniable.

While Up In Here is still X’s most successful single of all time, Grand Champ features some even better songs. The album was released on this day in 2003 and features the likes of Where The Hood At? and X Gon’ Give It To Ya as an International Bonus Track.

Kanye West, Swizz Beatz and No I.D are among producers on Grand Champ alongside guest vocals from 50 Cent, Styles P, Eve, Jadakiss & Cam’ron. The album debuted at number one in the US Billboard 200 selling over 300,000 copies first week.
