DMX, It’s Dark And Hell Is Hot (1998)

Label: Ruff Ryderz/Def Jam

B.o.B: “I remember that I found a $20 bill at school, and his album just so happened to come out. This was when “Ruff Ryders Anthem” was out. My brother was old enough to buy it, so he went to the store and bought it for me. I dubbed it to a tape, and would listen to that album over and over and study it, to learn how to rap.”
