Album: Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood
Producer: DJ SHOK
Label: Ruff Ryders, Def Jam

DMX has found himself in the midst of legal drama for most of his adult life, and "Slippin'" offers an unfortunate insight into what may the root cause of that behavior. X explains his youthful exploits in harrowing detail over a sufficiently moody Grover Washington Jr. sample, giving some context to his oft-publicized problems with the law. It's a sad story that makes you reconsider, and possibly stop judging, the rapper's complicated life path.
