“DMX is the future of rap!” – Lyor Cohen

DMX is a great storyteller — very candid and reflective. And this book embodies his personality.

This book goes over X’s whole life up to his signing with Def Jam and releasing his first album. I really liked the stories from his street life. They range from how he used to rob people with no weapons — just a vicious dog — to his auditioning for Def Jam executives with his jaw wired shut from a street beat down he took from a group of robbery victims over the years. E.A.R.L. is much deeper than barks and aggressive rhymes.
