Â« Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows. Â»
Many emcees endorse a prophetic role and have some real constructive criticism to offer as social commentators. DMX is one of them.
In fact, emceeing is a hard task and you have to maintain a strong spirit if you want to counter the numerous attacks from your enemies. Moreover, your fight will make more sense if you are a person of faith.
In the name of Jesus, DMX raises his hands to the sky and will open many viewers’ eyes.
Look at my people’s pain. Look at black people’s pain. Look at the whole world’s misery.
There are atrocities committed in this world and catastrophes like the hurricane that devastated Louisiana and AIDS. A strong believer shall fear no evil, even in times of darkness. DMX confidently relies on God.
Electric guitars, catchy beats, violins introduce the beautiful video and DMX gives the younger generations a strong message of faith and hope for the world. The beautiful vocals are inspired by gospel songs.
Walk with DMX through the desert, hear his strong desperation calls, watch the world coming to its own demise. Like the prophet Isaiah, you gotta pray with faith and watch for the Lord’s sign. In times of drought, you gotta visualize the tiny clouds in your mind, before the first drops of rain become a reality.
Faith is always rewarded and DMX transported into the world of spirituality where the impossible can become possible- if you first believe.
Well done, DMX! I recommend this video to all of you hip hop heads. Don’t sleep on it. Watch it here.
