April 18th, 2019, DMX comes back to Phoenix, AZ for the “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot 20th Anniversary Tour” that took place at The Van Buren. And it was a night to remember that left DMX fans wanting more when the night came to an end.
The night started with local DJ M’Rocka spinning music to get the people ready and pumped for when DMX was ready to take the stage later that night. He played music mixes from artist like Jay-Z, 2-Pac, among other big rap artists and people was feeling and dancing to the music. After M’Rocka’s performance, a couple of rappers took the stage to keep the crowd moving and ready for DMX’s return to the stage, and they did a very good job in keeping people singing and dancing.
When finally time came for DMX to take the stage, he opened with an Intro that carried over to his first song of the night that was “We Right Here” take from “The Great Depression” album. Fans sang and participated with DMX with every song he performed that glorious night that featuredHits like “One More Road to Cross”, “Who We Be”, “Get At Me Dog”, the “Ruff Ryders Anthem” which people sang every word of the song with X himself and from that moment on you felt the electricity all over the venue and the love that people have for DMX.
It would not be a DMX concert with such hits like “X Gon’ Give It To Ya” and “Party Up” that pretty much ended a glorious performance from DMX. After this tour, I hope he goes back to the studio and starts recording a new album that will give fans more memorable songs that we can remember forever.
In conclusion, I am thankful that DMX put together this North American Tour, and hopefully, you can catch it so you can have a great time with a legendary rapper like him.
We at Global AZ Media thank all the performers as well as The Van Buren and all of their staff For hosting such a memorable event.
