For this week's Throwback Thursday video, we take to Yonkers, NY and the one and only DMX!!!

Dark Man X has had many a hit and guest appearances over the years, but 'How's It Goin' Down' has always been one of my (many) favorites. The delivery and flow of the song, as well as the beat and hook just always made it a good joint to bump in your vehicle... even if your lady's with you. there's just not a lot of story-telling in Hip-Hop anymore.

As one of the pioneers for Ruff Ryders, X helped catapult the careers of Eve, The LOX (Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Luch), Swizz Beatz and his protege and often movie co-star, Drag-On.

X has also had his share of legal troubles over the years, but since his latest release from jail/prison, he's been doing okay. He pops up with a song here and there, but with his music AND acting catalog, the dog should be set for life, even if he decides to stay out of the spotlight.
