Twenty-one years ago, DMX’s debut album changed rap music. It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot is every bit as fearsome as its title, and holds up today as a classic record from an inimitable artist. Now, fresh out of jail, DMX has announced a tour in celebration of the album’s 20th anniversary last year. Starting March 8 in Oklahoma City, OK, DMX will be touring until until May 7, when he’ll finish things off with a show in Pittsburgh. Along the way he’ll make stops in most major American cities, including New York, where he’ll perform at Irving Plaza. Find the full list of dates below.
