After watching the agonizing DMX episode of behind the music last night, I wanted nothing more then to remember some of  my happy teen moments that were associated with his career.

How's it goin down was the third single off of his debut album It's Dark and Hell Is Hot, and happens to be one of my favorite songs from 8th grade.

sigh...Honestly....VH1 really messed me up with Earl's episode. Had no idea he had been through so much as a child. I truly hope that he one day finds the peace his soul needs.

*BONUS* Watch another one of my fav DMX cut's after the jump.

Puts a lot into persepctive now right? WOW. He was really writing from the heart back then.
