DMX, "Slippin'"

The melancholy horns on this 1998 single grip you immediately as DMX preaches about surviving pain and suffering. X kicks the cold facts about his troubled upbringing (“Group homes and institutions prepared my a-- for jail”) as an angelic voice offers reassuring words on the hook, (“The Lord forgives you now.”)
