    I think X started sounding like the X we know now when he did "Born Loser"

    Yes. They battled in prison. Solo got out before X and dropped Spellbound, then X got out after and said Solo stole his style.

    "That's dead, who made this style, Solo or X" - Nas "Zone Out"

    Wonder when Suge came to NY to scout DMX and had him battling cats- which version of DMX came to play.

    I would think in the early 90s he still had the old school flow He didnt rhyme frenetically the way we know him now

    It's dope that X rapped so long he eventually developed his own completely original style







    I used to listen to that deeper record heavy even though I never had a good quality version

    I had made a best of unreleased and features X double cd in like 01 back when label makers for CDs first came out..
