The hip-hop world is a place where untimely deaths are tragically common, whether they be a result of gun violence or substance abuse. One of the most heartbreaking losses to fall into the latter category in recent years was DMX, who died in 2021 after a heart attack that came following a cocaine overdose. He was just 50 years old at the time, leaving behind an astounding 17 children and a musical legacy like no other.

Obviously, one of X’s best-known titles is the Swizz Beatz-produced “Party Up,” an anthem known to make any function rowdy. Not only is the beat sure to get a crowd dancing and jumping, but the late lyricist’s ferocious bars will also incite hunger in others too. “Off the chain, I leave ni**as soft in the brain / ‘Cause ni**as still want the fame off the name,” he spits on the second verse. “First of all, you ain’t rapped long enough / To be f**king with me, and you, you ain’t strong enough,” the New Yorker says afterward as his confidence grows.

Quotable Lyrics:

Off the chain, I leave ni**as soft in the brain
‘Cause ni**as still want the fame off the name
First of all, you ain’t rapped long enough
To be f**king with me, and you, you ain’t strong enough
