"The Unfortunate Child"

"Many Dreams", the lead single off of DJ DX's newest album titled The Unfortunate Child. This song comes jam packed with a classic boom-bap beat and lyrics that tell stories about DX. Throw in a sample of Eminem's "Lose Yourself" and DJ Madden on the cuts and you've got an instant hit. This track is something that any fan of the old school hip-hop sound will love. DX used a pretty unique location to film this video, and the shots of the record scratching by Madden add a sense of being right in the 90's. Overall a great track and a solid video. Check it out and let me know what you think! - Vinny Sciascia
