In December of '98 he made history when he released his follow-up album Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood. This made DMX the first (& only) artist in history to have 2 consecutive albums released in the same calendar year to debut al #1 on Billboard's Hot 200 Albums Chart. This album reached Triple Platinum status & includes the singles No Love For Me & Slippin'. A year later DMX would release his biggest selling album to date with  ... And Then There Was X. This album was certified 5x Platinum & features the singles What's My Name, What These Bitches Want & Party Up In Here. In 2001 he dropped the Platinum selling album The Great Depression.
