DMX at Revolution Live July 6

Success in boxing isn't strictly measured in power punches and knockouts. A fighter must also prove he's resilient in the ring by overcoming certain defeat to rally back and go the distance. Similarly, rappers — such as DMX — have to rise above adversity, tackling both professional and personal hurdles in their pursuit of greatness.

Since 1998, DMX's controversial legal troubles have often upstaged his music career. A rape charge, felony drug possession, and multiple traffic violations frequently overshadowed chart-topping success, platinum record sales, and critical accolades. But true to his 1998 track "Slippin'," the rapper has managed to get "back on [his] feet" and "tear shit up" every time he has slipped.

Now, a year after being released from an Arizona state prison mental health facility, DMX is on the road promoting his seventh full-length record, Undisputed, and proving that endurance is the true measure of a fighter's unwavering commitment to the game.

After slippin', DMX is back on his feet.
