Lord Give Me A Sign
Label: Sony Urban Music/Columbia
It's easy to marvel at DMX's contradictions. His erratic, unlawful behavior is well-chronicled, and drug-use widely rumored, but the New Jersey rapper also barks out Bible verses, making him somewhat of a hip-hop evangelist. "Lord Give Me a Sign" is the latest in the rapper's long line of hip-hop hymnals, though this one comes off as more generic than previous attempts. There's a lot of talk about a generalized struggle and a genial Jesus, and the beat is bit plodding. For a more engaging look at DMX's walk with Jesus, check out "Angel."
