Top Five (Himself)
As I just mentioned, DMX could pull off comedy just as well as he could pull off bravado and aggression. If you need proof, then look no further than his brief, but crucial, cameo in the Chris Rock comedy, Top Five. In this movie, we find him in a jail cell, which, according to him, is where he lives. Jail is his home.
But like the rapper himself, you can’t just pigeonhole the man, and in this great scene, DMX says he wants to be a singer, to which he belts out “Smile”. Chris Rock, of course, watches on in horror at just how horrible it sounds. But DMX never takes himself seriously and again plays against type. It’s actually a pretty sweet scene, and you can’t help but smile when you see it.
