Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood is the second album by American rapper DMX. The album was released on December 22, 1998, a little more than seven months after his debut album, It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot. It entered the charts at number 1 (and stayed there for three consecutive weeks) with over 670,000 units shipped in the first week. The album eventually went 3x platinum in the US.
DMX became the second rapper to have two albums released in the same calendar year debut at number one on the Billboard 200. The latter album to have done so was released posthumously by Tupac Shakur under the alias Makaveli, thus making DMX the first rapper to release two number one albums by the same name in under a year.
