DMX, the legendary rapper known for hits like “Party Up (Up in Here)” and “X Gon’ Give It to Ya,” has once again made history posthumously with his latest achievement. Just days after the four year anniversary of his passing, DMX has secured the No. 1 spot on the Hard Rock Digital Song Sales category with the track “This Is the Way,” a collaboration with Five Finger Death Punch.

The unexpected pairing of DMX and the heavy metal band came about when guitarist Zoltan Bathory expressed his admiration for the rapper during an interview with Loudwire Nights. Bathory revealed that the idea to work with DMX had been discussed for years, but their schedules never aligned. It wasn’t until 2021, when DMX tragically passed away, that the opportunity to collaborate with his master recordings arose.

With the blessing to use DMX’s verses and lyrics, Five Finger Death Punch set out to create a new track that would honor the rapper’s legacy while staying true to their own sound. The result was “This Is the Way,” a powerful fusion of DMX’s iconic flow and the band’s hard-hitting instrumentals.

The success of “This Is the Way” has been met with excitement from fans and critics alike. Billboard’s announcement of the song reaching No. 1 on the Hard Rock Digital Song Sales chart is a testament to the impact that DMX continues to have on the music industry even after his passing.

This surprising achievement serves as a fitting tribute to the late rapper, showcasing his enduring influence and musical legacy. As fans continue to celebrate DMX’s contributions to the world of music, “This Is the Way” stands as a reminder of his talent and artistry that will never be forgotten.
