The #DMXWeek Shuffle – Jayo Felony’s “Whatcha Gonna Do” Ft. DMX

Delivering a resume of raw talent and little luck with recorded material, DMX had a lot to prove when he signed with Def Jam in 1997. Yet, with major plans for their amped upstart, the famed label gave X a show and prove role on numerous singles from their deep roster of artists. Surprisingly, one of the first was on “Whatcha Gonna Do,” the lead cut from San Diego gangsta rapper Jayo Felony.

While the each MC held their own over DJ Silk’s trumpeting beat, Darkman Earl stole the show with an ideal blend of both aggressive and boastful bars, which showed at the time that his unrefined persona was finally adapting a more universal approach his employer could properly promote.
