| July 8, 2014 | 0 Comments


Los Angeles native and current New Mexico resident, Word One, was dubbed as DMX’s newest artist and signee to Bloodline Records effective June 1st of 2014. Word One came across DMX through strong connections in the music industry, thanks to close friends and legendary hip-hop group, Bone Thugs N Harmony, who invited the rapper on tour with them in El Paso, Texas. Flesh and Krayzie pitched Word One to the tour manager and 6 days later, he was opening for DMX.

Not too long after the tour, the rapper crossed paths with DMX’s manager and the director of Ruff Ryders, Montana. Though at the time Word One had a label situation with Sony Records, Montana insisted and proposed that he could manage the artist, drawn in by his top-notch performance level, stage presence and ability to woo the crowd. Word One shared the exciting news with DMX during Houston’s Summer Fest concert series, and [DMX] replied with an enthusiastic “YESSSSSSS”, expressing that he “wants to be a part of it”.
