During the strange time in the early 2000’s when Jet Li teamed up with various rappers and hip hop artists for action movies, he co-starred with DMX for 2003’s Cradle 2 the Grave. Li played Su, a Taiwanese cop who is tracking stolen diamonds and DMX is Fait, the leader of the crew who stole the diamonds but the pair team up when a bigger threat, Marc Dacascos, shows up. Since DMX was co-starring, there had to be a song for the soundtrack and it turned out to be one of DMX’s biggest and most recognizable hits, X Gon’ Give it To Ya, which has since been featured in shows like Rick & Morty and movies and trailers, like the recent Deadpool trailers. For the official music video, it seems like it’s more for a Fast & Furious movie, as it’s mostly DMX racing around while clips from the movie are briefly seen against the windshield of his car. You can check it out below.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
