DMX is widely known for his harsh, gravelly voice, his extremely violent subject matter, constant [[ClusterFBomb Cluster F Bombs]] and NWordPrivileges, rampant sexism and homophobia and the frequent call-and-response lyrics used in his songs. That, and his extensive arrest record. He occasionally acts, with his most high profile acting role is probably ''Film/Cradle2TheGrave'' opposite Creator/JetLi.

He loves dogs, his levels of obsession ranging from owning a succession of beloved pets to identifying as a dog himself, frequently barking and growling in his songs and even eating dog food.

* HeyItsThatVoice: Having guest rappers Jadakiss and Styles P on a song from ''Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood'' is pretty par for the course for a rap album. Having ''Music/MarilynManson'' most certainly is not.
** Many people thought "Damien" was just DMX doing a high pitched voice. It's actually MosDef.

* AccidentalMisnaming- Used in ''Damien III''
-->'''Damien'''"What happened to the right hand, ''Light Man?''
-->'''X'''"Nah, that's ''Dark Man''
-->'''Damien'''"Well, let's get it right, then."
* AllGirlsWantBadBoys- "Good Girls, Bad Guys" from ''...And Then There Was X'' provides a somewhat humorous take on this.
* AsTheGoodBookSays- "Lord Give Me a Sign" begins with DMX quoting Isaiah 54:17.
* BadassPreacher- He always finds a way to insert a full-blown prayer track into his albums in between the gangster joints.
* BigWhat - Pretty much every [[VerbalTic second word]] in most of his songs.
* CallAndResponseSong- The ''Damien'' series, as well as ''Angel'' and a few other songs.
* CallBack- In ''Damien III''- "What happened to the right hand, Light Man?" is a CallBack to ''Damien'''s "For that nigga, I would bleed/ give him my right hand/ now that I think about it, yo, that's my man!"
* ChronicVillainy- Referenced occasionally in his ''Prayer'' songs, as well as ''Ready To Meet Him.''

* MoodWhiplash- His video for "Where Da Hood At?" is his typical violent gangster rap (sprinkled with a little gay bashing), but then it goes into a clip of "Ayo Kato," a sweet, sad tribute to a deceased friend.
* MoralDissonance- DMX will go from gangster raps about committing murder to what are essentially ''gospels'' within the same album.

->"''Musicians often put on an [[DamnItFeelsGoodToBeAGangster exaggerated persona]] when on stage to make themselves seem more legitimate to the audience. Whether it's [[BoastfulRap bragging about the number of women they lay or the fineness of the Maseratis they drive]], this kind of casual exaggeration is perhaps most common in hip-hop artists.''
