Throwback Thursday: X Gon' Give it to Ya - DMX

Speed: 95 bpm

Recommended bpm range: 90 to 95 bpm

The DJ's Take: One cool thing about Deadpool coming out - now we can blow the dust off one of my least favorite tracks from the early 00s. Of course, it's also go-to background music for generic action movie trailers. Guaranteed to drive up the testosterone in the room by about 36.4%. Try mixing or mashing up with tracks like How Do U Want It - Tupac and Baby - Brandy.

As a bonus, Deadpool has also resurrected Salt N Pepa's Shoop, which we covered back in 2010. If the feeling's right, I'd try mixing that with tracks like Old Thing Back - Matoma and Back To Sleep - Chris Brown.
