We Right Here is a song by American hip hop recording artist DMX, released as the first single from his fourth album The Great Depression (2001).



The song shows the use of Pro Tools ability to create voice masking and voice doubling, with the fact that DMX does his vocals on the microphone, and then does them over the top of his previous audio track, to create a hazed, mellow sound, much like that of someone rapping with a 40 a Day voice.

Music video[edit]

The music video was shot in his birth city of Baltimore, Maryland (unlike previous videos shot in New York City), and contains cameo appearances from The LOX.
