DMX announced the news (Feb. 8), in a brief snippet of an unreleased interview with N.O.R.E. and DJ Efn for their “Drink Champs podcast.”
DMX recruited some heavy hitters for his upcoming album
During a preview of his upcoming appearance on the podcast, Dark Man X let it be known that he’s bridging the gap by collaborating with some of the younger acts.
The Yonkers rap icon is readying his first album in nearly nine years. On “Drink Champs” podcast, X confirmed that the project will feature “a couple” rappers from the new generation including Pop Smoke. 'X' also revealed that his long-awaited album will feature Griselda Records’ own Benny the Butcher, Conway the Machine, and Westside Gunn.
“That’s what type of new I’m doing,” said DMX, who never met the late Brooklyn rapper, but acknowledged their similarities. “The growl and everything, I guess it was just a coincidence.”
No release date as of yet, X's forthcoming project but we’ll keep you updated. Via
