Due June 28 via Ruff Ryders/Def Jam, the set is led by the single "Give Em What They Want," which recently premiered on AOL Music. A video for the cut was shot last week in Miami.
Although the track list for "Here We Go Again" is still under wraps, DMX has teamed with in-demand producer Scott Storch as well as longtime collaborators Swizz Beatz and P.K.
The set is the follow-up to 2003's "Grand Champ," which debuted at No. 1 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 1.15 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Of late, DMX (real name: Earl Simmons) has been in the news as much for his brushes with the law as for his music. Last month, he was arrested after the car he was driving struck another vehicle on New York's Major Deegan Expressway, causing the second car to then hit an unmarked police cruiser.
In June 2004, he was taken into custody for driving his car into a gate at JFK Airport and telling the parking lot attendant he was a federal agent. He pleaded guilty in that case and received a conditional discharge, meaning that future violations could result in jail time.
