A posthumous album of all-new material from late rapper DMX, Exodus, is due out on May 28th on Def Jam Recordings. X's longtime collaborator producer Swizz Beatz is listed as both the executive producer and producer of the collection.
“My brother X was one of the most pure and rare souls I’ve ever met," Swizz said in a statement about the Grammy-nominated Ruff Ryders MC and actor (born Earl Simmons), who died at age 50 on April 9 after suffering what officials called a catastrophic cardiac arrest. "He lived his life dedicated to his family and music. Most of all, he was generous with his giving and loved his fans beyond measure. This album, X couldn’t wait for his fans all around the world to hear and show just how much he valued each and every single person that has supported him unconditionally."
