After being released from his Sony Music deal earlier this year, rapper DMX has signed a deal with the music division of Canadian online gaming company Bodog Entertainment.
The rapper plans to release his next two albums, “Walk With Me Now” and “You’ll Fly With Me Later” in 2008 via Bodog. “I’m thankful for the fact that Bodog believes in me,” says DMX. “We share the same vision and the fact that they see in me the same thing I see. I’ll show Bodog Music how it’s supposed to be done, and we’ll get to where we’re supposed to be. You got a dog for life.”
Bodog Music is a part of the digital entertainment company, Bodog Entertainment International Group. The company has several U.S. locations but is based in Vancouver. It recently snagged international distribution rights for the Wu-Tang Clan’s comeback album, “8 Diagrams.”
Bodog also distributes Warcon Records and several film soundtracks in Europe, including “Little Miss Sunshine” and “Nacho Libre.”
DMX’s lone album for Sony after leaving Def Jam, “Year of the Dog … Again” was released in 2006 and has sold 329,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
