Yonkers rap icon DMX is readying his first album in nearly nine years.
During an interview with N.O.R.E. for an upcoming episode of his “Drink Champs” podcast, X confirmed that the project will feature “a couple” rappers from the new generation including Pop Smoke.
DMX also revealed that his long-awaited album will feature Griselda (gru-zel-dah) Records’ own Benny the Butcher, Conway the Machine, and Westside Gunn.
X’s last studio album, Undisputed, was released in September 2012.
Back in 2019, he signed a new deal with Def Jam, where he released five albums including his 1998 debut It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot. All five of those albums debuted at #1.
