DMX Releasing New Album in Spring 2012
Away from music for a few years, rapper DMX is planning a comeback with a new album, with a spring 2012 release. Scheduled for March 27, DMX’s seventh studio album, Undisputed, is being released through United Music & Media Group, and its first single, “Already,” is coming out over the next few weeks. In addition to producers Swizz Beatz and Deezle, Undisputed features appearances by Busta Rhymes, Tyrese, and Jennifer Hudson. About the album and DMX’s comeback, Swizz Beatz said: “Expect the unexpected. Expect the new improved. Expect hip-hop. Expect real music. Expect the Dog to be back.”
After being released from an Arizona prison over the summer, the rapper has been carefully planning a comeback, performing at the BET Hip-Hop Awards and doing an interview on 106 & Park. For the latter, he revealed video for single “Last Hope,” which features a beat previously used by Drake. Regarding his sentence, six months for a probation violation, the rapper said on the program: “I wouldn’t change one thing. That made me the man I am today and I love the way I am.”
About using the same beat as Drake, he explained: “I didn’t know it was his song. I heard the beat, the hook. I’m like, ‘I gotta beast on that.’ Thanks for bringing it to the table, I guess.”
In reference to his upcoming album, DMX’s rep Nakia Walker said: “Earl has so much more to offer the world. His latest project has been on hold for so long! It is now time for X to redefine the world of hip-hop with his highly-anticipated album of inspirational, painful, and street-accredited rhymes. It is time to let the Dog out of the kennel.”
Even with a comeback, however, DMX isn’t solely spending his time in the studio. In an interview, he mentioned: “I’m feeling good, I’m feeling real good. I’m gonna see my daughter, I just got off the phone with my wife. I’m going to see my daughter while the sun is up then I’m in the studio, man.”
