The hip-hop world has been hellbent on maintaining DMX’s legacy since his horrific, untimely death due to complications following a drug overdose earlier this year. He was an artist who meant so much to so many people, and many people have made it a priority to give his catalog the proper send-off it deserves. Swizz Beatz, a producer and artist, has been at the forefront of these campaigns, and he recently opened up about his frustrations with some of the fake friends he saw around the late rapper.
Swizz has been serving as a steward for DMX’s newly announced posthumous release, Exodus, in an attempt to be anything but that. Swizz Beatz has spoken about the final song he worked on with X, as well as letting fans know that a collaboration between Earl, Jay Z, and Nas is definitely in the works.
All of that has now been authenticated, along with a slew of other tracks, thanks to DMX’s label sharing the album’s tracklist today. “EXODUS 1:7 OFFICIAL TRACK LIST (5/28).
