Just two months after his tragic death at the age of 50, DMX’s posthumous album is released, Exodus, has come.
What could be X’s last ride contains 13 songs. The star-studded tracklist includes names like Jay-Z, Nas, who has two roles on the project: Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Swizz Beatz, Alicia Keys, Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Benny The Butcher, The LOX, Moneybagg Yo, Bono and other. The pop-smoke collaboration expected on the album did not make it into the final version.
The LP is produced by X’s frequent collaborator Swizz Beatz, who was closely involved with the album. “My brother X was one of the purest and rarest souls I have ever met,” Swizzy recently said in a statement about the project. “He dedicated his life to his family and his music. Most of all, he was generous with his gifts and loved his fans beyond measure. With this album, X couldn’t wait for his fans all over the world to hear and show how much he valued each and every person who unconditionally supported him. “
X spent some time in Memphis last year with Swizz and his team completing the LP. Unfortunately, it was not released before his death in April. X, born Earl Simmons, suffered a heart attack on April 2 at his White Plains, NY home. After spending a week in the hospital for life support, he died a week later on April 9 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on April 24 and retired the following day after a private ceremony.
The legacy continues.
