DMX’s legacy lives on.
According to RAP-UP, new information regarding a posthumous DMX project has surfaced after the hip-hop icon died from a heart attack Friday (April 9). An 8-min interview with Lisa Evers of Fox 5 New York with close friend & Ruff Ryders’ associate, Darrin “Dee” Dean revealed that he was working diligently on a new album.
Yeah, we was over there for a couple of months. And it’s just sad that he ain’t going to be able to music. We did all the albums. But this album right here is special. Like you probably never heard no music like you heard on this one that we did just now. This is probably one of his great albums.
DMX’s manager, Craig Brodhead, was present for the Evers’ interview stating, “He was excited about it. He couldn’t wait to promote it and get out there with the music.” Brodhead spoke about a television series that was in production before his death that highlighted DMX’s personal life in relation to his 17 children, uniting them, and repairing relationships with them.
Producer Hitmaka shared evidence of him working in the studio prior to his death via Instagram.
A HBO documentary was reportedly completed in addition to the new album that is to be released on Def Jam Records in the new deal that he signed to in 2019. During one of his final interviews with N.O.R.E.’s “Drink Champs” podcast earlier this year, X revealed some of the featured guests including Pop Smoke, Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg, Alicia Keys, and Usher, as well as members of the Griselda crew including Benny the Butcher, Conway the Machine, and Westside Gunn.
