Posted May 10, 2021

DMX‘s final album is on the way, and now its official title and release date have been announced.

Executive Producer Swizz Beatz took to social media on Monday to reveal the posthumous album ‘Exodus’ will arrive this month (May 28) and serves as X’s eighth and final album.

My brother X was one of the most pure and rare souls I’ve ever met,” Swizz said in a statement. “He lived his life dedicated to his family and music. Most of all, he was generous with his giving and loved his fans beyond measure. This album, X couldn’t wait for his fans all around the world to hear and show just how much he valued each and every single person that has supported him unconditionally.”

According to a press release, “themes of redemption weave throughout Exodus,” which is also the name of DMX’s youngest son, Exodus Simmons. The artwork was shot by Jonathan Mannion, who captured some of DMX’s most iconic images throughout his career. X also had the Bible passage “Exodus 1:7” tattooed on his neck.

X had began working on the project months ahead of his death and even spoke on his excitement surrouding the project during a recent sit down with Nore’s ‘Drink Champs’ podcast.

‘Exodus’ will be X’s first album since 2012’s ‘Undisputed’ and his first on Def Jam in 18 years. The album will feature appearances from the late 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.

He also had a collaboration with U2’s Bono called “Skyscrapers.” which was originally recorded for Swizz’ album ‘Haute Living’ in 2011 and featured Kanye West. X revealed: “It got like a Miami feel to it. I feel like I want to shoot the video here.”
