This past weekend marked one month since DMX tragically passed away. His death was certainly an unexpected one and it arrived in the midst of the late rapper’s plan for a comeback album. Before his death, he confirmed the project, which is titled Exodus, would feature the likes of Griselda Records, Pop Smoke, U2’s Bono, Usher, Alicia Keys, and more. Now, a release date for it has been shared.
According to Rolling Stone, Exodus will arrive on May 28. It’s executive produced by Swizz Beatz and will be his first release since 2012’s Undisputed. Swizz spoke about DMX and the upcoming album in a press release.
“My brother X was one of the most pure and rare souls I’ve ever met. He lived his life dedicated to his family and music,” he said. “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.”
The cover art for the project was also shared, one that was captured by Jonathan Mannion who was responsible for some of DMX’s most iconic photos.
