Which track didn’t make it to DMX’s “Exodus” album?
Other rumors have also emerged following the clandestine live streaming of the album, with one of them talking about a special collab between X and Pop Smoke, being snubbed from the final cut of DMX’s “Exodus” album. According to Tony Hanes of DA DOME, the song didn’t make it “because of a situation but Swizz didn’t go into detail.”
Swizz Beatz’s comments on his late friend and the new album
Producer Swizz Beatz also had a lot to say about the album and the late rapper who was his close friend. “My brother X was one of the most pure and rare souls I’ve ever met,” he said. “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,” he added, according to reports.
The late rapper’s previous collaborations with Jay-Z and Nas
DMX and Jay-Z have previously collaborated as well on tracks like “Blackout,” “It’s Murda,” and “Money, Cash, Hoes”. Whereas, Nas and the late rapper joined forces on songs like “Life Is What You Make It” and “Grand Finale.” But this is the first time the three great rappers will come together to showcase their skills on DMX’s latest “Exodus” album and will surely be a treat!
DMX passed away on April 2, reportedly being hospitalized for what seemed to be a drug overdose which led to a heart attack, at his home in White Plains, New York. He was 50 at the time of his death. His family also issued a statement via a press representative confirming his death, according to reports.
