New York rap legend DMX months before his death in April 2021 revealed plans to release a new album. The feature-packed album, “Exodus”, is finally available on streaming platforms following its release on Friday, 28 May 2021.
“Exodus” is DMX’s eighth studio album with almost every track on the project featuring efforts from fellow New York icons like Jay-Z, Nas, and The LOX.
Other featured acts on “Exodus” include veterans like Lil Wayne and Snoop Dogg while the new school rappers are also well represented with the Griselda Crew and Moneybagg Yo.
Aside from rappers, DMX also employed efforts from singers like Bono, Alicia Keys, and Usher on “Exodus”.
The new album, “Exodus”, is a follow-up to DMX’s previous project, ‘Undisputed’, nearly nine years after.
