Exodus may have arrived after he passed away, but DMX completed the album prior to his death. Swizz Beatz recently told GQ that X wrapped up his eighth LP well before he passed away from a drug overdose back in April. The rapper, born Earl Simmons, has been recording for the album since last summer after his Verzuz battle with Snoop Dogg. He felt inspired after receiving so much admiration and respect during the event even from his “opponent” Snoop. From that point on, X was recording fresh music and getting in shape so that he could take the album on the road for a tour. The native's latest collection of songs is full of features for the first time ever, yet Swizz guarantees that the overall sound and authenticity of the album won't be compromised.

“We wanted people to know that they were in for a hell of a ride out the gate, starting with a classic DMX, Lox, Ruff Riders, Swizz Beatz track,” Swizz says about the intro “That's My Dog.” “Set the tone, no intro, no nothing. Just as soon as you press play, it gets right to it and those tracks people knew us for.”
