Since being released from prison last month, rapper DMX has been working “nonstop, everyday” on his forthcoming LP, titled Redemption Of The Beast. “I kind of took it back to how I felt on my first album — the hunger, the energy, the hardness of it,” says DMX.
Producers like Swizz Beatz, Dame Grease and Caviar have contributed beats to the album, although the rapper says that he has mostly been at the studio laying down rhymes by himself.
“I’ve had a lot of late nights in the studio, getting it in, getting it back to where it’s supposed to be,” says DMX. The rapper also notes that the lyrical focus of the album will be “bringing hip-hop back to where it’s supposed to be. It’s not at a good place right now… [There’s] a lot of whack rappers out there. It’s too corny.”
