DMX Signs New Deal with Def Jam

  /  09.20.2019

DMX is going back to where it all began.

The Ruff Ryders icon has signed a new deal with Def Jam Records, according to XXL.

DMX released his 1998 debut It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot on the legendary label and became one of Def Jam’s top-selling artists throughout the late 1990s and early 2000s. He released five albums on the label, including 1998’s Flesh of My Flesh, Blood of My Blood and 1999’s … And Then There Was X. His last album for the label was 2003’s Grand Champ.

Swizz Beatz confirmed the signing during a recent interview with “The Breakfast Club.” “Just re-signed so it’s gonna be a good year for him, God willing,” he said. “I just want it to happen so he can go to where he been supposed to have went.”

Following his homecoming, he hit the road on a 32-date U.S. tour in celebration of the 20th anniversary of It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot. He has performed at festivals including Rolling Loud Miami and even popped up during Kanye West’s Sunday Service at Coachella in April.
