DMX Reveals Snoop, Bono Collabs On New Album
By Stereo Williams
DMX has recruited some heavy hitters for his new album. The Yonkers native hasn't dropped an album since 2015s unauthorized Redemption Of The Beast, but his next release sounds ambitious. During his appearance on Drink Champs, X shared some details about the forthcoming project.
“I got Lil Wayne, I got Snoop. I got The LOX. I got Bono — the U2 nigga.”
“The Bono joint is ‘Skyscrapers,'" X shared. "Shit’s crazy. It got a Miami feel to it. I feel like I want to shoot the video here! All muthafuckas need to do is listen to it, and we good.”
There is certainly no shortage of big names on the album. DMX talks about a particularly heartfelt track with Usher.
“It’s called ‘Letter To My Son. When I first did it, the only issue was the piano. Then my man, Ryan King Joseph, he play the violin. It was just piano on the song, and I never did a song with one instrument before. It came out crazy, it hits you. And then I heard [Joseph’s] work, and put him on the joint."
