Fans React to DMX's 'Exodus': "Thanks For This Gift!"

DMX's new album Exodus is out now and the project's release is an undeniably emotional moment for fans of the late rapper. X, born Earl Simmons, died April 9 at age 50, and thus, Exodus now serves as an elegy for the rap superstar's legacy. 

Exodus features DMX's former Ruff Ryders cohorts The LOX and producer Swizz Beatz, alongside industry titans like Usher, Jay-Z, Nas, Bono and Alicia Keys. 

"Wow X sounds so good on this album," tweeted user @NavJosh. "Wish he was here to see all this love and appreciation! #EXODUSALBUM"

"Letter to my Son (Call your father) on #DMX's #Exodus" @PaulaEdgar tweeted "whoa #EXODUSALBUM"

Fans are reacting strongly to Exodus. You can check out some early reactions below. 



Me when DMX’s son started singing on “Walking in the Rain” and then it went straight to the “Exodus Skit”. I wasn’t ready #EXODUSALBUM

The new DMX album exceeded all my expectations. ❌ holds his own against Elite MCs like Hov & Nas, while comfortably spittin fire with prime lyricists e.g. Griselda, Weezy. I've always enjoyed his aggresive style and the beats are fuego. Thats my DAWG, DOPE album #EXODUSALBUM
