The legacy continues.
Two weeks before its release, the tracklist for DMXs posthumous album Exodus 1:7 has been revealed.
Executive produced by Swizz Beatz, the star-studded set includes collaborations with Lil Wayne, Alicia Keys, Snoop Dogg, The LOX, Benny the Butcher, and Moneybagg Yo. Nas makes two appearances on Walking in the Rain and Bath Salts, which also features JAY-Z. Usher lends his vocals to Letter to My Son (Call Your Father), while DMXs youngest son Exodus Simmons is credited on Walking in the Rain.
Additionally, the 13 tracks include U2s Bono on Skyscrapers, which was originally recorded for Swizz unreleased album Haute Living in 2011. Its crazy. It got like a Miami feel to it, X told N.O.R.E.s Drink Champs of the track.
Earlier this week, Swizz held a listening session for the album. Attendees raved about Xs latest body of work, calling it perfect for his legacy, while one DJ said it brought me to tears.
Exodus 1:7, DMXs first album since 2012s Undisputed, arrives May 28. People should hear what he wanted them to hear. Nothing should stop the creativity from flowing because its actually what he had fun doing, Swizz told Hot 97. This was his gift to his audience and his family and his fans. Its only right that people should get the gift that he left them.
