Swizz Beatz To Produce Tracks For New DMX Album
Swizz Beatz is back in the doghouse. DMX and Swizzy are going to be collaborating for the Ruff Ryder’s new album, HipHopDX reports.
“Swizz and X are always working on a song,” X’s rep tells the site. “Swizz is producing several tracks on X’s album that he’s working on.”
While no release date has been set for the project, the two music chums have been spotted together, most recently at Alicia Keys’ NYC show back in April.
One of their most popular collaborations “Ruff Ryders Anthem” recently turned 15 years old and the beathsmith revealed that X originally didn’t want to record it.
“I had [the beat] for a minute and I remember X didn’t even want to do it—he thought it was a rock-and-roll beat,” he told VIBE in September. “Then he did it and I remember being right here [in Harlem] on 125th, sitting down in front of the mart and seeing every car pass by playing the anthem. [Laughs] I thought I could retire then.”
