Exodus, which features all-original material and themes of redemption, is scheduled for release on May 28 through Def Jam Recordings. The album, X’s first Def Jam release since 2003’s Grand Champ, shares its name with one of the rapper’s sons, Exodus Simmons.
“My brother X was one of the most pure and rare souls I’ve ever met,” Swizz Beatz said in a statement when announcing the album. “He lived his life dedicated to his family and music. Most of all, he was generous with his giving and loved his fans beyond measure. This album, X couldn’t wait for his fans all around the world to hear and show just how much he valued each and every single person that has supported him unconditionally.”
DMX, born Earl Simmons, died on April 9 after experiencing a heart attack triggered by a drug overdose. He was 50.
