Fans hoping to get their hands on DMX's upcoming new album will have to wait a bit longer than expected with reports claiming his comeback LP has been pushed back to this summer.
According to reports, X fans can show their support once the album drops in late June.
DMX has announced that after several delays, his highly anticipated seventh studio album "Undisputed" will be released on June 26th 2012. X's manager, Jason Fowler spoke about the album via his FaceBook account stating, "DMX New album will be out June 26th 2012 -- his new single is out now -- "I Don't Dance" feat Machine Gun Kelly -- call your radio stations and request it, Let's go! There will be no more DMX album push backs ... it could possibly move up but no more push backs," Fowler added. (Loud Music)
Last month, X revealed his upcoming LP would likely be a one-and-done with United Music & Media Group.
Although DMX's first full-length in six years is slated to come out on March 27 via United Music & Media Group, the rapper says that fans shouldn't expect to see a new album hitting shelves on that date. "I don't see it being March 27," he says. "The fact that [the label] chose to tell me that makes me reconsider whether or not I made the right decision to f*ck with them. It's only one album, though. It'll be what it is. But I think [it will come out] second quarter, definitely." The Yonkers, New York-bred emcee also cited the label for not holding up its end of their deal. Overall, DMX says that his first experience at UMMG has been "extremely frustrating," and that he sees "Undisputed" being a one-off with the label. "It's like, what the f*ck, man?" says DMX. "Do what you say you're gonna do -- do me like you would do any other artist. Like, d*mn, stick to the f*ckin' script, you know? Mean what you say. You don't gotta lie to me." (Billboard)
As he continues to pile up new music, the rapper recently discussed his intent to go for some crooner collaborations.
DMX has collaborated with an impressive list of female singers throughout his career including Mary J. Blige, Monica, Faith Evans and the late Aaliyah, the latter whom he crafted the track "Back in One Piece" with and starred alongside in the movie Romeo Must Die (2000). If X has it his way, he'll be collaborating with a few more famous lady crooners soon, and at the top of his list are two very unlikely choices. "Sade and Adele," X recently told XXLMag.com. When asked why, the Dog gave off-the-cuff responses. "I love chubby girls," he said in reference to the ultra-talented Adele, who won six Grammys, including Album of the Year, in February. As for Sade: "I love her," he simply said. (XXL Mag)
Producer Dame Grease gave his take on X's comeback around mid-March.
"It's not even DMX 'coming back,'" Grease said in an interview. "I don't even want to say DMX is coming back. We could check a chart right now, and the sh*t is still waving. X ain't put out an album in a couple years. Everybody's aware of all the situations. He's got the controversy, the arrest, all the different things and all that. But as far as an artist, a rapper, a human being, there's nobody that's touching him. Like I always said, I came in the game with a lot of people that's great but he's a person to look up to from my standpoint." (Label Pushers)
