Ruff Ryders leader DMX is back like the Dark Knight‘s evil nemesis. The hip-hop veteran has cemented a big return to music-making with his new “Bane Is Back.”

After recently teasing fans about a comeback, X has decided to let his new Swizz Beatz-produced track out to the masses.

As expected, DMX links up with his long time friend and collaborator Swizz Beatz for his latest single. Both the sirens in the production and the energy in DMX’s voice make it clear that he’s determined to grab everyone’s attention once again. Could this mean that we might finally receive a new album from DMX this year? It’s too early to tell, but one can hope. (Pigeons & Planes)
