Ruff Ryders leader DMX is looking primed for a major comeback. Weeks after getting released from jail, Dark Man X is back on his music-making grind.

Over the past few hours, producer Swizz Beatz has shared shots of X clocking in ample studio time.

A few days ago, X linked up with Oscar winner Forest Whitaker.

DMX is currently gearing up for a nationwide tour.

In late January, X finally tasted freedom after serving a one-year prison sentence for tax evasion.

As we reported … DMX is planning on dropping a new album and tackling some new movie projects, including a possible biopic! With his prison sentence complete, X must now start forking over $2.3 million in restitution to Uncle Sam … and he also has to start outpatient programs for substance abuse and mental health. DMX’s original release date was supposed to be on Sunday, but it’s federal policy to release inmates early if their release date falls on a weekend. (TMZ)
