DMX kicks off tour dates

DMX KICKS OFF “UNDISPUTED: WEIGH IN” TOUR ON JUNE 1ST

PROMO TOUR WILL HIT 30 CITIES IN SUPPORT OF 7TH STUDIO ALBUM ‘UNDISPUTED’ RELEASING THIS FALL

Ruff Ryder legend and world-renowned performer DMX will hit the road this summer to support his upcoming comeback album Undisputed, releasing this fall on Seven Arts/Bloodline Records. The first leg of the tour will kick off June 1st in Cincinnati, OH with additional tour legs to be announced soon. The promo tour will mark X’s return to most markets after several years and the dog is anxious to get back into these regions and in front of his fans.

“It’s been a long time since I’ve had the chance to go out and touch the fans. They’ve consistently supported through the ups and downs,” exclaims DMX. “I’m anxious to get back in front of them and return the favor, keeping the focus on incredible music and memorable live shows.”

“We are excited to get back on the road with the “Undisputed: Weigh In” promo tour this summer,” adds DMX manager Jason Fowler. “With X getting the chance to be in front of his fans day in and day out, this project has been a long time coming and the DOG is definitely back. We’re looking at 30-40 cities across the US on the promo run with a full US tour planned in the fall to coincide with the Undisputed album release.”

The first release from the Undisputed album is the club-ready, adrenaline-fueled “I Don’t Dance,” produced by JR Rotem and featuring Cleveland spit-fire rapper and longtime DMX admirer MGK. “I Don’t Dance” will be serviced to radio in the coming weeks and a music video directed by John Colombo will soon follow. DMX is working closely with longtime friends and collaborators Swizz Beats and Dame Grease on the full-length album.

DMX, a Grammy Awards nominee and American Music Awards winner, recently wrapped VH-1 reality show Couples Therapy. His success with past albums like …And Then There Was X (which featured the top-ten hit single “Party Up” and was certified platinum six times) made him the only musical artist in history to release five consecutive albums (his entire album catalog at the time) that debuted at number one on the Billboard charts.

West Coast Heavyweights Team With Mark Morrison On “Innocent Man” Remix Dedicated To DMX

California meets the UK, as Meech Wells teams with Mark Morrison for the remix of Innocent Man!

Multi-platinum selling artist Mark Morrison, Southern California’s newest talent Eastwood and legendary hookmaster Mr. Kane have collaborated on the remix to Morrison’s latest single “Innocent Man”, which also features DMX, and is a dedication to the incarcerated rap star.

The Meech Wells produced mid-tempo track, co-produced by Soul Mechanix, is being labelled as the “New West Remix”, and comes just weeks after DMX was sentenced to 90 days in jail (Jan. 30) for convictions on theft, drug-possession and animal-cruelty charges.

The track previously released in the UK only, and originally featuring just DMX has received a vocal addition of Mr. Kane, formerly known as Kokane, and a rap by Eastwood. Co-ordinated by super-producer Meech Wells, son of Motown legend Mary Wells, and famed for being Snoop Dogg’s producer of choice during the late ’90’s producing numerous tracks on albums such as “No Limit Top Dogg” and “Tha Last Meal”.

Last year, Grammy Award-winner Swizz Beatz also remixed “Innocent Man”, for the second single from his artist Cassidy’s latest album, entitled B.A.R.S., released by Full Surface/J Records.

Already impacting radio world-wide, the inspirational West Coast remix is a leak in anticipation of the release of Morrison’s new album, due later this year. “Innocent Man” featuring DMX, which is out now, is the first official single from the album, and is Morrison’s first US single in 10 years. His debut “Return of the Mack” became a massive hit in the US reaching #2 on the Billboard charts and #1 across Europe.

Various Artists – Cradle 2 The Grave OST

DMXby Low Key

Throughout the years we have learned one thing about Hip-Hop and Hollywood; they do not mix. Hip Hop inspired films are rarely depicted accurately and their accompanying soundtracks are just as bad. Continuing on this trend is the new Dmx soundtrack for his new action flop of 2003, “Cradle 2 The Grave”.

DMX – And Then There Was X review

DMXby Hugo Lunny

DMX deserves some credit for working his ass off and actually bothering to put out a lot of material. But it isn’t always good that he puts so much out, as it isn’t always that great. Since the beginning of last year, he’s dropped three LP’s (including this one), and they’ve been alright. Nothing really exceptional, but he’s been improving. Tracks like ‘Slippin’ aren’t amazing, but they do show a deeper side of DMX.

DMX – Grand Champ review

DMXby Low Key

Some artists change for the better and progress through the years while others stay mired in the same repetitive pattern for their entire career. Dmx is an artist that fits into the second category, an artist with all the talent in the world, but one that has never grown or progressed over time. When X dropped his classic debut album “It’s Dark And Hell It Hot”, he proved to the entire industry why he was indeed one of the best up and coming artists in the game. However, from their on out, X has never really changed, and instead of growing with each album he has moved backwards, releasing sub par albums that unfortunately have gotten worse each time. This pattern once again continues on X’s latest and final LP “Grand Champ”, where we get an album full of the same tired old Dmx clichés.

Belly OST review

DMXby Hugo Lunny

Belly. This film sounds dope, all I know though is it stars Nas & DMX with T-Boz and Meth fitting in somewhere along the line plus a not very well known man, I think his name is…. Hype Williams?

Various Artists – Ruff Ryders Vol. 1 review

DMXby J-Ro

The Ruff Ryders crew, DMX, Drag-On, Eve, The Lox, and Ja Rule. May be the best crew in hip hop today! Just playing. These guys are the definition of wack. DMX has been dropping info about this joint and have some of the crew appear on his last album ‘Flesh Of My Flesh, Blood Of My Blood.’ Well they finally got to the studio and produced the compilation. The CD features production mostly by producer extraordinaire Swizz Beats.
