Rapper/Actor DMX recently announced that his next CD release will not be on Def Jam Records as previously thought. Instead, DMX has signed a new deal with his old record company Sony, who plans to release at least the next 3 DMX albums.
When D was asked why he made the sudden change, he said "I can't work under him (speaking of former best friend Jay-Z) anymore. I have nothing against the label itself, I just can't work under him." DMX didn't leave alone. He took with him the awesome beat makers Swizz Beatz as well as his Ruff Ryders entourage.
Could this be the start of a feud between the former friends? Could this be a ploy to pull Jay-Z back out of retirement? Time will only tell.
As part of the deal, Sony got DMX's already finished album entitled "Here We Go Again", but had to almost entirely reproduce it track for track. It has even been renamed "Year of the Dog Again".
DMX's former official site http://www.defjam.com/dmx/ has been removed, as has any other mention of the artist from the site. The new site is up and running, http://www.dmx-official.com.
DMX's "Year of the Dog Again" was due out last June under the old title, but is now coming this August under the new title. Stay tuned for more on this story!
