Since news of DMX's Redemption of the Beast album was a hoax it was assumed that the 16 songs on the track list were phony too. At the Dark Man's expense, fans may still be able to give those tracks a listen. His publicist Domenick Nati has released a statement revealing that the songs on the track list were stolen and may be released whether on X's next album or not.
"I spoke to DMX today and he was unaware of the upcoming announcement of the Redemption Of The Beast album," Nati said in his statement. "When I read him the projected track list of songs to be released X said, 'that's all stolen music'. DMX and myself are highly disappointed that trust was broken and that these songs may be released and sold without X's knowledge or consent. DMX and Swizz Beatz are working on an album together and fans should look to their official social media accounts for accurate information."
After the fake album art and track list started floating around, Swizz Beatz quickly took to his Instagram to blast the preposterous release, saying that that was not the album that he and DMX had been working on.
