(AllHipHop News) The cover art and tracklist for a supposed new DMX album began to circulate on the internet this week, but Ruff Ryders fans should not get excited just yet. The Dark Man's producing partner Swizz Beatz took to Instagram to make it clear the reported Redemption Of The Beast album is not an official DMX project.
I see a lot of people hitting me about this album!!! I can tell you 100% this is not the album X and I are working on!!!! (I feel like Timbo with the Aaliyah movie rite now) SMH !!!!!! #DontdisrespecttheDog We Got Fire coming
When the DOG come back you will know 100% !!!!!! Stop the B.S fake albums!!!!!!!! Fyi We Cooking Fire
I see a lot of rapper but I know only 1 X!!!!!!!#nofakealbums We Got Fire⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️⚡️ #brothers4Life!!!!!!!!!! @DMX
DMX backed up Swizz's statements on his own IG page.
This is the second time in as many weeks that X has been the victim of a fraud news story about him. The "satirical" website Infossip recently posted a fake article claiming the New York rapper was arrested for dog fighting.
