DMX gave a 16 year old Swizz Beatz his first big break when he bought a beat from him, and they've been working together ever since.
So it seems right for Swizz to behind X's comeback album, which has yet to be given a date or title.
It does have some potential music, as Swizz and X are seen here cooking something up in the lab:
Beatz has said X's new album will feature Dr. Dre and Kanye West.
It would the Ruff Ryder's first since 2012's Undisputed, since X rejects the 2015 album Redemption of The Beast as stolen music.
Is DMX poised for a comeback?
