During an appearance on NORE’s Drink Champs podcast DMX confirms a new album is on the way featuring Snoop Dogg, Lil Wayne, Usher, The Lox, Pop Smoke, Griselda , Bono and more.
“I got Lil Wayne, I got Snoop,” he confirms, unsurprising given their chemistry in the legendary Verzuz dogfight. “I got The LOX. I got Bono — the U2 n***a”, said DMX.
“It’s called ‘Letter To My Son,'” explains DMX. “When I first did it, the only issue was the piano. Then my man, Ryan King Joseph, he play the violin. It was just piano on the song, and I never did a song with one instrument before. It came out crazy, it hits you. And then I heard [Joseph’s] work, and put him on the joint. The Bono joint is ‘Skyscrapers.’ Shit’s crazy. It got a Miami feel to it. I feel like I want to shoot the video here!” He closes the hype session by marveling at Bono’s bridge — “all muthafuckas need to do is listen to it, and we good.”
