DMX Planning Gospel Album & Dual CD Release

According to a report from MTV, DMX is planning to release two albums on the same day, one of which will be a gospel rap album. The two albums, jointly called Walk With Me Now and You’ll Fly With Me Later, will consist of one straight-forward rap album (the Walk With Me Now portion) and one spiritual-themed album (the You’ll Fly With Me Now portion). The full title will appear on both albums, with the appropriate portion of the title highlighted on each.

When MTV spoke to X, he revealed that the lyrics on You’ll Fly With Me will be “without cursing — how ’bout that one? No songs about b—-es, no songs about robbing, just straight ‘Give God the glory.’ ” The project will feature production from frequent collaborators like Swizz Beatz, PK and Dame Grease.

This will be the Yonkers MC’s first album since signing with independent Bodog Music (as XXLMAG.com previously reported), and his first since leaving Columbia Records, where he released 2006′s The Year of The Dog…Again. “I had five #1-debuting records in a row,” X told MTV of his brief stint with Columbia. “[Year of the Dog, Again] was supposed to be number six. [Sony] released another record the same day they released mine, the Now [That's What I Call Music!] CD. They let the sh– beat me by 1,000. And they didn’t tell me until after the week was up.”

    x has fallen off i will not Cop it.

      Really, if your eyes were open you could tell X was a man that struggled with the battle of good and evil by some of the prayers and songs that he put out. See, a lot of people want to criticize him for doing this because it’s not what they want to hear. They want the dark mean muggin X. Wide is the path to destruction and narrow is the gate to righteousness. X, like everyone else has a superior to answer to and he’s aware that there are rewards and consequenses for either choice. This stuff doesn’t happen overnight, he’s being dealt with right now. The best way he knows how to let it out is through his music. No lie, I liked X back in the days but my life has changed so I don’t dig that kind of music anymore, period. I think he’s dealing with a change as well and once he fully commits he’ll be able to use that talent that he has for the glory of almighty.

    So…I’m not expecting anything much from X, this nigga let me down 3 albums ago and I keep copin’ them hoping if might turn-around and gimme that heat like he once had in ’98-’01

  • Cop Deez

    I fucks wit X. The drugs fucked him up, but the real X really had some shit to him, somethin a Pastor would kill for. With that said, I dont know if a Gospel album is the right thing to do at this point in his life.

  • Fireforreal

    I was a big fan but he let me down for 3 albums in a row. Now he’s gonna have a rap album with gospel rap and one with cursing,guns,bitches and all that in a way it’s gonna contridict themselves. And after a year since that last wack album came out he’s complaing about 1000 sales more for the NOW cd. You had 5 straight #1 huh ? you should have did more shows and things to promote yourself your not a new artist X stop bitchin and get back on your 98,99,2000 shit

    dmx is a real dude.
    i can’t wait for the gospel album.
    all his best songs are about g-d and spiritual struggles.
    i like how he censored out slippin it’s one of my favorite rap songs ever.
    with every rapper overdoing the cursing and invincible thug / never have any problems / make mistakes shit’s good to hear something pure about something real.
