Ruff Ryders are back. DMX reunites with Swizz Beatz on his new single “Bane Is Back,” inspired by the DC Comics supervillain. Over blaring sirens, Swizz plays hypeman before the “Dark Knight” puts his hoodie on and gets down to business, unleashing some brutal bars.
“Cats now days be spitting that fuck shit / Bird ass ni**as spittin’ that duck shit / I’m from the old school and that there, we don’t fuck with,” growls X.
In between his studio sessions with Swizz, DMX welcomed his 15th child in August. Next up, he is set to perform at the Soulquarius festival in Santa Ana, Calif. on Feb. 18 alongside R. Kelly, Erykah Badu, Ja Rule, Ashanti, and more.
