Does DMX really need a comeback album? If you're over the age of 20, and have heard of this music we call "hip-hop," you'd likely say, "no." But the Ruff Ryder is coming back on the scene this fall with a tour and a new album Undisputed. He collaborated with Swizz Beats and Dame Grease on the LP and you can already buy the first single off the album "I Don't Dance," featuring Machine Gun Kellyon iTunes.
The tour schedule was announced, and whaddya know? We're in the path of the Divine Master of the Unknown's rap rampage through middle America along with two other Florida towns. So far, he's not even hitting up Los Angeles or New York City. But dates are being added, it seems, and our small victory may end up being just one city in thirty. We'll take a one night stand with DMX. No complaints here.
The man just spent time on a VH-1 show Couples Threrapy. He's cleaned up. Just gotta say, we don't want any stabbings or roughin' up of puppies, but seriously, we'd prefer no preaching or talk therapy either. What follows are the dates for the first leg of his Undisputed: Weigh In tour.
