DMX & Styles P Ride Rough On A New Song That Takes No Prisoners (Audio)

Yesterday (June 4), DMX was one of the headlining acts at the 9th annual Roots Picnic in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Sharing the bill with fellow Ruff Ryders member Swizz Beatz (who appeared on stage during X’s set), the Yonkers, New Yorker performed hits from the last 18 years of his illustrious career.

As he begins work on his eighth studio album, DMX aims to regain some of the focus that made him such an igniting star in the late 1990s and early 2000s. As Swizzy has said Dr. Dre and Kanye West are among those reported to help Dark Man X’s perceived comeback LP, his latest music keeps things in the core. X calls upon another onetime Ruff Ryder, The LOX’s Styles P for “Still Scratching.” Not unlike the expanded DJ Clue version of “Ruff Ryders Anthem” or the fiery “We Don’t Give A Fuck,” this record features two MCs amped all the way up.

X and P use their dog and ghost alter-egos to mob the track with some menacing music.

DMX last released Undisputed in 2012.
