DMX "Exodus" (Album Stream)

Exodus is the first posthumous studio album from DMX, who passed away on April 9th of this year. Released through Def Jam Records, it is also X's first studio album since his 2012 effort, Undisputed. DMX boasted in his Drink Champs interview that there would be several impressive features and he wasn't lying as the album has features from The LOX, Jay-Z, Nas, Alicia Keys, Bono, Westside Gunn, Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, Snoop Dogg, Usher and more. "That's My Dog" comes out the gate knockin' hard, even with Swizz's vocals which are completely unforgettable, and there ARE tracks that keep the album movin', but I'd be lying if I didn't say it FEELS rushed. What do you think? It's great to hear DMX, even if it feels bittersweet. Rest in Peace, Dark Man X!
