DMX Turns Down Rick Ross; Talks New Album

Posted By on July 20, 2011

     As you know by now, DMX is a free man now and the former Def Jam artist is now speaking out about why he would turn down Rick Ross after rumors that he was offered a deal at the Maybach Music Group. Despite not giving many details, DMX did say that he has an album in the works anyway.

DMX was released from Yuma Prison in Yuma, Arizona at about 5:30 a.m. PT on Tuesday (July 19) and the dog made it clear to XXL that he's an unsigned "free agent" who can't wait to release his next album…It just won't be on Rick Ross's Maybach Music Group. "Nah, probably not," the Yonkers native told XXL exclusively live on location in Arizona, in between being disappointed by a Dillard's department store's clothing collection that morning and hitting the studio late that night. DMX wouldn't delve into why he was dismissing the alleged offer of signing to the Boss's MMG imprint, but promised that his next album – no release date as of press time – will return realness and rawness to hip-hop.
