DMX has continually redesigned the rap genre and dramatically expanded the possibilities for creative expression,” Sony Chairman Steve Barnett told a packed auditorium.

The first album under the three-album Sony/Columbia deal is titled Here We Go Again, which was previously recorded for Def Jam.

Sony bought DMX’s previous contract with Def Jam, but most of the album will be re-produced for his Sony debut. In published reports, the rapper said he could not work with Def Jam president Jay-Z because they were both “too big.”

DMX was recently released from Rikers Island, where he served a 70-day sentence for parole violations.
