Cheeky Lanez went on to ask X to rap a line from his new album, but he wasn't giving anything away and declined.
DMX hasn't released an album since 2015 with Redemption of the Beast but last year he signed a new deal with Def Jam and reconnected with Swizz Beatz.
Swizz confirmed the signing during an interview with The Breakfast Club, saying: "Just re-signed so it's gonna be a good year for him, God willing. I just want it to happen so he can go to where he been supposed to have went."

In January 2019, he was released from prison after spending nearly a year behind bars for tax fraud. He pleaded guilty in 2017 to tax evasion charges where he was accused of a 'multi-year scheme' that allowed him to avoid paying $1.7 million (£1.3 million) in taxes.
According to Vulture, he stayed off authorities' radar for years because he paid for everything in cash, he got other people to pay for things with his money and he even had a bank account that wasn't in his name.
"I wasn't following the rules," he said in court.
