Earlier this month, Flex teased the existence of unearthed DMX songs, while urging Swizz, the late rapper’s frequent collaborator, to bless hip-hop fans with said material.
“I’m going to put pressure on [Swizz Beatz] today,” Flex said during his show on Sept. 1. “I heard that there are several unreleased, never coming out DMX songs. Swizz Beatz doesn’t know that I know because someone ratted on you, Swizz.”
He went on to challenge the superproducer to send him a record from X’s vault. “Swizz Beatz, I know you’re in Arabia, I understand you’re on the private jet and I know what’s happening… New York City, just so you know, Swizz Beatz has the studio on the jet.”
Flex added, “Swizz Beatz, I challenge you in six days to get me one of those DMX songs. That’s what New York City wants, that’s what Yonkers wants.”
A week later, Swizz came through, as Flex premiered a DMX record on Thursday night. The track samples Big Daddy Kane’s 1988 hit “Ain’t No Half-Steppin’” and features production from Marley Marl.
“Unreleased, we don’t know when it’s coming out,” Flex said during the song, which featured Swizz saying on the track: “When I say DMX, y’all say, ‘The great.’”
