Music producer, Swizz Beatz and rapper, French Montana have a new song titled “Been to War” featuring the late DMX.
The track is from the soundtrack to the second season of the Epix series “Godfather of Harlem”, which premiered April 18.
‘Been to War’ is likely the first among many posthumous releases from the rapper to come, as he had rejoined Def Jam Recordings in 2019 and reportedly had finished an album, although few official details have emerged.
“Godfather of Harlem” features Forest Whitaker as legendary ’60s gangster Bumpy Johnson, and the song finds the three rappers narrating his life and the series. Beatz oversees the series’ soundtrack; DMX and Rick Ross appeared with him on a song called “Just in Case” two years ago.
DMX (Dark Man X) began rapping in the early 1990s and released his debut album, “It’s Dark and Hell Is Hot,” in 1998. “…And Then There Was X,” which was released in 1999 was nominated for a Grammy in the best rap album category.
He went on to sell millions of albums with major hits like “Get At Me Dog” in 1998, “Party Up”, in 1999 and “X Gon’ Give It to Ya”, in 2003.
