Listen: DMX reunites with Swizz Beatz for 'Bane iz Back'

What?! X is gonna give it to you again! Arf!

This new DMX single has us flashing back to his Ruff Ryders prime!

The track, "Bane iz Back" (or "Bain iz Back" if you're nasty according to the cover art's possible typo) reunites X with the man responsible for his late-'90s breakout jams Swizz Beatz. Over blaring horns, X sounds as focused and hungry as his finest work. It's a welcome return to form that we'd go as far as to say is even better than The Dark Knight Rises.

There have been rumors for months about a new DMX album. While this new single doesn't come with a full-length's release date, X and Swizz were put on this Earth to make music together, so their reunion means a complete project can't be far behind. X gon' give it to us!
