Will DMX release some music

The last record label that DMX was signed to was Seven Arts Entertainment. They released “Redemption of a Beast” without acquiring a legal artist contract, to which DMX and his manager Montana will be taking legal action against. Here is a quote below:

“Seven Arts Entertainment had no right to put out a new album. The only contract DMX had was for Undisputed & that came out two years ago. He don’t have a contract with them to release another album. You can’t just put somebody’s album out without permission. X only had a contract with them for one album & that album already came out a long time ago. If they wanted to come out with another album, they had to come to the table. That’s why we sent a cease & desist letter. Some of the songs are from the Undisputed album & there’s three extra songs that he recorded that were not on the Undisputed album that they just put on that album. That’s what they did. We don’t even know where he got that picture on the cover from. -Montana”
