DMX has wasted no time re-establishing his presence in music, following his recent release from prison, as the veteran rapper has announced plans for a new U.S. tour marking the 20th anniversary of his 1998 debut album, It’s Dark & Hell Is Hot.
Kicking off on March 8, the trek will find X trekking across the country for a total of 32 dates. The It’s Dark & Hell Is Hot 20th-anniversary tour will make its way to such major cities as Houston, New York, Philadelphia, Atlanta, New Orleans and more before eventually winding down on May 7 in Pittsburgh.
Taking to Instagram to announce the news, X acknowledged his fans unwavering support but also noted that loyalty ultimately comes at a cost.
