Last week, DMX’s first posthumous album, “Exodus” was released. This project contained 13 tracks as it was led by the single, “Hood Blues,” feat. Benny The Butcher, Conway The Machine, and Westside Gunn. Additional appearances included Nas, Jay Z, Moneybagg Yo, and Swizz Beatz.
The debut numbers are also now in for Exodus. Last week, it was projected that it would sell close to just 32,000 units and that is the case at this point, according to Chart Data. 14,000 of these were in pure sales and 22.12 million on-demand streams were accumulated. Many were impressed with the content that the late New York rapper had here, along with some production being handled mostly by Swizz.
This also ended up being the first album for DMX since 2012’s “Undisputed.” That project debuted at number 19 on the Billboard 200 and sold 17,000 copies.
At this point, it’s now been almost two months since DMX tragically passed away. He initially suffered a heart attack caused by an apparent drug overdose. He was on life support when transported to the hospital, as his brain function unfortunately did not improve at all.
