In April 2020, the hip-hop community mourned the passing of Ruff Ryders boss DMX, who before he died was working to finish his Exodus album. Fortunatel­y, his close friend and producer Swizz Beatz carried the project over the finish line. Released a month following the rapper’s death, Exodus features the long-awaited collaborat­ion between X, JAY-Z and Nas: “Bath Salts.” The braggadoci­ous track was a victory lap for the three New York MCs, who anchored East Coast rap in the late 1990s and early 2000s.
