DMX Celebrates Birthday At Children's Center

DMX hits record stores tomorrow with his new album, "And Then There Was X," the follow-up to Flesh Of My Flesh - Blood Of My Blood, one of two albums the rapper released in 1998 (the other was his debut, It's Dark & Hell Is Hot).

Over the weekend, DMX got into the spirit of the holiday season by celebrating his birthday with those at the Children's Village foster center in Dobbs Ferry, New York. The center is a residential treatment facility where the rapper (born Earl Simmons) lived from 1983-1985.

Meanwhile, the first single from "And Then There Was X" is the track "What's My Name," produced by Self and Irv Gotti, and the cut is already tearing up urban radio.

Others contributing beats to DMX's new LP include X's fellow Ruff Ryder Swizz Beatz, Dame Grease, and P. Killer Trackz. Dru Hill's Nokio also produced a song called "What These B*****s Want," which also features vocals from Sisqo.
