DMX, Jay-Z, & Nas Light Up The Mic On “Bath Salts” From “Exodus”

Three New York success stories spinning bars from one verse to the next.

Over a signature Swizz Beatz production we find Nas and Jay-Z uniting once again, this time alongside DMX. It wasn’t too long ago when Jay and Nasir Jones surprised the world when they linked up on DJ Khaled’s “Sorry Not Sorry” from his chart-topping Khaled Khaled album, but this time, the sound is a tad different. With a trio of New York heavyweight emcees going bar for bar on “Bath Salts” from DMX’s posthumous Exodus, Hip Hop fans are globally celebrating X’s legacy and lyricism.

“This is a great follow-up, it’s [back-to-back] New York superhero moments,” Swizz said of the track in a recent interview with GQ. “You have three superheroes from New York that have endless accolades, broke endless records and here they come—it’s a Clash of the Titans. It’s very urgent and lyrical and everybody came with a different style [on their verses.]”
