DMX, who is currently serving a 70-day jail sentence for driving with a suspended license, has left his longtime recording home of Def Jam and is headed for a new ground.
According to MTV News, once the Yonkers native is released from jail, he is Sony Music bound, where he has reportedly signed a deal.
DMX has cut all ties with Def Jam after hinting earlier this year that Jay-Z's new position at the label has put a strain on their relationship.
The rapper was previously signed with Columbia (which is now part of Sony Music) back in the early '90s, but after recording for the label, his music never saw the light of day.
X has released five #1 albums for Def Jam including his quadruple platinum debut, It's Dark and Hell is Hot, in 1998. The rapper had stated in the past his frustration with Def Jam and was supposedly retiring after his last album, The Grand Champ was released, but it seems he has had a change of heart.
The rapper's new Def Jam album, Here We Go Now, was scheduled for release earlier this year, but has since been put on indefinite hold.
