Super-producer Swizz Beatz has reached out to his pal DMX and offered to help the embattled rapper get his career back on track after he walked free from prison on Tuesday.
DMX, real name Earl Simmons, was released from an Arizona correctional facility after serving seven months for a probation violation and he revealed he was planning to hit the studio after reuniting with his family.
And the hip-hop star's longtime collaborator and Ruff Ryders crewmember Beatz insists he's ready and waiting for DMX to call so they can get back to work.
Beatz tells AllHipHop.com, "I'll always work with DMX; that's my brother no matter what. X was a winner already. Now it's just a matter of getting that title back. Bottom line is, he's a winner. It's just on when he wants to win again; it's all up to him.
DMX's drug problems have hampered his music career in recent years and he has not released a new album since 2006's Year of the Dog... Again.
