A verse from DMX is being heard by fans for the first time in a new song from Connecticut rapper Chris Webby. The posthumous collaboration, “We Up,” was released on streaming services today alongside an official music video.

DMX, whose real name was Earl Simmons, passed away in April. According to Webby, Simmons’ contribution to the single marked the late rapper’s “last ever recorded feature verse” before his untimely passing.

“I woke up and broke up what I had to bring,” Simmons raps on the track. “Don’t take an earthquake to get this ground to shake.”

“Thank you to everyone who helped make this video,” Webby wrote on social media. “I wouldn’t have had it any other way. RIP to a legend and one of my (and so many others’) biggest inspirations as an emcee.”

In a separate post, Webby referred to “We Up” as “one of the most important contributions [he’ll] have ever made” to hip-hop culture.

Listen to “We Up” on streaming services now and watch the official music video above.
