X said he’s not happy where he’s at (Seven Arts Music) and his ideal label situation would be independent with major distribution.
On his comeback:

After X’s VH1 special aired Swizz tweeted he was going to do everything in his power to help X come out with a great album. Did Swizz do everything he said he would do to help?

X said he hopes to save people’s lives with becoming a deacon. He added, “I’m hoping to save many of people’s lives. Not just young people. God’s strongest warriors, he strongest soldiers are the addicts, are the prostitutes, are the n***** locked up. And then if you weren’t special to God, the devil wouldn’t waste his time f****** with you.”
