Having been released from prison in January after serving a year for tax evasion, DMX has been out on the road celebrating the 20th anniversary of his debut album, It's Dark and Hell Is Hot. We caught him in NYC when he played two nights at Irving Plaza in April, and soon after he made a couple of appearances at weekend two of Coachella, where he was a guest on "Ruff Ryder's Anthem" during Murda Beatz‘s set, and led the audience in prayer at Kanye West's Sunday Service. On Saturday (5/4), his tour hit Chicago's House of Blues, where he again celebrated It's Dark and Hell Is Hot. Check out pictures in the gallery above, and watch a few videos below.

Coming up for DMX is a role in the film Chronicle Of A Serial Killer, Hot New Hip Hop reports, where he'll star alongside Brendan Sexton and Tara Reid as the lead detective tracking down serial killer Henry Brolin, played by Sexton. Steve Stanulis is directing the film, which is set to begin filming in June in NYC.
