Aside from the failed George Zimmerman boxing match fiasco, DMX has stayed relatively quiet. However, the Ruff Ryders artist is hitting the road again for a brief tour.

The 'Get At Me Dog' rapper is embarking on a seven-city tour in March. The trek kicks off March 6 in Abilene, Texas and wraps up March 12 in Dallas. X also has some one-off dates in Charlotte, N.C., on Feb. 28 and in New Orleans on March 13.

"We are happy to announce that DMX is continuing to do what he does best… music,” said X’s publicist Domenick Nati in a press release via "The team is very excited about this tour and it is the first of many that we have planned for 2014."

In addition to his tour, DMX is also scheduled to perform at the 2014 Free Press Summer Fest in Houston. The two-day event starts on May 31 through June 1. Fellow rappers Lauryn Hill, Wu-Tang Clan and Childish Gambino are on the bill.
