Well well well, it would appear we finally have a news story about DMX that doesn't involve law enforcement. The veteran rapper has plans for a comeback in 2012 and has announced a set of tour dates for "Undisputed: Weigh In" to showcase his upcoming new album.

With his upcoming new album "Undisputed" set to drop on June 26th, DMX is bringing his iconic ruff-ryder sound to a venue near you. The Dog Man revealed a total of fifteen stops for his concert series, dubbed "Weigh In," which is tentatively set to begin in June. You can hear an album snippet of "Undisputed" below.

In a release, DMX spoke about his struggles and how the tour is a way to give something back to the fans who have supported him.

"It's been a long time since I've had the chance to go out and touch the fans," DMX said in a press release. "They've consistently supported through the ups and downs. I'm anxious to get back in front of them and return the favor, keeping the focus on incredible music and memorable live shows."

DMX's Weigh In tour is tentatively slated to get off the ground in Cincinnati, OH on June 1st with a set at the Inner Circle. The primarily East Coast-driven tour will make stops in a number of big venues, including a June 9th showcase with another veteran hip-hop artist, Nas, in Detroit on June 9th. His only West Coast stop will come on June 30th, when DMX will make an appearance at Blaisdell Hall in Honolulu, HI on June 30th. The tour is scheduled to wrap up with a final show at the Vinyl Music Hall in Pensacola, FL on July 10th.

While only 15 concert dates have been announced, DMX's manager hinted that the Weigh In tour could be stretched and a number of additional show dates could be added in the not-so-distant future.

"We are excited to get back on the road for his 'Undisputed: Weigh In' promo tour this summer," says Jason Fowler, DMX's manager, about DMX's upcoming tour. "This project has been a long time coming and the DOG is definitely back. In all we think that this promo run will end up being between 30-40 cities across the U.S. and we're planning a full U.S. tour this fall."
