NEW YORK (Billboard) - After being released from his Sony Music deal earlier this year, rapper DMX has signed a deal with the music division of Canadian online gaming company Bodog Entertainment.

The rapper plans to release his next two albums, "Walk With Me Now" and "You'll Fly With Me Later" in 2008. His lone album for Sony after leaving Def Jam, "Year of the Dog ... Again" was released in 2006 and has sold 329,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

Bodog Music recently snagged international distribution rights for the Wu-Tang Clan's comeback album, "8 Diagrams."
