DMX Says The Ruff Ryders Are Reuniting
Ruff Ryders Back? DMX says that his old running mates from Ruff Ryders Records are reuniting and a tour is already in the works, reports TMZ.
According to Dark Man X, the tour will be kicking off in a few months and Drag-On, Murda Mook and Swizz Beatz are already on board. However, the LOX and Eve aren’t yet in the mix, but according to X it’s just a matter of time before they join in.
“We are all family and we’re going to come back stronger than when we left … It’s going to take the nation by storm,” said DMX.
During the late 90’s and early 2000’s Ruff Ryders was one of Hip-Hop’s most revered labels. The Yonkers, NY based entity was founded by Darrin”Dee” Dean and Joaquin “Waah” Dean and boasted a roster that included DMX, the LOX (Jadakiss, Styles P, Sheek Louch)—after the group infamously departed from Bad Boy Records—and Philly repping female rapper Eve. Plenty of the label’s hit instrumentals were also provided by Swizz Beatz, who is Dee and Wah’s nephew.
