The Up’s And Down’s Of Ruff Ryders

While the Ruff Ryders aren’t exactly breaking down the doors of rap anymore, but the group’s legacy is still as prevalent in the progress of hip hop as ever. The hardcore rap group consisted of members DMX, Swizz Beats, The Lox, Eve, Drag-On, and Jin, and they definitely took over when they walked in a building. While it seems to be mostly Swizz and DMX repping for the group to this day, we still hold a special place in our hearts for the Ruff Ryders.
