DMX and the Ruff Ryders Reuniting for 20th Anniversary Tour
This should be one for the ages. The Ruff Ryders are officially reuniting for a 20th anniversary show.
DMX, Swizz Beats, Eve, Drag-On and The Lox will all be present for the reunion show which kicks off on April 21 at Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. The flyer suggests that this is just the first show in a full tour, though no additional dates have been announced as of yet.
The Ruff Ryders' influence on 90s hip-hop culture and music was incredibly significant, launching the solo careers of Swizz, DMX and Eve who have all since gone on to continue to influence culture in their own ways-- through continued production, movies and music.
Additionally, DMX recently announced his comeback with the Swizz Beats produced "Bane is Back." Swizz has, of course, remained at the forefront of music culture, and participated in a beat battle with Just Blaze this past weekend.
Hopefully, this reunion will lead to a full tour.
