Various Artists – Ruff Ryders Vol. 1 review

DMXby Hugo Lunny

When I first heard that this LP was in the works, I was, to say the least, not in the slightest bit bothered about it. However, with that being said, it isn’t completely bad.

Out of the Ruff Ryders camp, there is only one group of emcees that I consistently enjoy listening to. That is of course, The LOX. They all have tons of skill. But other than them, the other emcees which I consider to be part of the actual Ruff Ryders (not affiliates), those being; Drag-On, Eve and DMX really hadn’t impressed me on anything that much. DMX has had his moments, but usually he hasn’t come off as someone that I’m too impressed with.
