The Ruff Ryders are back in the building, and they’re planning a new project due out this October.
Although DMX may have only earned his freedom from jail this past July, that hasn’t stopped the Ruff Ryders team from staying on the music grind. Now, the Yonkers-based rap label is planning to release its latest project this fall with a familiar face at the helm.
According to a recent press release, Ruff Ryders will drop its latest compliation project this October 18. The as-of-yet untitled mixtape will feature the Ruff Ryders’ latest member Mook fronting the project’s first single “You Know,” an update of DMX’s 1998 hit “Ruff Ryders’ Anthem.”
Mook first gained notoriety on the rap battle circuit as Murda Mook, famously battling Fight Klub champion and one-time Disturbing Tha Peace signee Serius Jones. He signed to Ruff Ryders’ independent extension Ruff Ryders Indy back in 2009.
The video for “You Know” can be seen below.
