All aboard the Nostalgia Express: DMX, Eve, Swizz Beats and likely many more are all set to perform a Ruff Ryder’s 20 year reunion show next month at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
DMX let the world know the great news with an Instagram post just a few days ago. The “Get it On the Floor” rapper uploaded a poster himself, Jadakiss, Eve, Sheek Louch and Drag-On wearing Ruff Ryder jerseys with their names on the back them. DMX also used the post to reveal the date the concert, writing, “Brooklyn !! Barclays April 21st will be a night to remember !!! #letsgetiton” in the caption.
From the looks the promotional poster, it seems we could be getting a full-fledged Ruff Ryder reunion tour in the same vein as Diddy’s Bad Boy Reunion tour last year. It hasn’t exactly been confirmd, but the poster in DMX’s Instagram post does say “Ruff Ryders Reunion Tour.”
This news is just another entry into what’s been an extremely eventful week for fans “true hip-hop.” Just days ago, Swizz Beatz and Just Blaze engaged in a memorable beat battle. During the contest, Swizzy unveiled a ridiculous unreleased song featuring Jay Z, DMX, Nas and Jadakiss. You can read more about that gem here. Back in January, DMX and Swizz Beatz also dropped some new fire. You can listen to that song, titled “Bane is Back,” here.
