On the streets of the Tri-state, the reputation of the Dean brothers is as well known as it is respected. Dee and Wah, founders of the iconic Ruff Ryders record label that launched the career of DMX and famously rescued The LOX from Puff’s shiny suit campaign, are both shrewd businessmen, but you do not want to test their gangster. In this latest episode of the Combat Jack Show, Joaquin “Waah” Dean sits down with Jack and Premium Pete to recount his extensive history in both the streets and the industry.
You think you know the scope of the Ruff Ryders history? You heard all the stories about DMX, Eve, “The L.O.X.” Swizz Beats and the Def Jam takeover? Co-founder Joaquin “Waah” Dean takes the history back to the actual ground zero of Hip Hop with Kool Herc, to the legendary DMX vs Jay Z battle, to taking over the history and more. No shiny suits will be worn during the listening of this episode. Nothing but #BlockWork here b.
