Swizz Beatz Working on Ruff Ryders Reunion Album

Swizz Beatz recently confirmed that he is in fact working on a Ruff Ryders reunion album that has been rumored to be in the works for the past couple of months. Speaking to MTV News, Swizzy explained his vision for the project. “I’m in my zone,” he explained to MTV. “I’m bringing the Ruff Ryders back real major in ‘08. It’s gonna be a lot of Ruff Ryders shit in ‘08. Not taking away from D-Block, not taking away from Bloodline. It’s stamping the brand that started all this shit.” The super-producer says he wants the album will have 10 tracks and he revealed that he has already reached out to DJ Premier, Dr. Dre and Dame Grease for beats. Most of the original Ruff Ryders crew are expected to appear, including The Lox, Drag-On and DMX, who Swizz says has already contributed five verses. The Full Surface CEO is also working with X on his upcoming Gospel themed double LP, Walk With Me Now, Fly With Me Later. The first disc, Walk With Me, will be comprised of typical X fare, while the second, Fly With Me Later, will feature the Yonkers MC’s unique brand of spiritual rap. “I’m helping him out with it,” Swizz told MTV. “ just hooked him up with Pharrell for the gospel joint.”
