Ruff Ryders’ founders Joaquin “Waah” and Darin “Dee” Dean initially became lauded figures in the music industry by managing rappers DMX and The Lox, who turned into multi-platinum stars for Def Jam Recordings and Bad Boy Records in the late 1990s. The famed roster includes DMX, The Lox, Jadakiss, Styles P and Sheek Louch, Drag-On, Eve, and Swizz Beatz.
With decades of experience, and as prominent leaders in the hip-hop community, Joaquin and Darin revamped the Ruff Ryders brand through a new venture in 2010 known as Ruff Ryders Indy, a Fontana/Universal affiliated distribution company. Now the tour, along with the NatPro, We R the Streets, and Ruff Ryders to the Rescue program, is giving the brothers an opportunity to revolutionize how hip-hop music and lifestyle is discovered and delivered to communities. Through Ruff Ryders Indy, Joaquin continues to showcase a keen eye for finding the hottest emerging talent, while Darin hones in on artist development.
