*With Fat Joe
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.
