3. Ruff Ryders f/ Drag-On & Juvenile "Down Bottom" (1999)
Album: Ryde or Die Vol. 1
Label: Ruff Ryders, Interscope
Producer: Swizz Beatz
After a few guest spots on early DMX albums, Ruff Ryder Drag-On got his first major showcase on the Ryde or Die Vol. 1 compilation single "Down Bottom." Drag-On vaults out the gate with fierce double time raps almost entirely comprised of different ways he plans on shooting enemies. Juvenile slows things down in verse two, where he counters Drag-On's assault with a dash of melody and then scores the biggest, weirdest laugh on the record when he threatens to "Ruff Ryde yo ass then Cash in for Money."
