“I just feel like the whole Ruff Ryders thing wasn’t given its proper props...We was very unique at the time. Nobody really brought in a culture within another culture—the bike culture—extreme sports mixed with the street...People forget we were breaking all kinds of records, and I think we was going so strong and so powerful that the industry couldn’t deal with it no more.” - Swizz Beatz, on the Ruff Ryders music label.
