Producer Swizz Beatz recently talked about re-sparking the Ruff Ryders movement and spoke on what fans could expect from DMX and Eve's comeback projects.
In addition to speaking on Ruff Ryders, Swizzy also said he was not rushing for a solo project follow-up to 2007's One Man Band Man.
"I'm about to drop this joint that was supposed to be DMX and Jadakiss, but it's gonna be DMX and Eve," Swizz said in an interview. "I want people to hear Eve in that hard element again. X is on his A-game. They're in trouble. Just the lineup of music I have already done, ignorant! X is gonna come back so crazy. They are both on the way...I paused up on my album sh*t...I'm on a different level of expressing myself. I'd rather express musically than lyrically. But any minute, I can go in the studio and jump on some sh*t I made for somebody else and not wanna give it to them." (MTV)
Swizzy recently spoke on hitting the studio alongside E-v-e.
"Wait until y'all hear the finished product of [DMX]," Swizz said in an interview. "We've taken it way to the next level and the whole double R movement from Eve to X, those are my main first priorities right now and I mean the music is coming out crazy...It's time for that, I told X like, 'You not gonna finish the legacy? Like, what we doing? I remember when people couldn't on stage after you. Like, what are we doing?' It's a whole different team around him, like, X, he needs the right team around him and right now he's got the right team around him. The team around him when we was doing it real major, that team is around him again. So it's easier for me to communicate with him. find him, because all these 'Yes' people that were around him, they fans. You can't have no fans around him, you gotta have family around."

The Lox's Jadakiss also confirmed the Ruff Ryders reunion would be in full effect for 2009.
"We got the Ruff Ryder, D-Block remix out," Kiss explained as he and Swizz Beatz pulled out trademark Ruff Ryder bandannas. "We got [DMX] on there. X on there, Eve, Drag On, Styles P, Sheek Louch, we bringing it back. We bringing it back to that element baby! ... And yeah, yeah, the Big Bosses tour, me and my big homie Cam'ron coming to a venue near you real soon...Catalog is crazy right now. We got Lox album coming, Ruff Ryder compilation, new Sheek album, new Swizz album, new Kiss album. We gettin' it poppin' baby! ("106 & Park")
Kiss previously spoke with radio personality Angie Martinez about re-linking with X.
"Yeah the dog, welcome home baby," Kiss said. "The dog is real good, he's close by, he's real close. The dog is around baby, he's doing real good. He's just chilling with family right now, you know what I mean? You'll see him in a minute. [The remix] is good. I mean, his part [on the song] is done. Ladies and gentleman, you know what I do. I make magic, look forward to it, it's coming. Real close." (Hot 97)
