The video’s concept, overseen by Ruff Ryders co-founder and CEO Joaquin “Waah” Dean, pays homage to the collective street spirit the Ruff Ryders pioneered in the late 1990s.
The video was shot in different locations, with DMX and Swizz on set in Arizona due to ‘X’s current travel restrictions, and the rest of the crew filmed in New York City.
Ruff Ryders, a record label and management company created by Waah, his brother Dee and their sister Chivon, evolved over the years from a successful artist breeding ground to a fully-fledged movement that includes national bike chapters plus an ultimate fighting division called “Built 4 War”.
A new Ruff Ryders album is set to drop in 2010, with individual artist projects also slated for release in the coming year.
There’s another side to the Sara Stokes Stab Story…
The former MTV reality star accused of putting a knife through her husband’s arm earlier this month claims the whole thing is a misunderstanding – the dude stabbed himself! TMZ spoke with the manager for former “Making the Band 2 star Sara Stokes, who told us a completely different story than the one we heard from law enforcement. Here’s the breakdown:
Stokes’ Version: The incident started by the pool, when Sara innocently tripped and hit her face. Her husband tried to get something to clean her off and accidentally cut his arms on knives in the kitchen sink.
Law Enforcement Version: It started when Sara stormed out of her house after a screaming match with her husband, she fell over and blamed him for tripping her grabbed a knife and stabbed the crap out of his arm while their 3 children watched the whole thing.
Little bit of a difference there, huh? But there’s more Stokes claims the reason she accused her husband of tripping her was because she “suffered a concussion when she fell and was confused.” Stokes’ rep tells us the couple is “back together, ” “happy” and looking forward to the “truth coming out in court.”
Domestic disputes always end like this. All that ‘back together’ and ‘we are so happy now’ talk is for the f***ing birds!!
