    Who was a fan of the Ruff Ryders back in the day? We all remember DMX, The Lox, Swizz Beatz and those Ruff Ryders compilations.

      Well before getting started I’ve listened to Wayne since the Hot Boys dropped Get It How U Live album along with B.G, Juvenile and Turk. So I’ve followed him a long time so I’m not going to bore you anymore and get straight to the review. The first Carter album made me become more of a Wayne fan. The Carter 2 felt like a continuation of the first one as it was a dope album also. The Carter 3 wasn’t as nice as the first two, but it still was a good album though.   1. Intro- He just spitting a few bars, nice intro where he just spitting…
