When one hears that Ruff Ryders has signed a new artist they usually assume it’s another MC with some street cred. This time around, however, it’s all about a 23 year old woman who goes by the name LT. LT is not a rapper, she’s a pop singer, and Ruff Ryders created a new division just for her, Ruff Pop. LT explained how she ended up a Ruff Ryder, and who she’s been working with in an interview with ReactMag.
Ruff Ryders Records has just signed 23-year-old singer LT to launch its new division, Ruff Pop. LT – born Lynne Timmes, tells The New York Daily News she’s a “straight-up pop artist.” As for the unlikely pairing, she admitted, “My parents were a little worried when they looked at the old Ruff Ryders Web site. It had gunshots – and blood dripping from Eve’s face. But they think everything happens for a reason, and I do, too.” Ruff Ryders co-CEO Joaquin (Waah) Dean explained: “We ain’t limited to doing hip hop. We really wanted to do something outside the box. She just has raw talent. Her music speaks for itself.”
