It should come as no surprise that Lil Waah has been performing since he was two years old, having been born into a musical family that includes his father (Waah Dean) and his uncle (Dee Dean) and his aunt (Chivon Dean) co-founders of the Ruff Ryders enterprise of companies.He got the rapping bug at an early age and grew up in the Powerhouse Studio with his dad listening to the music of DMX, Jadakiss, Eve, and like so many other children influenced by the music and artistry of Michael Jackson.
Spending all that time in the studio with his father and uncle, he had the opportunity to also learn how to produce and write music from his cousin Swizz Beatz in the studio.He wrote his own song and won the New York State WOW contest.He performed and wowed the crowd at Harlem’s Juneteenth Celebration in 2010.
Lil Waah enjoys playing keyboards and spending time in the vocal booth where he has been working on his first single to be released and distributed by Ruff Ryders Indy, Inc.He has achieved numerous trophies for track, basketball and karate and maintains high grades at the Cherry Lane Elementary School.“I just want people to feel me and appreciate my work,” he says. “I take this seriously. I don’t do this because people get paid from it. I really want to change the way music is done.”
Ruff Ryders Entertainment is the only music label in history that has ever licensed it's brand to streets. This concept was developed by one of the Ruff Ryder's CEO to develop the ultimate street team to help promote Ruff Ryders Entertainment projects and artist.

These aspects of RRlife have been displayed in all Ruff Ryder Videos ever aired.

DMX's Ruff Ryders anthem showcases the many aspects of a Ruff Ryder's lifestyle. DMX has always been known for his love of the pitbull breed and even goes by the name of Dog to those close to him. During the development of Ruff Ryders lifestyles this love for the breed spawned Ruff Ryders Game Dog. The ceo's of Ruff Ryders where active gamedog breeders and activists so it was only natural to incorporate this aspect when creating Ruff Ryders lifestyles. Because of the bad reputation of dog fighting Ruff Ryders was forced to changed the name from "Game Dog" to "Ruff Ryders Dog Division." There was even a Ruff Ryders Game Dog brand food sold on shelves at local pet shops. Today Ruff Ryders Dog Division has grown and taken on other breeds outside of pitbulls with award wining K9's across the nation.
