July 12, 2012 (relaunch)
Ruffhouse Records is an American record label founded in 1989 by Chris Schwartz and Joe Nicolo as a joint venture with Columbia Records. In 1999, Schwartz and Nicolo closed the label, and Schwartz and Kevon Glickman continued with RuffNation Records. Ruffhouse's artist roster at the time of its original closing included The Fugees, Cypress Hill, Kris Kross, Wyclef Jean, Lauryn Hill, and Leela James.
The label was relaunched on July 12, 2012 through EMI, with Beanie Sigel as the first artist to be out through its relaunch with the release of his album This Time (2012). More announcements about the label's return are said to be coming soon.
