I can go ON and ON about what Run-DMC has meant to hip hop AND music in general. If it wasn't for them, hip hop would probably not be enjoying the fruits of its labor at this moment. Run-DMC emerged and changed hip hop forever, and it all started with this album, the first of many hits from this legendary trio. Here's the review:
Album Highlights: Hard Times, Sucker MCs, Rock Box, and It's Like That.
Production: Thumbs up, old school at its very best.
Lyrics and Subject Matter: Thumbs up, they were truly one of a kind.
Originality: Thumbs up, not too many people were coming like Run-DMC.
The Last Word: What a powerful beginning for perhaps the greatest trio in hip hop history. Run-DMC set tremendous trends with this debut, and you can tell that they were having the time of their lives with this album. A STRONG RECOMMENDATION for this album.
