Raising Hell comments
Comments for the album Raising Hell by Run-D.M.C.:
I like the song My adidas. :D
The rap album that started it all. Prior to this one, rap was more a fringe element on the music scene. These guys made it cool.
Launched hip-hop into the mainstream, and despite "My Addidas", it's not a colossal sell-out. Quality early rap.
Run D.M.C. was probably the first rap group (or rappers, for that matter) that consistently put out dope raps, popularizing the budding music genre. This album, their best, was probably THE album that introduced white american masses to the heretofore black genre (save the beasties, of course) via the rap/rock jam "walk this way" (which also put aerosmith back on the radio). Other tracks to sample are "my adidas" and "it's tricky".
In my opinion, this is just as good as It Takes A Nation Of Millions To Hold Us Back. Fun, upbeat hip-hop with a few jokes, smart lines and cool beats. 9/10
Best track: Walk This Way
I am not a fan of “Rap”, but this old school stuff rocks. To be honest I probably wouldn’t have bought this tape when I was a kid if it weren’t for the Aerosmith/Run DMC collaboration of Walk This Way. C’mon I am a rocker! But after many, many, many, many weeks of sitting on my front porch jamming to this one, I must admit these pioneers of rap have become a part of my musical past.
