Interesting how this group managed to make a name for themselves as well as reviving Aerosmith's career. Great tracks like Proud to be Black, It's Tricky, Raising Hell, Hit It Run, and of course Walk This Way. This undoubtly an essential album from an essential group to Hip-Hop

Part of the soundtrack to the summer of '86. This is a definite step up from The King Of Rock, with punchier songs that know their limits. The rock influences are cut back and more hip-hop flavors are introduced. I'm surprised to see that "Is It Live", with its drum corps-like percussion, is the lowest rated song. It's definitely my favorite.

Aerosmith have a lot to thank run dmc for. They got a 2nd career on the back of this.

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
