Earth-shattering 1984 debut from hip-hop's first megastars. Produced by the group with Rick Rubin, this record helped establish Def Jam as a label, Run-D.M.C. as arena-filling heroes, and hip-hop as a serious force in the music market. With raw, minimal beats and in-your-face rhymes, Run-D.M.C. includes the classics "Sucker MCs," "Hard Times," and "It's Like That."
