41. RAISING HELL
Group: RUN DMC
Producer: JAM MASTER & RUN dmc
"Raising Hell is the third album by hip-hop group Run–D.M.C.. The breakthrough album trumped standing perceptions of commercial viability for hip-hop groups, achieving triple-platinum status and receiving critical attention from quarters that had previously ignored hip hop as a fad"
Essential shit to your hip hop collection right here mother fuckers. I'm a pretty
right now to leave a messy rant for this one but just know that this and a couple of other albums on here are essenitial; with the help of Public Enemy, eric b and rakim, Afriikka bamabta,, Sugar hill gang and these cats(rundmc). These guys helped built the genre that we call hip hop
for others people in the 90s like Organized Konfusion or a Tribe called quest to take and mold in their own format and take to a whole other direction..Like bringing new sounds to the table such as Jazz-infused hip hop, soul, Hard core, horror core, hell even some r&b, fuck the list goes on. And this album is not a great example...But a pure example of what i'm talking about. One of the best albums of the 80s and a good example of what helped move the rap/hip hop movement during its early birth from the early to mid 80s
