Description: Let's not mince words: Raising Hell is one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time. It's not just because it equally pissed off and lightened up leagues of metalheads (the unforgettable crossover Aerosmith cover, "Walk This Way"). It's not because "Peter Piper" is the king of primary school raps which were a weird late-'80s sensation (check out Schoolly D's "B-Boy Rhyme and Riddle" and LL Cool J's "Ain't My Rhyme Ain't Done" for further research into the phenomenon). And it's not even because this is the rap album from which all samples flow, cannibalized by nearly every other rap album ... (more)

100 Greatest American Albums of All Time (100 music items)

"Where rock and rap first said “I do” After 1984’s “Rock Box” brought guitar noise to hip-hop, the trio that invented hardcore rap sealed the deal by inviting Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry to retool “Walk This Way.” Rap-metal was born; “My Adidas” birthed the hip-hop/fashion axis. In Florida, a light bulb flashed over young Fred Durst’s head. Standout tracks: “Walk This Way,” “You Be Illin’ ”"

RS 500: Part 2 (100 music items)

""Man, did this record start something. Working for the first time with producer Rick Rubin, the Hollis crew of Run, D.M.C. and Jam Master Jay made an album so undeniable, it forced the mainstream to cross over to hip-hop. "Peter Piper" kicked the rhymes over avant-garde mixology, with a jingling cowbell sampled from an old jazz-fusion record. On "My Adidas," "It's Tricky" and "You Be Illin'," Run and D.M.C. talked trash while the DJ made their day. They even hit MTV with a vandalistic cover of A"
