iTunes Review

Raising Hell is a showpiece for Run-DMC’s otherworldly rap skills: The rhymes flow fast and furious, starting with scratch-propelled opener “Peter Piper.” When they pose the question, “How devastating can an MC be?” the answer is as obvious as Jam Master Jay’s sharp DJ cuts. The jumpsuit-clad hip-hop pioneers are as adept mixing it up with rock ‘n’ roll (“It’s Tricky”) as asserting cultural consciousness (“Proud to Be Black”) on an album thick with clever jazz-funk samples and the illest 808 kicks and snares. The energy doesn’t let up for a minute, even as it climaxes on their Aerosmith collab “Walk This Way.”

Customer Reviews

Run-DMC Rocks!

Run-DMC is the best old school rap group there is! Their song "It's Tricky" is awesome!

THIS is hip hop

This is a perfect example of how hip hop should be, not about sex, drugs, breaking up, or making up , I hate rap but yet i love this song. It's fun, lively, and just great over-all. Also, there are ACTUAL instruments used and (almost) no computers/machines, who knew that was possible to make a good song?

Rap that isn't pointless beats

Click yes if you think hip-hop should go back old school.


Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

More than any other hip-hop group, Run-D.M.C. are responsible for the sound and style of the music. As the first hardcore rap outfit, the trio set the sound and style for the next decade of rap. With their spare beats and excursions into heavy metal samples, the trio were tougher and more menacing than their predecessors Grandmaster Flash and Whodini. In the process, they opened the door for both the politicized rap of Public Enemy and Boogie Down Productions, as well as the hedonistic gangsta fantasies...
