Such a historical brand!! We are celebrating 30th year of Def Jam big shout out to the founders Rick Ruben and Uncle Russell Simmons (Hollis represent) Through out the year i will honor and tribute this label brand and lifestyle i also have some history there from early 2001-2003 so being part of it its only right i had to honor the house russ n rick built. RUN DMC the biggest and 1st Hip Hop group to break so many barriers we managed by Russell and Run was his brother so that def brought alot of momentum to the movement as well, T La Rocks record Its Yours was the 1st release from the label then u had dudes like Davey DMX and then LL Cool J who became a star and the Beastie Boys who were the 1st (white) Rappers btwn LL and the Beastie Boys the rest is history 30 years later we are still here from 2 dudes who started the label in a NYU dorm room lol i will be posting blogs videos and interviews of former artists execs and people who had a huge role of where def jam is where it is today. I graduated Def Jam university so i have to give back
