Raising Hell has been on repeat around here for the past few days at Casa de haha, occasionally peppered with stray Spank Rock tracks because they just mesh together so well. If “You Be Illin'” came out today, Run-DMC would be the new indie-rap sensation. All the blogs would be raving, and then next month, they’d be overrated and only latecomer blogs like this one (cough cough) would be posting their songs. Kinda like with Spank Rock (out of B-more, what!), whose song “Bump” likewise would not seem out of place on any rap album from 1986.
Run-DMC – You Be Illin’ (Buy It)
