Run-D.M.C. was a pioneering hip hop group during the 1980s founded by Joseph "Run" Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels, and Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell. The group had an impact on the development of hip hop through the 1980s and is credited with breaking hip hop into mainstream music. In 2004, Rolling Stone ranked them #48 in their list of the greatest musical artists of all time. The three members of Run-D.M.C. grew up in the neighborhood of Hollis in the New York City borough of Queens, USA.
Raising Hell is a 1986 album by hip-hop group Run-D.M.C..
Their breakthrough album, Raising Hell 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.
Notably, Raising Hell features the well-known collaboration with Aerosmith, "Walk This Way". While the song was not the first fusion of rock and hip hop, it was the first one to make a significant impact in the charts. It became the first rap song to crack the top 5 of The Billboard Hot 100. Raising Hell peaked at #1 on Billboard's R&B/Hip Hop Album chart, and at #6 on the Billboard 200.
The song "It's Tricky" would later be featured as the theme song of the game SSX Tricky, and later redone by the band Bloodhound Gang.
It ranked fourth on Chris Rock's list of the Top 25 Hip-Hop Albums of all time, and the comedian called it "the first great rap album ever"
In 1998, the album appeared in The Source in a list of the 100 Best Rap Albums.
Q (12/99, p.162) - 5 stars out of 5 - "...the apex of pre-Public Enemy, beatbox-based hip hop, a monument of massive, crisp beats plus the genre-bending 'Walk This Way'."
Vibe (12/99, p.162) - Included in Vibe's 100 Essential Albums of the 20th Century
Uncut (11/03, p.130) - 4 stars out of 5 - "[An album] that forced the music biz to take rap seriously."
In 2003, the album was ranked number 120 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 500 greatest albums of all time. - Rolling Stone (12/11/03, p.126) - "[T]he pioneering trio took hip-hop into the upper reaches of the pop charts, introducing mainstream to a new urban thunder: rap rock."
