The word legendary goes hand in hand with the word iconic, which perfectly describes the one record label that defines hip-hop…Def Jam.
For 30 years, the brand that Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons built has consistently pumped out quality music and groundbreaking artists. From the days of LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys and Public Enemy to Jeezy, Jay-Z and Nas, the Def Jam logo has spun hits with force and volume to the masses.
For the month of November, Def Jam and RESPECT Magazine bring to you the world’s best DJs to take you through the history of this storied record label. 30 DJs. 30 Mixes. 30 Days. With hot new tracks to oldie but goodies to exclusive songs rarely heard, our All-Star team of DJs got you covered.
Each DJ brings a different flair to the mixes you’ll end up keeping on repeat long after November is done. So click the links above and enjoy the power of Def Jam 30. – Datwon Thomas Editor in Chief of Respect Magazine
You may know him as Bumpy Knuckles or Freddie Foxxx but whatever name you know him as, the one thing that’s for sure is his ability to terrorize a microphone. Watch the studio get burned down in the 6th session of “Bars In The Booth.”
In part two of Complex’s PRhyme documentary, the duo discuss Adrian Younge’s involvement, DJ Premier’s challenge to sample one artist and how the 16-year-old son of Royce Da 5’9″ was inspired to be a producer.
Killer Mike and El-P had a Run The Jewels show in St. Louis the same night that a grand jury decided not to indict Darren Wilson for the killing of Michael Brown. Rather than just roll along with the show, Killer Mike delivered a passionate speech before the show that explained his personal concern for the future of his sons and his frustration with the decision. For Killer Mike, it’s always bigger than just hip hop and this is something you must listen to and absolutely respect.
