Description

Rap’s Big Bang, the action that made it the dominant musical force of the 21st century, was helped along by Steven Tyler putting his mic stand through the wall in the video for “Walk This Way.” The metaphor was big and dumb and direct: the walls between rock stars and rap stars were coming down, and rappers were on the same level as rock ‘n’ rollers known for excess. But that moment doesn’t have the same kind of impact--Run-D.M.C. were immediate stars--if the album it came from wasn’t the first masterpiece rap album in the history of the music, an album so perfect, so aesthetically sharp, that it lead to everything that has come since. The shell toe Adidas sold out, Run and DMC and Jam Master Jay became legends, and Raising Hell became the first platinum rap album ever.
