When compared to the other rap hits of the time, Run DMC's sound was very unique in the sound of the beats and the skillful, push it to the limit vocals. By the mid 80's, Simmons had founded the hip hop record label Def Jam, and Run DMC became the most powerful group in hip hop. Run DMC then started to experiment mixing their sound with samples of heavy metal guitars, basically combining the sound of each genre to create a gritty, street savvy sound. Run DMC's success showed the rest of the hip hop world that success could be achieved by delivering constant new material that challenged the status-quo with unique sounds and challenging lyrics. Their 1986 album Raising Hell was preceded by the top ten hit “My Adidas”, and then the release of a cover of Aerosmith's “Walk This Way”, off the same album, became the groups biggest commercial hit.

This song hit home to be because one of the first concerts my fiancée and I ever went to was for an artist that Luke Bryan opened up for. He was a no name back then, but this was his hit song at the time. My fiancée and I sang the song, off key, at the top of our lungs, and just laughed the entire time. It was a great night for the both of us. After that song he sang his biggest hits which made the crown erupt in hoots and hollers.
The fact that this album birthed an entire rap genre is an accomplishment in itself. Nevermind the actual songs, just the presence of Chuck D and Flav was enough to revolutionize a nation. They had the perfect approach from the start; everybody wants to be apart of a revolution and rebellion. From their very first single - Rebel Without A Pause - the image of Public Enemy suddenly shifted into a rebellious, black rap group.

After every song ended, the host would just say if anyone wanted to give a shout out, to call there number. So not really any acknowledgement of the artist. They only announced certain songs and not all. There was no discussion of music or artist just events pertaining to music. They seem to have no knowledge besides trying to get ratings for there show.
Hip-Hop artists are the role-models of most African-Americans. As they hear their favorite artists, they want to do the same things as them. Drugs are first in the songs for example; one of the most popular artists is 2 chainz. On one of his songs, the title is “crack”.

For the Record In 1989, the introduction of two unlikely genres’ hip-hop and jazz fused together and hit the world of hip-hop. Keith Elam, best known as Guru- Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal, was credited for the birth of this jazz/hip-hop genre.
