"It's Like That" - Run-DMC
By 1987, the three men from Hollis Queens, New York, known as Run-DMC and their DJ, Jam Master Jay, were perhaps the most popular music group in the world. Their first three records had launched hip-hop into the mainstream of popular culture where it remains to this day. Their equally legendary manager, Rick Rubin, had directed a film showcasing the group entitled, "Tougher Than Leather". An identically titled fourth studio album was hitting the record stores. This book, an autobiography of the group, is a tie-in to the then upcoming movie and published in advance of the record, all designed to secure Run-DMC (Joseph Simmons, Daryl McDaniels and Jason Mizell, respectively) as the reigning "Kings of Rock". Hard to find in any condition.
