Def Jam, in two words, are just that.

Times may have changed and the so-called 'music' tossed out there into our ears may taste worse than a Big Mac, but this collection, presented over 5 CDs and 60 songs, is an anthology of some of the greatest rap and hip-hop ever laid down on vinyl. The time line literally goes from 1985 to 2010 (well, 2009), and the highlights are fantastic.

The value of this box set is immeasurable - legendary rappers such as LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, Slick Rick, EPMD, Montell Jordan, Nikki D and many more of the original brothers (and sisters) of rap music are featured here, many of them originating even their sound on this one label.

Def Jam was even smart enough to venture into hard rock, releasing the band Slayer (one of the hardest metal bands to lay it down in the 80's and 90's).

We go from rap to hip-hop, and we go hard: Beanie Sigel and DMX to the likes of early Rhianna and Ja Rule, and don't forget Ludacris and Foxy Brown!

The tracks on the 5 CD's go like this:

CD1 (1984-1988):
01. LL Cool J - I Need A Beat [04:01]
02. Hollis Crew - It's The Beat [04:15]
03. Public Enemy - Bring The Noise [03:46]
04. Beastie Boys - Paul Revere [03:42]
05. Oran "Juice" Jones - The Rain [05:08]
06. LL Cool J - Goin' Back To Cali [04:10]
07. Beastie Boys - Brass Monkey [02:39]
08. T-La Rock - It's Yours (feat. Jazzy Jay) [04:21]
09. LL Cool J - I Need Love [05:23]
10. Slick Rick - Children's Story [03:59]
11. 3rd Bass - The Gas Face (Remix) [02:08]
12. Public Enemy - Fight The Power [04:37]

CD2 (1989-1993):
01. LL Cool J - Mama Said Knock You Out [04:49]
02. EPMD - Gold Digger [05:02]

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Collection!! May 16, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this box set for my husband and he LOVES it. It has all of his old school favorites and then some new stuff that's good too! The shirt only comes in X-Large, he gave it to me for a sleep shirt....but it is a cool shirt for someone who likes to wear baggy tshirts! I personally don't listen to this type of music, but my husband said that this was the best gift I've ever given if you like old and new school rap, this is the box set to buy!
