"This handsome, oversized publication chronicles an iconic era in the history of popular music. An extremely readable and browsable book, with glorious photos." ~Library Journal
"Given the impact of Russell Simmons's and Rick Rubin’s Def Jam Records on pop culture, this tribute tome is an inevitable celebration of a quarter of a century (an eternity in pop media) of the brand’s existence. No surprises here—a useful collection of history and imagery of the label that gave the world the Beastie Boys and LL Cool J, Jay-Z and Kanye West. Designed by Def Jam’s founding creative director, Cey Adams, with text by founding publicist Bill Adler and Dan Charnas, the book makes plain the two-headed nature of what has become a potent enterprise—serious business and serious fun." ~The Daily Beast
"Def Jam is not just a record label...but a bona fide chapter in pop culture history." ~New York Times Book Review
