A great look at the legendary Def Jam Records – a label that was started in a college dorm room, then went on to have a huge impact on the sound of soul and hip hop for years to come! The set offers way more than just the early hits you might expect in the "classic" title – and instead include 55 tracks from a pretty wide spread of the label's years – with both important early hip hop tracks, and huge crossover cuts from later periods. Titles include "I Need A Beat" by LL Cool J, "It's The Beat" by Hollis Crew
, "Steppin To The AM" by 3rd Bass, "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan, "Regulate" by Warren G, "Party
Up" by DMX, "Behind Bars" by Slick Rick, "Crossover" by EPMD, "Fight For Your Right To Party
" by The Beastie Boys, "Pump That Bass/
Live" by Original Concept, "Public Enemy No 1" by Public Enemy, "Keep Your Distance" by Davy D, "My Love Is So Raw" by Alyson Williams with Nikki D, "Chasin A Dream" by Tashan, "99 Problems" by Jay Z, "Hustlin" by Rick Ross, "Hip Hop Is Dead' by Nas, "Just Friends" by Musiq, "I'll Be" by Foxy Brown, "Slam" by Onyx, and lots lots more!
