VIDEO: RUN-DMC “Beats to the Rhyme” x RIP JAM MASTER JAY
Run-DMC had a lot of great records. But “Beats to the Rhyme” from their Tougher Than Leather album is one of my favorites. Run and DMC rocking the mic while the late great Jam Master Jay cuts up “Nautilus” by Bob James something crazy. I’m pretty sure the crew from Hollis performed “Beats to the Rhyme” on Saturday Night Live in 1986 but that clip isn’t on the Internets at the moment. Video from Arista above, and performing at the world famous Apollo below.
RIP JAM MASTER JAY (1-/21/1965 – 10/30/2002)
