Russell and Rick...

Def Jam was founded by Rick Rubin in his dorm room at New York University and its first release was a single by his rock group, Hose. Russell Simmons joined Rubin shortly after when they were introduced to each other by DJ Jazzy Jay. The first single released with a Def Jam Recordings logo was T La Rock & Jazzy Jay "It's Yours". I actually had an original T LA Rock Def Jam jacket but I sold it awhile ago but its in good hands. You really cant say enough about Russell and Rick because they were the forefathers of bringing hip hop mainstream and paved the way for a lot of what you see now-a-days...besides the fact its 90% junk compared to the old music. P.S. Rick Rubin rockin a vintage Trashy Lingerie t-shirt, hilarious
