|Availability:||OUT OF STOCK|
|Status:||SIGN UP FOR RESTOCK NOTICE|
On their fourth album, RUN D.M.C. journeyed outside of their comfort zone, influenced by the great hip-hop being produced by other artists at the time. The group partnered with producer Davy DMX, who leaned towards more sampled-based production. It features the singles "I'm Not Going Out Like That", "Run's House" and "Mary, Mary". Run-DMC didn’t abandon its hard-rocking sound on Tougher Than Leather by any means. The group remains one of the best hip-hop groups ever to rhyme amidst blaring electric guitars.
Despite being given a mixed reception at the time of its release, it is now hailed as a seminal classic in hip-hop and many see it as an underrated album. Tougher Than Leather had its champions though. One of the most prominent people who spoke in its defense was Chuck D, who considers it one of the most misunderstood hip-hop albums ever recorded.
Heavyweight vinyl produced by Arista Records in 2017.
