Fourth Album from the Kings of Hip Hop Reissued on Vinyl LP!
Featuring "Beats to the Rhyme," "Run's House" & "Mary, Mary"!
Released in 1988, Tougher than Leather followed Run-D.M.C.'s massively successful third album Raising Hell and furthered their innovative, aggressive, and hard-hitting sound that defined the hip-hop scene of the 1980s. From the incredible lead single, "Run's House," to their cover of The Monkee's "Mary, Mary," Tougher than Leather features a slew of incredible hits and is essential listening for any fan of classic hip-hop.
Tougher than Leather blends Run-D.M.C.'s infectious, charismatic flows and heavily sample-based production with hard-hitting raps, soaring choruses, and rapid-fire delivery. Standout tracks include "Run's House," "I'm Not Going Out Like That," as well as "Beats to the Rhyme," a story-based cut that stands as an anthem to hip-hop.
