'A detailed and rather unofficial cheeky unofficial history.' Q 'A comprehensive account of how two unlikely business partners - streetwise entrepeneur Russell Simmons and bearded AC/DC fan Rick Rubin - changed the face of music...Pleasingly, author Alex Ogg embellishes the story with bitchy tales of backbiting and much moneymaking as well...Thoroughly readable and often highly revealing, this book deftly highlights the fractious nature of music industry relationships...Ultimately, Rubin comes across as a music fan, while Simmons appears as a rather confused figure...a compelling saga.' KERRANG ' A perfect primter for anyone who doesn't know why rap is the most important musical movement of the past 25 years...it's a blast from page one.' MOJOFrom the Publisher:
Def Jam was one of the most prolific record labels of the 80s, whose artists included the Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, LL Cool J and Run DMC. This is Def Jam's story, but it's also the story of creator Russell Simmons, who was responsible for turning a ghetto craze into a worldwide phenomenon. This book documents some of the finest music recorded in the 80s and 90s.
