Run-DMC Raising Hell Poster By Ken Taylor Release


Run-DMC's Raising Hell remains the turning point at which hip-hop crashed through mainstream barriers and never left. Anchored by the crossover smash "Walk This Way," the 1986 blockbuster still sounds like a revolution unfolding in real time. It has everything – hard-rock riffs, turntable scratching, itchy rhythms, hit singles – not the least of which are the trio's invigorating raps and inseparable chemistry

Up until Raising Hell, the rap juggernaut we know as Run-DMC was still in its building and breaking-down-doors phase. In 1986 that changed, and in a dramatic way. With their third long-player, the group had reached the mountaintop. It was the record that proved hip-hop wasn't a fad.

Besides the triple platinum status the album achieved, it was more than just a pop smash. It signaled a new era for rap music, and it was the no-turning-back point for the entire genre. This was the beginning of what we now call the Golden Era, and it still sounds as fresh today as it did 35 years ago. Collectionzz is honored to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Raising Hill with limited edition art by Ken Taylor, who said "I grew up listening to Run-DMC so for me this was both a lot of fun and a great honour!".
