Released in 1988, Tougher Than Leather was the culmination of the Rap/Rock road that Run-DMC travelled in since their earlier albums King Of Rock MOVLP675 and Raising Hell MOVLP633. Its superb production, booming 808 beats combined with guitar samples, catchy choruses and smart rhymes made Tougher Than Leather undoubtedly the best Hip Hop record that came out in 1988. Great tracks include *Mary, Mary*, *Runs House* and *I m Not Going Out Like That*. Its equal appeal to Hip Hop as well as Rock fans made the album a million seller, and underlined Run-DMCs stature as living Hip Hop legends all over the world. Pressing on 180 gram audiophile vinyl.
