Run-D.M.C. - Rock Box mp3 album

Rock Box" is a 1984 hit single by Run–D. M It is the third single from their self-titled debut album, originally released through Profile Records, Inc. The heavy rock guitar riff and solos are original compositions performed by Eddie Martinez, also seen playing the electric guitar in the music video. DJ Jam Master Jay programmed the song's hip-hop beat. The single reached No. 26 on the Hot Dance Club Songs.

is the debut studio album of American hip hop group Run–D. released on March 27, 1984 by Profile Records. The album was produced by Russell Simmons and Larry Smith. It was considered groundbreaking for its time, presenting a harder, more aggressive form of hip hop. The album's sparse beats and aggressive rhymes were in sharp contrast with the light, funky sound that was popular in hip hop at the time.

Because the rhymes I say, sharp as a nail Witty as can be and not for sale Always funky fresh, could never be stale Took a test to become an MC and didn't fail I couldn't wait to demonstrate All the super def rhymes that I create I'm a wizard of a word . The second single from Run-D. s debut, self-titled album, Rock Box is rap music’s first foray into rock.

s third single, this was the first high-profile rap song to incorporate rock guitar, which boosted its appeal to white listeners the same way "Beat It," with an Eddie Van Halen solo, expanded Michael Jackson's fan base. The guitar part wasn't a sample - it was played by Eddie Martinez, who was a session player most notable for his work with Blondie

Our DJ's better than all these bands HUH!! { Jam Master Jay cuts then instrumental breaks down }. We got all the lines and all the rhymes We don't drop dimes and we don't do crimes We bake a little cake with Duncan Hines and never wear the vest they call the Calvin Kleins Cause Calvin Klein's no friend of mine Don't want nobody's name on my behind Lee.

Guitar - Eddie Martinez (see references on self-titled album and "King Of Rock" album backsides where Run-D. give big thanks to him.
