Tinted windows don't mean nothing They know who's inside"
I'm not a big fan of rap and would estimate that I only have less than two dozen cds of that genre. A clear pluarity, if not most, of those are by Public Enemy but the first group that got me into rap was Run-DMC. In June of 1988 I bought a copy of their 1986 recording Raising Hell and enjoy it quite a bit. The rapping made it into something very esoteric for me while at the same time the music was rock oriented enough so that it seemed accessible. Of coure that didn't turn me on to hip-hop and it was nine years before Spearhead got me listening to the genre on any serious level.
