Def Jam scored an almost unfathomable streak of hits during the opening years of the golden age of hip-hop. The legendary label founded by Rick Rubin & Russell Simmons launched the careers of LL Cool J, the Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, and many others. This sleekly packaged four-disc box set, released in 1994, chronicles the halcyon years of the imprint. The set features smash hits like "Around the Way Girl," "Fight the Power," and "Fight for Your Right" from the abovementioned superstars, alongside groundbreaking singles like Slick Rick's "Children's Story" and Onyx's "Slam," winding up as hip-hop took its next turn with tracks like Method Man's "Bring the Pain."
