Producer: Rick Rubin, Russell Simmons
Album: Raising Hell
Label: Profile, Arista

Bob James' "Nautilus" may be the greatest break of all time, but "Take Me To The Mardi Gras" is definitely a close second. When Run–DMC rocked it for their mammoth Raising Hell LP, it was the closest a lot of new rap fans would ever get to experiencing the energy of a park jam, as Run and DMC traded verses back-and-forth over Jam Master Jay's precise break-beating. Never again will nursery rhymes sound so fly.
