#2. Run DMC, Raising Hell (1986)

Favorite song: "Peter Piper"

Tech N9ne: “This one goes without saying. To me, [Raising Hell] was their biggest album. I listened to every song on [there]. Some of the songs on there like ‘My Adidas’ were monumental. Everybody knows that though.

“I remember listening to it from across the street because my mother and stepfather didn’t want me to use the money I was working for on rap music. So I had to go sneak and buy the records and play them at my neighbor’s house. I did [listen to it at my house] some of the time, but I couldn’t let them know I was spending my money on records.”
