Run-DMC: Down With the King (1993)

run dmc down with the kingBy Scott Goldfine

The godfathers of rap, Run-DMC, look to ascend the comeback ladder with the sixth album of their groundbreaking, 10-year career. The New Yorkers have shelved their derbys, shaved their heads, adopted a spiritual philosophy and brought in a blue-chip crew of new school producers.

The trio clearly sounds rejuvenated, but sadly the trendsetting have become the followers.
