Rick Rubin’s Return To Rap
Although his appearance screams recluse, Rick Rubin never strayed away from producing albums. He was just removed from the Hip-Hop scene. After parting ways with Def Jam Records in 1988–the label he founded–he embraced his rock roots with intense fury, recording with the likes of System of a Down, Rage Against the Machine and Johnny Cash. From seemingly out nowhere, TBA’s track #9 saw Jay finding a way to combine the best of both worlds (for real, this time) to create one of his greatest hits.
