I respect T La Rock’s “It’s Yours” as the classic that it is, but when I think of the real first record produced by Def Jam Recordings, it’s LL Cool J’s “I Need A Beat.” The above vignette was my favorite from last night’s show. I love to hear the story again and again on how James Todd met Rick Rubin. So legendary.
Hey, who still needs a rip? VH1 did the right thing and put the whole show on their site. Yeah, now that’s progress!
