Recently, Def Jam celebrated its 30th anniversary in the world of Hip-Hop. Founder/producer Rick Rubin teamed up with Hip-Hop mogul Russell Simmons to create a label that set the standard for artist repertoire and for commercial success.
Like the saying goes, big things come in small packages. Rubin began scheming on what came to be the greatest Hip-Hop label of all time in a tiny NYU dorm room. In Rick Was Here, Rubin tells us about the parties he used to throw in his old dorm room, and having legendary industry people such as Adam Horovitz from The Beastie Boys pick out records in his dorm room. Check out the inspiring clip above and let us know what you think.
