Once upon a time def Jam was truly “def.” The company was so fresh and new that Russell Simmons once did a record with the legendary Jazzy Jay. We can’t remember why Rush was forced to the mic, but the results are an old school classic produced by Mr. Rick Rubin. We also posted the other version, “Def Jam,” which only featured Jazzy Jay. He sounded like one of the Transformers. Definitely Def!
