In Billboard magazine in November of 1984, a little story
three-paragraphs long announced the creation of a new record label
called Def Jam. “The purpose of this company,” said a young artist
manager named Russell Simmons, “is to educate people to the real value
of real street music by putting out records nobody in the business
would distribute but us.”

Twenty-five years later, `the real value
of real street music” can be measured not just in billions of dollars,
but in the changed complexion of all of the following xpressions of
creative endeavor: music, movies, television, language, dance, fine

continued to stand for street music and the culture that birthed it,
