In #1985 #LLCoolJ's debut album "#Radio" was released, also being #DefJam's the label's first full-length album release. Primarily produced by #RickRubin, who provided a sparse and minimal production style, the album experienced a significant amount of commercial success and sales for a #HipHop record at the time, earning U.S. Billboard chart success and selling over 500,000 copies within its first five months of release and certified platinum in 1989. 
Initial criticism of the album was generally positive, as #LL Cool J's lyricism and Rick Rubin's production were praised by several music critics. It has since been recognized by critics as first cohesive and commercially successful hip hop albums and LL Cool J's greatest work. #TWIMH

LL Cool J - I Need A Beat (Remix) (1984) LL Cool J's debut album, Radio, is 33 today. For those that say Boom Bap is only found in 90's Hip Hop, I disagree. The title of KRS-One's debut album in 1993 is Return of the Boom Bap. Read it again: RETURN of the Boom Bap. Isn't this song by LL and Run-DMC's "Sucker MC's" Boom Bap? I say they are actually the purest form of Boom Bap. Swipe left x 3! @llcoolj @revwon @kingdmc @rundmc

Today in #HipHopHistory: #Radio is the debut studio album by rapper #LLCoolJ. It was on November 18, #1985, by #DefJam Recordings and was the record label's first full-length album release. Radio was recorded during 1984 to 1985 at #ChungKingHouseofMetal in #NewYorkCity and produced primarily by #RickRubin, who provided a sparse and minimal production style. The album also features a sound punctuated by DJ scratching, often brief samples, and emphasis of the downbeat. LL Cool J's aggressive b-boy lyrics explored themes of inner city culture, teenage promiscuity, and braggadocio raps. The album experienced a significant amount of commercial success and sales for a hip hop record at the time, earning U.S. #Billboard chart success and selling over 500,000 copies within its first five months of release. On April 19, 1989, Radio was certified #platinum in sales by the Recording Industry Association of America (#RIAA), following sales in excess of one million copies in the United States. Initial criticism of the album was generally positive, as LL Cool J's lyricism and Rick Rubin's production were praised by several music critics. It has since been recognized by critics as LL Cool J's greatest work. Reflecting the new school and ghettoblaster subculture in the U.S. during the mid-1980s, Radio belongs to a pivotal moment in the history and culture of hip hop. Its success contributed to the displacement of the #oldschool with the new school form and to the genre's mainstream success during the period. Its success also served as a career breakthrough for LL Cool J and #RickRubin. Radio has been recognized by music writers as one of the first cohesive and commercially successful #hiphop albums. #classichiphop
