Hip-Hop’s 10 Strangest Collaborations (Pg. 6)
The Collaboration: Aerosmith featuring Run-DMC
The Result: “Walk This Way,” on a remake of a song from Aerosmith’s 1975 album, Toys in the Attic
The FAIL Scale: 0 FAILs out of 10. The original rock/rap remix, “Walk This Way” is a classic song and still sounds just as fresh as it did 25 years ago. It was certainly a strange pairing, but after Rick Rubin helped make the original connection between Aerosmith and Run-DMC, history happened.
