In Hip Hop History Today “Run-D.M.C. released the single It’s Like That / Sucker M.C.’s” March 12, 1983
It’s Like That is a song by hip hop group Run–D.M.C. It was first released in 1983 on a cassette backed with the track “Sucker M.C.’s”. The release marked the start of Run-D.M.C.’s career and is widely regarded as ushering in a new school of hip hop artists with a street image and an abrasive, minimalist sound that marked them out from their predecessors. Both tracks were collected on the trio’s eponymous debut album in 1984. Listen to “It’s Like That” above.
