On this day in 1983, Run DMC’s “It’s Like That” peaked at 15 on Billboard’s “Hot R&B Singles”. It was the debut single that put the group on path to being one of the best groups in Hip Hop.
“It’s Like that” was just a cassette single at first. Its success later put the single on RUN D.M.C’s self-titled album. The song has stood the test of time, appearing in video games like Grand Theft Auto and Scarface. Jason Nevins even remixed the song, adding a dance beat to it.
