Description

Def Jam Recordings was founded by Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons in 1982. The label focused mostly on rap and hip hop, but the thrash metal band Slayer was signed to it, releasing Reign in Blood and South of Heaven on the label before Rubin left, taking Slayer with him to form Def American, which later changed names to American Recordings.
