King of Rock is the second studio album by hip hop group Run–D. released on January 21, 1985 by Profile Records. The album was produced by Russell Simmons and Larry Smith. King of Rock became the first rap album released on CD. The album saw the group adopting a more rock-influenced sound, with several tracks prominently featuring heavy guitar riffs. The song "Roots, Rap, Reggae" features Yellowman became one of the first hybrids of rap and dancehall.

Take the title of Run-D. s King of Rock somewhat literally. True, the trailblazing rap crew hardly abandoned hip-hop on their second album, but they did follow through on the blueprint of their debut, emphasizing the rock leanings that formed the subtext of Run-D. Nearly every cut surges forward on thundering drum machines and simple power chords, with the tempos picked up a notch and the production hitting like a punch to the stomach.

King of Rock takes "Rock Box" as its starting-off point, adding a whole lot of heavy rock guitars to the group's musical palette. The new approach endeared the group to suburban America, but it meant that they'd never again capture the dystopian heaviness of their debut. The album, however, has a ton of filler: the goofy human-beatbox jam "Hit It Run", the ridiculously tossed-off dis "Dumb Girl", the utterly blatant Slick Rick bite "Perfection". Walk This Way" totally fucking sucks, a weak and half-baked novelty-rap jam which got them (and Aerosmith) all over MTV but which sounds no better for having anticipated the commercial possibilities of rap-rock.

Com’s Matt Conaway on September 29, 2005. Run DMC – King of Rock – 5/5. by Matt Conaway. I’m the king of rock/there is none higher/sucker emcees should call me sire/to form my kingdom/you must use fire/I won’t stop rocking till I retire. And with that Run-DMC took hip-hop from the boroughs of NY to the brink of mainstream prominence. Before Rick Rubin put his minimalist stamp on the group, Run-DMC was the first hip-hop group to make Rock and Roll cool in the hood.
