"TouGHeR THaN LeaTHeR" [MoViE]...

What`s up y`all? Today I`m gon` share with y`all somewhat of a hidden gem, it comes in the form of a film from 1988 titled "Tougher Than Leather". It stars Run DMC, Russell Simmons & Rick Rubin, but also has lil` cameos from the Beastie Boys & even Slick Rick. It`s not the iLLeST written movie & probably falls into the B-Movie category, but for a fan of Hip Hop it`s definitely worth at least one viewing. A quick summary of this flick goes a lil` somethin` like this; Run DMC gets signed to a record label run by Vic Ferrante (played by Rick Rubin). Vic`s label`s actually a front, he`s using it to launder his father`s dirty money. Obviously with a label like that some grimy ish was happening behind the scenes & unfortunately for Runny Ray, one of Run DMC`s homies, he happens to see Vic & his boys killing someone so he ends up gettin` murked as well. Run DMC finds out about their boy being murdered & that sends `em on a mission to track down his killer...


I kept the summary pretty basic so I didn`t ruin the movie for ya......LoL, just some ya know it`s in .flv file format which you can view using the VLC Player without an issue. The reason it`s in that format`s real simple, it`s a smaller file size & that allows me to upload it quicker & also allows me to utilize a file sharing host that has a decent download speed. So go head & check it out...
