Genre: Hip-Hop, R&B
Label Number: 314 536 377-2

A companion piece to Def Jam Greatest Hits, Def Jam Greatest Hits Hardcore is very similar to its predecessor in that it doesn't quite follow any specific chronological order and combines the label's early hits with later hits, which doesn't always make musical sense. Also, there are as many "hardcore" songs on Greatest Hits as there are on Hardcore, so the musical difference between these two discs is negligible. Still, Def Jam Greatest Hits Hardcore has a number of terrific singles, including Public Enemy's "Public Enemy #1," Method Man's "Method Man (Remix)," EPMD's "Gold Digger," L.L. Cool J's "I Need a Beat," Redman's "Blow Your Mind" and the Beastie Boys' "Paul Revere," which makes it a worthwhile purchase for casual rap fans.
