Tougher Than Leather

Tougher Than Leather is a 1988 studio album for American rap group Run-D.M.C. and a follow-up to their hit Raising Hell. While the new record did not maintain the same popularity as its predecessor, it obtained platinum status and spawned the favorites "Run's House" and "Mary, Mary" (a cover of The Monkees' song). Tougher Than Leather was the group's fourth effort and blended in elements of not only rap but also rock n' roll and funk, making it their most varied effort to date alongside King of Rock. "Papa Crazy" is based on Papa Was a Rollin' Stone by the The Temptations.

A film of the same name, starring the members of Run-D.M.C. and their producer, Rick Rubin, was also released in 1988.
