It's Like That

It's Like That by Run-D.M.C. vs Jason Nevins was a UK number 1 hit on Saturday, March 21, 1998 spending 6 week(s) at the top of the UK charts. It became a club favorite. It was Simmons who came up with the idea for the song after studying Kurtis Blow and getting encouragement from his older brother Russell (Blow's manager), who encouraged him to tell stories in his raps and give them a wide appeal through universal themes. In 1998, house music producer Jason Nevins remixed this, and the new version became the most successful rap single in the UK, spending six weeks at #1 and topping the charts in 30 other countries including Germany. Nevins received a standard fee of $5000 for his efforts. When this reached #1, Run DMC became the first band to wait for over 10 years between their first hit ("Walk This Way" in 1986) and their first chart topper in the UK.
