On May 15th 1986, Run-DMC released their 3rd studio album, Raising Hell. It would become the 1st Platinum and multi-Platinum hip hop record in history.
I'm paying homage with this musical mashup using 1986-87 Fleer #31 Julius Erving... a subject of the hit single You be Illin'.
Today you won a ticket to see Doctor J
Front row seat (in free!) no pay
Radio in hand, snacks by feet
Game's about to start, you kickin' popcorn to the beat
You finally wake up, Doc's gone to town
Round his back, through the hoop,
then you scream "Touchdown!"
You be Illin'
This Doctor is Illin', but actual record used is a completely random album. What songs are on it? Spin it and find out!
About Junk Wax Records
In 1980, Fleer won a 5-year long monopolization lawsuit vs Topps, opening up the baseball card market for competition. Throughout the decade, production increased and boxes of wax packs filled the shelves of new hobby shops across America.
Before a record album is pressed onto vinyl, it first gets mastered, or cut, on wax. Junk Wax Records is a mashup of iconic cards from this era and recycled 12-inch LPs. My Junk Wax logo is inspired by the Fleer crown, as their court battle flipped this industry upside down.
