Rick Rubin Explains Early Reactions To Being White In Rap

When Rick Rubin met with LL Cool J for the first time, LL couldn’t believe his eyes, Rubin says.

“Both LL and Russell [Simmons] couldn’t believe that I was White when I met them,” Rubin says in a recent interview with satellite radio station Shade 45.

When Rubin met Russell Simmons, he received a similar response.

“I told [Simmons] I’d made this record,” Rubin says. “He couldn’t believe it. He was like, ‘You made that? That’s the Blackest record I’ve ever heard in my life. This was at a time when there was nobody White, at that time, in this world. It was interesting.”
