Tougher Than Leather is the fourth studio album by hip hop group Run–D. released on May 17, 1988 by Profile Records. The album was produced by the group members themselves, Davy D. and Rick Rubin.
Tougher Than Leather found the group playing catch-up, enlisting a new producer in Davy D and rapping on the Marley Marl-ish breakbeats popular at the time rather than the booming drum machines that they'd always used. On tracks like "They Call Us Run-DMC" and "Radio Station", they sound confused and out-of-touch, kicking old-school applause lines over anemic drum breaks
