Day 2: Win A Copy of Def Jam’s 25th Anniversary Box Set

In celebration of Def Jam’s 25th Anniversary, the famed label released a limited edition box set of their greatest hits, and will be giving away one free copy everyday this week.

The collection includes five CDs broken into roughly five year time periods (1984-1988, 1989-1993, 1994-1998, 1999-2003 and 2004-2008) housed in a miniature milk crate and a Def Jam t-shirt made by Adidas.

In order to win, readers need to email their name and address to with the answer to this question: What was the name of the Def Jam group that included Russell Simmons’s nephew and what is that rapper’s name? The first person to answer the question correctly wins.

The Def Jam 25th Anniversary Box Set is currently in stores now. –Max G
