Coming off its 30th anniversary showcase at SXSW, Def Jam continues to celebrate its milestone year by releasing four reissues this month: Kanye West’s “808s & Heartbreak”; Public Enemy’s “Icon”; Ludacris’ “Back For The First Time” and T La Rock/Jazzy Jay’s “It’s Yours.” Check out the details below.

Rick Rubin and Russell Simmons started Def Jam in a New York University dorm room and went on to release some of the most significant albums in hip-hop. The label’s current roster includes 2 Chainz, Frank Ocean, Big Sean and Jhene Aiko.
