Rick Rubin Early Life

Michael and Linda Rubin gave birth to Frederick Jay Rubin on March 10, 1963, in Long Beach, New York. Early Rubin’s years were spent on Lido Beach, New York. He went to New York’s “Long Beach High School.” With the help of his schoolmates, Rubin started a garage band, which later evolved into the punk group “The Pricks.” The band performed at the renowned New York music venue “CBGB,” but they were kicked out following a brawl with the crowd. After that, Rubin started a band called “Hose” and went on tour, mostly in the Midwest and California.

Rick Rubin Career Beginnings

Since the start of his career, he has owned a record label and produced music. He started his record label, “Def Jam Records,” in his dorm at “New York University” in 1982.

Rubin was able to extensively examine the components of hip-hop production because he collaborated with DJ Jazzy Jay of the ‘Universal Zulu Nation hip-hop awareness organization.

Rick Rubin Success

In 1984, Rubin and Simmons joined up to formally establish Def Jam Records. At the time, Rubin was still a student at “New York University.” When Rubin produced “Reign in Blood” for the metal band “Slayer” in 1986, it was his first time working with a metal band. The soundtrack of the film “Less Than Zero” was created by Rubin. He co-wrote and directed “Tougher than Leather,” “Run- DMC’s” second film, in 1988.  After leaving Def Jam Records, he relocated to California and founded “Def American Records.” Johnny Cash’s “American Recordings,” the first edition of the series, was a commercial triumph. Five more recordings by Cash followed, which aided in reviving his failing career. Rubin worked with the “Red Hot Chili Peppers” to create six studio albums between 1991 and 2011.
