Who do not know about Run Dmc, got to get to know about Run Dmc. This group is one of the pioneers who influenced lots of rappers and DJ's. The group is formed by Joseph 'Run' Simmons, Darryl 'D.M.C' McDaniels.Last but not least is the DJ Jam Master Jay. They showed cats to 'walk this way'
Which was the title of the hit song with Aerosmith, which was in the charts all over the globe. These pioneers took hip hop from a sub-culture to a mainstream level. They were way ahead of their time with the lyrics and the beats.
All the members of Run Dmc grew up in Queens, New York. Run Dmc was the first hip hop act to get video spins on MTV. The first rap album to go gold was Run Dmc's self titled album. Run Dmc had mega success. The group signed a record deal Profile Records in 1983. Run Dmc dropped albums such as 'Raising Hell', 'Tougher Than Leather', 'Back from Hell'. In 1993 they released 'Down with the king'.
I think there no one yet to beat up tempo rapping of Run Dmc yet. R.I.P Jam Master Jay.
