Run DMC To Be Inducted In To The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame

It’s official, after being nominated in September, legendary hip-hop group Run DMC has earned a spot at the prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame according to New York’s Daily News.

The trio hailing from Hollis, Queens are largely credited as the first major rap act to crossover in to the mainstream with such hits as “My Addidas,” “Run’s House,” “King of Rock,” “It’s Tricky” and “Walk This Way.” Consisting of Run (Joesph Simmons), DMC (Darryl McDaniels) and the late DJ Jam Master Jay (Jason Mizell), Run DMC will be the second hip-hop group to make to make it in to the hall. In 2007 rap pioneers Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five were honored.

In related news, 50 Cent, who was mentored by JMJ early on in his career, is currently working on a film about the iconic DJ entitled Two Turntables and a Microphone: The Life and Death of Jam Master Jay Documentary. He will be packaging the DVD with the deluxe edition of his upcoming album, Before I Self Destruct.

Run DMC will be joined by fellow 2009 Rock and Roll inductees Metallica, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Jeff Beck, Bobby Womack and Wanda Jackson, among others in a ceremony on April 4th in Cleveland. - Elan Mancini

    It’s about Time !! I wish Jam Master Jay was living to experience the induction. Much Respect to Hip Hop

  • Mutada al sader the king

  • Hate Hate and more Hate

    Bullshit!

    If they’re going to let these niggas in, they better include Rick Rubin, because he wrote most of there rhymes and made most of there beats. He even gave them the fucking name of the group.

    Jam Master J couldn’t even scratch the moles on his back let alone records on the turntable. And don’t get me started on these niggas ABC ass nursery rhymes.

    • NAWLEDGE

      Learn the difference between “there” and “their” and MAYBE your opinions will hold some weight. Until then, STFU.

      Also, should Barry Gordy be inducted into the Rock N Roll Hall of Fame? Cause he wrote most of The Temptations hit records. Fuck outta here son.

      Congrats to Run DMC. Bout damn time.

    Mad props to some of the forefathers of hip hop. You jerks on here promoting your sorry ass basement rap songs that you made in your grand-mom’s attic need to pay homage and better acknowledge why it is that you’re trying to do what you want to do!
