In Honor of Black History Month: Run DMC

80's Rap Group, 1st Rap group to reach multiplatinum album status

 

Run DMC was a ground breaking hip hop group started in the 1980's who kicked off the new school of hip hop music.  They were also the first rap group to reach gold status and the first to be nominated for a Grammy.  They initiated countless other firsts such as reaching multiplatinum status for their album "Raising Hell" (1986).  From a musical standpoint, Run DMC was super unique and influential because of how they put a spotlight on the relationship between MC and DJ within a group.  Their music illustrated a perfect flow of harmony between the two aspects. Jam Master Jay, D.M.C., and Rev Run earned their spot in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2009. They are the second rap group in history to achieve this high honor.

"Hip-hop is here to stay, Run-D.M.C. is here to stay." - Run DMC
