Black History Month Fun Fact of the Day // February 25th
Run-DMC was an American hip hop group from Hollis, Queens, New York, founded in 1981 by Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels, and Jason Mizell. Run-DMC is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture and one of the most famous hip-hop acts of the 1980s. Along with LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys, and Public Enemy, the group pioneered new school hip-hop music. Run-DMC was the first group in the genre to have a gold album (Run–D.M.C., 1984) and be nominated for a Grammy Award. They were the first to earn a platinum record (King of Rock, 1985), the first to earn a multiplatinum certification (Raising Hell, 1986), the first to have their videos broadcast on MTV, and the first to appear on American Bandstand and the cover of Rolling Stone. Run-DMC was the only hip hop act to perform at Live Aid in 1985.

The first time I ever heard hip hop I was a teenager in a London record store and they were playing “Survival” by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five. I bought the 12” and was mesmerized by this new kind of music. It was @officialrundmc’s “King Of Rock” though that blew my ever loving mind a few years later. They had the attitude, beats, and rock n roll power that eclipsed 98% of my record collection. Live they were a phenomenal force of funk, swag & power. They were the first hip hop to go #1 on the charts, 1st gold record, 1st to crack MTV. It was a huge honor to play on their song “Big Willie” in the early ‘90’s. Just turned my kids on to “It’s Tricky” & “Tougher Than Leather” and now their minds are blown too. Unparalleled ground breakers, THANKYOU #RUNDMC. #BlackHistoryMonth#HipHop
