Considered by many to be the most influential hip-hop artists of all time, Run-DMC's melding of rap with rock, stripped-down musical arrangements, edgy lyrics, and straight-off-the-street look transformed the sound and style of rap during the early 1980s and helped make them the first hip-hop group to gain widespread popularity. Although Run-DMC was officially disbanded in 2002, the groundbreaking contributions of the trio from Hollis, Queens - Jason ""Master Jay"" Mizell, Joseph ""Run"" Simmons, and Darryl ""DMC"" McDaniels - to the evolution of rap ensure that their place in the history of hip-hop will remain forever secure. ""Run-DMC"" is a full-color, highly informative account of the indelible achievements of these legendary trailblazers.
