I see Run DMC as one of the non-violent pioneers of the old-school hip-hop (which is why I was suprised to hear of this) I was listening to music news when I woke up and this was the first thing I heard. Run DMC was definitly more cultural about rap than say, Jay Z's "Money Aint A Thang" and Cash Money's "Bl|nG bLAnG." I'm not a big fan of old school rap (Although I love most post old-school stuff -e.i. Tupac, Bone, Cypress Hill, Digital Underground etc) I posted this here because it seemed to be big news in my school. I'm more of a alternative/metal/progressive rock freak myself ... I'm wierd like that.
but yeah, DMC ... good guys.
