Today is the 37th anniversary of Run-D.M.C.’s debut self-titled album. It’s #242 on the RS list that matters, #378 on the one that doesn’t. It’s possibly one the most important of all hip-hop/rap albums. It debuted the group that would make rap mainstream. Sure there was some of the classics like Kurtis Blow, Grandmaster Flash, Sugar Hill Gang and what not but Run-D.M.C. made it popular for everyone. Some may argue that with me and that’s okay. I’m not a rap expert, but that’s how I see it. Here’s another important hip-hop group covering a tune from this album. Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Two years ago, a friend of mine asked me to say some MC rhymes. So I said this rhyme I’m about to say. The rhyme was Def a-then it went this way: Took a test to become an MC and Orange Krush became amazed at me. So Larry put me inside his Cad-illac, the chauffeur drove off and we never came back. Dave cut the record down to the bone and now they got me rockin on the microphone. And then we talkin autograph, and cheers and laugh. Champagne caviar, and bubble bath. But see ahh, ah that’s the life, ah that I lead and you sucker MC’s is who I please. So take that and move back catch a heart attack because there’s nothin in the world, that Run’ll ever lack. I cold chill at a party in a b-boy stance and rock on the mic and make the girls wanna dance. Fly like a Dove, that come from up above. I’m rockin on the mic and you can call me Run-Love.” – “Sucker MCs (Krush-Groove 1)” (Hardy/McDaniels/Simmons/Smith)
