The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Their first release, the 12-inch single “It’s Like That”/”Sucker MCs” inaugurated a revolution in rap. Released on Profile Records and produced by Kurtis Blow, it was the first rap single with a hard beat and stripped-down, no-nonsense delivery. […]

This is one of those rare albums that not only started a true music revolution, but has stood the test of time as one of the greatest albums ever recorded. That is a bold statementand I don’t make it lightly given all the great music (both rap and otherwise) that has been recorded over the last 100 years. […]

The video for their third single, ‘Rock Box’ (1983), received airplay on MTV, which was unusual for a black performer, rap or otherwise, at that time. Their self-titled first album, Run-D.M.C. (1984) was the first rap album to go goldand the album was dedicated to the slain Junebug, a DJ at the Disco Fever club. […]
