Run-DMC were the forerunners of flashiness in rap. The three emcees from Hollis, Queens formed the first hip-hop act to go gold with their self-titled debut album, the first to be nominated for a Grammy and the first to earn platinum certification for their second album 'King of Rock.'
Being one of the first acts to bring rap to the forefront, Run-DMC has been honored with tons of awards and accolades including being named the Greatest Hip-Hop Group of All Time by MTV and becoming the second rap group to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
We all know that music and sports go hand-in-hand with athletes wanting to be musicians and rappers wanting to be athletes. Those two worlds collide for ESPN the Magazine's music issue, which features NBA basketball player LeBron James and producer Dr. Dre on the cover.
Here's another example of a stalled hip-hop murder case. The slaying of Run-DMC's resident DJ Jam Master Jay made national headlines due to the cloud of mystery surrounding his death on Oct. 30, 2002. Ten years later, his killer remains at-large.
