WORLD EXCLUSIVE: Run-DMC Back Together

(AllHipHop News) Legendary Hip-Hop group Run-DMC is back together, sources have confirmed with AllHipHop.com today (July 6).

A source close to both camps revealed that a high-level meeting took place between Run and DMC.

While details of the reunited pair’s upcoming business deals were not revealed, plans are secure and in place for the future of Run-DMC.

“Run-DMC is definitely back together, and it’s a great day for Hip-Hop,” a source told AllHipHop.com.

Run-DMC retired almost ten years ago, in November 2002, shortly after the death of group member Jam Master Jay.

“We can’t perform anymore. Nobody wants to see Run-DMC without Jay,” Run said in 2002. “Run-DMC is officially retired. I cannot get out in front of my fans with a new DJ. Some rock bands can replace the drummer and I don’t know any other way but to be the three original members. That’s all I can say. We are retired.”

For over 10 years, the group has refused to perform together, even in April of 2009, when they were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

“Two turn tables and mic, that’s all it took to change the world,” Eminem said. “When I was a kid growing up in Detroit. I didn’t know what to be, then came Run-DMC. I had never heard or seen anything like them, but I knew I wanted to be them.”

The Hollis-Queens-based group was formed in late 1980 and is widely recognized as one of, if not the most influential Hip-Hop group of all time, influencing both the fashion and sound of the genre.

Both MTV and VH1 surveys have ranked the group #1 of all-time and they have a number of firsts under their belts.

Run-DMC is the first Hip-Hop group with gold, platinum and multi-platinum plaques, the first Hip-Hop group with a major endorsement deal (Adidas) and their also the first rappers to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.

During their hiatus, both Run and DMC stayed extremely busy.

Reverend Run hit big on the television with the hit reality series “Run’s House,” while also performing sold-out concerts with Kid Rock.

DMC won an Emmy Award for his documentary “DMC: My Adoption Journey,” while mentoring children with The Garden of Dreams Foundation.
