Run-DMC Reunites At Budweiser “Made In America” Festival in Philadelphia

(AllHipHop News) Legendary Hip-Hop group Run-DMC performed their first show together in over 10 years today (September 2) in Philadelphia.

A variety of acts hit the stage today in Philadelphia during final day of the Budweiser “Made In America” Festival.

Tens of thousands of people crowded onto the Ben Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, where acts like Santigold, Eve, and Jill Scott performed during a muggy day marked by showers.

But the highlight of the event thus far was the reunification of Run-DMC, who hit the stage around 5:30PM.

The group, backed ran through popular songs from their catalog like “Rock Box”, “It’s Like That”, “It’s Tricky”, “Peter Piper”, and others.

“Damn, I ain’t did this in so long, but it feels so damn right,” Rev Run said before the group launched into the songs “Here We Go,” “Beats to The Rhymes,”

The late DJ Jam Master Jay’s sons, Jason Mizell Jr. and TJ Mizell, took over the Run-DMC set to showcase their DJ skills, which impressed the crowd.

“Some years back, my DJ got assassinated when he was still in the ‘hood. Me and D broke the group up without Jay. He was everything to us. We put a silence on the group,” said Rev Run from the stage. “Jam Master Jay opened up a DJ school and both of his kids are here. They both DJs. They are serious DJs.”

Odd Future will perform later in the evening, while Drake and Pearl Jam are slated to close out the Budweiser “Made In America” Festival late tonight.
