AllHipHop Staff

This Sunday (August 30), a historic Street Renaming Ceremony will take place honoring Hollis, New York Hip-Hop pioneers Run-DMC.

City Councilman Leroy Comrie recently enacted legislation to rename 205th Street and Hollis Avenue to RUN-D.M.C. J.M.J.

Comrie’s bill was passed unanimously in June and signed into law by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

"Given their historic accomplishments, Run-D.M.C. is a tremendous source of pride for the Hollis community I represent," Comrie told in a previous statement. "Their dedication and hard work has inspired countless others and they have given back generously to this community.”

The news caps off a busy year for the group.

In April, Run-D.M.C. was inducted into the prestigious Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Run-D.M.C.’s street renaming ceremony will take place from 11AM-4PM on Sunday, August 30.

The unveiling of the street sign begins at 1:00 PM.
