There’s no question that Run DMC is one of the most influential rap groups of all-time, and they have seen tremendous success. The trio became staple hit-makers in the 1980’s, touring the world and selling out arenas. Although they have faced some very tough tribulations, the group managed to still carry out an incredible legacy that will be honored at this year’s Grammy Awards.
