Legendary hip-hop groups reuniting is as exciting as the day animator and film director Mike Judge revealed in an interview he thought about bringing MTV’s Daria back. Both of these things, although totally unrelated, give us great joy. Hold on to your britches because rap pioneers Run-D.M.C. are set to headline this year’s Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, TX, per Rolling Stone. The possibilities of anticipated classics being performed like “Sucker MCs” or “My Adidas” are endless. For the first time in over a decade Joseph “Run” Simmons and Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels will reunite on stage for what has the potential to be an epic performance. Let’s hope the Rev can take one day off from his pastoral duties and just be Run–straight 1984 style.
Since their beloved friend and group member Jason “Jam-Master Jay” Mizell’s death in 2002, Run and DMC retired the Run-D.M.C. name in their deceased friend’s honor. So far Atlas Sound, Rakim, Danny Brown, Bob Mould and others are slated for the bill. The official lineup will be announced July 12th. Run-D.M.C. is easily believed to be the most influential rap group of all time. Witnessing the two remaining living legends reunite on stage should unequivocally be magical.
