Run DMC Street Renaming Ceremony – Videos

As previously reported by, Run DMC was honored to have their group’s name as a street name in their old neighborhood in Hollis a couple of weeks ago.  If you weren’t there for the historic event, here are some videos from the cool people at RapRadar.  First up: The street-sign unveiling.

Rev. Run said a few words, looking a little nostalgic as he talked about how he looked up to the late DJ Jam-Master Jay.  Touching.  Next is DMC.

And last but not least, Jay-Master J’s mom.

It’s always heartwarming to see a legendary group that doesn’t forget where they came from.  Congratulations once again to Run DMC, and we all hope that Hollis will deliver the next generation of Hip Hop legends!

That is way cool for their hometown to give them a reminder that they remember their babies

I think this is great & Well Deserved,these are true pioneers of HIP HOP, sadly JMJ is longer here to physically witness, but I'm sure in spirit he will always be around.
