How Run

Best of: Run Dmc

The rest is, as they say, history, and the song is a genre-busting track that bore our first rap superstars and fundamentally altered the musical landscape forever. Tyler smashes down the wall with a microphone stand, the two groups join together on stage, and soon the Bad Boys of Boston with their flowing locks and many scarves are jamming with the pride of Hollis, Queens, clad in their trademark Kangol fedoras and unlaced Adidas. Hip-hop reigns supreme in music today, but rewind to the early 1980s and it was the faintest of blips on the national consciousness. Only then did hip-hop become insinuated in mainstream culture. Released in 1986, the mashup—itself a foreign concept at the time—was the brainchild of a young producer named Rick Rubin. Is that because these two sides got together? That wasn't exactly the whole truth. Even if the Grammys have been dragged kicking and screaming to finally recognizing the genre, it is the music that makes us talk and think.

Bash Brothers Presents Best Of Run DMC

Best of: Run Dmc

But as Edgers describes in his book, the two bands had nothing in common and their histories were entirely separate, which is why he relates their histories in parallel chapters until they converge on the recording session. The new story, at least the story they tell me, is that they felt left out. In the old days, Clark Gable or Frank Sinatra, these people were untouchable. It is the predominant music of our culture—and our marketing culture. In an interview with Esquire, Edgers recounts the wildest things he learned like just how little each group thought of each other and the most frustrating moments of his research wild discrepancies in accounts, for one , and shares two rare videos from the recording session.

At the very least, it accelerated it dramatically. As history would bear out—just turn on your radio now or open any magazine today—the moment turned out to be bigger than both bands. Edgers had to sort through all of that. It was before The Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Photo by Danny Sanchez Back on Sunday, March 9, 1986, in a Manhattan recording studio, members of two completely disparate bands met and recorded a song. I mean, even in the video, the director hired a fake backing band to support Tyler and Perry. No one seems to have any idea, so you just have to say that.

They operated at a level above everything else. Once he showed the footage to Run himself at his New Jersey mansion, all sorts of memories flooded back for the rap legend about that fateful day, which ended up in the book. . I could have spent about 200 more pages on it. . . .
