Eminem will be the one to induct Run DMC into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on April 4th. The Queens’s collective who brought Hip-Hop to the airwaves with tracks like My Adidas and Walk this Way, Peter Piper and It’s Like That are only the second Hip-Hop act to be inducted into the Hall, the first was Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five back in 2007. Run DMC will join the likes of Blondie, Prince, Aerosmith and Al Green in the notorious group of musicians recognized for their contribution to music.
Rev Run and Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels allegedly asked for the Detroit rapper to officially induct them into the Hall of Fame next month in Cleveland. Eminem will join Jimmy Paige and Ronnie Wood in presenting on the night.
