SCRAPBOOK SATURDAYS: Run DMC ∩ Rolling Stone


Mama Noz recently hoisted a bucket of old magazines and hip hop ephemera on me that had previously been collecting dust in her garage. In the tradition of the THIMK and Press Rewind, this new weekly series will feature some choice images and articles, culled from that bucket and elsewhere.

from Here We Go 12″ (Profile, 1985)

And what better place to start than with Run DMC’s first Rolling Stone cover from 1986? Historic, as it was the first time a hip hop artist had appeared on the cover of the once prestigious publication. I had intended to scan and share the whole thing, but it turns out Rollingstone.com beat me to the punch with an official online transcription. Still, there are a few more photos that aren’t on their site after the jump. Sorry about the cropping issues, RS is much too big for my scanner.


“Joe ‘Run’ Simmons, at age ten.”


“Darryl ‘D’ McDaniels, age eighteen.”


“Jay ‘Jam Master Jay’ Mizell, age eleven.”

    Bullshit, DMC isn’t 18 in that photo. He does rock a solid pocket square, however.

    Can’t wait to see what other mags are in that bucket.

    Yeah, I meant to comment on that. It says 18 in the magazine but that must be a typo, unless he had some Gary Coleman shit going on.

    “Run, 22, who is careful to distance his group from Boy George and “homo-assed drug takers,” says, “Michael wants us to make a record with him, and we don’t really want to make a record with Michael. We really dig Barry White.” “
