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.
Run-D.M.C. – “Here We Go (Live At The Funhouse)“
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.”
