Kings of Rhyme

Run-D.M.C. keeps pushing to earn respectability for hip-hop

"We're not gonna work too hard to impress anybody, we just gonna put it out," D.M.C. says of the next record. "We gonna make it, put it out; if you like it, you like it, if you don't, you don't; but we gonna stay on the road, you know what I'm sayin'? It ain't a thing like we gonna put an album out, we gonna sell 20 million records, and we gonna take a break. No. 'Cause we feel we can tour with Run-D.M.C. forever.

"If we never put out another album again, we can work until we're 85, and that's really our goal, to represent hip-hop and rap longevity. To do what Sinatra did, to do what the Temptations are doin', to do what Michael Jackson is doin'--to be somebody that was not just in hip-hop, but in the music industry for over 30 years."

Run-D.M.C. is scheduled to perform as part of the Freak Show on Saturday, October 31, at Celebrity Theatre, with Phunk Junkeez, the Pharcyde, Bombshelter DJs, and Cousins of the Wize. Showtime is 7 p.m.
