According to The Fader, legendary rap trio Run-DMC will be honored with a lifetime achievement award at the 2016 Grammys. In 1986 they were nominated for Best R&B Vocal Performance, largely because a category for rap hadn’t been created yet. Despite their musical contribution and influence over Hip Hop artists of today, this award will be the first Grammy for the pioneers of Hip Hop.
Congrats to Run DMC (Darryl McDaniel, Reverend Joseph “Run” Simmons, and the late Jason Mizell (Jam Master Jay)
