Run-DMC’s black fedoras are key to what they represent. It’s a symbol of toughness and b-boy fashion, not that R&B/pop garbage other black artists were going for at the time.

Get DMC’s name right and don’t confuse him with this guy. D is a dope lyricist, Ronald puts smiles on kids' faces, totally different.

This is one of the very few times Run-DMC used profanity. Well, at this point. They got more comfortable with cursing later on………

Run-DMC was famous for being the first rap artists to fuse the street swagger of hip-hop with the aggression of hard rock. They were basically rock music for gangsters.

But at the end of the day, it’s still hip-hop.

On any given day, DMC refuses to be outshined.

Take this for example: D is the ace of the rotation of his baseball team. He has a wicked curveball but it seems to be taken the other way for a hit. Think again, because the infield makes that potential hit a triple play that retires the side. DMC is not impressed.

He would have wanted the guy to get a hit more than have his own teammates overshadow him with a triple play.

If DMC isn’t the king like he says, he’s still the most beloved.

In this particular song, DMC is the main rapper while Run provides some dope beatboxing, making “Hit It Run” acapella somewhat.

The 1985 single “King of Rock” emphasizes DMC’s point. But he’s not the just the king of rock. He rules hip-hop and he rules rhymes. Nobody beats D.

DMC feels fine, so he “deals” or issues fines to rappers who are disgracing the mic.

"I like AC/DC and ZZ Top / Bocephus, Beasties, and the Kin..." (Kid Rock – American Bad Ass) | accepted

When he says “Kings of Rock,” he’s talking about Run-DMC, not the Beatles.

"Strictly business" (Rakim – Lyrics of Fury) | pending

This song came out three years before this movie.

What’s odd is that Paid in Full was literally created within a week.

"Shake and bake" (E.P.M.D. – You Gots to Chill) | accepted

E-Double is about to do something totally awesome, and you don’t want to miss it.

"Poets are paranoid, DJ's D-stroyed" (Rakim – Lyrics of Fury) | pending

KRS-One often referred to himself as a poet. Do you think Rakim was taking a small jab at him?
