The hip-hop artist known as Rev Run was born Joseph Ward Simmons in 1964 in Queens, New York. Before he became famous as one of the founding members of Run-D.M.C., Rev Run served as lead vocalist for the group The Force, which performed in the late 1970’s and early 1980’s. After teaming up with friends DJ Jason “Jam-Master Jay” and Darryl “DMC” McDaniels to form Run D.M.C. in 1981, Rev Run became a part of one of the earliest and most successful hip-hop groups to enjoy mainstream success in the United States.
With Run D.M.C., Rev Run became one of the first hip-hop artists to receive a Grammy nomination and have records reach the platinum and multi-platinum levels. The group was also the first hip-hop group to appear on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, eventually establishing themselves as the “Greatest Hip Hop Group of All Time” by a number of media outlets, including VH1 and MTV.
Following the end of Run D.M.C., with the unfortunate passing of Jam-Master Jay in 2002, Rev Run continued to perform and record as a solo artist, releasing his first album, Distortion, in 2005. The album featured the single “Mind on the Road” and was received with significant acclaim, but Rev Run achieved even greater popularity when in that same year he and his family became the focus of the MTV reality series Run’s House. The successful series ran until 2009.
Today, Rev Run continues to perform and record, and collaborate with other artists on a variety of projects. He also continues to serve as a preacher, having been ordained in his earlier years. He recently served as a special guest for the Fellowship Church of Texas.
