United States of America

So, in the previous post with Kurtis Blow rappin bout Christmas, we mentioned Run DMC. Well…here’s their Xmas take 7 years later.  Look how far rap came. Keep your eye out for…

  1. Major production value. The powers that be–including Russell Simmons’ brother, Run (the “Run” in Run-DMC)–quickly realized the commercial power of rap in ’79.  8 years is a long time for a business.
  2. This shit’s funny.
  3. Even Run DMC was going global: check out Iman Zumbal from Lagos, Nigeria in the opening Santa scene
