I'm the King of Rock, there is none higher!
My Adidas walk coliseum floors!
Run-D.M.C.'s surviving members will be reuniting later this year for a one-off performance at a festival in Austin, Texas. Amazeballs!
The pioneering rap group broke up in 2002 following the murder of longtime member Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell, but they are coming back together for the Fun Fun Fun Fest in November.
A portion of proceeds from the festival will be handed to the Jam Master Jay Foundation for Music, which was set up in JMJ's memory after he died so tragically.
The band will perform at the 7th annual festival which takes place Nov. 2-4 in Austin, Texas. It's their first gig since disbanding in 2002. Surviving members Joseph "Run" Simmons and Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels will headline the main stage.
The promoters said, "In honor of Jay's life, FFF festival promoters are working with the band to donate a portion of proceeds to his foundation the JMJ Foundation for Music which is dedicated to providing access to the arts, regardless of socio-economic status, for children and young adults."
