There's no other way to put it: Rev Run is one of the most iconic figures in entertainment. The front man of seminal hip-hop group Run-D.M.C., Rev has sold more than 230 million records worldwide and is widely credited for ushering rap music into mainstream culture. An inductee into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Run-D.M.C. was named the greatest hip-hop artist all-time by both MTV and VH1. Rolling Stone writes, “ [Rev] took hardcore hip-hop from an underground street sensation to a pop-culture phenomenon…It was [Rev] that introduced hats, gold chains, and untied sneakers to youth culture. In the process, [Rev] helped change the course of popular music, paving the way for rap’s second generation.” Rev has also starred in his own hit TV shows, penned best-selling books and is a sought-after speaker. Alongside DJ Ruckus, he’s brought his DJ skills to the Super Bowl, Cannes Film Festival, the Oscars, the Grammys and more. Rev is a legend – a legend that continues to be unstoppable.
When Ruckus was 14, he got turntables for his birthday. Two years later, he was headlining the biggest clubs in his native Miami. A year after that, he was behind the turntables at Diddy’s lavish birthday bash in Morocco. Since then, his meteoric rise has continued recently being described by GQ as “the most sought after DJ in the world.” His clientele includes a legion of loyal celebrity fans including Lenny Kravitz, Oprah Winfrey, Steven Spielberg, Kanye West, Russell Simmons, Jennifer Lopez, and Leonardo DiCaprio, all of whom hire Ruckus to spin at their private parties. Events for MTV, GQ, Disney, the NBA, Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, and UFC all fill his resume. A fixture at the hottest nightclubs across the country, Ruckus is also stitched firmly into the world of fashion glitterati, having been handpicked by Marc Jacobs as the face of his “Protect the Skin You’re In” campaign. Ruckus joined Run-DMC as a touring member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame band in 2012. Ruckus has been profiled in Rolling Stone, Vogue, Forbes, GQ, Billboard, Hollywood Reporter, Nylon, Men’s Fitness. He has been featured on MTV’s Cribs and appeared the hit film ATL and in Ron Howard’s Made in America documentary.
