RunDMCRD

Songs recorded by The Sugarhill Gang and Run-D.M.C. have been recently named as inductees into the Grammy Hall Of Fame.  The Sugarhill Gang’s “Rapper’s Delight” is the first rap recording to grab worldwide attention and success.  Run-D.M.C and Aerosmith’s Top 5 hit “Walk This Way” used MTV and mainstream radio to fuse Rap and Rock.  iphone March Shots 377

These legends along with recordings by James Brown, Sam Cooke, Miles Davis and Gil Scott-Heron lead the way for the Grammy Museum’s class of 2014.  All eligible records must be a minimum of 25 years old and “exhibit qualitative or historical significance.”

President and CEO of The Recording Academy Neil Portnow said, Memorable and inspiring, these recordings are proudly added to our growing catalog – knowing that they have become a part of our musical, social, and cultural history.”  Congratulations to all of these great artists.
