There is no denying the incredible success of Straight Outta Compton, which leaves people wanting more stories of hip hop pioneers to be told on the big screen. Fans have suggested the story of 2Pac, Death Row Records and others to be told next. But what about a movie uncovering the story of Run-DMC?
Darryl “DMC” McDaniels was asked about the possibility of DMC, Rev Run, and Jam Master Jay’s career being depicted in theaters in which he stated:
Me personally, I wouldn’t want to do a Run-DMC movie…People always say, ‘Why D?’ Because you already got an N.W.A and Biggie movie. My Hip Hop is not doing what everybody else did.
The rapper, instead, revealed that he is working on a Broadway version of his life story as well as a comic book series. He has an independent publishing house, called Darryl Makes Comics, created along with Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez and Riggs Morales.
