Eminem inducted Run-DMC into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Saturday (April 4) in Cleveland, Ohio as Rev. Run and Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels looked on before taking the stage. “I remember being in ninth grade when Raising Hell came out,” he recalled, “Two years later, I still remember being in ninth grade when Tougher Than Leather came out. I had skipped school, if you can believe that, to go buy Tougher Than Leather on cassette the day it came out. As soon as I heard ‘Run’s House,’ man, it was pretty much a rap for me. Marshall Mathers became Eminem. It was the first time Run-DMC had changed my life, but it wouldn’t be the last. Two turntables and a microphone.” Unfortunately the video ends without comments from Run or DMC and nothing appears to have been posted yet at YouTube. Watch Em’s remarks below.
