80s Hip-Hop music by Bugly Silver
The first hip hop artists wore flashy clothes like rock and disco acts of the time. They wore tight leather, chest-baring shirts, gloves and hats with rhinestones and spikes, leather boots.
Run DMC were a group from Hollis Queens "New York" founded in 1981 by Joseph "Run" Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels, and Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell. They are one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop culture.
More than any other hip-hop group, Run–D.M.C. are responsible for the sound and style of the hip-hop music. Musically, they moved hip hop and rap music away from the funk and disco sound of its beginnings, into a new sound. Their sound is responsible for changing rap music from dance and club music like "Rapper's Delight" and "The Breaks" to an aggressive, less danceable style.
