NY Daily News: Run-DMC’s rapper Darryl McDaniels launches new comic book line

dmc28n-5-web

The newly minted comic company, Darryl Makes Comics, is ready to debut its first novel, ‘DMC’ at New York Comic Con in October. Darryl McDaniels portrays himself as a superhero instead of a rapper in the graphic novels.

Rapper Darryl McDaniels of Run-DMC fame may be known for crushing “Sucker MCs” — but he’s unmasking himself as a comic book nerd.

Selling 25 million records is impressive enough, but McDaniels is now living out a childhood fantasy at age 50 with the launch of his own line of comic books.

DMC #1 Available early at NYC Comic Con October 2014

STK649890[5]

Darryl “DMC” McDaniels  grew up reading comics and developed a passion for them. In his first graphic novel, it’s 1985 in New York City and graffiti covers subway cars as b-boys break and spin in playgrounds and on street corners. Drugs and crime rule the streets. The city’s brand new guardian angels wear spandex and capes, wielding their gadgets and their superpowers to “clean up” The City for the benefit of a select few. The rest whisper a different name: DMC, who dons his tracksuit and Adidas sneakers to defend the city’s marginalized citizens against super villain and super hero alike.

DMC #1 will be available early at New York Comic Con October 2014

DJ Scratch Remembers Jay

Jam Master Jay Remembered by Protégé DJ Scratch
The longtime EPMD DJ shares stories of Run-D.M.C. DJ’s warmth and generosity

On this day in 2002, legendary Run-D.M.C. DJ Jam Master Jay was fatally shot inside a recording studio in Jamaica, Queens. While no suspects in the murder have been brought to justice, Jam Master Jay remains a towering and influential figure in hip hop.

The producer/DJ was known for his magnanimous spirit, and few got to see that more than DJ Scratch. Before his decades-long run with pioneering hip hop group EPMD, Scratch toured with Run-D.M.C. in 1988 on the Run’s House tour.

In the video above, the DJ recalls Jam Master Jay’s generosity upon finding out Scratch had no hotel and ate and showered at each venue. “When he found out I had no hotel and a baby on the way, he would always get double beds so I could sleep and he would let me call him every day on his hotel phone to see if my girl had the baby.”

Scratch also shows us his shrine to the DJ, complete with Jay’s trademark Adidas sneakers, hat and gold rope chain, underneath EPMD’s various gold and platinum records.

DMC Helps Kids Dream

DMC helps sow a Garden of Dreams for kids

Cause Celeb highlights a celebrity’s work on behalf of a specific cause. This week, we speak with hip-hop star Darryl McDaniels, better known as DMC of Run-DMC, about his involvement with the Garden of Dreams Foundation.

Q: What was so appealing about Garden of Dreams that made you want to join the board??

DMC: The Garden of Dreams is fantastic at giving kids, who this world considers underprivileged, opportunities to become the people that they were put here to be in the first place. Garden of Dreams don’t look at these children as underprivileged, who need special treatment; they look at these kids as kids of purpose and destiny. They give kids chances to overcome their obstacles, regardless of their situation, whether it’s foster care, or homelessness, or education and physical disabilities.

Q: What inspired you to do charity work with children?

DMC: Well, after doing everything that I did with Run DMC, having a life that I had, I found out at the age of 35 that I was adopted.  It was a big shock to me, didn’t know my whole life, and then I found out that I was a foster kid. So I was one of those kids, and I looked at what was important about my life; (it) isn’t the fact that I’m DMC of Run DMC, that’s easy. I will always be the king of rock, one of the greatest rappers ever. The important thing about my existence is: people took time out of their lives to give me a chance to be what I was put here to be.  You know, my mother and father decided to adopt me out of foster care, and send me to school, and discipline me, and educate me, and teach me; that’s all these kids need. So it made me realize that with the children of the world, flesh and blood has nothing to do with being brothers, sisters, mothers and fathers to every child in every city, in every ghetto, in every orphanage, in every group home.
I am one of those kids, and I represent what happens when you allow and support an organization like Garden of Dreams to make a kid’s dreams come true.

Q: So why do you think people should support this cause over others?

DMC: Because when you look at these children of the world, regardless of their situation, whether it be poverty, homelessness, you know, foster care, kids in group homes, incarceration, a lack of the sufficient educational mediums and facilities, these children are the next leaders, and people that will be running this world. These kids are the next you and me, the next journalists, the next entertainers, the next teachers, politicians, lawyers, scientists, pilots, astronauts, and the list goes on.
The most valuable resource that this Earth has is educating, nurturing and putting time and energy into our growing children, regardless of their relationships to us and their situations. All of those people have a habit of having their own children and walking around the world and seeing kids in bad situations and they go, “I ain’t got nothing to worry about, those ain’t my kids.”
No, every child that is born into this world is our children and it’s our responsibility as, not only the great nation of America, but globally, to give these children every chance that they deserve, every opportunity no matter what it is. That’s why they should support the Garden of Dreams, ‘cuz these kids are us.

Q: What will be your duties as a member of the board?

DMC: I’m basically the, I ain’t going to say ambassador, the guy who is able to navigate the delicate line between politics, religion, legal laws, what I am able to do, because I represent hip-hop, I come from the music background, and music is a universal language. So with me, I am able to go and talk and relate to everybody, everywhere, globally, with a 6-year-old kid that likes my music, or the 65-year-old person that likes “Walk This Way.” I am kind of the ambassador or the spokesman, or the representative … the living, breathing proof of what Garden of Dreams does.  Garden of Dreams basically creates little DMCs and DMCettes (laughs).

Q: Do you have any additional comments, anything else you would like to say?

DMC: Overall, Garden of Dreams represents a movement, as opposed to just being another charity. Garden of Dreams represents an initiative.  The one thing that I really like about Garden of Dreams is that they’re not the type of organization that will just say, “OK, let’s go give out some computers to the kids,” do it, get publicity on it, and never see the kids that they touched again. This is why I love to be on the board, because when they have contact with a certain kid or a certain charity, or a certain organization, they continue to have impressions made upon those individuals. We see these kids throughout the year, we don’t just come to the hood and give out turkeys on Thanksgiving and the kids gotta wait another whole year to see us. That’s why this organization is having success, because they continuously, they consistently (are) involved in the lives of each individual child they touch. That’s when you have change.

You just can’t come and say, “I’m just gonna give out some coats on Christmas” and the kids get all happy and they never see us again. That’s how we’re making a difference, because we stay involved in the lives of these kids, because they need to understand that OK, you can’t be with your birth mother and your birth-grandfather, you can’t be with your blood family, but you will never be without family again.
