The Hip Hop legends Run-DMC have been selected to receive a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammy Awards next month. Regardless of the fact the Queens rap trio never actually won a Grammy in their 80s heyday, the organisation claim this is a different honour altogether.

 

The award honours “performers who have made contributions of outstanding artistic significance to the field of recording“. Furthermore, President and CEO of the Recording Academy, Neil Portnow, said in a statement in regard to Run-DMC, “their exceptional accomplishments, contributions, and artistry will continue to influence and inspire generations to come“. The Grammy Awards will take place on February 15.

A recent graduate with a BA in History. However, my passion lies in spreading the good word of music. Now I am all about the future, not what has happened in the past. From indie to electronic to chillwave to rap to folk, I love to write about all the up-and-coming gems of music as well as the legendary bands which have developed my love for music. Although it makes putting my music library on shuffle quite an undesirable experience. Feel free to follow me on twitter for more music related posts.
