Directed by Kirk Fraser, the three-part documentary highlights the rise of Joseph “Rev Run” Simmons, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels and “Jam Master Jay” Mizell — three friends from Queens, New York, who went on to became one of the greatest rap groups of all time.
In the series, Rev Run and DMC get candid about everything from their early days in the group to finding superstardom and the loss of Jam Master Jay, who was gunned down in his recording studio in 2002. The murder trial against Jam Master Jay’s accused killers started this week — more than 20 years after his murder and nearly four years after the men were arrested.
The documentary also features appearances from Ice-T, LL Cool J, MC Lyte, Jermaine Dupri, Ice Cube, Questlove, Beastie Boys, Chuck D., Tom Morello, Doug E. Fresh, Big Daddy Kane, Ed Lover and more.
The series is executive produced by Rev Run, DMC, William H. Masterson III, Brian Hunt, Dan Goodman, Michael Lehman and Erik Blamoville, and produced by Believe Entertainment Group.
