The Life of Dad Show hosts, Tommy Riles and Art Eddy, bring on Life of Dad co-founder Ryan Hamilton to chat about the interview we had with a true legend in the music and entertainment industry, and the self-proclaimed “King of Rock”.
Hip-Hop legend. Artist. Musician. Innovator. Father. There are many facets that make up Darryl McDaniels or as we know him as “DMC” from the beloved Rap group RUN-DMC. For over 30 years he, Run, and Jay’s music has influenced so many people. From “Rock Box” to “Walk This Way” and countless other hits DMC help shape the music industry.
Not only making a name in the music and entertainment industry Darryl works on an even more important cause. It is to help foster kids. He is the co-founder of the nonprofit, Felix Organization. DMC has been invited to the White House by President Obama to address youth groups on responsibility and he’s appeared before Congress in support of adoptees and foster children. In my interview with DMC you will understand why President Obama sought out Darryl’s help.
Recently, Darryl’s long love for comic books has come to the forefront in the entertainment industry. Working alongside his partner and collaborator Edgardo Miranda-Rodriguez, “DMC #1”, the first full length graphic novel made its way to comic book shelves this past October. DMC received an impressive response when he debuted his book at the New York Comic Con.
We were honored to have the opportunity to talk with a true Rap legend about creating his own comic book, his influence in the world of Hip-Hop, helping out foster kids, and fatherhood.
