Rev. Run Net Worth 2020, Bio, Wiki, Height, Weight, Awards and Instagram
Rev. Run Net Worth 2020 – Handsome Rev. Run is a rapper, producer and disc jockey who hails from America. He gained a lot of popularity and attention as a founder of popular hip-hop group Run–D.M.C.
Simmons was born Joseph Ward Simmons, the youngest of three boys to Evelyn and Daniel Simmons, on the 14th of November 1964 in the Queens Borough of New York.
From a very young age, Simmons was influenced by the growing hip-hop music genre in New York which his older brothers, Danny and Russell, were in some way or another also influenced by.
At around the age of 14, Simmons began working as a disc jockey for one of hip hop’s early pioneers, Kurtis Blow, who his brother Russell was managing. His skills on the turntable earned him the nickname DJ Run because he was known for cutting between two turntables.
Simmons soon began engaging Blow in rap battles before he went on to form the hip-hop group called The Force. The Force did not exist for long as Joseph Simmons joined forces with his high school friend, Darryl McDaniels (aka DMC) to form Run-DMC.
The duo was later joined by another high school friend of theirs, Jason William Mizell (aka Jam Master Jay).
Run-DMC went on to sign a record deal with Profile Records and released their first single titled “It’s like that/Sucker MCs” in 1983. The song’s success propelled the group to release their self-titled debut album a year later which featured hit songs like “Rock Box”, “Hard Times”, and “Jam-Master Jay”.
In 1985, Simmons and his crew released King of Rock to critical acclaim. A year later, they put out the platinum-selling Rick Rubin produced Raising Hell album which cemented their legacy as the kick starters of the golden age of hip-hop as they were one of the first artists from the genre to receive a Grammy Award nomination.
The group went on to release four more albums; Tougher than Leather (1988), Back From Hell (1990), Down with the King (1993), and Crown Royal (2001) before Jam Master Jay was killed in his studio in New York in 2002.
His death hit Simmons hard and he decided to leave music as he was ordained a Pentecostal minister under the name Reverend Run. In 2005, however, Simmons returned to the music scene to release his first and only solo album titled Distortion.
During this time, he also began appearing on the reality show Run’s House which featured him and his family.
