As the Run in Run-D.M.C., Joey Simmons helped develop the sound that became hip-hop. They won Soul Train Music Awards, and their role in hip-hop's history brought them recognition from VH1, Rolling Stone, and millions of fans.

Reverend Run tells the story of the hip-hop musician and minister. His star quickly rose, and almost as quickly fell. He abused drugs, turned away from his family, and got caught up in the bling that sometimes goes along with success. But then Run decided to take a different path and became a minister-although he still sings.

Readers will also learn about Run the businessman, who uses some of his company's profits to help others. Reverend Run profiles the star's work with the Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation and Hip-Hop Action Summit Network. Discover Run the music legend, the philanthropist, and the man!
