Run-DMC Debuts NFT Artwork Collection

Celebrating Jam Master Jay and the 35th anniversary of ‘Raising Hell.’

Run-DMC is marking their foray into the world of non-fungible tokens with their debut NFT artwork collection.

The upcoming drop will celebrate the 35th anniversary of their 1986 album Raising Hell and pay respects to the late Jam Master Jay. Minted by Peppermint, the collection will include 12 different variations of Reena Tolentino’s original Trailblazers painting and her 12ON12 Raising Hell vinyl record cover art, which is currently available in only 500 pieces.

“There are so many things that influence and inspire us. Music is one of them. It’s a never-ending process,” the group said in a previous statement. “We are happy to showcase where some of it comes from! It all starts and ends with vinyl! If it ain’t vinyl…Then it ain’t vinyl!”

In August 2020, two suspects were officially charged with the October 2002 murder of Jam Master Jay. One of the men, Karl Jordan Jr. — who was also previously charged with attempted murder for shooting Jam Master Jay’s nephew — was recently hit with additional drugs and weapons charges and could face five additional years in prison if convicted.

The NFT collection is available for purchase on Peppermint.
