Born in Harlem, New York, in 1964, Darryl McDaniels is a founding member of legendary hip hop group Run-D.M.C. He attended St. John's University and learned how to DJ in his parents' basement, taking the stage name "Grandmaster Get High" in the late '70s. Later, he took up rapping and changed his name to "Easy D" before becoming "DMcD" then "D.M.C." in 1981. He and his friends, Joseph "Run" Simmons and Jam-Master Jay, released their self-titled debut in 1984. Their third album, "Raising Hell", became their best commercial success, reaching the sixth spot on the Billboard 200 and topping the hip-hop charts. D.M.C. began drinking during this time, with several arrests stemming from alcohol abuse. In the late '90s, he fell into a depression, fueling his addiction to prescription drugs and alcohol. Soon after, he was diagnosed with a vocal disorder. He began having creative disputes with his bandmates and only played a small role on the "Crown Royal" album. As D.MC. fell deeper into his depression, he credits Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" with saving his life. After hearing the song, he began researching his life for an autobiography and discovered he was adopted. The search for his birth mother was a large part of his 2001 autobiography, "King of Rock: Respect, Responsibility, and My Life with Run-DMC", and was featured on the VH1 documentary "DMC: My Adoption Journey" in 2006. That year, his debut solo album, "Checks Thugs and Rock N Roll", released. He has been featured on several video games, including "Guitar Hero: Aerosmith" and "The Warriors". D.M.C. is active with several charities and created a camp for foster children. He received the Angels in Adoption Award from Congress in 2006 for his work with kids.
