It was in 1981 that he co-founded Run-D.M.C. with DJ Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell and Darryl "DMC" McDaniels. They were one of the first groups to highlight the relationship between MCs and DJs and they enjoyed their greatest popularity in the 1980's along with LL Cool J, The Beastie Boys and Public Enemy.

In 1983, he married to his first wife, Valerie Vaughn with whom he has three children named Angela, Vanessa and Joseph Jr. He decided to tie the knot for the second time with Justine Jones in 1994. A love liaison that once again resulted in the birth of three children, Danielle III, Russell II, and Victoria, but they lost Victoria because of a birth defect called omphalocele. Unlikely as it may seem, the Simmonses allowed MTV camera crews of Run's House to document baby Victoria's death. The intention behind the act was to show the world how they, as ministers, would handle such tragedy.
