Darryl “DMC” McDaniels is one of the most iconic hip-hop artists of all time. One-third of the legendary trio Run DMC, he played a pivotal role in thrusting hip-hop into the mainstream and changing the course of popular music forever. Despite selling over 30 million albums and blazing a trail for future rap groups, DMC found himself late in his career sinking into a deep depression. Faced with the reality that he was literally losing his voice, he fell into a downward spiral of drinking and contemplating suicide.It was music and comics that gave him a new purpose. Join him on his journey of self-discovery in this soul-stirring episode of Impact Theory with Tom Bilyeu.

    Wow! I just finished listening to this episode and I am blown away. I didn’t really know who Darryl McDaniels was, although I do have a vague memory of Run-DMC. Also, I couldn’t care less about comics or Sara MacLaughlin. But this man’s message, presence, energy and message resonated with me BIG TIME! Thank you!!
