Took a Test to Become an MC

A few minutes ago, I got to meet an authentic legend.  Darryl McDaniels, 1/3 of rap pioneers Run DMC, was at the White House today for the President’s Father’s Day event, and I caught up to him afterwards, while he was giving another interview, which will air on MSNBC tomorrow night.

    Keep it Going!!
