    Run-D.M.C. will be honored with a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Grammys.

    Run-D.M.C. may have been an important part of Grammy history, however they’ve never actually received one of the prestigious awards, until now. The seminal rap group was first nominated in 1986 under the category of Best R&B Vocal Performance– simply because there were no rap-designated categories at the time.

    At the upcoming 58th Annual Grammy Awards, the group will be presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Neil Portnow, President/CEO of The Recording Academy, released a statement saying, “Each year, The Academy has the distinct privilege of honoring those who have greatly contributed to our industry and cultural heritage, and this year we have a gifted and brilliant group of honorees. Their exceptional accomplishments, contributions, and artistry will continue to influence and inspire generations to come.”

    Honorary awards will also be given to  Celia Cruz, Earth Wind & Fire, John Cage, Ruth Brown, Jefferson Airplane, Herbie Hancock, and Linda Ronstadt.

    Tune into the Grammys on February 15th at 8 PM EST.

    I wish that Ruth Brown and Celia Cruz could have received this honor when they were alive.

    Get it, Run-D.M.C.!

    It’s a shame they never won a Grammy.  SMH!

    The real question is whether this will be presented on air and if so, who will present?
