" McDaniels, and Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell, the group is widely acknowledged as one of the most influential acts in the history of hip hop.

  • Larry had to go over to London to work with Whodini to have the freedom to make music again, because I wouldn’t make no fuckin’ music for Run-D.M.C. I loved “Freaks Come Out at Night,” “Five Minutes of Funk” and the other hits Larry made for Whodini—it was hip-hop for adult black people who hated rap—but that’s not what Run-D.M.C. was about. I remember I got so mad when we made “You Talk Too Much” for Run-D.M.C. because Larry snuck a bass line in.
