There is none higher. RUN DMC, founded in 1983 by Joseph Simmons, Darryl McDaniels, and Jason Mizell, was one of the most influential acts in the history of hip-hop culture. They were the first in their genre to be nominated for a Grammy, have their video aired on MTV, and for many, the first hip-hop group they ever heard or saw. Their legacy is unparalleled and influence still seen and heard today. Joseph Simmons, stage name DJ RUN, was one of two leading vocalists for the trio.

The Lucie Kaas Kokeshi universe celebrates pioneers, icons, and trailblazers to remind us of who we are and where we are going. Some modern versions have small messages within, but in Lucie Kaas's rendition, the Kokeshi Figures are the message.
