Go Away With ... Rev Run: Back in the day, Joseph Simmons was best known to music fans as DJ Run, one of the founding members of Run-D.M.C. Now 49 and a practicing minister, Simmons is familiar to a new generation of fans as Rev Run, the television personality. My column with Rev Run is archived here as well: http://www.jaehakim.com/travel/go-away-with/go-away-with-rev-run/
Stop running to those who ignore you and start running to those who adore you. - Joseph Simmons
The Simmons family are featured in the May edition of Ebony magazine. Although every family member of Run’s House is photographed looking his or her best, special emphasis is placed on Justine Simmons, Rev Run Simmons’ current wife, and Valerie Vaughn, Run’s first wife, as they co-parent the clan together. Pictured are Vanessa (28), Angela (24), Joseph Jr. “JoJo” (22), Daniel “Diggy” (17) , Russell “Russy” (15), Miley Simmons(4), Valerie Vaughn, and Justine Simmons.
The Roaring Twenties-themed event—hosted by Rush Philanthropic Arts Foundation’s founders Russell Simmons, Danny Simmons and Joseph Simmons—raised funds to support arts programming for inner city youth. Pictured above, LuAnn de Lesseps, Simon de Pury.
