"We're not gonna work too hard to impress anybody; we just gonna put it out," D.M.C. says of the next record. "We gonna make it, put it out; if you like it, you like it. If you don't, you don't. But we gonna stay on the road, you know what I'm sayin'? It ain't a thing like we gonna put an album out, we gonna sell 20 million records, and we gonna take a break. No. 'Cause we feel we can tour with Run-D.M.C. forever.
"If we never put out another album again, we can work until we're 85, and that's really our goal: to represent hip-hop and rap longevity. To do what Sinatra did, to do what the Temptations are doin', to do what Michael Jackson is doin' -- to be somebody that was not just in hip-hop, but in the music industry for over 30 years."
"Those are the actual things that are fads. The eternal thing about hip-hop is the DJ, the MC, and the crowd."
Run-D.M.C. keeps pushing to earn respectability for hip-hop
