Rev Run had a reality show in the early 2000s focused on his family, his faith, his relationships, and his world in general. This was the prime time for moderately known celebrities known for one thing to become famous to a whole new generation for an entirely different thing.
Thousands of hip hop fans knew Run for decades as a rapper, a producer, a godfather of a genre! And suddenly he’s better known for texting motivational quotes to his friends and family from a bubble bath while his daughters launch a shoe line and take on modeling.
A generation who knew him from the streets now see him in his mansion.
