Run-DMC rapper Darryl McDaniels isn't exactly bowing down to Jay Z or Lil' Wayne.

In a recent interview, Darryl complained about how "hip hop on radio sucks" before belil'ing Lil' Wayne and Hova's prowess. Here's what he said:

"Lil Wayne, Jay Z ain’t hot, it’s just they’re programmed so many times people are brainwashed."

Wow! Get out your calamine lotion and find a skin graft, because that was a serious BURN!

Darryl, the DMC of Run-DMC, continued his rant, lambasting hip hop's drug references:

You lucky lucky Philly cheese-steaks you!

We'll take multiple servings, with extra musical CHEDDAR please!

Jay-Z's Made in America Philadelphian music festival just got a major injection of magic-sauce with the additions of legedary hip-hop group Run DMC, and rap's current golden boy Drake!

Jay has also added Nicky Romero and Jill Scott, and has spanned genres to include Swedish House Mafia DJ Alesso, bluesy string-picker Gary Clark Jr, and Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell!

This redonkulous two-day fest featuring Pearl Jam and Jay himself, ignites Sept 1st… and there MAY be a minuscule chance that our PRESIDENT Barack Obama might rock out with his cockerel out.

Holy guacamole.

We pledge allegiance to The United States of Made in America, one nation under Jay-Z!

Street Artist Mr. Brainwash Getting Sued Over Run DMC Photograph

Filed under: Legal MattersEtc.

Ruh-roh.

Street artist Thierry Guetta, otherwise known as Mr. Brainwash, is being sued by photographer, Glen Friedman, for copyright infringement.

Friedman says that Mr. Brainwash improperly used his photograph of Run DMC, taken in Queens, NY in 1985, and is seeking unspecified damages.

Mr. Brainwash, whose work can be seen in the documentary Exit Through the Gift Shop along with the works of fellow street artist, Banksy, is being accused of using the photograph in several of his artwork without paying any licensing fees.

Friedman's attorney, Douglas Linde, has even gone so far as calling Mr. Brainwash a "blatant plagiarist."

Yikes.

A trial date is set for later this year.

This is a tough one. The artwork is mostly stencil - an actual photograph is not used in the art - but it looks like it still violates infringement laws.

Bummer.
