Hip-Hop Pioneer Darryl "DMC" McDaniels Goes On The Search Of His Life In VH1�s "DMC: My Adoption Journey"

Documentary First In �VH1 Rock Docs� Franchise, Debuts On Saturday, February 25 at 9PM

This VH1 Rock Doc Coincides With The Release Of DMC�s First Solo Album Checks Thugs And Rock �N Roll On March 14

NEW YORK, NY, February 23, 2006 - Five years ago at the age of 35 hip-hop pioneer and co-founder of the multi-platinum legendary group Run-DMC, Darryl �DMC� McDaniels made a startling discovery: he was adopted. Suddenly everything he thought he knew about himself changed.

This revelation occurred after the death of Jam Master Jay and while DMC was going through a deep depression. He began to question his purpose and place in life. DMC invited VH1 on his journey to track down this other family he never knew was out there. Premiering Saturday, February 25 at 9PM, �DMC: MY ADOPTION JOURNEY� documents that search as the first special from the �VH1 Rock Docs� franchise.

Born on May 31, 1964, DMC grew up in a loving household with his mother, father and older brother. He was raised in the middle class neighborhood of Hollis, Queens in New York City amidst the burgeoning hip-hop scene. It was there that he formed Run-DMC and forever changed the face of music.

As DMC embarked on this courageous search for his birth mother he had little information to go on. Given only what might be his biological mother�s name DMC sought help in many places. He visited various government agencies and the hospital where he was born. He then turned to The New York Foundling, an organization in New York that specializes in child welfare and family services. With their guidance, he worked with Pam Slaton, an adoption search specialist and also attended Adoption Anonymous meetings for support.

The four month search created a roller coaster of emotions as DMC was faced with daily disappointments mixed with hope. All the while, his adoptive family struggled to understand his need to search for his roots. The end result provided closure for DMC and an important piece of clarity on life that he was looking for.
