Green Label Sound’s 15 of the Best Hip-Hop Logos Ever (Food for Thought)
Green Label Sounds has put together one of the more interesting lists in a while: 15 of the Best Hip-Hop Logos ever. Check out what they had to say about Run-D.M.C.’s iconic logo below and read the full list here.
From Green Label Sound:
“Though Run DMC used a few different variations and typefaces on their releases, their stacked logo created by an in-house designer at Island named Stephanie Nash remains their visual identity. From the classic red, white, and black colorway to the simple choice of the font Franklin Gothic accented by the bars, the logo is not only one of hip-hop’s most recognizable, but it also influenced several hardcore bands, including Bold and Chain of Strength. Run DMC’s logo has been knocked off a myriad of times, appearing on bootleg Obama T-shirts and even Mos Def had a rip-off of it, before he adopted the name Yasiin Bey.”
