Well after the violence that broke out at the Long Beach Arena during the infamous Raising Hell show on August 17th, 1986, the mainstream media made a general practice of portraying hip-hop concerts as dangerous events . Here, in this 1987 CBS TV interview from around the time of their “Together Forever” tour, Run-DMC and the Beastie Boys are questioned about the LBC incident and forced to defend rap’s reputation. ADDED BONUS: an impromptu performance of “My Adidas” and Mike D’s demonstration of the Jerry Lewis dance.
