Hip-hop legend and Run DMC co-founder Darryl “DMC” McDaniels recently announced the launch of his fan club, The City of DMC, and his newly redesigned personal web site, www.ME-DMC.com that are developed and managed by Paid Inc. celebrity services (OTCBB: PAYD).  Both officially kick-off today, on the heels of the March 14 release of “Checks Thugs and Rock ‘N’ Roll,” DMC’s first solo album - including an exclusive DVD disc -on RomenMpire Records/From Rags 2 Riches Records.

The documentary includes footage from the new video, “Just Like Me” featuring Sarah McLachlan as well as music clips from DMC’s forthcoming album.

They’ll also be the first to know about opportunities to interact with DMC and receive special deals for merchandise. 

“A lot of artist’s have ‘fans.’ I have ‘friends,” said Darryl McDaniels.  “I want my friends to have a place where they can access me, DMC, to see what I’m doing, hear what I’m saying and tell me what’s going on.
