Six years ago at the age of 35, hip-hop pioneer and co-founder of the multi-platinum legendary group Run-D.M.C, 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 a documentary film crew on his journey to track down this other family he never knew was out there. DMC: My Adoption Journey documented that search. As DMC embarked on this courageous quest 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. 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.
