DMC On Notorious B.I.G.'s My Downfall (Video)

"When Biggie called for me to go put this hook on the record, I was souped," Run-DMC's Darryl McDaniels recalled in the MTV offices Monday. "I got a call from Diddy, and Puff was like, 'Yo, D, we wanna make that the chorus.' "

The hook, originally snatched from the Run-DMC record "Together Forever," saw D back in the recording booth where he and partner Rev Run made countless smash records. "But that's not all/ MCs have the gall/ To pray and pray for my downfall," D spewed on the track's chorus.

"My Downfall" would go on to be one of the defining moments on Life After Death. B.I.G.'s lyrics spoke of a man battling turmoil among his rap peers, and DMC, no stranger to fame and misfortune, gladly accepted the opportunity to appear on the track.
