New York City is also where hip-hop was born. Run DMC, pictured here, was one of the pioneering groups that brought hip-hop into the mainstream in the 1980s. The members of Run DMC -- Joseph "Run" Simmons, Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels and Jason "Jam-Master Jay" Mizell -- grew up in Hollis, Queens. (Michael Ochs Archives/Getty Images)
