Today (May 17) begins National Prevention Week, a seven-day annual event produced by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). Ambrosiaforheads presents an anti-drug PSA’s aired back in 1987  from the legendary RUN DMC. The PSA, kicking things off in style (and with a some shell-toe Adidas) comes from iconic Queens, New York trio, Run-DMC. At the time, Run, DMC, and Jam Master Jay were promoting their would-be triple platinum third album, Raising Hell. Within the height of the crack epidemic, the Hip-Hop superstars knew that “it’s tricky” to just say no, so they told their fans to “walk this way,” and avoid drugs at all costs. Run and DMC kick some quintessential freestyle bars to the youth, while the late J.M.J. reveals that even though you may be around some things, you don’t need to be in those things. check it on ambrosiaforheads.
