BMG Heritage will salute rap pioneers Run-DMC with the Sept. 10 release of the 18-track compilation "Run-DMC -- Greatest Hits." The single-disc "Greatest Hits" release includes both sides of Run-DMC's first single, 1983's "It's Like That"/"Sucker MC's," and also "Hard Times"/"Jam-Master Jay," the group's second single. Both were later included on the group's self-titled Profile Records debut.

The album also features the choicest cuts off the group's breakthrough second album, "King of Rock" and its follow-ups, "Raising Hell" and "Tougher Than Leather." The holiday novelty "Christmas in Hollis" is also included, but no songs from any of the group's post-'80s output are represented on "Greatest Hits." The release is the first rap title from Heritage, which was formed last fall to exploit BMG's catalog.

"Raising Hell" was the most successful of the group's albums, peaking at No. 3 on The Billboard 200 and having been certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America for 3 million copies shipped.

Run-DMC is currently on tour with "Walk This Way" partners Aerosmith. The trek, which hits Wantagh, N.Y., Wednesday (Aug. 28), is scheduled to run through a Nov. 14 date in Mountain View, Calif.
