Rev. Run (real name Joseph Ward Simmons ) continues to build his TV empire. The 50-year-old celebrity, who is one of the founding members of Run DMC, has landed a new show on the Travel Channel.  Rev Runs Around the World features Rev Run, a world-famous rapper (Run DMC), social media maven (4 million Twitter followers), style icon (Adidas) and television star (Rev Run’s Renovation, Rev Run’s Sunday Suppers and Run’s House). After spending years traveling the world with band-mates and friends, Rev Run is embarking on his next travel adventure — but this time, it’s with his wife, Justine, and their not-yet-out-of-the-house kids, Russy and Miley.
