Run DMC's DMC visited Westwood to talk about all things life and drop an exclusive freestyle live on air. 

The 'It's Tricky' rapper opened up on what life's been like since finding out that he was adopted, which he wasn't told until he was 35-years-old. 

He explained to Westwood that he met his birth mum and asked her why she decided to give him up. 

"To give me a chance," DMC was told. "He gave me one hell of a chance, cause now i'm sitting with Westwood in the UK, travelling the world" he said. 

Now he is taking his life story, that has never been heard before, to theatre.

"I'm getting ready to put my life story on broadway. Not the DMC story cause you can Wikipedia me for that, the DD story, the little boy that became DMC."
