Run's House was a hit reality show on MTV that premiered in 2005 and ran for six seasons. The show followed the life and times of Joseph Simmons, best known as "Rev Run," as he juggled his roles as a father, husband, rapper, and member of the legendary hip-hop group Run-DMC. Joseph Simmons was married to his high school sweetheart, Justine, and they had five children: Vanessa, Angela, Jojo, Diggy, and Russy. The show also featured appearances from Joseph's brothers, Russell and Danny Simmons.

Each episode of Run's House gave viewers a glimpse into the Simmons' family life and the challenges they faced as a close-knit but very public family. Joseph often used his role on the show to impart life lessons on his children, whether it was through candid conversations in the family's New Jersey home or while traveling the country for concerts and other events. Throughout the series, viewers watched as the children grew up and dealt with everything from teenage angst and high school drama to pursuing their own careers in fashion, music, and more.

One of the biggest storylines on Run's House was the evolution of Diggy Simmons as a rapper. Diggy was just 10 years old when the show premiered, but as the youngest son of Joseph Simmons, he was already showing a talent for music. Throughout the series, viewers watched as Diggy honed his skills and navigated the ups and downs of the music industry with the help of his family. By the end of the show's run, Diggy had released his first album and become a star in his own right.

Another important part of Run's House was the family's commitment to giving back to their community. Joseph Simmons was passionate about using his platform to help others, whether it was through his work with the Hip Hop Summit Action Network or his involvement in various charities and philanthropic causes. The show often highlighted the family's involvement in service projects and other ways they gave back, inspiring viewers to do the same.

Overall, Run's House was a heartwarming and entertaining look at a family that was both famous and relatable. Joseph Simmons and his family brought a unique perspective to the reality TV world, showing that even celebrities deal with the same everyday struggles as the rest of us. The show was a hit with audiences and earned rave reviews for its positive message and genuine portrayal of family life. While Run's House may have ended in 2009, it remains a beloved classic of the reality TV genre.
