Rev Runs Around the World airs this Wednesday at 10pm on the Travel Channel.

It was a true pleasure to have them both in-studio. Run explained his thought process after hitting such heights with his rap career, and why he chose to dedicate himself to God and his family — thus bringing the success of Run’s House.

But since we had such a rap king in our presence, we had to dig deeper. What was his top memory of his career? Top Hip Hop movie? And of course his top 5 favorite rappers TODAY! Great answers.

And c’mon we couldn’t let them leave without dropping bars!! This time, Justine took the lead — don’t forget she was in a rap group of her own, Fly Five. Watch above.
