L TO R: Trent Richardson, LaMarr Woodley, Marshawn Lynch as Run DMC. Photographer: Matthias Clamer, Los Angeles 1/19/13
The Run aspect of the accompanying photo we get. Marshawn Lynch did rush for a career-high 1,590 yards for the Seahawks in the just-concluded 2012 season to finish third in the NFL.
But then Lynch also is a student of the game, as well as a connoisseur of old-school rap and hip-hop.
So for ESPN The Magazine’s first-ever music issue, they had Lynch pose with Browns’ running back Trent Richardson and Steelers’ linebacker LaMarr Woodley to recreate Run DMC’s “Ultimate Run DMC” (that’s Lynch on the right).
Other athletes also are featured in the issue, which hits newsstands on Friday, as LeBron James, Michael Phelps, Cam Newton, Jimmie Johnson, Ryan Lochte, Alex Morgan and Josh Freeman are among those who recreate iconic album covers.
