I have now found out what this font is, it's FRINT HEAVY, but a free alternative is FRANKLIN GOTHIC HEAVY. Hope this helps!

Arial Black

Actually, this is incorrect. Your reference logo is not the original, it's a recreation someone who is not detail-oriented made. If you look up run DMC images you can see clearly that the letterform of the R itself is drastically different in original source material as compared to the vector file you linked.

Noticed that R, anyways it would be nice if you came up with a link to the correct Logo, there are quite a few versions around.
In fact RUN DMC themselves are not really sure about what font they like to use on their album covers: http://bit.ly/24pGW1O
Secondly a suggestion what font it would be in your opinion would also answer the question a bit further.

I created this do it yourself Run DMC kit. It contains a bunch of SVG files as well as outlined font png files for use in many craft maker machines and projects. Mainly the cricut and silhouette machines. It's like a build your own RUN DMC logo kit.
Suggested font: RUN ET-C
