Run D.M.C. -- Prince Could Tell The Future (VIDEO)

EXCLUSIVE

Darryl McDaniels, D.M.C. of Run-D.M.C. swears Prince could do more than just sing, dance and play the guitar ... he could tell the future too.

Our photog caught up with the rapper at LAX Friday who says in the 80's the singer flat out told the group they'd make it to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ... more than 20 years before it actually happened.  

Check out the clip -- it's an awesome story -- and find out what song McDaniel says put Prince on the map in the hood.
