Today is the day that Jam Master Jay was gifted to the world.
Unfortunately, he is no longer with us, but we celebrate in his absence. For all that he did for hip-hop, for how he has inspired countless DJs, and for how he could rock a party.
Here is a video showing his skills on the turntables, right alongside another legend, Grand Master Flash.
And yesterday was National DJ Day.
It’s fitting that these two days follow each other. It’s the 1,2 Punch!
Here is some more of Jam Master Jay kicking off a concert the way a DJ should!
I was fortunate enough to see Run-DMC live once and it was amazing. This was before I had any way to recording the performance though. Wish I could relive it again.
Rest in Peace, JMJ!
