RIP Jam Master Jay (1965-2002)
Rest in peace to Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell. Seven years later and his untimely death still stings.
“Peter Piper” is incredible, “Jam Master Jay” is a Run-DMC classic (ask Nas). But my favorite song from the Hollis trio that features Jam Master Jay cutting and scratching (Bob James “Nautilus”) with finesse is “Beats to the Rhyme.” Makes Tougher Than Leather almost watchable.
Below, trailer for the 2 Turntables And A Microphone documentary about JMJ due out soon.
