We posted a li’l something a li’l while ago featuring TJ Mizell doing his thing on here. Now, he’s teaming with DJ Scratch for a “Jam Master Jay Tribute.” Who better qualified to speak on it with their hands, especially with TJ being the son of JMJ (who would now be 49 years old, RIP).
Among the things that might fill your heart with joy on a cold morning. Think of hopping the train on a typical NYC day… getting into the rail car that just so happens to be being rocked by TJ Mizell, son of the legendary Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell (of Run DMC fame). Yooo! TJ does a run of Jigga joints – including a Trap remix of “Tom Ford” (Benzi Remix) and “Show Me What You Got” (DJ Green Lantern Remix).
Keeping it old school, the man powers his equipment using a car battery (sorry, no streetlamp poles on the train)! Great vid.
Yesterday, October 30th, marked the 13 year anniversary of the passing of the legendary Jam Master Jay of Run DMC. The people at FUSE TV caught up with iconic turntablist DJ Scratch speak upon the early days of touring with Public Enemy & Run DMC while developing a friendship with Jam Master Jay.
Just a few days ago on January 21st we would have celebrated the 47th birthday of the legendary Jam Master Jay of Run DMC. Unfortunately the world is unable to celebrate his contributions to hip hop & DJ culture with him in the physical form due to his untimely death, but that doesn’t stop many people like DJ Jazzy Jeff & Señor Kaos from honoring him with this tribute track that I believe was first premiered on DJ Mick Boogie’s Run DMC tribute mixtape.
