Speaking On The State Of Hip-Hop, Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels Raw & Uncensored (Video)

Okay. Run DMC’s Darryl McDaniels just went the hell off! Rightfully so. Hip-Hop is definitely different today, but we had our bullsh!t going on back then, too. I do agree, wholeheartedly, that whatever was wrong then or now… was WRONG! Nonsense, violence, not a good policy (word to Heavy D and RIP).

Hip-Hop is our Nation, our Community and Culture. We ought to act accordingly. Listen to DMC.

Darryl ‘DMC’ McDaniels Declares That Having Mental Health Problems Is Not Shameful (Video)

My brother, BoneBreaker Jones, and I are constantly talking about this. When you have a health problem, you should get help! Mental health is health, and your health is you wealth. Don’t lose your HEALTH! Mental health problems affect everyone, even the mighty King Of Rock, the Devastating Mic Controller, Darryl McDaniels aka DMC of Run DMC.

No shame. If you need help, admit it and get it! Don’t know where/how? Just start talking and asking people you care about. Ask them to help you get to the right professional. But don’t just ignore the situations you are going through like it’s all good #TalkToSomebody

Throwback: Run-DMC x Jam Master Jay [Live] (Video)

I remember reading in some Public Enemy album liner notes that when the group was looking for a DJ (who would eventually be Terminator X), they were looking for a ‘Jam Master Jay level’ deejay. WHAT?! You know how all powdered soft drinks are called Kool-Aid, or how all in-line skates are called RollerBlades? Jam Master Jay was like that… the industry standard!

Watch JMJ start the show like a pro, then watch Run-DMC come shut sh!t down!! Awesome jewel from back in the day (September 1984). Hip-Hop forever!!

Jam Master Jay’s son ‘TJ Mizell’ Spins On NYC’s ‘J’ Train (Video)

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.

DJ Jazzy Jeff x Señor Kaos – “Peter Piper” (Jam Master Jay Tribute)

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.
