Over 11 years ago the world lost one of the greatest DJ’s to ever be behind a pair of turntables. The iconic DJ from

Run DMC

showed the music world that the man behind the one’s and two’s is more than just a jukebox, but better yet the backbone of hip-hop groups everywhere. Beyond his superstardom,

Jam Master Jay (Jason Mizell)

was known for his humble demeanor, giving spirit, and his all around kindness. It is rare in the world of entertainment that we come across a man whose heart is bigger than his ego, and with Jay that was always the case. We are left today with Jam Master Jay’s legacy, and to honor his birthday (January 21st), the legendary

DJ Scratch

and

TJ Mizell

(JMJ’s son) have come together to pay respect to a true legend. The tag team set is performed in

Hollis, Queens

, in front of the Jam Master Jay Memorial, where RUN DMC and many other hip-hop superstars once roamed as teenagers. As these two DJs pay homage to a great, let us all remember what Jason Mizell brought to the world of music.
