Damn, That DJ Made My Day

Jam Master Jay, 1965-2002

Would there be a Linkin Park or even a Ludacris if it wasn't for Jay? Would kids today hound their parents for turntables and mixers in the same way the kids of the 1970s and '80s clamored for guitars and drum kits? I don't think so. Run-DMC's music broke boundaries, expanded minds and smashed down walls that had been in place since before any of the band members had been born. And it continues to do so to this day.

With Jam Master Jay's mixes behind them, Run-DMC brought the rap section of the record store from the back corner to the front.

Jam Master Jay left behind a wife, three children and a billion rap fanatics like myself who can only say, 'Goddamn, that DJ made my day.'
