Today in #HipHopHistory: Today would have been Jam Master Jay’s 55th birthday! Salute to a #legendary #hiphop DJ lost too soon. #JasonWilliamMizell (January 21, 1965 – October 30, 2002), better known by his stage name #JamMasterJay, was a musician and DJ of the influential hip hop group #RunDMC. During the 1980s, Run-D.M.C. became one of the biggest hip hop groups and are credited with breaking hip-hop into mainstream music. #JMJ first started playing at parks and later played at bars. He also began throwing small parties around the area. Once he got a pair of #Technics1200s he improved rapidly since he was able to practice at night with headphones on when he was supposed to be sleeping. Mizell became a DJ because he "just wanted to be a part of the band". Prior to joining Run-D.M.C. he played bass and drums in several garage bands. In 1982 he hooked up with Joseph "Run" Simmons and Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels just after they graduated from high school and agreed to DJ for them. On Run-D.M.C's album #RaisingHell, Mizell played keyboards, bass, and live drums in addition to his turntable work. Mizell remained in his childhood neighborhood in Hollis, Queens his entire life. In 1989, Mizell established the label #JamMasterJayRecords. They are most known for signing #50Cent and #Onyx. In 2002, Mizell founded the #ScratchDJAcademy in Manhattan to "provide unparalleled education and access to the art form of the DJ and producer." On October 30, 2002, while recording new music at his studio in the Jamaica section of #Queens, #NewYorkCity, Mizell was shot and killed by an unknown assailant. #classichiphop #ripjmj #ripjammasterjay
"I'm so devoted to my music and becoming the best artist I can be. I don't want to devote too much time to anything else before I say I've conquered that. I just wanna become bigger and I'm never satisfied with just what I am today, I just always want to be bigger. If I was Bill Gates, I would double Bill Gates. That's the mindstate you should keep in any profession, just keep striking iron and trying to get bigger and better."
Happy birthday to the legendary Jam Master Jay. This man is the biggest inspiration behind what I do on the turntables, in the lab and on the boards to this day. DJ, producer and performer aside, Jay was an amazing human being who left an incredible legacy for everyone who knew him - even if it was only through his music. Peace and love to his friends, family and all the JMJ fans out there. “You’ll see Jay again my friend.” 👑 @jammasterjayofficial
