For almost two decades, RUN-DMC broke down racial barriers, fused rock and rap, brought it to the streets and the suburbs, and put Hollis, Queens on the map.
Now one of them is gone.
He was a man of peace. A husband and a father of three.
Could have lived anywhere in the world, but he kept Queens as his home, because he was all about giving back to the community.
Like someone just posted in their memorial:
“Rap had just lost their first Beatle”
Rest in peace, Jam Master Jay. 🙁
