11 years ago, legendary hip-hop DJ Jam Master Jay was murdered in a Queens, New York studio. The record scratching perfectionist from Run–D.M.C. was known as one of the greatest on the turntables. Hot 97 DJ Mr. Cee dedicated an afternoon mix full of classic songs that Jam Master Jay showcased his genius scratching skills on. The hour long radio mix includes Run–D.M.C. album cuts, live performances, and demos.
"Never gone, never forgotten," DJ Mr. Cee states over the tribute, dropping classics such as "Walk This Way" and "Peter Piper." The mix shows that the Jam Master Jay's legacy will forever live on, as the songs clearly still stand the test of time. Without Jay's craftsmanship, who knows if Run-D.M.C.'s success would have been the same.
