RUN DMC - RIP JMJ: This was the first piece created in this series. It was made the day after the senseless murder of Run DMC’s legendary DJ, Jam Master Jay. Jam Master Jay was more than a DJ, he was as fundamental a part of the group as Run and DMC.

The murder also highlighted, once again, how susceptible Black men living in urban areas are to this type of senseless, random violence, regardless of age or fame.

So I created this piece in tribute to a legend and a member of the group whose Raising Hell album was the first HipHop album I ever owned.
