Dj Jam Master Jay - Dj Jam Master Jay To Be Celebrated At Back-to-school Event

The life of late Dj Jam Master Jay is set to be celebrated by his Run-D.M.C. bandmate Darryl Mcdaniels at a back-to-school event on Thursday (15Aug13).

Rapper MCDaniels will join friends of the hip-hop hitmaker, real name Jason Mizell, at pal Eric James' Three Stripes Barber & Beauty barber shop in Milwaukee, Wisconsin to remember the slain hitmaker, who was killed in a New York recording studio in 2002.

James tells AllHipHop.com, "We still miss him terribly. We keep it positive and try to live our lives the way he lived his - by helping others. With this event we work to do something good for my community in Jay's name. Last year was our first event. We were able to distribute 50 free book bags to kids. This year we'll be giving out 100 book bags, 100 Adidas sneakers, Adidas socks and Adidas snap backs (caps). The book bags will be filled with school supplies, pencils papers, folders, crayons, rulers, glue and calculators."
