Co-founded by Connie Mizell-Perry and Marvin Thompson, the mother and brother of the late hip hop legend, the Jam Master Jay Foundation for Youth continues Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell’s legacy of creating and supporting educational and economic opportunities for youth and young adults from ages 6 – 21, and honours Mizell’s many contributions to hip hop culture and music history.

 

Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell (1965 – 2002) was a legendary hip hop DJ, a gifted musicians and music producer, an entrepreneur, a community activist, a philanthropist, and the greatest DJ in music history. In the 80s, during the height of his career and during the dawn of a new era of technology, Jam Master Jay’s use of the record turntable as a musical instrument forever established the DJ’s role as an integral member of the band.

 

A self-taught DJ, Jam Master Jay’s creative genius as an artist, turntablist, and producer set standards of innovation and excellence in the music industry that remain unmatched, inspiring millions to become DJs and music producers.

 

During his illustrious career, Jam Master Jay and his ground-breaking, Grammy Award-winning group RUN-DMC Saturday Night Live became hip hop pioneers, saturating popular culture while staying connected to urban America. RUN-DMC was the first hip-hop group to perform on NBC’s Saturday Night Live; the first to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine; the only hip hop act to perform at LIVE AID; and the first to receive a product endorsement deal (Adidas).

 

Jam Master Jay is the first DJ in history to be honoured with a guitar center Hollywood Rock Walk inducted Feb 25th, 2002.
