Run-DMC/Jam Master Jay Street Sign Dedicated in Queens
The corner of 205th Street and Hollis Avenue in Queens is now officially "Run-DMC JMJ Way," by way of homage to the rap group and its murdered DJ, Jam Master Jay. The sign was hoisted on Sunday (after being announced back in July), and Run spoke at the ceremony, telling the crowd "I lived right down that block," according to the the Daily News. DMC added: ""We are who we are because of you people." Rap Radar brought cameras to the dedication: above is the unveiling of the sign, and below, Jam Master Jay's mom speaks, too, telling the Adidas clad masses "This is a proud day for my whole family."
