JAM MASTER JAY

from back in tha day,

Diggin in crates

scratching

Till the late



Only he could play

tha stylus of tha turn tables arm

Tha style to keep ’’US’’ dancing till Dawn



Scratchin



the king of the DJ’s Happinins




 

Tha Style-’’just US’’ had that way‘

Came from Poverty an tha ditty-bop way

Only ’Us’’ had the style to dance, and chant that way



’Wave ya hands in the A-yaaaaa’

’Wave em like ya jus don’t k-yaaaaa’




 

Brake dancing

Acrobatin

pop-Lockin

Footstompin

Butt rockin

BB Boy Stance Blockin

Fly girl’s by the Basement Bronx Door

The party’s never over



after hour

Joint right next door

Thas the Party they be talkin bout

Down the Project halls




City electric from lamp posts in the parks


African Drum rhythm heard all in the junk yards


From the Drum to the slum


Thas where we be From

From the Drum to the slum

We Create our own Fun



A few hours break

from the streets that we run

A few hours break

where we not thinking where we come from

A few hours break we aint tote-N a gun



‘’Wave ya hands in the Air-Ayaaaaaaaaaa’’

‘’Wave em like ya jus don’t ka- yaaaaaaaa ‘’




those words

a Prayer to

- JAM MASTER JAY-

One of Tha

ORIGINAL HIP-HOP

Innovator’s from back in Na Day

he left

but his Spirit stays

nobody could ever take JAM MASTER JAY away

he left

but his Spirit stays

-JAM MASTER JAY-

Belonged to the PEOPLE

He Smiled Down an Said he Wanted it that Way.

This needs to be on a CD/DVD. There's much energy in this and much truth.

HELL YEEEAAAAHHH!!!
he discovered
a world of rhythyms
on the turntables
he mapped this
washing the heads
of the sinner
like he was JOHN the boom-BAP-tist
mixing up the samples
what others didn't use
becoming to those like me
a bad ass in leather muse
but what's hip hop now?
nothing worth to mention
been packaged and sold
like our ancestors
subject to a corporate lynchin'.


what i'm trying to say is, i really thought this was excellent. i'm glad he's not been forgotten.

peace and blessings, alex
