from back in tha day,

Diggin in crates


Till the late

Only he could play

tha stylus of tha turn tables arm

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


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




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


One of Tha


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


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.

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
