MC Kwajo, of Canadian hip-hop group Ghetto Concept — who are on the same label as Run-DMC in Canada — was shocked when he first heard the news of Jam Master Jay’s murder in Queens last week. “It’s definitely devastating. He was more than a DJ. He was up front in the group and it’s gonna be a lot to get over for sure,” Kwajo said. “I met him in Montreal when Ghetto Concept opened for DMC. Jam Master Jay came up to us after the show and said, ‘Yo, your stuff is hot.’ He also asked us if we had a manager. For him to acknowledge us and say those things was a big deal to me. He was real cool. He was chill. He wasn’t Hollywood. He was a regular dude.”
