Studio Shooting

Jam Master Jay of Run-DMC was shot in the head and killed in a recording studio tonight. Scary stuff.

very scary indeed...but, it seems to be almost human nature to violate that which used to be sacred...people are killed in churches, schools, hospitals, etc., so I guess recording studios are fair game now as well...

Yeah, but whoever thought that ducking bullets would be part of the job like placing mics? Also, a school or hospital has a greater chance for violance then a studio just due to the greater number of people there. It's not the first time someone has been murdered in a studio and I'm sure it won't be the last.

Jam Master Jay will be sorely missed. He pioneered some of the greatest rap records ever to hit the planet. He was there at the start, when rap was good, and he shaped its future. I have no doubt that rap has influenced music as much as punk or any other genre did. Hats off to the man who helped put it on the map.

We all took the day off at the studio. J was cool as hell. The rumors started flying into my two-way last night, but I'm trying not to listen to them until everyone knows the real scoop.
