Editorial Reviews

Legendary hip-hop DJ Jason Mizell, aka Jam Master Jay, is gunned down in his Queens studio. Security tapes of the incident mysteriously disappear, the five witnesses are uncooperative and no one is talking...until now. 2 TURNTABLES AND A MICROPHONE documents the investigation of the unsolved murder of Jam Master Jay, RUN- DMC's groundbreaking DJ and producer, deftly revealing the history of hip-hop and mainstream rap along the way. Exclusive, candid interviews with 50 Cent, Ja Rule, Russell Simmons, RUN-DMC, LL Cool J, The Game, and more offer insight into Jam Master Jay's life - including information that could finally help police solve the murder that shook the music world to its core.

More people should be asking questions about JMJ's murder. If this documentary does what it's supposed to, you'll be outraged and demanding answers. You'll also hear the life story of a wonderful man and supporter of the Hollis community. There'll never be another JMJ, the best DJ in the USofA.

Format: DVD
This DVD focuses on the musical life and tragic death of hip hop's pioneering DJ Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell, who was responsible for the musical sound and style of Run-D.M.C., the first rap group to break out of the urban confines of the genre and achieve national success. Vintage photos are intercut with a series of interview snippets with the likes of Hollis, Queens homeboys, Run-D.M.C. insiders (The Simmons brothers, Russell and "Run" (Joseph) appear extensively, but Darryl "D.M.C." McDaniels is missing), current and past hip hop noteables (especially 50 cent, who helped bankroll this project)and industry bit players. We get a picture of Jay as an innovator and rock steady presence in both Run D.M.C. as well as in the Queens hip hop scene in general.

The biggest disappointment here is a near complete lack of actual Run-D.M.C. music (except for tiny snippets), as well as no footage from their videos--videos that finally managed to crack an MTV hip-hop barrier in the mid-80's. Run-D.M.C. were just about the first rap group to incorporate rock music into their sound, but that's not mentioned in the film. In fact, most white, suburban classic rock listeners got their intro to Run-D.M.C. through the single and video of their collaboration with members of Aerosmith in 1986 on "Walk This Way" (which was also the first rap single to crack the top ten on the billboard singles chart), but you wouldn't know how immense or meaningful that historic summit of talents was by watching this---the song is neither mentioned nor played (although a tour with Aerosmith in 2002 is referred to accompanied by a fleeting shot of the two groups at a press event.

I thought this Documentary was insightful. I hope that it would shed light on the culprits of the assassination of Jam Master Jay, and that the individual(s) will be brought to justice.

Jam Master Jay aka Jason Mizell was more than just an DJ and pioneer, he was a father, dear brother, mentor, and great innovator that changed the game with the turntables. Been like 10 years now since JMJ left us too soon by gunpoint on October 30, 2002, so on this documentary as I seen over and over, it tells the truth whoever was involved in this murder scenario or cause this to happen, is searching for justice.

It also speaks about his entire life, his career, his family and much more. Kudos to JMJ's cousin on speaking and conducting interviews with the people that knew Jam Master Jay best as with Jason Mizell. I'll always be loyal to Run-DMC and loyal to the family who wants justice for the slain killing of Jam Master Jay. Similar to the unsolved murders of Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls, this one is added next on the list.

The Dakah Hip Hop orchestra also done a stunning and amazing score for this documentary.

Get this documentary if you want real truth behind what went down.
