Jam Master Jay was honored this past Tuesday during the Scratch DJ Academy’s 10th anniversary party at the Canal Room. A-Trak, one of the academy’s original instructors, was also honored that evening and stood beside the late Jam Master Jay’s son, TJ Mizell, to watch a video honoring his father.

The event marked a milestone for Scratch, the world’s first ever DJ school, co-founded by Rob Principe and Jay.

Jam Master Jay’s former partner in crime, Darryl “D.M.C.” McDaniels of Run-D.M.C., spun some of their classics including “It’s Tricky” and “Walk This Way.”

Jay’s widow, Terri Mizell, thanked the crowd on behalf of her husband. DJ QBert and DJ Kool Herc, both affiliates of Scratch, also accepted awards.
