Jam Master Jay, Part of Run DMC, Killed in Shooting

I love Run DMC. They fought *against* gang violence. They had inventive lyrics and a great style of presentation. They are rap of a happier time, not what rap/hip-hop has turned into today. A quote from the above article sums it up aptly:

"Initially when I heard the news I was devastated, but not as shocked as I expected I'd be," Angela Young, A&R coordinator at J Records, told Fox News.

"My response was a strong indication that hip-hop culture has been desensitized to senseless death," she said.

Thanks to my new favorite news site, Google News, you can read lots of articles about this.
