Philadelphia, PA 9.2.12 – One of the absolute highlights of me getting to shoot at the inaugural Made In America Music Festival this past September was RUN DMC being in the lineup. It was to mark the first time in over a decade they were to perform together. After Jam Master Jay’s assassination, the band went on hiatus for many years. JMJ was heavy on the crowd’s hearts and minds as they tore through an abundant arsenal of classic hits. Both JMJ’s sons, T.J. and Jam Master J’Son were on stage as the band’s DJ’s.

Their set resonated heavily with me as I grew up on their music. I still crank it up to this day with the same exuberance from back in the day.
