Thousands of fans,
friends and family came out to honor hip-hop legend Jam Master Jay in Saint
Albans, Queens in New York. Throngs of people lined Linden Blvd. on a chilly
fall evening to get a glimpse of the man who broke down so many barriers in
Jay was dressed
in Run-DMC's trademark uniform: a black leather suit, a gold rope chain necklace
with a sneaker pendent and a pair of crisp Adidas.
Cars rode up and
down Linden Blvd. playing a variety of Run-DMC classics, some were even adorned
with "RIP Jam Master Jay" banners. Other people wore custom made T-Shirts
that featured Jay's face.
The ceremony started
after 7 P.M. at the J Foster-Phillips Funeral Home and despite the long lines,
police continued to allow fans to see Jam Master Jay until almost 10 P.M.
