In the video clip below, Jay-Z speaks on the DJ Am. R.I.P. AM.
“I met him the day before the plane crash,” Jay told MTV News on Monday, days after AM was found dead in his New York apartment. “We were doing the concert, and he told me that he had to go down to South Carolina to do a show with Travis, and then we’d go and do our show.
“The plane crash happened, and I’m thinking, ‘Let him recover. We’ll talk about that some other time,’ ” Jay continued. “He called, like, ‘Nah, man, I’m still ready to go.’ I was shocked by that at first. He came, he had a bandage on his head, and he was ready to go. He was someone that really loved what he did. That’s passion: to love what you do and still go forward.”
The two impressed the crowd throughout their performance together. At one point, Jay ventured behind the turntables while AM hammed it up for the crowd. “Make some noise for DJ AM,” Jay ordered the crowd.

Enough said. Rest in peace to one of the great DJ’s of all time.
NEW YORK (AP) — DJ AM, the sought-after disc jockey who became a celebrity in his own right with high-profile romances and a glamorous lifestyle, was found dead Friday at his apartment, which had drug paraphernalia in it, a law enforcement official said.
Paramedics had to break down the door to his Manhattan apartment before they found his body at about 5:20 p.m., the official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because family hadn’t been notified. There was no evidence of foul play, the official said.
