When i woke up this morning i was still in shock about how DJ was found dead early yesterday evening in his NYC apartment. I personally only had the chance to meet him once but after yucking it up for about 10-15minutes i felt like i knew DJ AM for years. Thats just the kind of guy he was, he didnt act like he had celebrity status and was a level above the “average folks”.
Late last night, in honor of his life and his serious passion for sneakers we presented you the DJ AM Sneaker Collection Video which was filmed back in 2006 for MTV News.
Today we would like to provide you with some pictures that were taken during that segment with MTV News. The video clip didnt really display to many of DJ AM’s favorite sneakers like these pictures do.
