An event honoring the late DJ Timbuck2 called Timbuck2 Forever was held at the Metro in Chicago recently. This is the second year for the event. Fans from around the world converged on the venue with good spirits ready to hear some of the best Djs around pay tribute to Tim. The event served as a fundraiser for the Timothy Francis Jones Foundation. The foundation focuses on encouraging individuals, specifically men of color, to take their health seriously and go see the doctor. Tim passed away last year as a result of cancer.

“This is our way of getting the message out there: young men, specifically young men of color, need to be proactive about their health. They need to see doctors. The are so many people who have doctors and medical insurance and they don’t even use it. That’s our main push; we want people to get involved with their health and understand that this is something that is cool. We want people to share this with their children. The younger you start, the more ingrained it becomes. We do so many things that adversely affect our health. Going to the doctor is something you can do to help.” explained Ed Jones, DJ Timbuck2’s father.

As celebratory as the evening was, it took a serious turn when Tim’s mother delivered a sobering message about why it is so important for people to take care of themselves. She mentioned at one point during her video message that if Tim had been more active, she wouldn’t have to be delivering this message.

DJ Clark Kent and Dj Green Lantern flew in to pay tribute and tear the house down with their exceptional skills. The legendary rap group surprised the crowd with a performance as they treated them to some classics.

Timbuck2 Forever is a celebration Tim’s life and his foundation is here to save lives.
