Lyor Cohen, Andre Harrell, Percy Sutton and Jam Master Jay. Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York. February 1986 #DefJam30

Sutton, an esteemed lawyer, political activist, and New York City office-holder, eventually branched into the media business. His firm, Inner City Broadcasting, bought the world-famous Apollo in 1983 and spearheaded its revitalization. This photo was taken under the marquee of the Apollo at the beginning of a series of shows there featuring Rush and Def Jam artists.
