2 charged in killing of Jam Master Jay

Recommended Posts


"When Jam Master Jay, the D.J. for the pioneering rap group Run DMC, was killed in his studio in Queens nearly 20 years ago, it struck the hip-hop world with the force of a tragedy.

"Shrines to Jay, whose real name was Jason Mizell, popped up in barbershops and on street corners. People wanted to know who could have gunned down a peaceful, old-school D.J. whose group rapped mostly about sneakers, girls and basketball.

"Over the next two decades, Mr. Mizell’s murder achieved a mythic status as one of the rap world’s coldest cases. There were plenty of leads, but none of them resulted in charges — until now."

Yep, just another "peaceful, old-school" drug dealer. Can't imagine why anyone would gun him down... And yeah, with the "no snitchin" culture of the black community, I just can't understand how this case remained cold for 20 years...
