Hip Hop Legend Jam Master Jay Died 15 Years Ago Today

Hip Hop Legend Jam Master Jay Died 15 Years Ago Today”

Almost 15 years after Jam Master Jay was murdered, the police has officially ruled it as a cold case, reports the Associated Press. "It's not resolved to the legal eye", a family friend, Jeremy "JL" Lam, told the Associated Press. One which state a probable chance Jay was murdered on the reservations of money, and another due to his association with 50 Cent, who was signed to Mizell's label Jam Master Jay Records. One set of gunfire reportedly missed the Queens legend, but the second round of shots which stood at point-blank range struck the DJ, and the gunmen disappeared into thin air.

Ryan Thompson is Mizell's cousin. While there were allegedly four other men in the studio, no one has ever been able to provide authorities with any information substantial enough for a promising lead. Although the police have conceded, Jam Master Jay's close friends and family say that someone knows what really happened to him.

After leading the pioneering group Run-DMC to prominence with both his turntable wizardry and stylistic cues, Jay opened his 24/7 Studio in what was considered a violent section of Queens to help up and coming artists.

Prosecutors later identified a career criminal serving time for armed robbery a suspect.

"Jam Master's Jay's mother who's here and RIP to JMJ", Simmons said in his speech. Thompson said a security camera in the studio was broken. Two more showed DMC hugging Public Enemy's Chuck D during the impromptu wake and a handwritten poster reading, "Rest in Peace, We'll Fight 4 Justice".

"He's right there, so there's no getting away from it", performer Jaquan "Tipsy" Hardaway, said of the mural as he walked into the studio last week. "[He] could have built this studio anywhere, but he built it here, where it was needed", said Alix Dontfraid, founder of Signature Soundz Studios. But he also tries to stay positive.
