Brooklyn born, Queens legend Jason Mizell, better known as Jam Master Jay, beloved Dj / Producer for HipHop’s iconic group RUN DMC, founder of the Scratch Dj Academy, a god in the turntablist world, was senselessly murdered at his studio in Jamaica, Queens on October 30th, 2002 by Karl Jordan Jr. and Ronald Washington over an aledged dispute over fuckin WEED of all things. Our condolences to Jason’s family who’ve had to endure 18 years of bullshit brought on to them by a seriously skewed system set up to keep Black American’s in a constant state of fear. 18 long year’s it’s taken a federal grand jury to indict the two men. If weed was legal, none of this shit would have happened. Imagine a world with JMJ still rockin the decks? Those two pieces of shit may have conspired to murder JMJ, but do not overlook the ever looming culprit here; the United States blatantly crooked, overtly racist system of justice that may have taken the shackles off black men’s hands in 1865 with the 13th Amendment, but in turn have placed a pistol in their hands instead. To know Jay was to love him and we will forever honor his memory.
