Jam Master Jay was a pioneering DeeJay who rose to fame with Hall of Fame Rap Group Run-DMC. Born Jason William Mizell in New York, Jay Master Jay’s murder was one of Hip-hop’s many unsolved murders.
However, that is no longer that case after Ronald Washington and Karl Jordan Jr were brought up on charges for the killing.
“The men, Ronald Washington and Karl Jordan Jr., were indicted on charges of murder while engaged in drug trafficking, according to two law enforcement officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity. It was not immediately clear what role the two men played in the killing, but investigators believe Mr. Mizell was involved in the finances of the drug-trafficking operation.” – The New York Times
