October 30, 2012 marked the 10th Year Anniversary of the date a legend was lost, Jason “Jam Master Jay” Mizell – DJ of the the iconic hip-hop group Run DMC.
On October 30, 2002 Jam Master Jay was tragically gunned down in his Jamaica, Queens studio. To date the case remains unsolved, there have been many stories but no one has yet been arrested for this horrific murder.
Jay was a talented DJ/Producer with a strong appreciation for music. He played several instruments and was involved with music for the majority of his life.
Jay’s life is still celebrated, his legacy lives on.
