HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE LATE GREAT, #DJJAMMASTERJAY !!!! Jason Mizell was a musician and rapper, he is best known for being the DJ of the influential hip hop group Run–DMC.
During the 1980s, Run-D.M.C. became the biggest hip-hop group and are credited with breaking hip-hop into mainstream music. He was ranked No. 10 on Spin's list of the "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time.
On October 30, 2002, at 7:30 pm. Mizell was shot and killed in a Merrick Boulevard recording studio in Jamaica, Queens. The other person in the room, 25-year-old Urieco Rincon, was shot in the ankle and survived.
In 2003, Kenneth "Supreme" McGriff, a convicted drug dealer and longtime friend of Murder Inc. heads Irv and Chris Gotti, was investigated for targeting Mizell because the DJ defied an industry blacklist of rapper 50 Cent that was imposed because of "Ghetto Qu'ran", a song 50 Cent wrote about McGriff's drug history.
In April 2007, federal prosecutors named Ronald "Tenad" Washington as an accomplice in the murder. Washington also is a suspect in the 1995 murder of Randy "Stretch" Walker, a former close associate of the late legendary rapper Tupac Shakur. According to court papers filed by the prosecution, Washington “pointed his gun at those present in the studio, ordered them to get on the ground and provided cover for his associate to shoot and kill Jason Mizell." However he was never convicted and no new suspects have been named.
Following his death, several artists expressed their grief for the loss in the hip-hop community and remembered him for his influence on music and the genre.
Mizell was buried at the Ferncliff Cemetery in Hartsdale, New York.
LIFE & CAREER:
Mizell was born in Brooklyn, New York. At the age of 3 years he started playing trumpet and played bass, guitar, and drums in various bands prior to discovering turntables. He moved to Hollis, Queens in 1975 with his family where he soon discovered the turntables and started DJing at the age of 13. He caught on quickly because of his musical experience and after a year of DJing he felt that he was good enough to play in front of people. He first started playing at parks and later played at bars.
