Jam Master Jay Finally Gets Justice
After 18 years indictments have finally been made in the murder of hip hop pioneer Jam Master Jay. Two men, Karl Jordan and Ronald Washington, have been arrested for the crime.
Anyone this side of the planet Saturn know Jam Master Jay was the DJ and member of the legendary Run DMC. The kings of rock have sold over 15 million records. If you don’t know who they are you probably didn’t click on this article anyway.
Hip Hop culture has been plagued with unsolved murders of its most loved sons. Biggie and Tupac’s murders remain unsolved to this day. It was easy to think that the murder of Jam Master Jay would remain a cold case.
It’s unclear what new evidence led to the arrest of Jordan and Washington. The narcotics business is a cold game. Some report that JMJ was involved in the drug game and this led to his untimely death.
Today isn’t a day to investigate motive though. It is a time to think of Jam Master Jay’s family and their relief that justice might finally be arriving.
JMJ was the King of Rock, one-man band, community beacon, and hip hop icon. Respect to the legend.
