JMJ was killed on October 30, 2002 inside his Jamaica, Queens studio on the age of 37. Netflix premiered the ReMastered: Who Killed Jam Master Jay? documentary final month, which explored the main points of the case.
In archival footage of the evening it occurred, Public Enemy’s Chuck D and plenty of of JMJ’s friends arrive on the scene in disbelief. It stays certainly one of Hip Hop’s greatest unsolved murders, alongside the murders of Tupac Shakur and The Notorious B.I.G.
