69. Remastered: Who Killed Jam Master Jay? 12/7/18: RUN-DMC DJ Jam Master Jay made a huge impact in music and his community. But friends and family still seek closure years after his unsolved murder. Jam Master Jay’s friends and family ponder the late DJ’s unsolved murder in the intriguing new trailer for Netflix docu-series ReMastered. The program’s latest installment, “Who Killed Jam Master Jay?,” launches globally on December 7th. The story opens by surveying the musician’s rise to fame in the 1980s with pioneering rap group Run-DMC, previewing interview subjects who praise the DJ (real name Jason Mizell) as a “larger-than-life figure” and a “one-man band.” But the preview turns dark after pivoting to his 2002 murder, which occurred after assailants were buzzed into his Queens recording studio and opened fire, killing the hip-hop legend at age 37. The trailer hints at intimidated witnesses, tampered-with security cameras and the possibility of an “inside job.” “One of my biggest fears,” one interviewee says, “was that Jay’s murder could be swept under the rug.” “Was the killing part of 50 Cent’s feud with notorious local drug lords?” Netflix wrote of the episode in statement. “Was it a grudge against a member of security? Did it involve unpaid debts, or was it an inside job? Rumors flew, but none fit the hard-working DJ everyone knew as a peacekeeper. Though suspects were zeroed in on, Mizell’s friends and family have endured 16 years with no justice and no conviction, only unanswered questions.” 1 Hour Duration
