Curtis Scoon took to the media again to refute any connection to the unsolved murder of Jam Master Jay when the New York Daily News implicated him in its article about the reunion tour of Run-DMC on Tuesday. Jason Mizelli, or Jam Master Jay, provided the backbeat to the group’s music and was shot in a recording studio ten years ago with multiple witnesses on site, but their testimony has not been forthcoming or consistent.
The NYPD was hopeful that Ronald Washington could be charged as either the lookout or the gunman. He was alleged to have been ordered to kill Jam Master Jay for an unsettled drug debt owed to Curtis Scoon, but his former girlfriend who brought the story to the police later recanted.
Scoon told AllHipHop that he was “taken aback by the persistent efforts to connect me to the tragic death of Jason Mizell.” Further, “I addressed my non-involvement in this crime several months back with ‘#ScoonTV.’ I believe readers will find it quite informative.”
Five people were present at the scene of the crime, including Randy Allen, who spoke with distrust of the others in the room for failing to reveal the killer, undoubtedly because the person must have had close ties to the whole group. “People who live in Hollis where Jay came from, they might be scared or nervous and not wanting to say s**t as they don?t want that n***a coming around and shooting up their family; so they sit back and keep their mouth shut.” The gunman had shot Mizelli point blank in mid-embrace.
Ronald Washington is serving a 17-year sentence for separate motel robberies, while Scoon currently lives in Georgia, ever committed to bringing the black and Latino underworld to light with his book Queen Reign Supreme and production of BET’s American Gangster.
