Slain DJ’s cousin says Run-DMC’s Jam Master Jay was celebrating 50 Cent’s first record deal just one day before 2002 murder.

Jam Master Jay, a trailblazing figure in hip-hop, was reportedly in high spirits celebrating 50 Cent’s recent record deal just a day before his untimely death, according to testimony shared in court on Thursday.

The atmosphere at the 24/7 Studio in Hollis was one of joy as Jay, also known as Jason Mizell, expressed his excitement about 50 Cent’s signing to Dr. Dre’s Shady Records during a conversation with his cousin Stephon Watford. Their discussion revolved around a recent trip Jay and 50 Cent had taken to Milwaukee to mark the rapper’s signing.

However, tragedy struck the very next day, on October 30, 2002, when Jam Master Jay was fatally shot in the head in his own studio.

Watford recounted the heart-wrenching moment when Mizell’s sister received the devastating phone call informing her of her brother’s death. The news sent shockwaves through their tight-knit community.

Now, facing murder charges in connection with Jay’s death are Ronald Washington and Karl Jordan Jr., Jay’s godson. Prosecutors allege that the motive behind the murder stemmed from a combination of greed and revenge following a botched drug deal.

Watford also shared unsettling details about Washington’s ominous warning days prior to the murder, hinting at impending danger. Washington’s presence at Mizell’s sister’s house leading up to the tragic event only added to the suspicion.

Yarrah Concepcion, an aspiring R&B singer, bravely recounted her experience of being at the studio during the shooting. She vividly remembered the moment when the sound of gunshots abruptly ended her audition, leaving her in shock.

Michael Rapley, a close friend of Mizell’s, struggled to recall the chaotic aftermath of the shooting, indicating the profound impact it had on him.

Uriel “Tony” Rincon, who sustained injuries during the shooting, also took the stand, identifying Jordan as the assailant.

As the trial progresses, witnesses continue to shed light on the tragic events surrounding Jam Master Jay’s premature passing, offering a glimpse into the complex circumstances that led to his demise.
