Couldn’t wait to see Jam-Master jammin’

DMC happy with Jam Master Jay probe
NEW YORK (AP) — Police investigating the killing of Jam Master Jay are doing “an excellent job,” said DMC of the rap group Run-DMC.
No arrests have been made in the shooting death of the group’s disc jockey, whose real name was Jason Mizell. The 37-year-old was shot execution-style on Oct. 30 in his Queens recording studio.
DMC, whose real name is Darryl McDaniels, was optimistic that the killer would be caught.
“You know a lot of people think that cops are the enemy and they really don’t care. But the police that are working on Jay’s death are doing an excellent job,” DMC said in an interview with MTV News, airing Tuesday.
“You got hope that if the cops don’t catch them, the streets will. Whoever did it, ’cause the streets talk. Eventually we will know who did it and boom bang.”
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Tuesday he had nothing new to report on the case.
DMC also said that he and Joseph “Run” Simmons have retired from performing since Jay’s death.
“When you see Run-DMC and Jam Master Jay it was something that was original, it was something unique, it was something special,” he said.
“Out of respect to Jay, we looked at it like, all right, he served his purpose, he served his purpose and his job was done.”
