Thousands of fans, friends and family attended the funeral of RUN-DMC star DJ JAM MASTER JAY in QUEENS, NEW YORK yesterday (November 5)
Hip-Hop legends, including Sean “P Diddy” Combs and Queen Latifah, were amongst a congregation who joined the surviving members of Run-DMC and Jay’s family for the funeral at Allen AME Cathedral in New York.
The star, real name Jason Mizell, was one of two men shot in an incident inside a studio in Queens (October 30). He was shot in the head and died at the scene. The second man, Urieco Rincon, was shot in the leg and taken to a local hospital. As yet, no arrests have been made.
The Reuters news service reports that thousands of other, some wearing the group’s trademark unlaced Adidas trainers and playing music, were also among the 2,000 mourners in attendance.
