*A convicted drug dealer claims Jam Master Jay sold cocaine to make ends meet. 

Ralph Mullgrav testified about the alleged drug dealing at the federal murder trial over the DMC’s 2002 death. We reported earlier via CNN that the DJ of the hip-hop group Run-DMC was fatally shot in a recording studio in New York City in 2002. 

Mullgrav claims he sold Jam Master Jay, born Jason Mizell, “maybe 1 or 2 kilos, here or there” of cocaine. 

“Jason wasn’t a drug dealer. He just used it to make ends meet,” Mullgrav told jurors.

More than two decades after the killing, two men, DMC’s godson, Karl Jordan Jr., and his childhood friend Ronald Washington, are on trial for the murder. The defendants pleaded not guilty to murder in a case.

An alleged drug dispute prompted the shooting, according to prosecutors.

As CNN reports, in August 2020, the US attorney for the Eastern District of New York unsealed a criminal indictment alleging that Jay was involved in transporting kilogram-quantities of cocaine between 1996 and 2002.

Here’s more from the article:

In July 2002, he acquired about 10 kilograms of cocaine, which was intended to be distributed by Washington, Jordan and others, the indictment states. But a dispute between Washington and a co-conspirator led Jay to tell Washington he would be cut out of the transaction, prosecutors say.

Washington and Jordan then allegedly conspired to kill him. On October 30, they entered Jam Master Jay’s recording studio with firearms, and Jordan fatally shot Mizell in the head and shot another man in the leg, according to the indictment.

Jordan and Washington were each charged with murder while engaged in narcotics trafficking and firearm-related murder. 

Mullgrav spent 12 years in federal prison for drug-related convictions. He was released in 2013.
