‘Hip-Hop Cop’ Claims He Knows Who Killed Jam-Master Jay [VIDEO]
Derrick Parker, the "Hip-Hop Cop" who spent more than 20 years with the NYPD investigating cases involving rappers, spoke to VladTV about the 2002 murder of Jam-Master Jay.
The Run-D.M.C. deejay (born Jason Mizell) was famously gunned down in a Queens studio on October 30, 2002. Similarly to other high-profile hip-hop murders, no arrests have ever been made in the case, but Parker claims that could change very soon.
"Of the 'Big 3,' that case is the closest to being solved," Parker told VladTV, referencing Jam's murder as well as the killings of Tupac Shakur and the Notorious B.I.G. He talked about speculation that the receptionist at the studio was able to see the gunman.
"Yeah, that was always mentioned back then," Parker said, but wouldn't go into details. "I don't want to comment too much because I don't want to ruin anything."
Parker says that "it was just time to go" when he left the NYPD in the early 2000s but said that the department could be calling him to help with the Mizell case, which he calls very "personal" to him.
"They're doing their investigation and they may call upon me to help them," Parker explained.
Parker explains his thinking on the case in the video above the story.
