Sixteen years ago, Run-D.M.C. co-founder Jam Master Jay (aka Jason Mizell) was murdered in his Queens, New York studio. He was just 37 years old. The murder remains unsolved. A new documentary by Brian Oakes (Abstract: The Art Of Design, Jim: The James Foley Story) aims to take a closer look beyond the New York Police Department investigation.

Remastered: Who Killed Jam Master Jay premieres on Netflix this Friday (December 7). Narrated by Hip-Hop journalist and documentarian Rahman Dukes, the film examines what took place on October 30, 2002, in Jamaica, Queens. The doc will use footage of Jay, details from the police report, and new information to offer theories on who may have killed the DJ, producer, and member of one of Hip-Hop’s most legendary groups.

In a trailer for the doc, displays allege who was at the studio that night, suggest that Mizell was armed at the time of his attack, and why the killing may have been orchestrated. There is also commentary from J.M.J’s brother.

In recent years, various documentaries have looked at other unsolved murders of Rap artists, including Tupac Shakur and Biggie Smalls.
