There’s a really good two part interview at SOHH with Curtis Scoon, who at one point was being fingered by the media as a prime suspect in the murder of Jam Master Jay. Scoon was never actually named as a suspect by the police and has since cleared his name. In this interview he shares with SOHH his thoughts on the Industry, the murder, and who he thinks the investigators should focus on for answers. If you’ve read Queens Reigns Supreme, or my interview with the books author Ethan Brown, this piece is a must read.
Curtis Scoon on who implicated him in the JMJ murder investigation:
Scoon: I don’t know but, I hope they stop. Those people in the studio that night, they don’t have the clout and the power to push my name the way it was pushed. And the police, they never ever named me a suspect. So, who else has that kind of clout? I believe it’s the people connected with the music industry. Because the suspicion was pointing at the music industry at that time, there were individuals who were more concerned with protecting their property. So I was just a scapegoat. So once they had that established, they walked away. And I’m not gonna say any names, but you remember all those people that were around Jay’s family and friends when it first happened and once the investigation took another direction, they disappeared. Mission accomplished, understand what I’m sayin’?
