On Tuesday (February 27), both defendants Karl Jordan Jr. and Ronald Washington were found guilty on all counts. Taking to Instagram with a screenshot of the news shortly after, Fif shared his contentment with the results.

“That the victim, professionally known as Jam Master Jay, was a Hip Hop icon and Run-DMC’s music was born in Hollis, Queens, in this very district, and beloved by so many, adds to the tragedy of a life senselessly cut short.”
