before the pioneering DJ was gunned down. "Jay
knew these guys since he was a kid," a source told AllHipHop.com. "We
all knew Tinard’s history, he was in and out of jail. He f**kin shot his own cousin
and paralyzed him and put him in a wheel chair. We go in and out of town, and
Jay’s cousin got Tinard living in Jay’s f**cking crib. The crib Jay’s father left
for him. He got Tinard living there. Jay wasn’t pleased and said ‘he gotta come
up outta there.’"Washington

after Jam Master Jay’s slaying.He

career criminal admitted to the 1995 murder of Randy "Stretch" Walker,
as well as the 2002 slaying of Jam Master Jay."Tinard
went on the robbery spree because he was homeless," another source revealed.

were thrown out onto the street. He didn’t have anywhere or anything, so he went
on a robbing spree."The

Queens studio, 24/7. In
a bombshell revelation, the source also revealed that the other trigger man is
from Hollis. "They

Jam Master Jay may have been stolen from that house.Jam
