Onyx Star Producing Movie On Jam Master Jay

ONYX rapper FREDRO STARR is set to produce a movie based on the life story of his mentor and late RUN-DMC DJ JAM MASTER JAY.

The script is being written with a cousin of Jay's and according to Starr, DEREK LUKE, MEKHI PHIFER, WILL SMITH and QUEEN LATIFAH have expressed interest in the movie, which he hopes to have out as soon as next year (05).

The rapper and actor tells ALLHIPHOP.COM, "JMJ put me in the game. The first time I went to Los Angeles, I was with JMJ. I was gonna do a TV show with RUSSELL SIMMONS and QUINCY JONES called B-BOYS when I first got signed to JMJ records with Onyx. He's been my mentor from day one."

No one has been arrested or charged for the murder of the legendary DJ, who was gunned down in 2002 in Queens, New York.
