DJ Megatron Murdered

DJ Megatron, a former Hot 97 personality and regular on BET’s 106 & Park, was gunned down in the Clifton section of Staten Island, New York early Sunday morning (March 27).

It has been reported that Megatron was down the street from his home when he was approached and shot in the torso. The 32-year-old DJ, whose real name was Corey McGriff, died on the street. So far, no witnesses have come forward.

New York’s Daily News reported on comments left on Megatron’s YouTube page about three months ago. The comments were left by a person claiming that Megatron owed them money, however police have said that Mega did not look to be a victim of a robbery and could not say whether the YouTube commenter was an actual suspect.

Police are asking anyone with information to come forward. —Rob Markman

      Black folk never see nothing, but always want justice. We have that ignorant “No Snitch” code-meanwhile, ignorant criminals get away with murder because they know no one will say anything. Someone saw it happen, they always do.


        I totally agree with you.
        And then we wonder why other races still treat us as only entertainment to amuse them or doormats to wipe their feet on.

        We need to rise up and start taking this life shit for real.
        That’s my opinion.

    May he rest in peace. Hopefully his death will not be in vain. I hope someone comes forward as a witness & not this crap about not wanting to be a snitch! His family needs closure.
