    Default NYC disc jockey shot 13 times dies

    NEW YORK - A popular hip-hop disc jockey died Saturday after being shot at least 13 times earlier this month, police said.

    Carl Blaze, born Carlos Rivera, was shot outside an apartment building near Manhattan's Inwood section on Dec. 7, and his $20,000 diamond chain was stolen, police said. He was taken to Harlem Hospital Center, where he died Saturday.

    Blaze, 30, was a DJ for hip-hop and R&B radio station Power 105.1 FM for about three years. He had gained a large fan base by spinning records at clubs and on the air on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Power 105.1 FM was holding a tribute for Blaze on Saturday night. The station is owned by Clear Channel Communications.

    "Our thoughts and prayers are with his family at this time," said Josefa Paganuzzi, a Clear Channel spokeswoman.

    Police said the investigation into the shooting was ongoing.

    Clear Channel probably hired some punk-ass thug bitch to take the guy out, a la Tupac and Biggie.

    Shit Channel thought "Hey, we can have the guy whacked for a few hunnie bucks, make it look like a robbery, voice-track the guy's shift from f'in Cleveland and then release the ol "our thoughts and prayers are with the family" statement b.s. to make it sound like we give a shit.

    Way to go Crap Channel.

    I'm sure none of the songs he played glorified the type of violence that ended his life...

    He probably stopped taking pay-ola.

    There is some good hip-hop and rap out there, but most of the stuff that gets played is crap. Reason? Pay-ola. The difference between Pay-ola on rock/pop stations and Rap/Hip-Hop stations is that rap and hip-hop are too close to street organized crime types. So when a Rap promoter tells you to play his label's new release you get paid or youu get your ass beat or you get dead.

    I think he shot himself then ate the gun and diamond chain. It will all come out once the autopsy is finalized. I also wouldn't rule out cancer, at least not with the information available.
