Slain rap star Jam Master Jay is to be honoured with a new movie about his life.

The RUN-DMC star's protege Fredro Starr is looking to cast top black names like Queen Latifah, Derek Luke and Will Smith in the film about the DJ, who was fatally shot in his studio in 2002.

Starr says, "It's a good way for me to produce my first movie, and a good way for me to give something back to hip-hop, Jay and his family."

New York police are still on the hunt for the man who shot Jam Master Jay, real name JASON MIZELL.
