August 27, 1987 – On This Date In Hip-Hop, we lost DJ Scott La Rock of Boogie Down Productions. Scott La Rock was shot in the head as he sat in a jeep that was leaving the scene of an altercation with a group of men. Story has it that Scott was defending D-Nice who had been assaulted earlier by the men for talking to one of their ex’s. RIP Scott La Rock
