DJ AM LAST TWIT - "New york, new york. Big city of dreams, but everything in new york aint always what it seems."

Club-owner and celebrity scratcher Adam Goldstein, who was far better known by the moniker DJ AM, was found dead Friday morning in his New York apartment, according to media reports. He was 36.

Details have been sparse so far, but New York police confirmed that a body was discovered and the New York Post, citing NYPD insiders, have reported that drug paraphernalia was found near the body.

Goldstein, who along with Travis Barker survived a fiery plane crash that killed four others last year, had recently finished shooting an eight-episode series for MTV about addiction, in which he opened up about his past struggles with substance abuse.

Within minutes of the news breaking, Barker's ex, Shanna Moakler, had tweeted: "My deepest condolences for DJ AM, you were a great artist and will be severely missed. My thoughts and Prayers to his family and friends."

Case File

Kenneth “Supreme” McGriff's long, strange journey led him to form a Queens-based drug ring, The Supreme Team. Raised in the Baisley Park projects of southeast Queens, McGriff was drawn to gangs and had a natural charisma that drew others to him. He took the name ‘Supreme Team’ from the Nation of Islam’s Five Percenters, whose teachings taught that the Black man was by nature divine, and in fact was the original man, the Supreme Being. Surpreme’s team flourished in the drug trade, until he was convicted and sent to prison in the late 1980s. While serving time McGriff was moved by the novels of underground legends Iceberg Slim and particularly Donald Goines. Once released from prison he became a friend and associate of music entrepreneur Irv "Gotti" Lorenzo, and re-invented himself as a movie producer with "Crime Partners," the first Goines novel to be made into a film, and featuring Snoop Dogg, Ice-T, and Ja Rule. However, his newfound career ended abruptly when he was charged and convicted for ordering deadly hits on two rivals, and sentenced to life in prison without parole.
