I Miss Ja Rule!

I miss you Ja Rule, and I apologize. I thought good Hip Hop and R&B would be the norm in the future. I took Bad Boy, Murder Inc, So So Def, The Def Squad, as well as the Wu Tang Clan, NWA, BDP, Public Enemy and all the other 90’s Hip Hop and R&B groups... Read more »

Analog or Digital! The beginning or the ending of the vinyl disc jockey.

When you are djing and there is a skip in the record you can just move the needle. This has been my reasoning for continuing to use real vinyl records to rock the party. I always have the same recurring nightmare with digital djing. One day I am djing for President Obama and he and... Read more »

Kanye West Chicago's Big Brother.

It seems the message in Rap music has gotten lost. I don’t think that when most rappers were toddlers and early adolescents they wanted a Harem, racks on racks on racks, or 170 pair of tennis shoes while they drove in their rented Bugattis’. NO! They just wanted to have the freshest lyrics and be... Read more »
