My Interview with J-Live

the 'Random Interviews' continue with a short chat with one of my favorites, fellow Teacher/MC J-Live. I thought I stayed busy...he wears a few more hats than I do, as a DJ and producer, and family man as well.




I remember seeing him live in like 2004 opening for GZA, and he blew me away by rapping and spinning at the same time.

We went on to do a show together in Philly when he lived out there, and now he's in Atlanta.

so here are the questions...
(part 1)

[b]Which artist has you whipped? (meaning you'll buy whatever they put out)[/b]

The Roots. Whether I like it or not. I always look forward to their
albums. Closest thing left for me to anticipating walking home from
The Wiz with a cassette in the walkman.


[b] how do you measure success in music?[/b]

For me. When enough people know love and support my music that I can support my children's children, build great things in my community,
and impact the planet not just with inspiring and enlightening
thoughts and sounds, but with endeavors that empower the so called third world.

[b] is Obama the answer?[/b]

No. There's too many questions. He is our President. OUR President.
The first time in MY lifetime I actually feel well represented in the
Executive Branch. And not just because he's black. He was the best man
for the job. He's the anti Bush. And its great having black love in
the White House and such a beautiful historic First Family. Makes me
proud.

[b] when did you realize that music was your calling...if it is :)[/b]

Tokyo Japan in the late 90s doing Club Yellow and being told it was
the illest show since Tribe Called Quest.

here's an mp3 for ya...one of my favorite J-Live jams..

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.
