Ugh. Has the moron not figured it out yet? Oh wait, he's black...that's why.
Translation: I'm a racist, so I must be right.
America created and continues to support my nauseating and disgusting celebrity, even though my films kinda' profited more in foreign markets, lol, that's why I do press junkets in all these other sh-thole countries, lol, but whatevs! Ammuuuuurica!
Translation: I have never been to a country outside of america, so I am completely ignorant and have no understanding about the world. I couldn't even comprehend that a little boy in a "****hole country" would be happier than my own pathetic self.
Ugh. Sickening. More of the good ol' liberal celebrity bit "any taxes are fine as long as I can still be me(a smug celebrity)!". Yeah, implying that raising taxes and/or creating new ones(like through this new healthcare mandate) is good...what a moron. Hell, even if you do pay more out of your rich ass, what would that do to help cut wasteful spending on failed programs and policies? America already spends more on education and healthcare than anyone else, oh, but they need more!!! Nah, it can't be because they run it inefficiently, it's 'cause there's not enough money! Let's just keep feeding the machine!
Translation: How dare someone protect young children and the poor by offering them healthcare, even though most of the world is able to do this, see if we spend less money somehow that will solve all our problems.
Oh, and that f-cktard Brolin...
Says the liberal elitist scumbag.
Translation: Anyone who disagrees with me must be a scumbag, and I am so outraged by this I need to go on to a fan site and post my tirade anonymously to make me feel better.

Obviously I'm in a position where I get to speak with Jeff everyday and hear a lot of stories but I can honestly say he amazes me all the time. Having had a 30+ year career, sometimes I forget that he's been involved in music, and so many different aspects of the business, for a very long time. I wanted to share this story with you because even in my position, I still get star-struck and/or amazed talking with Jeff.
We were having breakfast a few weeks ago, (Jeff had 2 chocolate pudding cups and a cup of coffee lol) and we were talking about his mom. He was telling me that his mom never wanted to be front and center talking to press or anything like that and always kept him grounded, even at the height of JJFP. He said that they had "won an award" and there was a huge crowd waiting for him and Will at the airport and followed by a huge celebratory party being held at Jeff's mom's house. He said that in the middle of the party, his mom ran out of bread so she called him over, gave him $5 and told him to go to the corner store and buy bread. Jeff tried to protest saying, "but mom, this party is for me, we just won this big award". His mom said, "get your butt to the corner store and buy me that bread". He said it didn't matter to her that they were "famous" he needed to go and get the damn bread.
Fast forward to a few weeks later. I was looking for a particular video of him on youtube and started watching some old JJFP interviews.
I randomly stumbled upon this:
I was shocked. Jeff had literally told me this story over breakfast and to hear it be part of an acceptance speech, 20 year prior was mind boggling. I called him and said, "hey remember that story blah blah blah" and showed him the video. He laughed.
Most of you have met Jeff and know that he is extremely humble. I told Jeff that every now and again I get caught off guard because I'm not talking to Jeff, my boss, or Jeff, my friend, I'm actually talking to "THE DJ JAZZY JEFF" and this was one of those moments to for me. He laughed again and said he knows how I feel because sometimes he forgets that he's that guy too.
So I agree, he needs to write and autobiography!
I'm glad you enjoyed the Spin Doctor Q&A. It was really important for him to give back and talk to the DJ community for a little bit.

This is definitely a crowning moment for the forum. To think that the seed for this was planted in the mid-90's is pretty crazy. I wish there was time for more of our questions, but I'm glad he hit a few of them. I was happy to hear one of my questions asked, but I was even happier to hear it answered. He gave a great introspective answer on that. I actually inspired me with something I'm dealing with right now. ...crazy.
I love that he really gets what the website and forum is all about. Tim has done an amazing job over the years and there's been dozens of amazing people who've contributed to the site and graced the message boards. This is a dope moment in the website's history.

All I can say is.....wow!
I've been nagging Kev on facebook and twitter the last few days because I was so excited for this and couldn't wait to hear it. Kev - you uploaded it at the perfect time. You last tweeted me at 4:45pm my time and as soon as 5 o'clock came, I sprinted out of work and quickly hooked this up to my car so I could listen to it/watch it (eyes on the road, of course lol) on my commute home. This was very enjoyable.
I love how Jeff knows exactly how we feel from a fan's perspective. He was talking about the 1-on-1 relationship and interaction with the fans and its still surreal that he knows some of us here on a first name basis and goes out of his way to do these things for us (hookups at shows, facebook comments, music...etc). I'm so appreciative of it..
Thanks for asking about Code Red. That was probably the one question I asked that I hoped would make it on the interview. I'm with Tim on this one, I love Code Red. I love all the albums but Code Red is really a masterpiece. It's so fascinating to hear that they thought they were losing Jive's support. I'm almost baffled by it because at the time, it was only a few months after Homebase hit with Summertime and the duo was on TV every Monday night. Also, no one on hip-hop blogs/media/reviews ever mention Code Red. Jeff mentioned the clashes they had between the artistry and commercial music and it kinda makes me wonder at the end of Scream, how Will is sort of rapping like Dr. Dre/Snoop Dogg. It's pretty funny if he's subliminally mocking Jive and the commercial sound at the time.
AJ - hell of a question man. That was really thought-provoking.
Also, big thanks to everyone involved in orchestrating this. I lived vicariously through you guys and I hope there's more fan Q&A's to come. Literally - the best JJ interview ever.

I'm editing in another window as i type this. This has turned into a long interview that i really couldn't cut anything out of so i'm just gonna' upload the whole thing. I'm sure most people on here will enjoy watching the whole thing anyway.

Great chatting with you today Nicole and once again thanks for all your help!! It's been an amazing 2 days! Certainly some more highlights this time around! The interview looked great and I think at one point there were four video cameras on the go!
Chilling in Jeff's hotel room was so surreal.. Tim, Kev and I were chatting with Jeff about all things music related and he even let us hear some exclusives from an upcoming release next year (You are all in for a treat...classic Jeff)
. I even brought Caleb down to meet Jeff and he took it in his stride! He didn't want a picture with Jeff but wanted to play on my iPhone instead! I told him he'd regret that in 20 years! All in all a memorable couple of days! Great set, great people, great memories. JJFP.COM REPRESENT!!

So Jeff did another great show last night. It was good to catch up with everyone and weird to have Kev, Brakes and Tim all in the same room. Jeff did a lot more of his old school hip hop this time, so it was completely different from the Jazz cafe. He mixed in a lot of modern stuff and i loved it when he put something obscure like Phil Collins in. The crowd was going mental, we were right at the front but i would just turn around sometimes to see the whole room jumping. Only negative thing was the set up of Plan B wasnt as good as the Jazz cafe because Skillz was just squished against a wall and couldnt move around like he would on stage. We could see Jeff up close though and see what he was doing which was amazing as usual.
We didnt really get to catch up with Jeff afterwards, he was busy signing t shirts but we had a quick chat with Skillz and a few others. However as we speak i think the others are just finishing lunch with them, which sucks for me, but amazing for them. I cant wait to see the interview they have for him. Hopefully they will get some good gossip.
Anyway, thats another show done, now just need to wait until Spring haha.
The others have a few group shots of our little JJFP gang.

these are some REALLY good questions guys! Coming off some routine press, he's going to really enjoy these questions. Kev, I've asked if he wants to see the questions ahead of time and he said "Nope!". He knows you guys will ask some interesting questions. Much more thought provoking than "what can we expect from you in ABC town".
So excited to see this!

Jeff's in the process of getting ready for tour and to say he's excited is an understatement. I was with him over the weekend and he said he's looking forward to seeing you all.
We are releasing this video trailer today to announce all of the tour dates.
