  2. I came on this board everyday from the lost and found era all the way up until i took a bit of a break after my pops passed in late 2016 from his 10 year battle of dementia (i think that introducing him to old school hip hop helped him extend his life to 82 years old when he finally passed i really wanted him to meet will and jeff just to thank them on the impact they make on all our lives) and trump was elected that was the darkest moment of my life, playing jjfp and the classic hip hop has kept my life going throughout my life's struggles i lost my closest uncle skip in feb 2020 right before covid came, then over the last year with being on locked down in this covid era i've been bumping the classics, checking the board more, watching the jeff lunch breaks on social media, reflecting on my life, and i must of recorded like 100+ songs on youtube (search my name GRACIA MILLER and you'll find me) i'm praying that when all this crap is over especially after justice for george floyd after that vicious incident maybe the world will be a better place for our future generation and i'll tour the world with jjfp and all the legends before my time is up on this earth i've been thinking about my legacy at 36 years old now especially after we lose 3 hip hop greats this month(dmx, black rob, shock g), JAZZY JEFF FRESH PRINCE REAL HIP HOP FOREVER BLESSINGS
  3. yes lsg is one of the realest groups ever, in 2006 when gerald levert passed it just shocked my world just imagine the music he'd be making today with them and his pops eddie levert if he was still with us, long live keith sweat and johnny gill real soul music needs to be celebrated, put away with that bubblegum music digital underground sex packets album, everybody knows humpty dance but this album was so legendary it always blew my mind, shock g's passing is probably one of the hardest since gerald levert damn this month hurts(dmx, black rob) it was like how we lost james brown after him in 2006, too many greats gone, i'm gonna have a hard time sleeping tonight
  4. hey 3cookies, i remember you jjfp sis, brings back memories of when all of us jjfp heads were on here during lost and found let's pray this covid-19 world gets back in order soon enough and jjfp drop another classic album the world needs it, my condolences on your loss, i lost my pops and uncle in the last 5 years and i'm 36 now still working on my shadow dream of being a classic hip hop artist like jjfp and all the greats we've been losing all the greats like dmx, black rob, and tonight as i'm typing shock g passed just now life is precious i'm trying to carry the torch god bless us all, real hip hop forever...
  5. yeah this one hurt i always found him underrated life story is a classic album
  6. well he must be the goat if lost and found is his worst album it's better than 90% of most rappers best albums, everybody talks about summertime but you could play homebase from start to finish it's a legendary album way better than his 7th album....
  7. he is staying active with his music even throughout this chaotic year plus of our lives we almost lost him to covid as well, thank god for his recovery and still touching souls, that dmx tribute yesterday touched my soul, jeff you are loved
  8. i've been thinking about ice cube a lot too lately especially since what's been going on with dmx, he's one of the greatest artists ever we need to celebrate our living legends more often, give them their flowers while they're alive as well i believe nwa should be near the top always just like jjfp they're different moods but they've been my go tos for the last 25 years
  9. to add to my thoughts what i was saying yesterday on dmx the same could be said about phife dawg his music changed my life many times too real hip hop will never die no matter what happens people will be studying about this timeless music many centuries after we're all gone, forever inspired
  10. Congrats JJFP, I was only 2 when this dropped haha I wasnt really digging too much into hip hop until I was 12 in 97 but looking back this should be up there with all the great debuts like Nas Illmatic, BDP Criminal Minded, and LL's Radio timeless music, great lyrics, beats, and straight JJFP storytelling hip hop
  11. Great article and it shows the impact of JJFP to the hip hop industry, but sadly don't get the full respect they deserve to this day, such a shame that they never got nominated for the hall of fame yet....
  12. Jazzy Jeff is doing a trib to DMX on IG and Youtube right now
  13. around the time that i was planning to see this movie my uncle skip passed away and covid had hit so i couldn't see it in the theater but i saw it finally the week before christmas when i bought it from amazon prime video digitally, not as good as the earlier bad boys but still one of the top movies of the century, will and martin are like shaq and kobe...
  14. I wouldn't mind if Will does an inspirational book, I'd prefer if he stuck with talking about his entertainment career but he has one of the wisest minds, sure some of his social media stuff is a bit outlandlish sometimes but who's perfect? His whole career is in the spotlight, none of us are perfect, I'm sure if we all here had that much fame people would criticize us too.... I know if I look back at some posts I made on here 10 years ago at this date I might find it hypocritical too...Btw for all those talking ish about his marriage with Jada how many hip hop artists in the entertainment been married for almost 25 years in the industry? Most entertainers been married like 3 times in that span at the minimum...People rave about how big of a power couple that Jay-Z and Beyonce are but they weren't even married half of that time and they've had their drama too....
  15. I know over the years there's been a lot of talk about DMX's addiction struggles and it caused many of his so called fans to abandon him until yesterday when he passed away where a lot of the fans want to jump on the bandwagon and play his music for the first time in 20 years it seems but he's one of my favorite of all time, I basically felt everything this man ever dropped, he's been a true man of God and the messages he delivered have been theraputic for me and my ups and downs in life, I haven't struggled with addiction but I've been dealing with the mental health aspect for over a decade I'm bold enough to admit, I reach out for help and the struggle is real. For me as a true hip hop head I've been listening to him since the start of his career when he appeared on LL Cool J's "4, 3, 2, 1" when I was 12 years old in the 7th grade and when he released his "It's Dark and Hell Is Hot" CD in Spring of 1998 after I turned 13 years old it was one of the first hip hop CD I ever owned, it's a top 5 hip hop debut album to me dead or alive that you could bump from start to finish, the popular songs like "Ruff Ryders Anthem", "How's It Going Down" and "Get At Me Dog" are most memorable to fans but "Let Me Fly" and "I Can Feel It" really penetrate my soul. After that masterpiece classic debut album he dropped many more great masterpieces but the album that sticks out to me the most was "The Great Depression" in October of 2001 it was released around the time of Aaliyah's death and 9*11*2001 so it was prophetic in a poetic sense my favorite song from that record will always be "I Miss You" because my grandmother Claire was getting sick with cancer around the time of the album release and she passed away on December 16, 2001 and the video for the song was released I forever am grateful that he released that video and song as a single to me it's as real as Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On" and James Brown "Papa Don't Take No Mess", real music from the spirit, that encouraged me to take writing my own music more serious than just a fun hobby I did at school with my friends, I dedicate my career in music to my late grandmother and now the late DMX and other true artists. Now on deeper in his career in the summer of 2006 DMX released his first non Def Jam album "Year Of The Dog Again..." after 5 straight #1 albums (even pop artists like Britney Spears didn't do that, very impressive from a gritty hip hop artist from the street life to me he's the Malcolm X of hip hop, a conflicted individual with spiritual insight), even though it fell short of going #1 on the charts by a small margin to a Now compilation album it's near the top of my all time favorite hip hop albums since 2000 especially for the song "Lord Give Me A Sign" and the deep album cuts "Life Be My Song" and "Goodbye", it had a deeper meaning for me because the winter of 2006/2007 was when I was going in and out of the hospital getting mental health treatment for the first time in my life that music got me through and pushed me to keep going and I was motivated to keep emceeing, I had a bad reaction from a staph infection, and on top of that I was heartbroken from the losses of 2 musical icons in Gerald Levert and James Brown and the relationship with somebody that I thought I was gonna marry one day(we're friends today but we can't be nothing more than that because you can forgive but you can't truely forget)went sour since she judged me for my mental health struggles like many do because of the stigma but I realised who my real circle of close peeps were after that moment in my life. Now 5 years later in 2012 X dropped his comeback album in that fall called undisputed, I was praying for a big comeback even though it was an independent release I felt he was the real hip hop artist that could revive commercial hip hop again from the fake rappers like Cash Money and Rick Ross among countless others but the album was a commercial flop his lowest selling album but the album hit hard the single "I Don't Dance" featuring Machine Gun Kelly to me felt like it would be the 2012 summer smash cause it felt like a hard hitting anthem but it felt sad that most his fans basically abandoned him like so many of the great hip hop artists(obviously my man KRS One has dropped at least 15 albums in the last 20 years none went gold which proves hip hop truely is dead cause this man is the epitome of real hip hop besides the handful like DMX who join the realest like Pac, Jam Master Jay, Aaliyah, Left Eye, and Heavy D in hip hop heaven now) we don't celebrate the great hip hop artists while they're alive the GOAT LL Cool J has been waiting damn near 15 years for the Rock and Roll hall of fame, no offense to Biggie and Jay Z but they damn well ain't near his level. Anyway enough with my rant but to me the heart of "Undisputed" that touched my soul was the deep album cuts "The Prayer", "Slippin Again", and "Head Up" after I was hospitalized again that summer of 2012 for my mental health because I was heartbroken over my father's oncoming Alzheimers and dementia issues that forced my family to put him in a nursing home after new years of 2012, those songs really got me through and helped me write my most motivated song to date "I Never Give Up" and if I ever win a Grammy one day I'm thanking DMX for changing my life so many times, I salute you Ruff Ryder OG, REST IN PEACE, 1970-2021 FOREVER, GOD BLESS, ONE LOVE FROM BIG TED....
