Interviews available…

I use this website to uplift and support others… One way I’ve done that is by supporting their dream and giving them an avenue to be heard. Interviews….. Written, recorded and video taped for others to read, listen to and watch… Falling more and more in love with the great people from our city and the fact that we have way more thn crime and high death rate to offer. We have people here with talent. People who want to inspire. People who are living their dream even here.

When we began recording the interviews I pulled in a good friend of mine Symphani ( to conduct the interviews. She simply amazing and her burning passion for Hip Hop as well as people with dreams and ambition is the cherry on top!

Her and I have been working on a great way to keep inspiring and keep placing the great people of our city!

If you or anyone you know is doing any of those thing send them my way. I can be contacted at, simply place Interview Request in the subject line…

“Have you been reading your bible?” – Kevin Harts mom

I’m a sucka for a good interview that inspires or moves me in some way…

I am a fan of Kevin Hart, he’s cute and chocolate, nice looking tiny man! But his interview with Oprah allowed him to get personal,on a serious note. I’ve watched the interview twice and both times I have found something that moved me. This time it was his story about his mom and his first year of rent..

Check it out here:

This story spoke volumes to me. I think that all someone needs is one person in their corner to believe in them and invest in them. And that one person being none other than one of the people who gave them life is phenomenal! It is support at the highest level…

Be inspired.
Do great.
Remain epic.

The business of the month… Hair 101

Wednesday January 8,2014 I had the pleasure of going to the actual salon and getting my hair done. As some who follow my Instagram (ThatsMyJAM90) or Twitter (JodAyE_Dukes) know that I am the one who usually does my hair. I’ve often said I don’t believe in paying somebody to do something I can do myself… And that’s still true, however sometimes as a woman I want to be pampered and that’s definitely apart of being pampered…

I made an appointment with a member of Outreach 20:35 (Only the baddest glam squad/Outreach group in Flint). Her name is Tierra Bradford and she has a chair at one of Flints growing and thriving hair salons Hair 101

I got there and it was like so mellow so chill. Truth be told I’d been there before but it had been a while my old faith nail tech Tatiana Hill works there. Anyways me and Tierra talked and laughed and she Werked! (as she would say) on my hair. Dying my roots, reviving my ends color, washing, drying, and curling all of this heavy load of hair on my head! God bless her soul.. In the meantime in between time the Shops owner came in Lenisha Perry. Lenisha is a very cool very business woman. Lenisha, Tierra and I engaged in great meaningful conversation. Mainly touching the topic of business and networking. The conversation was a great one to have. It’s always amazing to see women come together and talk about something other than gossip ESPECIALLY the hair salon…

If you’re from Flint,Mi or simply visiting make an appointment or stop by Hair 101 the services they offer include:

Hair Styling
Color and Cuts
Body wraps
Make up
Pink and whites
And More!

Ciara Hunter CEO of Outreach 20:35

When you meet good people with good hearts you should want to spread the positive energy around… I saw this Young lady on Instagram Promo’n her team…. And at that point I was like “Yo I’ve got to meet her, and put up something about what she’s doing on my site”… Then I hosted a Fashion show and just so happens The outreach group she is apart of was doing Hair and some of the make up… After I seen the group of young people working hard and dedicating their time to make everyone beautiful on the outside for the show, I was sure I had to let people know how beautiful this was from the inside..So we met Ciara at Barnes& Noble in Flint,Mi on January 1st to sit and talk to her about how this all started…..Look out for the group interview coming really Soon…..

S/O to the teams graphic designer Teshia Bradford and also a former member of the team Shantelle Cordell She was the make up artist. Two very talented women!

Yonce… (UPDATED)

A few weeks ago I was hit with a surprise from my favorite female r&b artist…


She dropped her self named album on a Thursday night and when I got the text message I was full speed ahead to iTunes to download it and started listening to it NON-STOP… You hear me?! . I learned the songs in two days like all of them… Fell in love with the videos in maybe three or four days it got so real for me..

This album was dope. It shows Beyonce’s growth. Reflecting on her very first solo album all the way up to this one. You can see the change from a dating girl to a married woman. Each song gives you a different feel. This album takes you through a few different emotions. I do however advise parental advisory with this one. It’s a pretty grown project..

Here’s the video series YouTube:

Check out some of my favorite quotes from the songs below!

Pretty Hurts

Pretty hurts, shine the light on whatever’s worse. Trying to fix something but you can’t fix what you can’t see it’s the soul that needs the surgery

Plastic smiles,in denial can only take you so far


All the people on the planet working nine to five just to stay alive

I’m climbing up the walls cause all the shit I hear is boring

I’m on to you, you must be on to me

Drunkin Love

I’m sanging on the mic to my boy toy then I fill the tub up half way and ride it with my surfboard

I do say it’s the shit if I do say so myself

We woke up in the kitchen saying how the hell did this shit happen oh baby


I love your face, you love the taste. That sugar babe it melts away

Pink is the flavor, solve the riddle

I can’t wait til I get home so you can turn that cherry out

No Angel

Baby put ya arms around me tell me ima problem.

underneath this pretty face it’s something complicated

I come with a side of trouble but I know that’s why you’re staying cause you’re no angel either baby


I bought this all for you just walk my way

I sneezed on the beat and the beat got sicker

Took 45 minutes to get all dressed up we ain’t even go make it to this club

Take all of me, I just wanna be the girl you like. The kind of girl you like is right here with me


I cooked this meal for you naked, so where da hell you at?

Wish that you were me, so you could feel this feeling

Sometime I wanna walk in ya shoes do the type of things that I never ever do

I look damn good I ain’t lost it

And I love making you jealous but don’t judge me


Let me take this off while you watch me, that’s mass appeal

Rock right up to the side of my mountain climb until you reach my peak baby, peak baby, peak

I do it like it’s my profession I gotta make a confession

We’re so much more than pointless fixtures, Instagram pictures


On my mind, up past my bedtime. No rest in the kingdom.

Stop making a big deal outta the little things cause I got big deals and I got little things. Got everything I’m asking for but you


Your love is bright as ever, even in the shadows

Nobody sees what we see. They’re just hopelessly gazing

In the darkest night I search through the crowd. Your face is all that I see I give you everything

I love him like XO


Respect that, bow down bitches

I took some time to live my life, but don’t think I’m just his little wife

I woke up like this, I woke up like this we flawless

Mama taught me good home training, my daddy taught me how to love my haters

My man make me feel so got damn fine!


And when I’m standing In this mirror after all these years what I’m viewings a little different from what ya eyes show ya. I guess I didn’t see myself before ya

And I thought I could live without ya.. Hey hey.. Nothing I know can break us down


But heaven couldn’t wait for you

I fought for you the hardest. It made em the strongest

I just can’t stand to see you leaving

You showed me love was all you needed


Sometimes these walls seem to cave in on me but when I look in ya eyes I feel alive

Come on baby won’t you hold on to me

Each day I feel so blessed to be looking at you..

My heart beats so damn quick when you say my name

ThatsMyJAM90 presents: Pierre Gabrielle “League of OUR OWN” 10 year Anniversary Hoodie

Years ago I had the pleasure of meeting Nate Bell. Nate was and is the definition of a gentlemen. Very well mannered. And then I met is partner, Kalon Williams. Kalon seemed so serious he seemed to be the complete opposite of Nate. As time went on and I got to know him He was just as cool (If not cooler jk). In meeting them and becoming family, I started to support Pierre Gabrielle. These guys have been blessed enough to reach their 10 year anniversary with their brand… What better way to kick it off?!….

In celebration of our 10 year anniversary we are releasing the ‘LEAGUE of OUR OWN’ 10 Year Anniversary Hoody.

Take a picture it last longer…

it’s a photo shoot girl it’s a photo shoot!

Earlier this year I was planning to do some big things (still working towards it) nonetheless I needed a photographer to make something’s happen…. I know a bunch of them. So looking for one to use myself should’ve been easy, right?…. Yea NOT even easy. When you’re looking for someone to do work for you it is much different, you look at their work a little more critical then you would if you were getting them for someone other than yourself….

In conversation with my homeboy Craig I was telling him I’d wished he could’ve been in our hometown Flint,Mi to do my shoot.. Craig’s work is amazing…. He says to me “Use Steve”… I’m like YAS! (in thee most ratchet voice I can ponder up).. Steve is DOPE, I’d seen his work and loved it… Craig and Steve’s work is good enough to be in any big name magazine out HANDS DOWN

So Steve and I linked up… I’ve got to tell you, I was so nervous the day of the shoot. I was shaking like a stripper… Steve’s skills were different. He got photos of me doing my normal everyday gestures. You can hardly call that “Posing for the camera” …it was like taking pictures while checking the scenery and catching up with an old friend… No really Steve and I went to Flint Northwestern High School together before I went to Flint Southwestern High school… So things came natural and I will say when ever I did try to pose it felt so rehearsed…..

Great pictures are great pictures… That was just one part of this post…. Let’s talk about being Beauty Marked

Once I knew I was going to be having a photo shoot I instantly knew Ranesha Cavette was going to do my make-up. I didn’t care how early I had to be there. I needed her make-up expertise… I’d been following her work for sometime via Instagram… She’s great at what she does.. Not only that but she puts in serious work and investment in her gift… Most people who I knew that did make-up just did it on the side or as a plan B… This woman takes it seriously and once I seen her drive and ambition I needed an excuse to have her do my make-up but this wasn’t an excuse…. It was a great reason….

Needless to say this particular day was one of the most amazing days of my life… And what better way to remember it but the pictures… You know what they say…

Take a picture… It last longer

Let’s have this moment together…

In life we have choices… Plenty of choices..

Do or Don’t

Red or Blue

Paper or Plastic

And the choices we make pave the lane that is perfectly created for us… Those choices write the black words on the white pages of our life story…

At this point in life do you feel like you’ve made the right the choices?

This is the question I just asked myself, like no for real I got in the house took off my coat and that’s the question the formed in my head.. And as I began to think about it I cried. Mascara running down my cheeks, face turning red, and eyes mad glossy cry… I feel like I just been settling and being comfortable… There’s so many things I want to do that I talk myself out of and label it

Common Sense

Little did I realized I’d boxed myself in to the opinions of people who won’t ever sign any of my checks… Shame on me… So in a matter of minutes I made a choice… A choice to go for what it is I really want… A choice to NEVER SETTLE I felt so much weight lift off of me…

So now it’s your turn… You try… Do the things you desire, the things you dream of.. Don’t box yourself in and don’t let nobody else box you in…
