Once upon a time I lived in Lansing, MI …. Home of Spartans 💚
I met a lot of really cool people. And the artist known as Billey Madison just so happen to be one of those people. He was cool with an ex of mine. And naturally I heard his music and was subjected to the Sex, Money, Education (SME) movement. Back then he had this dope song “wassuuuup” even then I thought he had a chance to be something..
Fast forward to today… Billey Madison dropped a mixtape a while back “Billey Madison LP” on datpiff.. I got a hold of it today and automatically fell in love! .. The samples? Fire.. The word play? FIRE… The whole Mixtape? FIYAH 🔥… Easily on my “Waiting Room to heaven” playlist with the David Aaron track I posted about..
Last night I was granted the special opportunity to get an exclusive listen to a Local Artists music… And when I say I was amazed at how dope it is.. I was like
Thank you Music Gawds!
Formerly known as “Justin Daye”, Flint native has decided to release music under his actual name David Aaron. This song “No Good” is just something David wanted to release to share with the people who’s been anticipating his new material. Over the summer, he’s been taking his time to expand his musical abilities sonically and conceptually. David is still working on his solo LP.
Monday 9.8.14 I was on my lunch break and I received a phone call… From a young man from Spotlight Radio.. Sunny Freeman
Sunny was calling to talk to me about my website and also to offer me the grand opportunity to be featured on his live podcast. And I accepted. It was such an honor to be noticed for what I love to do.
I was very nervous during the interview. Though nobody on this earth knows me better thn I do, I was still shaking like a strippa on the other end of the phone while Sunny asked me questions….
My interview starts right after the “Hottest in the city” track which is pretty hot if I do say so myself…
I do owe Roneeka Simone Brown an apology for not remembering her first name when talking about the play this Saturday! I always see her name I’d just heard someone call her R. Simone Brown.. I apologize..
Thank you goes to Sunny Freeman and spotlight radio for the opportunity
In September 2013 I transferred all of my post to my own domain from my blogspot account.
On September 12th 2013 I wrote my first new post on ThatsMyJAM90.com … Titled
Don’t knock the hustle
That day I had no idea that I would be at the place that I am now…
The purpose of this site was decided to be for dreamers and goal accomplishers.. I have a real love and appreciation for those who work hard for their dream and those who are very passionate for what they do. It’s something about the sparkle ✨ in someone’s eyes when they talk about what they love. So I decided to use my site to give them some exposure as well as spread some positivity around… No shade to other blog sites because I read some good gossip from time to time myself I just don’t want to spread it.
Since I’ve started I’ve been blessed to meet many people and get to know them and their dream. Most in which I’ve kept as friends and others I still do business with … Writing is something that allows me an outlet my site gives me a place to say what I want how I want when I want… And to me that important… The interviews I conduct with people are the most fulfilling thing about the site. As I said before getting to know people’s dream and goals is something you can put a price on.
Right now I thank God for the 8,000 plus views I have gotten in this year. To some that isn’t a lot but to a woman such as myself it means the world 🌍…
This is only the beginning… Even greater things to come

As of this Thursday I began to see this photo of a Nicki Minaj. Its her album cover apparently.. And directly after I began to see spoofs put out mimicking the photo…
And then I seen one that stuck out like a sore thumb compared to the others
I don’t know how anyone could see these two artist as comparable on any level… Let see here:
Lauryn Hill made music for black queens. She spoke to people’s souls. Lauryn was undeniably talented . The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill went platinum more times then you can count on one hand.. One album went platinum multiple times..
Nicki Minaj is a woman with a little lyrical content, with sex appeal and a body that will sell an atheist some religion.. Not one project of hers is considered timeless but it’s well with in its time. It’s does enough to keep her on and some of it is worth a listen on a regular day but most of it is used for the club scene..
With all that being said
There’s not ever a reason to put those two in the same category, Nicki Minaj ain’t tryna educate nobody. And if she is not in the same light as Lauryn Hill. She is trying to sell an album Period. Though she could do it dressed more conservatively, she took the provocative route. Sex does sell. And men across the world will purchase the hard copy to do impure things with the cover.. It’s all a marketing scheme.. Unfortunately artist now aren’t into the long term or longevity of timeless talent filled projects. They tryna get a first week sell record at all cost even if it means compromising the morals that they may or may not have and calling it art.. At the end of the day I say let the woman be great in her very own way… And keep the legendary work of Lauryn Hills music and talent out of it. It’s nothing to be Deep about here people… All surface work shawty
When I was young I read a lot, wrote poetry… I would’ve been a totally different person had I not been expose to these things… I’m not saying I’m going to change the world, but I guarantee that I will spark the brain that will change the world..- Tupac Shakur
These are sound bites that one of my favorite rappers Wale used on 11-1-11 Theory. Taken from different interviews from a great rapper Tupac Shakur.. Growing up we I lived in a house divided, my older brother was for Michigan and I was For Michigan State. And when it came to music he made his choice Biggie and I made mine Tupac Shakur.
Here’s my disclaimer though Biggie was a great artist as well however I liked Tupac. I was extremely young I mean like 6 years old when he died. I followed his work though, from the music to the movies. To this day I can’t watch Juice without Bishop giving me chills… This part specifically is one of my favorite: http://youtu.be/Cj2hBPsoNpg
Poetic Justice weaseled it’s way into being one of my all time favorite movies to watch. Tupac a part as Lucky was phenomenal.
Once I graduated from Flint Southwestern Academy back in 2008 I paid small homage to Tupac legacy. With his hit I get Around being on of my favorite songs, when my name was called and it was my turn to grace the stage with my presence for my diploma I did the dance he did in the video ( lmbo)

This man was a genius. He educated himself well on all issues and things that arise in our day to day lives that we ignore. His legacy will forever live on even though he’s went on. Every since I saw the Breakfast Club interview from June 24th 2014 with Angela Martinez and she spoken unreleased interview she has with him I’ve been listen to his interviews and music heavily. I even stumbled across this on Keke Palmers Instagram how Tupac felt about being a role model :http://instagram.com/p/pH94ypErg5/
