I'm bouncing over here, Jamie! My dance groove is eerily like yours. AND I'm drinking fruit punch flavored Gatorade (flu-induced dehydration's a pain in the butt). Coincidence? I think not.

You are dope. I'm a crate digger and I listen to everything that sounds like a sample. On that Ashley's Roachclip track my fave sample has to be Run's House by Run-DMC

i wish you had your own tv or radio station, or something live for all your viewers. we all love what your doing, and honestly its better than all the crap you find on BET, MTV,etc and it gives much more fame to the music itself and past artists who have helped make music as good as it is today for all listeners!

Thank you so much for all this you've put together in the videos etc. That Brand Nubian and Jean Carne finally made me sign up so I could leave a thank you! You're the best for doing all this. I just linked up to your videos off a music forum off fb. I'm playing catch up now!!

Damian 4 years ago

Just a suggestion.... That would be really cool if in your next video you can show the DMX sample for Let Me Fly, it's pretty exotic. Well I think so.
