New J-Zone Interview at The Onion A.V. Club: Money vs. Art
So I did an interview with Nathan Rabin of The Onion A.V. Club about our favorite things besides Kim and Kanye - money and art! I was asked about some of my harshest moments professionally and financially as a musician and some stuff about my book...and yeah, it's pretty funny...and pretty humiliating in parts, but life's all about balance! It's a pretty long interview, but check it out if you have time and forward it to young, aspiring artists who may appreciate it.

Video: Trinidad James Interview with Jessie Maguire
I sat down with Trinidad James before his show in Orlando, Fl. He discusses how it feels to have the hottest record out, upcoming videos, fashion line plans, and more. Tune in every Wednesday night to WPRK 91.5fm for The Backstage Pass.
A gritty 90's style album for those who grew up on Illmatic, Midnight Marauders, Only Built for Cuban Links, Moment of Truth, and Ready to Die. Behind The Scale shows the other side of what some are glamorizing about street life and drug trade. This is unfiltered, real sh*t on tape. Some of the stories are intensly personal and Sean second-guessed including them, but if it ain't raw it ain't real. Behind The Scale is about change, transition and growing up.
Uptown XO - New song Featured in Under Armour Commercial!

Uptown XO continues to prepare for the release of his debut MMG solo album "Colour de Grey" this coming January 29th. The folks at Under Armour got a hold of the album and were so impressed they picked up the new song "Salaam" to feature in their commercial with professional freeskier Ahmet Dadali. Check out the new commercial and get ready for the world premier of XO's new single next week on MTVHive!
Black Moon's "Enta Da Stage" is one of my favorite hip hop albums of all time. I've lost that album and bought it again more times than I can even remember. When approaching a classic joint like this I try and bring something different to the table and attack the beat in a different way otherwise it's a huge disservice to the artist and song. I was able to share this with the people from Duck Down a little while back when I first recorded this, and they seemed to appreciate the effort. So, now I share this with the world.
