Recently, I was asked by a staff member at "THE TAPE DECK "to write a piece on the influence of producer/artist J. Dilla on myself as an artist/producer.

"Neako presents the new project, TR33. Three new records and two interludes, which explain the LVLYSL & ZEBRAGANG movement. TR33 (pronounced TREE) are originally three missing tracks from the LVLZebra sessions, giving fans a soundtrack and further insight of the LVLYSL philosophy."(Courtesy of Xclusives Zone)

In a world where something as silly as beating the holy hell out of a classmate can launch you into overnight Worldstar Hip Hop super stardom, hardwork still pays off. In a field where it's much easier to throw peers under the bus and adopt an "everyman for himself" attitude.. the hungry and humble still win battles. Curtiss King's campaign for a spot on the Paid Dues 2012 bill and consequential victory remind me of the very first moon walk. No, not Michael Jackson! I mean the first moon walk...like, on the moon's surface. Neil Armstrong's walk was a small step for Man, yet one giant leap for mankind. We've watched (and we've participated! http://youtu.be/yboYRFp5R-8 http://youtu.be/Iuh2rtRJEXQ ) Curtiss King take one small step on his journey to becoming an icon, but I feel like this is a victory for the entire Inland Empire and a giant leap for independent, hardworking, DIY'ers EVERYWHERE!!!!! #Bow

Chris James , from Moreno Valley, stopped by my home studio today to work on some finishing touches for his debut album Who I Am, which drops on Valentine's Day ( What a ladies man! lol ). After our session, I sat down with Chris to ask him a couple questions about the album. Below are the transcripts :
YM = Yung Miss
CJ = Chris James
YM : Alright Chris well first off what can listeners expect to hear when they check out the album on Tuesday?
CJ : Well they will hear just alot of me giving myself to the audience. I dont think there is a song on the album that doesn't express "Who I Am" or what i'm feeling at the present time and I feel like alot of peple can relate to alot of the tracks on the album if not every song.
YM : Can we expect to hear any features on the album and did you get a chance to work with any new producers?
CJ: There is one feature & that's by my boy Theory Ole. I did get to work with alot of new and up and coming producers such as yourself ,Yung Miss as well as Leonard Jarman, Grover Richardson & David Jarman (Leonard Jarman's little brother), etc.
YM: What do you think about the future of music in the Inland Empire?
CJ: The future of music in the I.E is BRIGHT! There is alot of "untapped" talent that haven't even came “out”. They haven't even really let people hear what they can do yet..I’ve seen this first hand..Whether it be Terrence F., Theory Ole, Stevie Crooks etc...I feel like once people start to take notice that the I.E is where it’s at then it’s only gonna open the flood gates for everybody to get noticed. Everybody is doing music and almost everybody is good. Notice I said almost (chuckles). We have to have unity & that has to be #1 in order for us to get noticed.
YM: What’s next for Chris James now that the album is about to drop?
CJ: I'm about to start writing for the next album which will probably drop this summer.(July or August) Leonard (Jarman) already expressed that he'd like to do a full album with just his production so we will probably start that in March or April.
YM: Okay that’s whassup. How can all your fans, new and old, check out your music and get in touch with you?
...My album is gonna be up for download at
and last but not least my Youtube which is
YM : Alright well those are all the questions I have for you but before we end this interview would you like to give any shoutouts?
CJ: Okay..Shoutout to you, Yung Miss for helping me with the very baby stages of the creation of this album (The beginning). Shoutout to all the producers (YM: sidenote – Breeze the Beat Machine has a joint on the album as well). Shoutout to the people that supported me, like my boy Jonathan aka Jae, my parents, etc. To everyone who has supported the Chris James Movement..Thank you! It’s not gonna stop here. This is only the beginning…. so thank you.
(Jae, who was also in the studio says “Mmm He forgot to thank somebody but it’ll come to Him” then looks up at the ceiling)
CJ: Oh! & most importantly I’d like to thank the Lord for the talent he has blessed me with . Amen.
YM: (chuckles)Alright! Thank you for coming through and I can’t wait to hear the album on Valentine’s Day.
CJ: Thank you and I can’t wait for everyone to hear it.
Everyone come back to www.JooseBoxx.com on Valentine's Day to get an FREE exclusive download link to the album. For now I'mma hook yall up with an exclusive track from Chris James off of Who I Am called "Hot" ft. Theory Ole (prod. by Breeze the Beat Machine & written by myself, Yung Miss) . See yall on V-Day!

Wow man!.. This is really tough to be writing right now... but the great Whitney Houston has passed away...I'm unsure of the cause and I have heard speculations but none of that matters. What does matter is that the music world has lost one of it's most important vocalist EVER! It's so crazy.. 8 months ago I wrote a blog about her labeling her as my first musical influence and now I'm writing about her death...::sigh:: (Check out my post "Houston, We Have A PROBLEM!" HERE ) I hope the program directors over there at the Grammy's can cook up a tribute for tomorrow night's show... Unfortunate but that would be really nice...
Well... I decided to post a couple of my favorite songs from her.... Enjoy & yall try and enjoy your weekend...

Several years ago I was forwarded a Myspace (yes I said Myspace) music profile for a twin girl group named Perfect Harmony. Couple years later I had the privilege of seeing them perform at a talent show and also at an open mic in Riverside. Well now i'm glad to see that they have released a recent project.... So here is a video with updates about the group and keep a look out for an EP Review by yours truly!... Make sure to download the project HERE and check it out.
