5 at 5 with J.S.Free

Who are you?
    I'm an emcee who hails from southern california. I go by the name of "J.S.Free" but nicknames like freezer and just simply free get tossed around a lot. my real nam's Jeff though and I'm currently working on an album under the alias of "An'Ciet Free" pronounced aint shit free and the album's gonna be called "And I'm a Broke Mutha Fucka", look out for that.

What is your biggest motivation/inspiration?
    I think my dad's my biggest inspiration to pursue music. He used to be a DJ for several radio stations back in the day and i remember hanging out at the stations in the booth where they'd record and just feeling so comfortable behind a mic like that. He always used to pick apart music for me as a kid and the way he'd describe it got me really into the behind the scenes stuff.

When did you first realize you were talented in your craft?
    Probably in high school during lunch when all the rappers would gather in the cypher and just freestyle. There were a few emcees i looked up to in that circle who gave me props for my rhymes and it was sort of a wake up call to my writtens. Cause if they were feeling my off the head rhymes, i knew i could blow people away with what i could write down.

Where can fans see/hear more of your work?
    I have a bandcamp with my newest effort on there called "California Growth" and a mixtape of random old tracks called "Traces of Anthrax" as well. I also have a music myspace with some tracks on guys can check that out here: or also you can add me on facebook to get some exclusive tracks and beats i only share on there, i'm under the name "An'Ciet Free."

Why do you refuse to give up?
    I refuse to give up because i have too many people who believe i have what it takes to make it and if i did quit, i'd not only be letting myself down but all the people who got me where i am today. I've been doing this for about 10 years now and to quit would seem like a slap in the face to myself with all the progress I've made so far.

The end of the Breakfast Club is near

The Breakfast Club has been on air for 9 years this month, and is going strong with ratings, engagement, and seems to be adding new markets every month...but I think the end is near. I sound crazy right? I know you're thinking, Tammy how and why would you think that a successful morning show would have it's future in the balance? Well, there are a couple of reasons, let's go through them. I mean this could all be in my head and I’m projecting, or I could have some legitimate points and the near future will tell. Shock jock radio value going down - The Breakfast Club has been known for it's shock jock style of radio for years. Charlemagne says the most outlandish things in interviews, creates false narratives that he doesn't even agree with for hot takes, and Envy always goes against the grain and disagrees with the masses on any given topic, just to disagree. Podcasting is huge right now, put five people in a room and at least three of them have a podca

15 Black women that need to host SNL

Saturday Night Live has been around for 45 years this fall and has had a series of hosts, of all ethnicities, ages, and entertainment occupations. They've had hosts that are comedians, actors, singers, rappers, and more. Now, while the diversity has been decent...I would love to see more black women as hosts. I've compiled a list of black women I think would do a damn good job at hosting the late night show. Let's get started shall we... Tracee Ellis Ross  - Tracee is a no brainer and should be at the top of everyone's list when thinking of who should host when they are doing the planning over at NBC. Tracee has perfect comedic timing, which we've seen time and time again on Girlfriends, and now on Black-ish we’ve seen her transform into Rainbow Johnson, and also into the other smaller roles they play when they have episodes within their episodes, if that makes sense. Her personality is playful and fun, which is evident through her Instagram. So, she’s

Grown-ish is a far cry from A Different World

When it was announced that Black- ish ,  the hit ABC sitcom about an affluent African American family doing their best to immerse their kids in the their ethnic culture while still enjoying the fruits of their labor, would be getting a spinoff following the oldest daughter, Zoe Johnson, as she headed to college people were somewhat excited. When it was pegged to be an updated and more current version of the hit series A Different World people were more than excited and the show was highly anticipated. We were expecting to see Zoe navigate life as a college freshmen, out of the sheltered and, low key white bread, lifestyle. We were  anticipating  seeing her explore more of her life after highschool, then it aired… Now, don’t get me wrong, I like Grown- ish , I think it’s entertaining, but it’s a far cry from A Different World. I didn’t expect the show that be identical to A Different World, mainly since Zoe wasn’t attending an HBCU, so there’s that, but I think the show is mis
