Every day I feel blessed to have this blog thanks to you fans and DJ Premier ofc. And I love to share that feeling with my friends. I’ve done it in the past a few times and this time is no other. It’s nothing related with DJ Premier but with gim this one time. Here’s a new video clip by a personal friend of mine. His name is Juba Zaki, he’s original from Crown Heights, Brooklyn, East New York. He’s a guy that travels all around the world with almost nothing, trying to meet new people and just enjoying earth. Feeding from the love of all kind of people. He’s now found his home in Belgium. As you know, living is expensive. So if you feel the track, feel free to buy it for only 1 euro to support my mans ass. It’s a hard world outside and he could use your support. You can find the links under text. But only if you feel him. If you ever see him in your city, ask him for a hip hop story. It’s crazy if you live that era. Here’s his bio:
Juba has been developing his style of music throughout incarnations. In this life it’s has been recognized as a folk style commonly known as Hip-Hop. As a child of the ’70s his church upbringing was mirrored by Hip-Hop which was a world he delved into while attending elementary school in East New York, Brooklyn, NYC. The trumpet (his first instrument) also quenched his musical thirst and encouraged technique in beatboxing. After graduating high-school in 1992 and being kicked out of his family’s home shortly thereafter Juba became a nomad. He has hitch-hiked the US several times living in many cities (Atlanta, Florence SC, Seattle WA,Santa Cruz Ca, Portland Me, etc.) all the while sharpening his skill and ear with local musicians and MC’s. The recording of his debut solo project finds him ‘across the pond’ working with producer Pascal Paulus in Brussels, Belgium.
