Remembering the legendary Tina Turner.
Back in 1984, I was working at Seattle’s 1250 KFOX & part of my job was to go to this concert & review it.
Well, it was Tina Turner’s comeback show, opening up for Lionel Ritchie.
Great show with great memories that’ll last forever.
Philly native Suspens is about to drop his new single “2Pac Shakur” (Suspens Recording). RAP ATTACK DJ’s look out for it this week.
Anyone else requesting the MP3, hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Anyone catch the season finale of “Power Book?”
Although episodes 8 & 10 were leaked on YouTube, quality was soooo much better in it’s normal airing on STARZ!

DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
May 29, 2023
What is good my Hip Hop friends!?! I am back!
This time around, I give you a brand-new single from one of my favorite groups, Slum Village. This is that amazing Detroit crew originally formed by T3, Baatin and J Dilla. They are back with some more of that dope Hip Hop music we've come to expect from them.
With an album coming some time this year, their first single, produced by Young RJ, features The Dramatics along with Larry June.
The song is titled “Just Like You”, and it gives you that feel-good vibe. Coming in at a nice 106 beats per minute, the groove of the song makes you want to move to it while Young RJ and T3, along with Larry June, rock you with their smooth vocal deliveries. This song is out just in time to bump in your ride with the top down as you cruise the streets during the sunny summer days. Go get it, it is worth your time!
Slum Village will be doing their thing, live and on stage, in June out here in California at the Back to Basics show. The show also includes Havoc (Mobb Deep), Pete Rock and Czarface. Should be an amazing show!
Well, that is it for me this time!
Peace and Love!
DJ 3rd Degree
What’s more irritating than hearing someone repeating after every sentence, “Know What I’m Saying?” Someone repeating, “GYEA!”
Actually it sounds good when Spokane’s Grandmixer GMS (left) & MC Eiht say, “GYEA!”
A FUNKY FRESNO 80’s FLASHBACK
Altho I remember like it was yesterday, it’s been about 40 years touring on the road in Fresno, Cali with Connie & the late Jermaine Stewart!
Yup, the Mix-A-Lot posse was in full swing with “The Square Dance Rap!”
I am forever grateful to Terry Terry for opening the acting door for me. She was my very FIRST acting agent from Seattle. She recently passed away from cancer.
In the beginning, my own experience came from being featured in Sir Mix-A-Lot's videos. I got a lot of national attention thru that.
I decided to get an Acting agent and after doing some research, my friend Robert Brewer referred me to Terry Terry.
Terry & I hit it off so well. I quickly signed on the dotted line & then went on auditions & took improv classes thru her.
In one improv scene, I had to rescue a dying dog from a car accident. Terry noticed I had the look of a gangster, hard & menacing, but the emotions I expressed were sensitive, warm & caring, a lovable person. She compared me to the actor John Candy!
She booked me on the first short film I did, "Scratch Merchants" (pix below) starring Cynthia Geary from the hit TV show, "Northern Exposure."
I moved from Seattle to Los Angeles in 1998 and with the acting skills I learned from Terry Terry, landed roles in NBC's "ER," "HOUSE PARTY 4" & 20th Century Fox's "Kung Pow! Enter The Fist."
I LOVE YOU Terry & am forever grateful for what you did for me professionally & for our friendship. It was such a memorable time seeing you again back in 2018. Our photos together will help me cherish the memories FOREVER. (R.I.P.)

I always feel thankful, appreciative & blessed when DJ's that I helped still acknowledge where they got their start!
Big props to Seattle's DJ Topspin, one of the best in the lineup up of talented DJ's who threw down in the mix on my KCMU RAP ATTACK show. It's DJ's like him who made my show NUMBER ONE.
From my heart, "THANK YOU!" Nasty-Nes

I hope her story inspires YOU:
Altho it's been a few weeks, I’m still recovering from being at my Sifu Taky Kimura’s Memorial held back home in Seattle.
Sometimes I wonder what Bruce Lee’s ”Game Of Death” movie would’ve been like if Bruce had lived. My Sifu Taky Kimura was supposed to be one of the fighters representing Wing Chun. He had his plane ticket to Hong Kong, paid for and ready. Then Bruce passed. My Sifu too has passed. (R.I.P.)
