WAKE IT UP!!

It’s always a GREAT DAY to pay HOMAGE to the Queen of Hip Hop Soul, Mary J. Blige!  Remember MTV Unplugged? It was an acoustic live show on MTV that gave a DIFFERENT spin on an artist’s album.  WAY BACK WHEN, Uptown Records under the helm of Andre Harrell was the 1st BLACK label to ever have their own SHOWCASE, and of course Mary J. Blige was on the roster and TORE THE HOUSE DOWN!  Let’s go back to her UPBEAT version of ‘Reminisce’! Continue reading WAKE UP JAM: #MaryJBlige ‘Reminisce’ #MTV Uptown Unplugged [vid]

Mariah-dj saved-thegamutt

WAKE IT UP!! I was trying to  think of a song we have not JAMMED to here on THE GAMUTT, and this lil’ ditty from Mariah Carey’s ‘Glitter’ project popped into mind.  Of course it’s a REMAKE, but MC put her stamp on it and brought along some HIP HOP FLARE to make it fresh–for the time period.  Let’s go back to a live performance of MC’s ‘Last Night A DJ Saved My Life’ with Fabolous, Busta Rhymes and DJ Clue!!

Now what a way to wake up than with an Aaliyah JAM.  Today, Aaliyah Dana Haughton would have been 39 years old!  Hard to believe it’s been that long that she left this Earth, right?

WAKE UP JAM: #MichaelJackson ‘Will You Be There?’

mi-be there-thegamutt

WAKE IT UP!!

Today, we celebrate the LIFE and LEGACY of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr!  I think of some of his profound words:

“These are revolutionary times. All over the globe men are revolting against old systems of exploitation and oppression, and out of the wombs of a frail world new systems of justice and equality are being born. The shirtless and barefoot people of the land are rising up as never before. “The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light.”

These are indeed revolutionary times… After reading this, I was inspired to write this post and this song came to mind–Michael Jackson’s ‘Will You Be There’. Continue reading WAKE UP JAM: #MichaelJackson ‘Will You Be There?’
