Born and raised in St. Louis, Spontaneous Mixx has always been a music enthusiast. Even as an adolescent, when most his age were just listening to music, Spontaneous was keen on observing production styles and musical influences. He became interested in the art of mixing songs while still in high school and started learning to spin in 2000 when a close friend bought a set of turntables. In the early 2000s, Spontaneous began subcontracting work for a local DJ company, and taking random gigs with other DJ friends until the mid 2000s when he started to venture out on his own.

At the beginning of his mix-show career, Spontaneous was a hip-hop DJ, but has since evolved to appeal to a larger audience.  He now spins the hottest top40 hits, mixed with electronic and pop music.  He is, as his namesake suggests, a very spontaneous DJ, in that he does not perform pre-practiced, pre-arranged mix sets, and no one night sounds like the other.

Singer Joe Cocker Passes

(CNN) — Joe Cocker, the British blues-rock singer whose raspy voice brought plaintive soul to such hits as “You Are So Beautiful” and the duet “Up Where We Belong,” died Monday after a battle with lung cancer. He was 70.

Cocker’s performing career spanned some 50 years, from Woodstock, where he sang the Beatles’ “With a Little Help From My Friends,” to the digital-music era. He had tour dates scheduled well into 2015.

“Goodbye and God bless to Joe Cocker from one of his friends peace and love,” tweeted Beatles drummer Ringo Starr.

Cocker began as a singer in England at the same time as the Beatles, with whom he was often linked. He played pubs across the country in a series of rock bands before he and his Grease Band recorded “With a Little Help From My Friends” in 1968 with Jimmy Page, Steve Winwood and others.

Joe Cocker: From Woodstock to digital musicJoe Cocker: From Woodstock to digital music

The song became a No. 1 hit in England and propelled him to Woodstock, where his passionate live version was a festival highlight and launched his U.S. career.

Cocker scored another major success in the early 1970s with “Mad Dogs and Englishmen,” a live album and concert film.

“Up Where We Belong,” his duet with Jennifer Warnes from the movie “An Officer and a Gentleman,” was Cocker’s biggest U.S. hit, topping the Billboard singles charts in 1982. It also won him a Grammy, and the Oscar for best original song.

Cocker was known for his spasmodic movements on stage, where he often flailed his arms as he sang. His distinctive moves, he said, were almost accidental.

“I never played organ or piano or guitar, so it was more out of frustration and me just trying to impersonate in a way,” Cocker told the Broward-Palm Beach New Times in 2012. “I did it subconsciously. People mistook for me being ill, like I had palsy. I’m not nearly so demonstrative now, but I still have my own way of feeling the rhythm.”

Cocker also had lesser hits with covers of torch classic “Cry Me a River,” Traffic’s “Feeling Alright,” the Boxtops’ “The Letter” and the Beatles’ “She Came in Through the Bathroom Window.”

In the 1980s his witty cover of Randy Newman’s “You Can Leave Your Hat On,” was featured in the erotic drama “9 1/2 Weeks” and became a strip-tease anthem.

The singer told the Daily Mail in 2013 that by the 1970s his descent into drugs and alcohol had become so severe that he sometimes forgot the lyrics to songs.

“If I’d been stronger mentally, I could have turned away from temptation,” Cocker said. “But there was no rehab back in those days. Drugs were readily available, and I dived in head first. And once you get into that downward spiral, it’s hard to pull out of it. It took me years to get straight.”

He credited his wife, Pam, with helping him get sober.

“It was Pam who helped me get myself back together,” he said. “She made me think positively. I was very down on myself. She made me realize people still wanted to hear me sing, and convinced me I could escape the downward spiral.”

In 2012 he released the album, “Hard Knocks.” That year he talked to NPR about the project and his love of his life in Colorado — despite the harsh winters.

“I embrace the winter these days,” he said in the interview. “The best thing to do is get a big house. If you are going to have cabin fever, have a big cabin. I walk on a regular basis, I have a couple of dogs. The house tucks right into the mountains. I literally feel I have become a mountain man over these past couple of years.”

Musicians of all ages and genres took to Twitter to pay tribute.

“So sad to hear about Joe Cocker. What an entertainer. One of a kind voice. Rock won’t ever sound the same,” tweeted “Glee’s” Kevin McHale.

50 Cent Inks $78 Million Underwear Deal

50centdeal

 

Frigo RevolutionWear is an underwear brand that 50 Cent has been supporting for a while now; 50 hosted their launch party earlier this year.  Fellow New York celebrities Derek Jeter and Carmelo Anthony reportedly have stakes in Frigo as part owners. The brand announced a partnership with 50, Derek Jeter, Carmelo Anthony, and Timbaland on its Facebook page a few days ago. Frigo has not confirmed the monetary amount of the deal with 50, or what the deal exactly entails as of yet.

In an interview with Seth Meyers last night (Dec. 15), 50 Cent says that since women “spend so much on lingerie, [Frigo underwear] is the right project for men.” 50 Cent says that the underwear was designed before his involvement, and that they haven’t had to do any promotions for the underwear until now.

Frigo, which sells underwear for $100 a pair, seeks to “revolutionize the underwear industry by offering men optimal comfort, moisture control and support, with style and practicality in mind,” according to its website.

Producer Jermaine Dupri Loses His Atlanta Mansion To Foreclosure

JS1_0220

 

ATLANTA — He tried for years to keep his northwest Atlanta mansion. But Jermaine Dupri has lost his former home to foreclosure, according to Fulton County, Georgia, legal notices.

The producer, songwriter and performer owes $2.5 million on the 9,441-square-foot home but is unable to make the monthly payments, according to a mortgage foreclosure notice. The property is valued at nearly $3.7 million, Fulton tax records showed.
“The debt secured by said Deed to Secure Debt has been and is hereby declared due because of, among other possible events of default, non-payment of the monthly installments on said loan,” the legal notice states. “The debt remaining in default, this sale will be made for the purpose of paying the same and all expenses of this sale, including attorney’s fees (notice of intent to collect attorney’s fees having been given).”
The Atlanta native helped launch the careers of such artists as Kris Kross and Da Brat and previously dated Janet Jackson. On Tuesday night, Dupri joined Usher on stage at Atlanta’s Philips Arena. But in recent years, Dupri’s money woes have made headlines.
In May 2013, SunTrust Bank filed suit against Dupri and his So So Def Productions for about $1.9 million, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution previously reported. Later that year, Dupri filed a response, claiming the bank changed the terms of the loan, leaving him with “unachievable payment terms” and fighting state and federal tax liens.

Foreclosure proceedings were initiated in 2011 on the home, but a planned auction in May of that year was canceled at the last minute. Dupri’s home was advertised for foreclosure again in December 2012, according to records in the Fulton County Daily Report. But it never sold.
Earlier this year, a former road manager for Dupri filed suit against him seeking four years of overtime pay, the AJC reported.
Dupri lived in the six-bedroom home for about 10 years. The 19-room home has nine bathrooms, according to property records.
It was not known late Wednesday whether Dupri’s home had been auctioned.

New Music: “Right Now” It’s Wood Ft Colin Drew on King Of Twelve Recordings

As a DJ I’m obviously always on the lookout for good music, and about two hours ago a gem landed in my lap.  By way of the new King Of Twelve Recordings based out of Saint Louis I received a track titled “Right Now”. This song is by a new rap artist named It’s Wood, and it features the fresh vocals of Colin Drew. The song is produced by one of my favorite producers, Ronnie Notch. This track displays the perfect marriage of hip hop and R&B to create a classic ballad.  Both of these artists are new on the scene and have definitely made a statement with this track.
