Vinyl Destination | Ep. 21 “Magic Show” On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Had three days off… I gotta play somewhere!
DJ Jazzy Jeff

Hip-Hop and martial arts – there’s a connection. Some real talk where the real work begins again (Manilla, Philippines). Then Jeff the crew is off and running again to Singapore, after getting some KFC. Then Tokyo, Japan. Good times on the rip-and-run-and-fun tour underway. Oh… and there’s barbecue… Korean barbeque!

(And… um… some magic?)

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 20 “Food For Thought” On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

I’mo eat me a scorpion… a fried scorpion… it’s gone be good…
DJ Ferno

That’s how we’re starting? Okay, this is Vinyl Destination. This is the start of the Asian Tour. On the way to Seoul, Korea, to get it popping… like fried bugs… but nah, even though the fellas went hard with the travel (off to the Philippines in a flash), the grub, and the club work. It was a pretty chill episode overall. Enjoy it.

(Bet you want one of those doughnuts though. Bet that up!)

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 19 “Delirious” On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Guard your nuts.
DJ Jazzy Jeff

Whew! Can we call the last leg of the European tour a wrap already? The guys are worn out – delirious with hunger and fatigue. Almost there though fellas. Three days. But… three days is time enough to get in some serious club jams, traffic jams, airport jams… all starting with the crew jammed into tiny cabs to make their way through Manchester UK the to the first gig in the ep. Real 90s Hip-Hop party in store for the locals. Just for starters. Hit play above for the rest. Hit the jump for some snaps from the clip. Go!

(Heard that Dayne Jordan jawn “All About The Art” in there, didn’t you? Yeaaah ya did. Got that for you here.)

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 18 “Lessons With Jazz” On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Can I ask you a question… Was it a good fade?
DJ Ferno

DJ Ferno gets called onto the carpet (er… couch) for a DJ Jazzy Jeff post-show reprimand. Evaluations are evaluations, wherever you work, right? Nah. You probably don’t get a camera shoved in your face the whole time your boss is giving you the talkin’ to… and you don’t likely get a real opportunity to land a ‘counter’ like Ferno did. Haa! Even getting ‘dressed down’ on these Vinyl Destination eps is classic.

It’s all about IMPACT people. Remember that ya young’ns!

Keep watching though: The crew did a double in Manchester, then get over to Preston, UK. Jeff giving love to fans and they mans’n’em, meeting and greeting and signing stuff along the way. Skillz with his commentary added in. Prepare to chuckle.

(Notice how Jeff wouldn’t make the hand gesture he did not understand for the one fan’s pic. That’s not “being rude”… actually, it’s being smart… never know who you may offend, or if you are misrepresenting yourself in some way doing things like that just because someone asks. Careful people! Lots of laughs AND lessons in this episode. Enjoy!)

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 17 “Oooh Kille’m” On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Good rest-up over the time off. Good van ride over to the hotel in England. Good sound check. Good chill time before the night’s show. Oh, speaking of chill… damn it got cold, right Steve? Bwaahahaa. All in all, no tripping just good times before, up to, and through the party set for this episode of Vinyl Solution. Until the crew gets stuck in the elevator…

We gotta draw straws to see who we gone eat…

DJ Jazzy Jeff

Uh oh. Drama begins. The fellas get out, but it don’t stop. After the party it the after party NO! It’s a mad dash back to pack and load into the van, to dash over to another show in Ireland (Cork; where Jeff and Skillz kille’m every time with that “Jump Around” apparently), then catch a flight, to do back-shows after that (Bristol, then Manchester).

You probably recognize the work of one Dayne Jordan on the episode’s soundtrack; some of the cuts posted here on the site. Dope,

Enjoy the ep.

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 16 ‘Proper Lube’ On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Okay, okay. Been a minute since we came with the Vinyl Destination posts. Apologies all around to all appropriate parties. AND sooo… if you are a stickler for watching in order, we do a solid. Start by watching AFTER THE JUMP (start it from the bottom then come here).

So we come to day 3 of European jaunt for this Vinyl Destination episode. DJ Jazzy Jeff and the best in the biz, riding out in the world’s smallest minivan, to Annecy, France. Not always ‘deluxe accommodations’ but chilling. Cookies and chips. Then…to get it IN… Pop Plage!! Then off Belfast, Ireland. Then to London…whew, they’re working people! And before you ask, yes the title is indeed ‘Proper Lube’ and NO… not saying anymore about that here. Watch the vid.

PBS: “Finding Your Roots” With Dr. Henry Louis Gates Explores Celebrities’ Family Trees, Including Nas’ (Season Trailer)

“Now I’m looking into their world…”
Nas

PBS is home to some incredible television. Real. Not ‘reality TV.’ Case in point: “Finding Your Roots” with Dr. Henry Louis Gates, Jr. Following on a great inaugural season, Season 2 is going to be loaded with guests who want to know the depth of the roots of their family trees. Everyone will learn something stunning about themselves on the show. The G.O.D.M.C. Nassir Jones (aka Nas), shown among other celeb guests in the season trailer above, seemed very reflective about what Dr. Gates found and shared with him. Check out the trailer. And check local listings for broadcast times.

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 12 ‘The Silent Disco’ On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Episode 12… something familiar about it… Oh! On this ep Jeff and the crew jump the big pond from LA to the UK to do a surprise show on the Graham Norton Show. London with DJ Jazzy Jeff putting the perfect spin on a performance by… longtime partner Will Smith! We posted the surprise treat they gave the crowd there here.

There is much more – LA to London to Vegas in record time. And they their way to Tennessee. Some true southern fried chicken plates?

And now Dayne Jordan is embedded with the crew? Cool, cool.

And … WTF … a ‘Silent Disco’? %Party I’m in! Where are my headphones? That looked like mad fun! So much wildin’ and little time for rest. But enough of my jibba-jabba, ride out to Vinyl Destination above!

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 11 ‘Give The Drummer Some’ On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

In this episode of Vinyl Destination, DJ Jazzy Jeff and his crew ‘have a Cali week’ in Los Angeles. Jeff links up with drummer Travis Barker to talk about the possibility of doing a show. They chat about gear and do a DJ/Drummer jam session. Got into a lot for what was to be a laid back time. Eventually got over to the grocery store to shop to make a ‘Magnificent Meal’ – and leave a full fridge (like Jeff says a good house guest should) – while staying at the home of comedian buddy Russell Peters (see him in this prior episode here)) while in town. A show in San Diego, then flying out to UK for a day, then back stateside for another show in Vegas the day after… whew! A chill week, then back on the grind like a mutha—-!

Nice soundtracking in the back[ground] in this episode (contributions from Dayne Jordan).

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 9 ‘Kid Cudi Bath Time Music’ On Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

Nasty Nas Milkshake…” “…This milkshake is CRAZY!”

RESPECT to Vinyl Destination’s production crew for dropping in that “Room Test” by Dayne Jordan (fi-yah!) into this Episode 9 soundtrack right from the jump!

(Oh, and don’t think we missed Episode 8… it’s after the jump, mickey fickeys!)

DJ Jazzy Jeff, Skillz and the crew on to the next one… on to the next one… on their European tour. Manchester. Brussels. Zurich. Several destinations for this episode of Vinyl Destination. Fine and good… but this travel situation is kinda eff’d up (good shake though). Truth: Touring is not always first class travel and 5 star meals. Work life on the road. But a warm bath while listening to some Kid Cudi makes it all better, of course (wait, what?).

Vinyl Destination | Ep. 1 In Charlotte And Chicago, Season 2 With The Magnificent DJ Jazzy Jeff (Video)

YES! Vinyl Destination with DJ Jazzy Jeff, Skillz and the crew is back mannn! First stop: Charlotte (North Carolina). Some came for the CIAA Basketball Tournament. Everybody came to party! The whole episode is tremendous viewing, but we lose it starting at 3:50.

They have younger events at CIAA… but if a younger person gets a chance to kinda come to one of those classic… you know, 90s parties… they probably gone see their mom… you know, rocking HARD… in a tight fit dress… that she wore when she met your dad… that she really can’t fit anymore… but she still wears it. Might be a little traumatic.

DJ Jazzy Jeff

Hahahaaa! Hey, that’s the risks when you party at CIAA, young’n. Partied in Chicago, too. George Daniels (the O.G.) on stage. Dancing. Breaking it down. These vids are so much fun and hilarious. Click play above and enjoy the start of Vinyl Destination Season 2!
