In this week’s episode, DJ Jazzy Jeff wraps up the Middle Eastern portion of his tour. The crew gets an opportunity of a life time hanging out in the Red Bull pits at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Bahrain. As a Red Bull DJ, Jeff was thrilled to witness the victory of the Red Bull racing team. Following the race, Jeff catches up with world class driver Lewis Hamilton to talk cars and music. The conversation continues back at the palace where Jeff uses the Prince’s personal studio to record scratches for Mint Condition’s single “Girl Of My Life.” On a day off, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Skillz decide to put on a special performance for some deserving people. They show their appreciation to the men and women of the armed forces by playing at a military base in Abu Dhabi. The crew leaves the Middle East on a high note only to have a run in with the law at their next stop, Paris. Check out Vinyl Destination episode 7 here.
AMIRacle, the son of legendary turntablist and producer, DJ Jazzy Jeff, is back with another single I’m About It. This track reveals what music means to him and why he plans on doing it for the rest of his life. I’m About It is the second release to come from the 13 year old lyricist. In August AMIRacle gave us Think Back, a tribute to the many greats of Hip-Hop including his dad.
“AMIRacle is a super talented artist and I’m really excited to be working with him,” said DJ Jazzy Jeff. “He has such an old soul and his own style that sometimes I forget he’s my son.”
Produced by 3AM, I’m About It has a sound completely different from the light-hearted vibe of Think Back. Both songs are part of a bigger project AMIRacle is currently working on. Stay tuned for a video that includes I’m About It and his next single I Ain’t Cocky.
“The Best to Ever Do it” is all i can say.

“Last night I was in vegas w/ my “GP” DJ Jazzy Jeff and looked outside my hotel window and saw this………. The last time I was here I had the opportunity to DJ on the roof of this building. It’s was by far one of the greatest moments in My life… So much so that I shed a “thug tear” when I found out I was doing it..To make a long story short…. #GiveThanks & #StayHungry”
