YouKnowIGotSoul: Tell us the place you presently stand with Dru Hill.
Jazz: Right now, I’ve simply been venturing to only a stage the place I’m specializing in a couple of of my very own solo endeavors. Over the years, I’ve labored on some issues on and off. I’ve reduce some solo materials, I did a report with Jill Scott, they put that on the Rush Hour 2 soundtrack. I did a couple of issues on some soundtracks.

I may inform you the primary time I ever heard the monitor, I feel I completed the track in like 10 minutes. Sometimes once you hear music, it should communicate for itself. Other instances you’ll have to enter the studio and hash it out. For that report, it had a vibe that was plain. I felt it after I heard it.
YouKnowIGotSoul: Will this result in an album?
Jazz: Yep, it will simply be the start of many initiatives.

The kinds of music that I like could be very widespread and once you sing within the group, you’ve obtained to just about decide an space to carry down. Almost like once you’re taking part in on a crew, decide an space that you simply’re going to carry down. I feel that space is what folks know for me so far as singing in Dru Hill. As far as you doing a solo mission, you’ve gotten the chance to open up and show the entire different skills that you’ve got in numerous instructions. It sort of brings all people to my world. When it involves the differentiation of sound and all of that, it’s not on objective, it’s simply moving into and being inventive. I at all times take the mindset of let’s take away the entire partitions and simply create. That’s after I normally give you my greatest work, after I don’t go in making an attempt to remain inside a sort of body. I simply let the music communicate.
YouKnowIGotSoul: Do you assume you’ll ever be part of Dru Hill once more sometime?
Jazz: Man I don’t know! It’s one factor that I do know we at all times stored saying the entire time, at all times anticipate the surprising. I assume it’s like my man stated, “life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get.” So we by no means know. All we are able to do is attempt to preserve striving and assume constructive and simply know that nice issues are going to occur. If someplace alongside the road that’s the way it’s going to be, that’s the way it’s going to be.
