The 5th Annual 2017 Global Spin Awards (GSA) was nothing short of amazing. It was created by Director Shawn Prez to highlight and celebrate the industry’s pioneer DJs for all their hard work, and dedication to their craft. More importantly, this awards ceremony is dedicated to drawing attention to what DJs and their line of work does for the culture.”It feels great to honor people that don’t normally get recognized or honored, so to put on an event that recognizes DJs exclusively, it feels good,” said Prez.

Many people do not realize that the role of a DJ has become very dynamic. DJs are making records, creating albums, opening businesses, helping people’s careers, but most importantly, they bring all the fun and entertainment. Hot 97’s DJ Camilo said, “I like the hustle of being a DJ, its a 24 hour job.” Camilo adds, “From radio, to night clubs, and apps there so much we do, but my favorite part of what we do is entertaining the people.”

Jameelah “Just Jay” Wilkerson, CEO and Publisher of “The Hype Magazine”, continues to make a name for herself as one of the leading women in the entertainment industry. The Indiana Native was most recently honored at “The Trailblazer Awards” December 4, 2016, at the Madame Walker Theatre.

Though she is the CEO of her own company, Jameelah prefers to be very “hands-on”, when it comes to the tasks necessary to keep the magazine running smoothly. She showcases her many talents on the back end of the magazine including web designing, consulting, and graphic designing.

She launched the magazine in 2002, at the young age of 24. Not only was she considered “young” to start a company, but it was apparent that she was one of the few women trying to accelerate her career in the midst of a predominately male-run industry. Though it wasn’t always easy, and she wasn’t always taken seriously because of her gender, this never stopped her form excelling in her field.

Why “The Hype”? What does the name stand for?

Jameelah: It stands for How You Perceive Everything. It basically was originated to be more of a literary magazine at first, but then it kinda turned into more of a hip-hop magazine over the years.

Jakk Jo (@Jakkjomusic) hails from the Boot, that’s Louisiana for you laypeople and New Orleans to be specific. Long a spawning place for industry changing music and personalities, this young man is on the path to add to this illustrious legacy. The music is top flight, his grind is real and most importantly, Jakk Jo understands that respect given can take you far in the entertainment industry and life. These are lessons he’s learned from his mother aka living hip hop legend Mia X, as well as his relationships with perhaps two of the biggest luminaries in the game today, Brian “Baby” Williams and his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams. In our conversation, there was no mistaking his respect for the latter and the timbre of his voice when he spoke those names, held an emotional content that signaled something more than respect…I think its cool to call it love, in the sense of treasured uncles, mentors and supporters.
