That night at 10 p.m. I wrote a blog calling out the Today Show, in defense of DJ Jazzy Jeff.
Envy McKee, a media personality in Philadelphia, shared it on Facebook and Twitter.
It later reached DJ Jazzy Jeff, himself, and his wife, and he retweeted it out to his138,180 followers, and personally thanked me for defending him.
March 22 it was retweeted between Jeff's followers, fans, and peers.
I checked in late in the day and saw that the link to my blog was being posted around, and I followed a few of those people.
One of them was someone named @Questlove. I saw he had a link on his site with the title "Shame on you @Today Show." Someone else must have written an article about it, or it hit national media. I clicked on the link and was amazed that it came back to my blog page.
By 10 p.m. I had over 10,000 hits to my blog and climbing.
Was it fun? Hell yeah.
But the best part of all came around 10 p.m. March 23, when the blog had “calmed down” to “only” 3,000 hits. I got a tweet directly from Dj Jazzy Jeff, thanking me.
