Description

Today on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, the second of our two-part episode with BET host, digital media personality, and all-around defender of the culture Mouse Jones! Mouse, a high school dropout from Long Island with dashed dreams and a history in the streets, who found discipline and teamwork in the Navy, stayed down in Virginia after an honorable discharge, cutting hair, but also selling guns. Mouse discusses why people around town felt a certain way about him, talks us through the attempt on his life that shook him into reality, the phone call with his step father that brought him back to his family in New York, a second near-death experience, and exactly how fast he ran to church to be saved. Mouse gets into what the church meant to him, what comedy meant to him, how he made the two work together, how he reunited with his biological father and why it fell apart once more. We discuss chance encounters with Jimmy Fallon and Royce da 5'9, how much work it took to launch his podcast, his own beliefs on how to approach people, how he leaned on Cory Townes for guidance, how generous Lowkey was with advice on how to host parties, what it meant to work on the TRL reboot on MTV, how he took a small opportunity with BET and hit it out of the ballpark, how in the world he went from moving guns in Virginia to moving a sold-out crowd at Staples Center in LA, and much more! Listen now to Parts 1 and 2 on iTunes and soundcloud and everywhere else!
