Interview With Illa J

Siblings of the famous always have the burden of being comparably scrutinized to their prominent kinfolk. Janet Jackson earned her place as a solo star but no lengthy article written about her omits the relationship to brother Michael. The Rhythm Nation performer established her own catalog in a post-Thriller world but will always be Michael’s little sister. And to her credit Ms. Jackson has been gracious to interviewers who ask her about Michael and is always proud to be a member of the first family of R&B royalty. Illa J is experiencing something similar being the younger brother of hip-hop’s most intriguing beat scientist. The unexpected passing of the older brother in ’06 devastated his family and made hip-hop aficionados mourn the loss of hip-hop’s most innovative producer.
