Grammy Award winning producer, artist and Jamla founder 9th Wonder has joined forces with The DJBooth for his exclusive new 73 track beat tape, Bladey Mae.
“This past weekend, I met my grandma, Beulah Mae Jarrett Douthit’s family (my dad’s mother) for the first time. My grandma passed in 1965, so I’ve had no connection to her at all. I listened to the elders talk about her all day. One elder in particular, her oldest niece, who’s 78-years-old, told me that her nickname was ‘Bladey Mae’, because of the blades she carried around in the purse and pockets, to protect her children from a segregated South, one of them being my dad. I was looking for a name for a new beat tape, and that one just came out of nowhere. Here’s to you Beulah Mae Jarrett Douthit and the blades you carried to protect pops……’Bladey Mae’… – 9th Wonder
