Jay-Z and Jermaine Dupri saved my life. I shit you not.

True story.

Winter of 2002: I was at the end of a long weekend of gigs, in the middle of a six hour drive from a gig in Minnesota back down to college in southern Iowa.  I had my music on shuffle, and the song, “Money Ain’t a Thang,” came on (by Jermaine Dupri & Jay-Z)…

The beat woke me up.

On the other side of the highway.

Heading into oncoming traffic.

In related news, it was something by Nickelback that put me to sleep and almost killed me.
