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, something by Nickelback almost killed me.
