Jim Jones and DJ Webstar have teamed up on an album that is set for release October 6, 2009 entitled “The Rooftop“. This week, SoJones had the opportunity to sit in during the filming of the music video for a “Rooftop” single, “She Can Get It.”
Instead of using a conventional stage in a studio deep in some industrial area of the city, the set of the video was a shoe store in the Flatiron District of New York City. Because of the logistics, it was a pretty packed house. That didn’t keep DJ Webstar from sitting down with Jake Breinholt to let SoJones readers know what’s good. Webstar was the creative force behind “Chicken Noodle Soup,” which went to #45 on the Billboard Hot 100 Chart in 2006.
Jake: Web, what is your favorite piece in your closet, right now?
DJ Webstar: I have a real nice True Religion shirt that I love. I just love True Religion right now. That’s like my thing, True Religion jeans, shirt, the hat, I love ’em.
Jake: TR is definitely hot. Can you tell us what was the first designer piece that you ever purchased was?
DJ Webstar: Ah, Coogi. That was back in junior high school. I used to watch Biggie on the TV and I would see him wearing all the Coogi sweaters, and the hats. That was in the late 90’s.
Jake: So it seems like this collaboration album with Jim Jones has turned out to be pretty hot. What do you have lined up next, and who else do you plan on working with?
DJ Webstar: Well I’m also working on my solo album, with like, Akon, Cassie, Diddy, Trey Songz, Bow Wow, so many people, I could go on and on.
Jake: Sounds big. When is that one scheduled for release?
DJ Webstar: 2010, first quarter. Either January or February.
Jake: Going back to “The Rooftop,” what has been your favorite part about working with Jim Jones?
DJ Webstar: The spontaneous-ness of it. You just never know what the next day is going to bring. You never know what might happen when you wake up in the morning. He’s (Jim Jones) a phenomenal musician so, it’s easy working with him. I focus more on the production side, so he can just do his thing.
Jake: So, what about kicks, man. What are some of your favorites?
Jake: If you had an opportunity to work with a designer, who would be your first choice?
DJ Webstar: If I could work with a designer? Um, I would have to say, probably Kimora Lee. I would like to see her do some men’s stuff. Because you know my mom, my grandmother and my cousin all love her stuff, and I would like to see her come out with a men’s line too. Something like she does with Baby Phat, except for men.
