I’m honored to make music for a living.  I’m not the best rapper in the world.  I don’t have the best voice.  And despite many offers, I’m not supported by the machine, or a major label.  What I DO have is an unparalleled passion for music, and a work ethic that was handed down to me from my parents and my big brother, Lenny.  Music is my weapon forged with divine and creative fire.

My record has only been out for 325 minutes, and I’ve been bombarded with some of the most kind, warm words of my career.  I’d like to think I’m getting better with age.  Either way, I’m very proud of my new record.  Everything is good right now.  God is good.  I just hope my pop, my nan, and step-pop are proud of me.  I do this for them.  And my family who are still with me in the physical.  Without them, I’m a dead man.  So, thanks for showing me love for the past 20 years.

Thank you for all the kind words you’ve been sending me.  It means a lot to me.  Y’all are the reason I’m alive today, so, thank you for always supporting what I do.  It would be impossible for me to ever articulate to you guys how much each and every one of you mean to me, so I’ll just try to pay you back by doing the only thing i know how to do: keep making music.
I’m humbled…Vinnie Paz aka Boxcutta PAZZY!!

    You’re welcome, Vinnie. Thanks for the music. I know you said you don’t have the best voice but your voice is very unique. Very distinctive. Be proud of that!

  • Truth about rappers

    How can he say something like this when he supports/promotes Jay Z, who raps about raping women and children?


    you’re touching a lotta people with your music, not many rappers can do that. look at your shows: metal heads, punks, hardcore-heads (i love scott vogel), rap-heads… they mosh. rappers claim JMT as their main influence. you guys been through lots of shitty things (i remember the show in munich, where the motherf— promoter fucked up everything)… but you made amazing productions, album after album!

    i’m loyal JMT-head… forever!

  • Jonas

    I truly hope that you realize what consequenses your music has on all us fans.. JMT and especially you Vinnie has been a great motivation in my life and helped me through the worst time. In your music there is room for every emotion and that makes it great wheather you’re angry or sad. You always deliver and I can’t wait to get familiar with the new album.. Great respect. Jonas..

  • Yogi

    If enough people listened to your music, over time you can consciously persuade the minds of the people. One day over-throw big government and get back to the simple things. Peace on earth. Only fix what you can control.. And thats exactally what your music does.. Pure Genius
    God Bless – Yogi
