Synopsis

Synopsis

“Jonesy,” as she’s known to her fans, captivates millions of Hot 97 listeners with her daily dish on hip hop and rap celebrity. But within these pages are the juicy scandals that even this no-holds-barred DJ has kept off the airwaves. For the first time, Jones reveals everything–from her volatile upbringing as the child of alcoholic parents to candid stories of her early singing career under Doug E. Fresh’s wing (and between his sheets); from bitter feuds with Wendy Williams and shock jocks Star and Buc Wild to friendships with Patti LaBelle and Isaac Hayes; from collaborations with Fat Joe and Big Pun all the way to catfights with Christina Milian and Beyoncé’s mother, Tina Knowles. But more than just a tell-all tale, this inspirational memoir is a testament to the struggles of a black woman trying to succeed in a white-male-dominated industry, where the sharks never stop circling no matter how much you achieve. Jones lets it all hang out and doesn’t tiptoe around anyone’s feelings–including her own.

“Love or loathe her, Tarsha Jones puts it all out there. Politically correct? Not a chance. Boring? Never.”
–Essence

“Heart-wrenching and empowering . . . Women behind the scenes in hip-hop are unabashedly writing about what goes on behind the bling curtain. . . . Now it’s Tarsha’s turn. Miss Jones, if you please.”
LASplash.com

“Provocative reading . . . Jones is a survivor, and you can’t help but admire her resiliency. . . . Her writing style is blunt, but with a special flair for the dramatic.”
–Smooth

“Steamy . . . guaranteed to raise eyebrows.”
–Ebony

“If there’s one jock that shocks, it’s Miss Jones. . . . She’s never afraid to reveal the truth.”
–Rap-Up
