  1. I saw him for the first time last night April 24, 2019 in Greensboro North Carolina at the health campus for North Carolina A & T, UNcg, etc. and I heard his story about buying queen Latifah‘s Cassette tape. And he mentioned ladies first. It was awesome listening to this young man and his story I can’t wait to read some of his books.

  2. "Rap music is violent and misogynistic?" How is that any different from 95% of Hollywood movies.

  3. Jason I think you are so cool. Young adult literature is one of the coolest genres of writing. Good luck!

  4. Love this interview..so articulate, and so insightful..just read his book a long way down and it was phenomenal!

  5. He went to my school today and gave us a free copy of a long way down

  6. Just found out about this guy today and am now watching tons of youtube clips about him. This guy is phenomenal! I'm so glad he didn't let anyone or anything deter him from being a writer. I can't wait to read his stuff.

  7. I love how he loves his mother. He always brings the room to tears at the CSK breakfast #ALA

  8. Amazing interview, I am going to read these books. Great inspiration Jason.
