Jazzy Jeff: Power & Light out
All week a controversy raged over an incident in Kansas City last Saturday, when DJ Jazzy Jeff walked off the stage during a DJ set after his power was cut.
The longtime entertainer complained that he was being censored by the promoters, who operate the Midwest city's Power & Light entertainment district. He told the Associated Press that organizers didn't like the music he was spinning -- hip-hop. What the hell else is DJ Jazzy Jeff going to play?
Organizers responded that the volume was set too high for the system.
Then it was community's turn to respond: initial reactions turned toward race, which both parties deny played a part.
Doubtful Jazzy Jeff will be returning to KC anytime soon.
