Black V Neck Roasts

Is JustinJ Irrelevant?

By  | 

Lately, I’ve had to endure video’s about me and I’ve been silent. It’s a part of the game and if I can dish it I can most certainly take it. Some things I will not tolerate, however. I’ve let them have their fun and now it’s my turn.

I’ve been called irrelevant and cocky which both are nowhere near true. How am I irrelevant but the very mention of my name subliminally or my brand creates buzz and views? As far me being cocky is laughable. I have spoken to several of my imagesupporters personally. I receive emails every week that I try to respond to in a timely matter. I hate to even utter the word “fan” because I don’t consider myself that important. The Jays have helped me go from the park bench to Buckhead with their support and keeping me motivated. A person who never is afraid to discuss financial or personal issues. Someone who will give anyone the shirt off their back for somebody in need. Never have you ever heard me say that I don’t care about your opinion or my brand. Money doesn’t motivate me. My supporters do.

The truth is no matter how much I go off or curse or drag there is always a message in my videos. People who watch me have stopped me at the grocery store while wearing sweats and a backwards hairline and I still spoke and had a conversation with them. My supporters have made it possible for me to continue to grow. I’ve let this narrative go on that I’m difficult to work with or that I like drama. Far from the truth, I like professionalism and I like growth. Viewers are bored easily and if they don’t see growth or appreciation they will move on swiftly & professionally. They will not wait on you to grow, you have to show that you want to grow.

The Main Event ATL was created for me to step out of the box and to do something different for a change. It was never to make anyone feel any type of way. I wouldn’t know if I could pull something off until I tried and believe in myself first. A year ago I had a meet and greet in Atlanta at Yardhouse where I met some really nice people. 30 to 40 people showed up and that made little old me feel confident. Quality over quantity any day. Those people who believed in me enough to travel from different parts of the country told me a lot. It taught me that I have a voice and people listen.

That means I have to be mindful and use it for good. Which is why next week I’ll be in attendance to the 2016 YBGLI (Young Black Gay Leadership Initiative) summit in Baton Rouge. I will not be paid for the event and my travel comes out of my pocket. They will pay me with knowledge so that I can then take this to those who follow me and educate them.

I’ll be broke, messy and irrelevant in your eyes. As long as the people who support and appreciate me that’s all that matters. Thank you Jays for always believing in me. You all are very much relevant to me. Thank you for believing in me when I didn’t believe in myself.

 

For your enjoyment, I did go in. Take a look below and grab your headphones.

    I don’t comment often but I would call myself a silent J. I love the way that you have grown so much. I have been around a long time and I can honestly say that you are one of the most humble vlogger that I subscribe to. You keep growing and being yourself. You know when you are doing something right the roaches always come out of the woodworks. Stay blessed and continue to pay these irrelevant fools dust. This is coming from a silent J and big supporter of your brand. Keep up the great work.

    Justin I have seen tremendous growth just in these past few months. Its difficult when other people who wish you ill will tell your story or sensationalize your person with their wicked lies and hate. I know this too well. I have witnessed hate towards you and often times spoke up, reminding them that the very people they support are committing those same crimes they speak of. Sometimes defending yourself is what needs to be done. You have so many people who love your honesty, support your hustle and know your heart. The others choose to nic-pic everything they see wrong, focusing only on that to feed their own insecure egos. Just to find something to be mad at. You are in YOUR LANE and I wish so many of these people would stay in theirs. Maybe folks would be a little less bothered and more busy with important topics and things.. Like VOTING for starters… The more I get to witness your humble, open spirit and self awareness, the more and more I admire, respect and love you. Keep making folks mad and calling MFers out.. Do You Boo!! Rock On with your bad self!! Yes Sirrr!!!
