    • Music

Today on A Waste of Time with ItsTheReal, we welcome BET host, digital media personality, and all-around defender of the culture Mouse Jones to the Upper West Side! In Part 1 of this 2-episode podcast, Mouse discusses his upbringing on Long Island, how his step father became more indispensable than his own blood relatives, his work and opinions as a sweeper boy at the local barber shop, how he got involved with the streets as a lone wolf, his early dreams of journalism and a college career at Howard University, why he gave up on high school, how he found out he was a teenage father, how his cousin duped him into joining the Navy, how he almost bombed out of boot camp, how he shaped up and shipped out, bought into watching the backs of his peers and the wishes of his commanders, was honorably discharged, found himself living in Virginia, cutting hair and cutting up, and why exactly he thought he'd never make it out of there alive... Tune in on Thursday for the amazing second part of Mouse's journey!
