Krip-Hop Nation:
I’m so honored to have a chance to interview you and saw you at Yoshi’s in San Francisco in February 2010.  There is so much to talk about but I want to talk about your experience with a disability in the music industry back in the day and now, your friendship with Ray Charles, Doc Pomus and your life.  Is that ok with you?

Jimmy Scott:   
It's my pleasure, Baby, and thank you for your attention.
