Six Degrees of Aunt Jackie

A Harlem dance goes viral.

(Continued from Page 1)

And what of Jason Fox and his upstart rap crew? They were scooped up by Atlanta superproducer/mogul Jermaine Dupri, for his new Island Urban label. In astatement announcing Fox's signing, Dupri said: "I think were seeing the life of hip-hop coming back with songs like 'Aunt Jackie.' It's the kids acting like kids used to act when I was growing up, and I love it because, to me, hip-hop has been too cool for school lately." True enough—but will Jason Fox still be acting like a kid in six months, once he has a diamond studded Rolex and a seat in every VIP room in town? It remains to be seen. In the meantime, "Aunt Jackie" is finally available on iTunes, and there's a new high-gloss "official" Aunt Jackie video on the Web. It definitely doesn't have the ragamuffin charm of the one that went up six months ago. But it features lots of cute Harlem kids dancing—and this time you can actually hear the song.
