What is The Just Right Project to me?
It’s more than just music, an event, or a fundraiser, it’s a chance for us to get together as a community and make a difference in the lives of the less fortunate families out in the world. When my good friend Jay-P and Mark Modesto told me about The Just Right Project, I was moved by it and I knew I wanted to be involved somehow, I wanted to help with whatever I can.
The goal of the Just Right Project is to build homes for the less fortunate families living in the harsh conditions in the Philippines. This is done by raising awareness and putting together a series of fundraisers where all the proceeds go to the ANCOP Foundation. It costs $2,300 to build a family a long standing home that is passed on from generation to generation. The beneficiaries of the homes are families described to be the poorest of the poor, most with five or more family members. Third Floor Network along with DJ Jay-P launched the Just Right Project to aid in raising awareness and money for the cause.
After a few discussions with Jay-P and Mark Modesto, we have decided to put together a fundraiser here in Toronto and allow everyone the opportunity to help the cause. It would be nice for us people in the Toronto/GTA area to come together and build a home for a family that really needs it. So after all the discussions, we have put together the Just Right Project: Toronto happening this Thursday April 21st, inside Blondies. The atmosphere will definitely be great for the night. DJ Jay-P will be coming in from Los Angeles to provide the music for the night along with myself. It would be nice to have everyone come out, support the cause and hang out to good music with good people.
The minimum donation for the event is $10, and all the proceeds will be donated to the ANCOP Foundation. And when November comes around, Jay-P, Mark, and I, will be heading to the Philippines to help build these homes that you all help put together. So let’s all save the extra $10 we are going to spend on something meaningless and let’s make a change in the world!
“Once social change begins, it cannot be reversed. You cannot uneducate the person who has learned to read. You cannot humiliate the person who feels pride. You cannot oppress the people who are not afraid anymore. We have seen the future, and the future is ours.” -Cesar Chavez
Kudos to Gwen Stefani. The No Doubt singer donated $1,000,000 today to Save the Children’s “Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund” to help in the relief and recovery effort in Japan.
Stefani not only made a personal donation but has also set up a way for her fans to help as well. Plans for a charity auction where you can bid on the chance to join Gwen at a special fundraiser in Los Angeles will be announced next week and Stefani’s clothing line, Harajuku Lovers, has unveiled a special edition shirt to benefit the efforts. 100 percent of all sales from the shirt will go to help Japan. Fans can also donate here at www.savethechildren.org.
“I’ve been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture,” Stefani said in a statement. “The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years.”
Stefani also tweeted a link to the info, saying, “Planning some big things to help with the relief effort in Japan. They need our help.”
Charles MacCormack, president and CEO of Save the Children, an organization that “creates lasting change for children in need in the United States and around the world,” said, “We are very grateful to have such a generous donation from Gwen Stefani for our relief efforts in Japan. Save the Children has been in Japan for 25 years and we are working closely with our teams on the ground to address the immediate and ongoing needs of children and their families whose lives were turned upside down by this tragedy.”

The first thing on most peoples’ minds after they hear the news of a horrific disaster (like the earthquake in Japan) is, what can I do to help?
Even if you’re hundreds of thousands of miles away, there are various ways that you can offer your support to the earthquake and tsunami relief effort. Here are just a few of them:
The Red Cross: The Japanese Red Cross has already deployed 11 national disaster response teams to respond to the crisis but you can support their efforts by donating money. Similar to their efforts to help Haiti after the earthquake in 2010, Red Cross is accepting donations either online or via text message. Simply text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 from your phone (you’ll be prompted to confirm with a second text reading YES).
Shelterbox: The UK-based organization has 18 international affiliates and it has launched an online fundraiser for the earthquake and tsunami relief efforts. Shelterbox provides assistance to afflicted countries by delivering large utility boxes that contain a shelter and other emergency relief tools. To donate online, simply go to your country’s site and click DONATE.
International Medical Corps: To donate to this global non-profit’s Emergency Response Efforts fund, simply go to their site and select the amount you wish to donate (be sure to note if you want your donation to be a “recurring gift” for future relief efforts) and fill in your information.
GlobalGiving.org: Working with other organizations such as the International Medical Corps, D.C.-based organization GlobalGiving has launched the Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund, which will give aid to on the ground organizations providing emergency services. They are accepting donations online with a funding goal of $90, 000.
Convoy of Hope: This non-profit focuses on disaster relief efforts and you can donate either online at their site or via text message by texting TSUNAMI to 50555 (you’ll also be prompted to confirm with a follow up text of YES).
I’ve said it before but every time is like the first time. Im thankful for all the positive feedback Ive been receiving on my mixes especially JustRight. This project is really special to Roslynn, Chrystal, Joel, and myself. At the end of the day, it really isn’t about the mixes, the parties, or the social events. At the end of the day its really about using the JustRight Project to change the lives of others for the better. I’ve had friends and strangers approach me saying that we inspire them but really It’s the other way around. Thank YOU for the inspiration…..
Thank you Chénergy Lynne, I would love to give you an actual JustRight CD, shirt, and pins…
Nobody can sing it like did, ever…

Definitely want to thank Ms. Vargas for her generous donations and sponsoring Team RunRight. Her contribution will help change lives, just like what this lady does for her career. She saves lives and loves being there for her patients as a Registered Nurse at USC University Hospital, Cardio-Thoracic Intensive Care Unit.
Alongside with her continuous support in helping raise awareness is Nina Salgado, Account Coordinator at Brand Building Communications, Beverly Hills. With an extremely demanding work schedule, but loving every second of it, exudes out of Ms. Salgado, that what you do is truely complimentary to everything around you.
Their amazing drive keeps me driven and I am very appreciative and just blessed to have them a part of the JustRight project… and my life! Love these women!
“… Knowing which friends are “just for professional use.”
Mr. Eric Uaje is a very busy guy, with a full-time schedule: he is either at work as Strategic Growth and Market Planning Analyst at Epson, studying to get his Masters in Business Administration at USC, or you’ll see him at 24Hr Fitness Gym getting a workout in between hours! He means business all the time! And is the JustRight friend to talk to about aspirations and goals. I am not trying to brag about the guy, but I am just so proud of him and very appreciative of his generous donation that will change lives and help build homes for the less fortunate in the Philippines, and also for sponsoring myself, Chrystal for Team RunRight during the HB Surf City Marathon!
“… It doesn’t matter how long you haven’t seen a true friend because when you do see them, everything is JustRight.” -Aldo Sibal
I am a big believer of surrounding yourself and always reconnecting as much as possible with positive and good people to help motivate you, keep you driven and just simply happy.
They wouldn’t be considered just people, they would be the definition of friendship.
Finally had an overdue and over-consumption of all-u-can-eat korean bbq dinner the other night with an individual who I have the upmost respect for because of his love for life and down to earth attitude. He had open ears and an open heart about the JustRight Project and is definitely on board to raise awareness.
Thank you Aldo for your support and I appreciate you so much as my bestfriend! I cannot wait until our big trip to the motherland, Philippines.
“C.A. … All Day!” – Chicaron Adventures feature on DJ Jay-P & the meaning behind the JustRight Mix CD & Project
Thanks to Tricia and the Chicharon Adventures for this great feature on DJ Jay-P & the JustRight Mix: C.A…. All Day!
Yesterday, DJ Jay-P dropped his new mix called JustRight and made it available to the world. Jay-P is one of Southern California’s most active DJs with a schedule that takes him all over Los Angeles and Orange County on a weekly basis. He’s also a MySpace DJ, and can boast sharing the stage with names like Kanye West, Nas, Bilal, and many others. So you know he’s good. But this isn’t really about him. It’s about the mix I opened up this feature with.
JustRight isn’t a simple upload-the-mp3-to-mediafire-and-share-it kind of mix. It’s part of a larger project under the Third Floor Network (a network of independent musicians, artists, and entrepreneurs) that combines philanthropy with music. By downloading the mix on the JustRight site, or by picking up a physical copy, you instantly become informed of how you can help the socioeconomic condition of the Aytona Village in the Philippines. I’ll let Jay-P explain it…
How did a mixtape turn into a charity project?
Every time I visit the Philippines I am touched by the hardship, poverty, and living conditions of so many Filipinos. It hits home because the Philippines is my home and Filipinos are my people. I’ve always wanted to do something to help out even if it was something small. When I started working on this CD, my initial goal was to simply take donations through Paypal and buy school supplies for children in pre-school. After sharing my plans with my Dad and my partners Roslynn Cobarrubias, Chrystal Cruz, and Joel Ricafort, a simple idea evolved to a large project to help build homes for the less fortunate. That was when the JustRight Project was born.
That was simple, yet the importance is so significant. Why the title “JustRight”?
Being a fan of different types of music, I go through phases where I listen to certain genres and certain artists for months at a time. During the inception of the the JustRight CD, I was listening to Robin Thicke’s song entitled “Jus Right” from the Sex Therapy album. That song title stuck with me and I felt that it gave a mature feeling of love. I felt that it was perfect to call the new CD JustRight because it’s the sequel to Make Her Feel Good mix which had a puppy-love vibe and Love.Sick which was a break-up Mix. The title JustRight represents maturity, love, hope, and the idea that love happens for the right reasons at the right times.
What is the financial goal of JustRight, and what does that money translate to?
Third Floor Network and myself did not pledge or set a financial goal amount to raise for the project mainly because we didn’t know what to expect. I think I can speak the same for my partners that instead of pledging a set amount, we personally pledged to give 100% of my free time and effort until the end of March 2011 to the project and do our personal best to raise awareness and give others a platform and opportunity to help out. Thanks to our friends and family, we have already raised enough money to build the first home even before the CD drops or any of our events.
It only takes $2,300 to build a home that will benefit a family of 5 or more people. The beneficiaries are considered to be the poorest of the poor. For most of them, a home will be the only thing they will own aside from the clothes on their back and some personal belongings. In our eyes, $2,300 builds a small home with only necessities, but for the beneficiaries, having a home with running water, a solid roof, and a kitchen builds a second chance in life and a brighter future for their children. $2,300 changes lives and brings dignity and hope to those less fortunate.
You’ve teamed up with the ANCOP (Answering the Cry of the Poor) Foundation to make this happen. Why did you choose that particular foundation?
It was actually a coincidence that my Aunt Rose, a close family friend, has been working on building the Aytona Village for over 2 years now. When I found out that her family donated the land, I was sure that I wanted to be a part of their project. ANCOP is the foundation that she chose to build the village with mainly because they promote Christian-Catholic beliefs and she believed in the structure, resources, and reputation of the foundation.
How far do you want to take JustRight?
I feel that Third Floor Network and myself have already accomplished our initial goals of raising awareness on the poverty in the Philippines to our peers. The beauty of our marketing strategy is that it encourages others to take initiative and contribute to the project. With that said, we are in the process of planning events with individuals in Manila, Toronto, and New York with many doors still opening for us daily. I would like to take the JustRight Project as far as we can without having any expectations. It has to be fun, entertaining, and JustRight!
From your first hand experiences in the Philippines, tell me why it’s important to help the people there.
As human beings, it’s JustRight to help the less fortunate when we are capable. Even the slightest effort can make the biggest difference. As a Filipino-American I have been blessed with opportunities here in the states that my parents worked hard to get. I’m just giving back and sharing some of my blessings with those less fortunate. Respect the past and invest in the future.
Now to the musical element. Explain the JustRight mix, compare it with your other releases, and explain how you made this CD for your listeners.
My previous mixes were about myself because they reflected what I was going through in my life during that time. JustRight is in a way similar but I made it more for the listener. I treated this mix as if I was a composer working on a composition with a simple goal of making a classic. I wanted to compose a mix that people can listen to from beginning to end without skipping tracks and at the same time shine light onto artists and songs that don’t normally get exposure in the mainstream market. I wouldn’t label the JustRight CD underground or commercial as I strive so hard to find a balance between the two to capture the interest of advanced listeners who can appreciate all types of music.
Justright brings a different first impression to its listeners compared to other mixes. Instead of having a fancy intro with DJ scratches and name drops I decided to keep it simple with a direct verbal message of what to expect for the next 80 minutes. Like a thesis to an essay, the first three songs were blended plain and simple to represent the 3 genres you can expect to hear on the entire mix (Soul, R&B, Hip Hop). Immediately after that you are re-introduced to the DJ Jay-P sound with songs by Common, Groove Theory, and Musiq Soulchild who were artists also featured in the beginning of the Make Her Feel Good mix. Throughout the mix, you will find a handful of remixes and exclusive tracks only available in the JustRight CD. With over 100 songs used to create this 77-track mix, I’m hoping that my listeners will keep JustRight on rotation for years to come.
How long did the mixtape take you to complete?
The CD took me 10 months to finish from inception to duplication with a lot of long nights in my home studio. The longest part was gathering songs that fit the music format I had in mind. It took me over 6 months to gather over 200 songs before I started recording the mix. I also started over 8 times until I felt it flowed well from beginning to end.
Your work ethic is just as crazy as mine. So from one hustler to another, when do you have time to sleep?
I sleep when I can. I have such a busy lifestyle with multiple jobs and projects on my plate at all times but I try to prioritize getting rest and my health. My motto is “Help yourself to help others. You can do more when you’re capable.” That includes sleeping and maintaining good health!
I normally do a “Top 5″ thing when I interview folks here. So since you’re a DJ, yours would have to do with music. What are your top 5 albums of all time? GO!
This is a tough question and it would probably take me hours to give you an answer so I’ll just state my top 5 hip hop albums in no particular order.
1. A Tribe Called Quest – Low End theory
2. Jay-Z – The Black Album
3. Wu-Tang – 36 Chambers
4. Emanon (Aloe blacc and Exile) – Imaginary Friends
5. Nas – Illmatic
So after 10 months in the studio, JustRight is now available HERE. A perfect follow up to his previous mixtape, “Make Her Feel Good”, JustRight boasts over 100 tracks, ranging from Freeway to Rahsaan Patterson (major brownie points for using these two), from Trek Life to Christine Alane. Jay-P’s ear has undoubtedly evolved, as he features his own remixes (my favorite is his Drake “Best I Ever Had”) and also some mashups that had me saying “No, he didn’t just do that!” (like Groove Theory’s “Tell Me” over Musiq Soulchild’s “B.U.D.D.Y.”). There is something to be said about his song selection. It’s mature and almost unconventional – testament to said evolution. When you visit the site for your free copy, please take the time to learn more about the charitable element, and consider making a donation. On Friday, February 11, Jay-P and the rest of the JustRight team will host a release party at East 3rd in Downtown Los Angeles. Everyone is invited to celebrate this unique project.

A letter from DJ Rhettmatic:
It’s been 5 years since my man Dilla has passed away due to complications from Lupus (he passed away Feb 10, 2006….3 days after his birthday and the release of his official final album, Donuts). I released this mix 3 years ago….Since it’s Dilla’s birthday today (Feb. 7….he would’ve been 37 today), I figured I share this mix with everyone again even though it’s been out before……Below is the description of the mix from my Myspace blog (i know…who still uses Myspace?!). Peep it out and enjoy……Happy Birthday Dilla….i miss you bro.
Download the link HERE.
or listen to it from HERE.
Also, a reminder…..Tonight if you’re in Los Angeles, we will be celebrating our brother J Dilla at the Little Temple (4519 Santa Monica Blvd. LA, 90029). Myself, Houseshoes, Babu, Mayer Hawthorne, Dj Numark, Dj Jedi, Monalisa, as well as of other local LA Djs will be providing some tunes to remember our fallen musical brother…be sure to come out and support. All proceeds will be going to help out Mr & Mrs Yancey….please donate as much as you can.
From DJ RHETTMATIC
Myspace Blog – Feb. 6, 2009:
“February is the month that everybody usually connects Valentine’s Day with. But for me & for some other people, we consider February “Dilla Month”, because it is the month that our fallen brother and one of the greatest Hip Hop producers of all time, James D. Yancey aka J Dilla, was born & passed away on that same month (Feb. 7, 1974 – Feb. 10, 2006).
In honor & to celebrate the life & music of the honorable “Dill Withers”, i decided to put my bid in for a tribute mix. I know there’s going to be alot of Dilla tribute mixes out there, but i thought it doesn’t hurt to add another one. Plus the Funky President himself, J.Rocc, asked me to do some exclusive mixes for his blog (www.stoneyjackson.blogspot.com), so why not do a Dilla mix. It is appropriate given the occasion. Personally, i don’t think there’s no out there that can do a better J Dilla mix than my fellow Beat Junkie, J.Rocc…..the closest one next to him I would say is my brother from another mother, “Detroit’s Finest” own, Dj Houseshoes, but yeah, here’s my input.
Anyways, this is a mini mega mix of some of Dilla’s songs & production. I originally did this as a 10 minute mix for the mixtape project that J.Rocc, Houseshoes, & myself did with Dave New York 2 years ago to help out Mrs. Maureen Yancey aka Ma Dukes, Dilla’s mother…..an incredible lady (if y’all know the name of the mix cd project, go head & get it……) So I extended this mix from 10 minutes to 35 minutes. It was pretty much impossible for me to get everything that Dilla did on this mix (he has such a big discography, it’s ridiculous), especially for the fact I wanted to finish this before his birthday in such a short period of time. Of course, you’ll hear some of the classic songs that Dilla has produced in the mix, but you’ll also get to here some Dilla beats that you might have or have not heard before, and a live recording of Dilla performing “F*ck The Police” at one of his show in Europe (Paris, France to be exact) on his last tour ever (I was lucky & honored to be his tour dj for his last performances).
Like I said before, I don’t think anyone can do a J Dilla mix as great as J.Rocco’s, but here’s my mix for you to download…nothing really crazy. Please feel free to share with your friends & post it up on your music blog. I hope you enjoy the mix as much as I enjoyed making this. Thanks for checkin this out.”

Patricio Ginelsa: “JustRight to him is…” & Black Eyed Peas perform at Superbowl halftime today, will.i.am to tweet LIVE from the Dallas stadium
To director Patricio Ginelsa JustRight is:
giving “thanks to Roslynn Cobarrubias, Polo Molina, & Dj Rockyrock, I got my first big break and can brag I directed a Super Bowl Halftime band in TWO music videos. Congrats Black Eyed Peas and good luck representing us all today!!!
Watch the “Behind the Scenes” of the making of the BEP “APL Song” music video below:
“The APL Song” off the multi-platinum BEP “Elephunk” album was a tribute to the native land of the Philippines that apl.de.ap of BEP was born in, he was later adopted in his teenage years by a man that was roommates with will.i.am’s uncle which makes for an amazing story of the birth of BEP or Atbann Klann many years ago. Patricio heard “the APL Song” and immediately wrote a treatment that included shining light on the third world country and forgotten Filipino War veterans, while also showcasing some of the most prominent young Filipino American figures like Chad Hugo of the Neptunes, DJ Rhettmatic, Dante Basco, Joy Bisco and many more. As soon as I read the treatment, I was emotionally touched by the story, thinking of my own Papa who was a veteran and felt the the synopsis needed to be brought to life. I immediately passed it on to Polo/management and the Peas. After only a few weeks later, magic happened and the music video was produced below, which was a huge accomplishment for us all in giving back to our community as Filipino Americans. It’s what we hope to continue to do with the JustRight Project.
The offline celebration of “The APL Song” became one of the first big Myspace launch events in August of 2004 that we produced with Jerry Meng, Polo Molina and several production companies working alongside Ginelsa’s team, with both Myspace.com co-founders Chris DeWolfe and Tom Anderson attending with many of you.
Watch the recap of the event below:
Watch “The APL Song” music video belowi a couple times not only to spot funny cameos by some of us, but for the deeper meaning in the synopsis of the video with the veterans and share it with family members, co-workers or friends who haven’t seen it yet. As I am guilty of it myself, sometimes we get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our everyday lives that we forget about taking care of and respecting our elders as much as we should.
I really enjoyed every part of picking all the clothing in the video, working as the temporay Little Brown GIrl stylist for the day. (Thanks Des/Marv for letting us borrow the awesome two-tone barong for the video
Speaking of the Peas, as you’ve heard, today they will be performing for the 2nd time during the halftime of the Steelers vs. Packers Superbowl today for one of the biggest performances in their lives. They have exactly 12 minutes to turn the halftime into a party that entertains us all. will.i.am hopes to reach 1MM followers to give a unique experience to fans worldwide tuning in. Follow him on twitter.com/iamwill for up to date updates from the field today. Congrats to APL for being the first Filipino to ever perform during a Superbowl! We’ll be watching proudly. It makes re-watching and listening to your verses on “The APL Song” all the more special…
I don’t think any of us have a better view than will’s on the field below. It’s fun to follow the action in realtime on his twitter page. Kim Kardashian and Justin Bieber already re-tweeted about the excitement of today’s unique show “It’ll be a party in the middle of the game,” Fergie promises. “All of the sudden, whether your team is winning or losing, we want to make you have a good time. That’s our goal.” She adds, “It’s a gig that everybody wants, It feels so natural with us partnering up with the NFL because we’re sports fans and we write a lot of sports anthems. It’s what we do. It’s a good combination – like chips and salsa.”
BEP’s frontman Will adds what’s JustRight to him on this big day:
“So when Fergie is doing her part, and (other group members apl.de.ap and Taboo) are doing their part, wouldn’t it be awesome to send a tweet to all the people that are following … bring the people even closer to the stage.” He says.You’ve got cameras. On my little tweet machine and my little camera and my phone, why can’t I really (connect with followers)? … Kids are watching the TV, and they’re on their phones. Why not really have that engagement to continue that? So that will be the first time that’s ever been done (during a Super Bowl halftime). I’m proud of that.”
Follow & respond to will directly at twitter.com/iamwill
Curious as to what you think of the show and music video, comment below:
p.s. Jimmy (Taboo) – I promise you won’t get another text about the Superbowl outfit today, just make sure it’s a good one and not bright purple.

Kim Cruz, aka Bruce Lee, aka “Yes he’s a guy named Kim” – will always hold the title of one of my favorite co-workers in life. We’ve experienced so many fun experiences in the office but most memorable – outside the office. Kim created the new role of brand management at events that luckily opened the door for others to travel with and after him. From Miami to Atlanta to actually being in the office trafficing ads – Kim has been there to help when needed the most & ready to have a good time. (See his amazing step-dance moves below
Thanks again for donating and being there again, I think now people will believe you are Filipino!
Congratulations also goes out to Kim and Cass, who will celebrate their highschool romance with a wedding this November! Like we say on the JustRight intro of DJ Jay-P’s new mix CD (that you will be getting soon!)
“Love is what happens when the time is… JustRight….
Don’t forget to think of Kim while your choosing your favorite station at his company’s website: www.pandora.com<
….beautiful people making sure everyone has a place to call home.”
Thanks to one of our favorite people in the Myspace office, Janet Huynh for donating to our cause. So happy to get the support from people you respect on your team.
Such amazing work that the Couples for Christ and ANCOP Organizations have done for years. While we are dollars away from reaching our goal of donations for our JustRight Project at www.firstgiving.com/justright of at least the cost of the building of one home at $2300.00, we wanted to share their pictures again of the previous villages they have built. The Aytona Village groundbreaking (start of construction will begin in March.)
…beautiful people supporting a wonderful cause…”
