The fatherly advice flows freely on Street Outlaws: Memphis tonight as JJ Da Boss counsels his eldest son Doughboy ahead of a race with Ermis Concepcion.
Our exclusive clip opens with JJ Da Boss counseling Doughboy on his priorities in life.
He tells Doughboy, “Settle down, last time you went out first you turned the car over eight times, you know we got this passion that we love, racing, street racing, the most important thing about it is going home to your grandma, going home to your babies, going home to your wife…you understand?”
If you remember, Doughboy had a horrific crash that nearly killed him, and dad is giving his son the low down on how to manage his next race, which has the entire clan on edge.
In a separate interview, JJ Da Boss explains the setting and what is to come for his son.
“First up, round one, JJ’s arm drop…Doughboy is going against Ermis in this little all-wheel-drive crazy little turbo car. It’s his first time since his wreck that he will be going out first. Hoping the good Lord’s got him.”
JJ is walking on the track with Doughboy as he continues his lessons in life advice for his oldest child.
He says: “In life, if you are, you can have your heart right but if your head ain’t right you get run off a mountain…”
Doughboy seems to be hanging on every word and soaking it all up. He says, “Yes sir and I agree with that. I been there [and] done that.”
JJ Da Boss keep giving him the pep talk of surviving life, “You know what the old saying is? Only the strong survives? Nah. Only the smart stays alive in the streets.”
The match is set up as the cars queue up and Doughboy and racer Ermis Concepcion of Las Vegas, Nevada are pitted in opposite each other in round one race one.
JJ inspects each vehicle as he gets them at an equal starting position then he drops his arms and they take off.
Make sure to tune in tonight to see if Doughboy keeps up his luckier streak and JJ gets “dat money” for the Memphis crew.
Normally Doughboy drives “Lilly” chop top, a big block with a small tire, as that car is painted blue. But this race he is driving a red vehicle.
Note that both cars in the race have a missing headlight, as Ermis’ silver car has a right light and Doughboy has a left light.
Doughboy’s papa JJ Da Boss is an enigma where very little factual information is available about him, his large family and his allegedly storied background.
What we do know is that JJ Da Boss has eleven children and five grandchildren. He is married to Tricia Day aka “Midget” who races on the streets with him.
She is not the mother of all eleven kids. That is another JJ Da Boss mystery. Precious Cooper is his cousin, a very successful racer in her own right, who helps with the financial dealings in their crew.
