Hope we still hear Boots on vocals somewhere, the film was awesome but I love him as an emcee too.

album features tune-yards, e-40, killer mike and more. my heads kinda flipped at seeing The Coup on Interscope Records in 2018.

Boots mentions how the early sound of The Coup was more about what they thought the public wanted (samples and programmed drums) and throughout the years their live show created an energy and identity of its own. I think their last three albums or so have been moreso about translating the live show energy on record.

I also meant to say above "that was a great INTERVIEW" - I already said the movie was dope and meant to add that your interview was excellent.

Good interviews tempt me to go back to interviewing again ha ha

Sorry To bother You just so perfectly captured the spirit of the music Boots has produced for 25 years. It's almost like seeing Raekwon and Ghost co-direct a classic mob movie. I don't think any other hip-hop affiliated movie comes close.

10. "definitely"
In response to Reply # 6


  

          

been a coup fan since pick a bigger weapon (went back and got all their earlier stuff) the message has always been great to me and the music is awesome too.

movie was so great and fun. reminded me so much of their music. had to re-listen to all their albums after watching the movie. have to say that boots is so consistent with his message. much of what you see in the movie boots has been talking about since their first album.

the sorry to bother you album now makes much more sense after watching the movie. i liked it when it came out but not as much as their earlier stuff. ive kept some songs in rotation and the album has definitely grown on me.

cant wait for the soundtrack.

On Genocide and Juice, The Coup had a song (Fat Cats and Bigger Fish) where megarich people took on a Black voice to rap and do reggae about their activities as exploitative capitalists. The Trump character did his in a reggae voice. That’s a hilarious inversion of what Boots did later with the white voice in Sorry To Bother You.

i think you mean "Pimps" where even donald trump raps. its hilarious that even back then he was looked down on.

definitely thought of that song during that scene. i wish someone would make a video of "pimps"

I absolutely loved the movie. I felt it was great film-making beyond even the content and humor. He did a genuinely great job as a director, maybe even a better job a a director than as a writer. The shots, the locations, the perspectives and use of surrealism were so on point.

it was cool getting some more insight from boots. a lot of interviews ive seen keep touching the same points. this one covered some more ground.

did i read that right? besides the soundtrack there's a new coup album on the way too??
