16620, is ?uest doing a beat generation jawn?
Posted by guest, Wed May-09-01 12:19 AM
...y'all have probably heard about the new Pete Rock "Petestrumentals" release in the BBC Beat Generation series. I thought I read somewhere that ?uestlove would be hooking up one as well, but the BBC site doesn't mention his name. anybody know what's up?

Jay Dee and Pete Rock CDs. I'm lookin forward to all of these projects. Anyone know when the next one is coming?
16622, That's a little bit shady....

The next in line is "Funk Rock" compiled by DJ Spinna & Monty Burns and that is dropping in late May early June - but, i'm not sure if the are one of the Beat Generation series.....

King Britt has started on his Beat Generation and the guests
are...Schooly D, Breakstra and Cut Chemist.

Then i think Marley Marl and then.....James Poyser.

And the Jazzy Jeff record with Jill Scott, James Poyser, Pat Metheney, Roy Ayres & Premier.

The shady Part:
About ?uest's involment - i don't think that bbe has an signature from quest on paper so, let's dream on---->>>

Let's say that bbe is famous for NOT clearing all the stuff they used earlier on their compilations but we have to wait and see becouse quest himself is quiet as a mouse about this.........

well they are called barely breaking even (BBE) music. and what do you mean by marketing. i don't think they are relying on the tradtional marketing means to get these records sold. Jay D and Pete both have huge underground followings (esp. Pete) and since they own their own studios its a symbiotic relationship with the label. I don' imagine there is a whole lot of that "label pays for studio time and artist hands over master's" type stuff going on at BBE. I would wager that the producers create music at their own pace and submit it to a label that gives them a chance to get their material out to fans without the label bull$hit. I think pete can sell over 200,000 in japan alone. bbe has been around for over a decade and they have been instrumental (pun intended) in keeping black music at the forefront of the british music scene. i.e. a bbe in europe is like a def jam release here...you are going to at least try to cop a listen based on the strength of reputation.


"Observe the ugly mess which most men make of their sex lives-and observe the mess of contradictions which they hold as their moral philosophy. One proceeds from the other. Love is our response to our highest values-and can be nothing else. Let a man corrupt his values and his view of existence, let him profess that love is not self-enjoyment, but self denial, that virtue consists, not of pride, but of pity or pain or weakness or sacrifice, that the noblest love is born, not of admiration, but of charity, not in response to values, but in response to flaws-and he will have cut himself in two. His body will not obey him, it will not respond, it will make him impotent toward the woman he professes to love and draw him to the lowest type of whore he can find. His body will always follow the ultimate logic of his deepest convictions; if he believes that flaws are values, he has damned existence as evil and only the evil will attact him. He has damned himself and he will feel that depravity is all he is worth enjoying. He has equated virtue with pain and he will feel that his body has vicious desires of its own which his mind cannot conquer, that sex is sin, that true love is a pure emotion of spirit. And then he will wonder why lover brings him nothing but boredom, and sex-nothing but shame." -taken from 'Atlas Shrugged' by Ayn Rand

And the funny thing is about this whole BBE thing is that every time i see an ad about this is that new artists and producers are being added to the line up. I saw Hi-Tek on the list. Is 88 keys on there anywhere? if he is I can't remember.

I wrote this, Brainchild performed it:

"the proceeds were an early 80's supergroup managed by philip michael thomas of miami vice fame. they were so named because pretty much all of the "proceeds" went to feeding his 37 kids. it included the brother question on the drums, herve villachez on the upright bass, the lead singer from drs (gangsta lean) on lead vocals, ralph from the muppets on keys and that chick from john salley's show on electric tambourine" -- McScoobySnack on Kyleeezeee's question "who was the proceed drummer?"

These were the points that the "white dude" had bragging about his "real estate" career. I KNOW THIS IS QUESTLOVE!!!!!1

"*25 Years of Quality Service (experience is the difference)"
Except for the 25 years, sounds like quest

"*Full Time Professional (I'm available when you need me)"
Yep, quest

"*Good Listener (tell me your real estate goals & dreams)"
except for real estate, thats him again

"*I turn your dreams into reality"
See: next shit he touches in the studio

"*Consistent Multi-Million $$ Producer (I get the job done)"
WHOA, questlove?

you secret is safe with me, ummm, ?uestlove
16637, yoooooooooooo

Consistent Multi-Million $$ Producer (I get the job done)

That's classic.


16638, I would just like to say...
Posted by loryn, Wed May-09-01 02:14 PM
that i love the idea of the Beat Generation series. I think it is both innovative and exciting. I have Welcome to Detroit, and it is one of the best albums I have (TFA and BOBS are tied for first) in my miniscule collection (about 70).

mind you, a ?uestlove installment of this series will make me smile even more. I will be beaming from ear to ear if he does this.

but if he doesn't I still think he's awesome :-)
