178348, Dear Okayplayer.
Posted by , Tue Aug-26-08 04:37 PM

i hope you plan to push and promote actual OkayArtists
as much as youre pushing solange.
especially considering she has nothing to do with the site, really.

i usually dont get emails alerting me to when OkayArtists are droppin somethin new
(then again, usually i know already, but lord knows i cant keep up with everything)
so to see an email from OKP about solange?
meh.
eh.

id like to see the same energy go into The Roots projects
skillz
chrisette michele
leela (when she drops somethin, dammit)
ledisi
common
mos and kweli an 'em
hell. i dont think erykah got this much of a push from this site.
and she supposedly has 2 other projects comin out.

i mean, yall do you
you know ima support for the most part anyways
but lets save all the hyping and promotion for actual Artists that are on this site
or at least for someone doing something original.

OR
if you cant take anything else from this
please learn not to overexpose an artist early in the game.
go hard to promote what you love
but not TOO hard.
lol.

sorry for the bitching
but theres some honest feedback to be found in this.



With love and respect,
Ericka.

178355, lol ....damn gurl. she's gettin under your skin like THAT??

178356, its not even solange. its just the massive PUSH. ive never seen OKP
Posted by , Tue Aug-26-08 07:48 PM

rally behind even its OWN artists like this.

shit is irritating.

at least do the same for the artists that i actually come to this site to stan over.
for real.

178357, i dunno nat. i mean, nu amerykah got some HEAVY push on this site.
Posted by Airbreed, Tue Aug-26-08 07:55 PM
granted, badu didn't get the wallpaper treatment. but she had banners, anchored links and a straight up BAN thrown at folks for talking about her album before her album dropped.

a BAN yo'.

niggas posts got deleted simply cuz they were merely TALKING about her allbum.

if that aint a push, i dunno what is.

lol


178362, iont know. i didnt get any nu amerykah emails.
Posted by , Tue Aug-26-08 09:27 PM

but i see what you're saying. i'd love to hear updates on OKAYartists, even though they don't have an album coming out in the next couple of months. seeing the solange email and the big ass banner kinda tripped me out

178358, but folk get on quest for not making money off this site.
Posted by FireBrand, Tue Aug-26-08 07:55 PM
If every nerd on here has adblock how do you monetize a site with the reach this one has?

How?

It prolly costs them thousands per month to run this site and they are giving it for free.

at some point he's going to have to consider making us pay.

you want to pay?

178360, exactly....
Posted by HighVoltage, Tue Aug-26-08 08:21 PM
you think they sent out email blasts and branded the homepage just because they are a fan of her music?

of course they are gonna monetize the site anyway they can.

your registration is free, you want to keep it that way?
178361, i mean, if youre getting money, get money. but lets not over do it.

I stand with you Natural.

I know its business but i didn't like it one bit.

It fell like Jay-Z told these okplayers to promote mad hard on some she is my sister-in-law shit.

I would have love to seen a push for an album like this for the actual OKayartists. She hasn't done shit for this place.

Whatever though. Economy is shot and times is hard. I won't complain anymore, I just wanted Natural Mystic to know that I feel the same way she does
178410, THANK YOU. I understand its business, but gatdammit.

she's here cause I BROUGHT HER HERE.


thank you.

178448, ?uest, thats fine. all were saying is DONT OVERDO IT.
Posted by , Thu Aug-28-08 09:53 AM

please realize you dont have to SHOVE someone down our throat for decent promotion.
the lesson anchor and subsequent banter throughout GD was already enough.
banners and emails and forcing dan to go into GD like he REALLY wanted to be in there? lol. too much son.

at this point, this is just overdoing it.

but its yo site. do whatchawanna do.
i caint tell you who to sock it to.

you know i love you boy.
lol.
