Posted by ReD POet, Tue Sep-01-09 10:31 PM

i brought this same subject up just a few weeks ago and was basically told i was an idiot for thinking the album would actually be promoted.
186045, welcome to okayplayer!
Posted by allison, Wed Sep-02-09 06:20 PM


sorry to hear you were called an idiot by my fellow okps

these days itunes and word or mouth is the only way artists albums are promoted unless of course you are kanye, jay-z etc etc

Quest was waaaaaaaaaaaay ahead when he and Angie (Stress) came up with the idea for Okayplayer

Okayplayer promotes, promotes, promotes

sorry if i am babbling but i am doing 6 things and taking the time to reply to you

ciao
186075, actually www.duckdown.com
Posted by Justin_Maldonado_7, Sat Sep-05-09 12:35 PM
was the first hiphop site started by a group...then came okayplayer a year or 2 later...

duckdown.com came on in like 1995 or 1996
186228, yeah but how many people go to their site
Posted by 1-UP, Tue Sep-22-09 03:03 AM
vesus okp, one of the top hip hop sites on the net period.
186043, no offense, but that's the wrong way of thinking
Posted by justin_scott, Wed Sep-02-09 05:27 PM
how do you plan on supporting your favorite artists if you won't buy their album?


i don't see any press for raekwon. if you look around, it's not just the roots. and from what i've heard, the album is coming out in november, so you don't want to promote an album (esp. nowadays) too early , esp. when they have built in promotion with fallon 5 nights a week! now, if we don't see or hear anything by early october.....
186046, RE: no offense, but that's the wrong way of thinking
Posted by ReD POet, Wed Sep-02-09 08:16 PM
? where have you been? this is there last album on def jam and if was not going to buy another roots album you think i would even be here? F CK def jam
186047, you said you wouldn't buy another album from def jam period
Posted by justin_scott, Wed Sep-02-09 10:51 PM
that means you are saying you won't buy any album def jam puts out, roots related or not.


and as far as where i've been, i've been here since 1998. where have you been?
186048, RE: you said you wouldn't buy another album from def jam period
Posted by ReD POet, Thu Sep-03-09 10:35 AM
no i have every roots album and the roots only have two albums with def jam and how i got over will be there last on the label i will buy but after that they wont get a dime from me and i m pretty sure the band will sign else where now do you understand?
186053, album doesn't drop until 2010 n/m

186125, How much promotion do you want for a group...
Posted by Buddy_Gilapagos, Thu Sep-10-09 05:13 PM
that has 10 records and is on TV every night during the biggest industry slump ever? I think the Roots have long ago stop worrying about a label's promotion of their album will make or break them.

the music industry can't do shit to good music. its out there and its going strong. your problem is your looking in the wrong places for it and def jam isn't beholden to anyone. try expanding your tastes and you wont be so wrapped up in some lame ass 'fuck def jam' diatribe.

Posted by deepthought74, Thu Oct-01-09 06:29 PM
Red Poet...I see your point...all of this bullshit being pushed...labels not promoting quality hip hop...just do your part and support your artist...that's all we can do...Ghost got no promotion for his new album...NONE...Roots albums dont get much promotion anyway so I'm used to that...as long as they keep making music I will live...Looking forward to that new Roots album BTW....
186360, this has NOTHING to do with people having no balls....jeez...smh
Posted by justin_scott, Sat Oct-03-09 06:30 PM
what does having balls have to do with the album being pushed back??? that was questlove's decision. so, if we all had balls, what would we do? force him to put it out now???


post better than that

186436, Going Out On A Limb Here, But.......
Posted by hellokittyslut, Mon Oct-12-09 08:32 PM
In todays time I just tend to think most people get there information online. While there are ways to promote an artist online I would just think that if a person was interested in an artist they would do a search for said artist online and get that sort of info (new albums, tours, ect.) I think were a bit past needing street teams and whatnot.

Just my $0.02
186467, RE: Going Out On A Limb Here, But.......
Posted by MusicBrain, Sun Oct-18-09 01:37 PM
They didnt promote Game Theory, which is one of the greatest albums I've ever heard. Rising Down got the same treatment. Def Jam only wastes money on their "dummy acts". As is shallow artists that will sell to the kids being taught to be "dummies" by mainstream influence. Unfortunately, that mainstream influence promotes ignorance-heavy+low-quality product.
