I don't have any grudge or ax to grind with Malik B. If it came out that way, sorry. The bottom line is he has an oppurtunity to be a part of something great and he shits on it. I get tired of hearing people talk about how he doesn't get enough credit, how "the show was great last night but I wish Malik was there", etc. Malik is never there, his participation with The Roots is marginal, and I don't really care if he continues to record with them or not. That's all I'm really trying to say, I may have gotten a bit too personal on my last post and I apologize. There's no need to take it there on a website, if I ever met you in person perhaps we could discuss it for real. My only point was that The Roots will continue to be great with or without Malik B., people tend to overstate his importance.
