12. "now that the music portion of songwriting is done on my end..."
In response to Reply # 0


          

i start tracking songs in april. although i'm sure guest people and other band memebers will contribute. as well as all my joints not make it. i start with a vision of how i want the album to be.....


let's look at the first day of tracking in "do you want more??!!" diary december 1993:

i saw this:

THE ROOTS. HOMEGROWN. DGC GEFFEN COMING SPRING OF 1994.

side one:

-it's coming
-the ultimate (not that one but another one)
-distortion to static
-mellow my man
-dat skat

side two:

-tighten your cipher
-jawn with digables
-represent (whose instrumental strangly wound up on that roots instrumental bootleg)
-west coast skit (first thing on the mike, riq does dead on too short imitation)

side three:

-flattery (riq's posse cut with himself as Jb's, tip, busta, chuck d, kool g, and special ed -essaywhuman (note on page: riq don't want to do this so we might can it)
-joint with black sheep.
-"....." (a song that we did frequently in concert with a chorus that went "to the beat y'all...we rock on and on..." did it on teen summit)
-"hangin round da way" (my solo joint...you heard correct. written by scott and his boy kam)

side four:

-slow joint from last night aka jodeci (we gave birth to "silent treatment" at last night's rehersal, must show them that this could be a hit if we did it slowly)
-cassandra wilson jawn.
-the session pt 2 (shit actually was dope...but too long and unorganized)
-shorty no mas duet (make it like cube/yoyo man's world jawn where she comes on top for critic acclaim angle )
-poem

so as it stands now:


INTRODUCING THE ROOTS. MCA. SPRING 2002.

side one
-start with short urs poem instead of end.
-introduce (5 part song in which each memeber talks about himself and music reflects lifestyle. ie scratch beatboxing, soulquarian joint for me, keyboard thug synth for kamal and so on)
-kelo's joint. fast paced 113bpm spgtti wstrn joint.
-come on down joint (3 beat changes, use full larry orchestra)
-"want some more" (underdeveloped TFA song that i put under major construction, make riq do T pendergrass voice)
-change the style jawn (SOB on acid shit)
-????
-????
-????


side 2
-ragtime jawn me and james worked on in jamaica. either that or the TFA clones style joint we never finished
-skip jawn (riq rhyming over a record skipping off in various meters)
-jay shit (me singing in cher voice bending machine)
-single
-single
-single (i put em way later to force you to listen to album)
-tour de force epic at the end.


there...i ruined it for you. all the tricks and surprises. be funny to see how true this album stays to the vision i have for it. (closest i came to it was "illadelph")

i'll answer this post in 5 months.

and for those complaining. after i heard "pussy galore" you will not be mad at riq at all for this solo joint.

THEJAWN BEAT OF THE MONTH MARCH!
http://www.thejawn.com/realaudio/botm0301.ram
PRODUCED BY BRAINCHILD!
HIGHLY ANTICIPATED! LISTEN TO THIS BEAT OR ILL KICK YOUR ASS!

de la "whats more" (2001 remix)
VON P:
Tell me whats more creative
coloring books, a catchy hook
or ressurecting whats outdated
POS:
Tell me what's more old-fashioned
Lemonade, a black man's fade
Or a kiss that's soaked in passion
DOVE:
Tell me what's more secretive
Love looks, a diary book
Or the De La style us speakers give
VON P.:
Tell me whats more outstanding
importaint firsts, your first childs birth
or the album i've got in planning
POS:
Tell me what's more off-tempo
Wearing pink, a fizzy Lipton drink
Or a brother with acne and dimples
DOVE:
Tell me what's more confusing
A Rubik's cube, a dusted dude
Or a figure in which one is choosing
Tell me, what's more?

In response to Reply # 12


          

i start tracking songs in april.
although i'm sure guest people
and other band memebers will
contribute. as well as all
my joints not make it.
i start with a vision
of how i want the
album to be.....


let's look at the first day
of tracking in "do you
want more??!!" diary december 1993:


i saw this:

THE ROOTS. HOMEGROWN. DGC GEFFEN COMING
SPRING OF 1994.

side one:

-it's coming
-the ultimate (not that one but
another one)
-distortion to static
-mellow my man
-dat skat

side two:

-tighten your cipher
-jawn with digables
-represent (whose instrumental strangly wound up
on that roots instrumental bootleg)

-west coast skit (first thing on
the mike, riq does dead
on too short imitation)

side three:

-flattery (riq's posse cut with himself
as Jb's, tip, busta, chuck
d, kool g, and special
ed if we didn't have clearence
nightmares over the artists he
imitated we woulda been stars
in 93. well over a
novelty so i guess all
things happen for a reason.)

-essaywhuman (note on page: riq don't
want to do this so
we might can it)
-joint with black sheep.
-"....." (a song that we did
frequently in concert with a
chorus that went "to the
beat y'all...we rock on and
on..." did it on teen
summit)
-"hangin round da way" (my solo
joint...you heard correct. written by
scott and his boy kam)


side four:

-slow joint from last night aka
jodeci (we gave birth to
"silent treatment" at last night's
rehersal, must show them that
this could be a hit
if we did it slowly)

-cassandra wilson jawn.
-the session pt 2 (shit actually
was dope...but too long and
unorganized)
-shorty no mas duet (make it
like cube/yoyo man's world jawn
where she comes on top
for critic acclaim angle love when women come on
top])
-poem

so as it stands now:


INTRODUCING THE ROOTS. MCA. SPRING 2002.


side one
-start with short urs poem instead
of end.
-introduce (5 part song in which
each memeber talks about himself
and music reflects lifestyle. ie
scratch beatboxing, soulquarian joint for
me, keyboard thug synth for
kamal and so on)
-kelo's joint. fast paced 113bpm spgtti
wstrn joint.
-come on down joint (3 beat
changes, use full larry orchestra)

-"want some more" (underdeveloped TFA song
that i put under major
construction, make riq do T
pendergrass voice)
-change the style jawn (SOB on
acid shit)
>-????
>-????
>-????
>
>
>side 2
>-ragtime jawn me and james worked
>on in jamaica. either that
>or the TFA clones style
>joint we never finished
>-skip jawn (riq rhyming over a

there must be a reason why i'm not allowed to print what was on side 3 and siade 4 of this homegrown album.

after 4 attempts, there is no dice. i feel like that porky pig skit when he tries to blow out the candle to go to sleep but when he closes his eyes it lights back up....

urgh!

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

you forgot to do the tracklisting with the numbers they left of at. It would have been a more realistic joke. I don't have the cd near me right now, but what number did they leave of at? track # 101 should be like a schooling type of song. Maybee The Lesson pt.4?
