"wu tang dissed the roots!"


  

          

a while back masta killa dissed questlove in the song "triumph" when he said "the dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum"
what he meant was that questlove is dumb. also he implies that roots fans are also dumb because they listen to questloves music.

but wait! it doesnt end there! on the new album the gza calls out questlove on the song "chamber music. he said "Snares and kicks, off the project bricks, It's no act, a producer play the role with drumsticks"
its pretty obvious that hes calling questlove a fake person. he also implies that he isnt a real producer, hes only "playing a role"

i dont really know what to think of all this but the wu really mean business. i recently read an interview where the RZA said that he wanted to FIGHT questlove. he specifically said he would "kick that fuckin fro right the fuck off his big head" as if that wasnt bad enough, U-God felt the need to add these words "yo god, im small, but once they got him on the floor, yeah, i mean, yo i'd i jump in there too, get in a few kicks and shit"

Of course we can't get anywhere as a people. We're still embracing our bad habits from slave culture that we now celebrate as customs. What does this more so than rap music? I just hope these brothers can put this all aside.

Why would they diss The Roots when the Wu-Tang Grave Diggaz was freestyling over Rahzel beatboxing? Com'on...Even in the session RZA said "we're kicking it with The Roots." They were even complimenting Rahzel beatboxing. How are they going to diss each other when they were freestyling with The Roots?

RZA body is too small while his ego is obviously too fucking big...

I think its funny that all these cats actually copped the album.....there is no place for Wu in my life anymore....36 Chambers and thats it.

One.

"Twenty five years ago, there were no rap records, no samples, and no break beats. Then came the Bronx boys--the original b-boys--a generation of young men from one of the most desolate urban landscapes in the 70's America. Within five years, they had created one of the world's most potent pop cultures...."

you need some Tical, Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, Iron Man, Liquid Swords, & The Pillage. If you feel the 36 Chambers then you gotta feel at the very least one of these albums.

who cares about the Wu.
I mean,....really!
Maybe if they stop trying to "come back", and just be blowin up the spot, then maybe they wouldn't be such sour-pusses.
They just need something to divert their fans' attention from their wackness,....sort of like a red-herring.

did he say quest's name?

I think he's making a point which could be looked upon as with there not really being live musicians in hip hop, the producer is the drummer, the producer is the rhythm section.

a simple and again vague statement . . .nothing specific and if there is a specific callout how come you didn't post it?

>its pretty obvious that hes calling
>questlove a fake person. he

word fam'. how's them vague-ass statements gonna' be disses against The Roots? sound like mad bullshit.
but you know, there was some shit I was hearing a good while back on the streets of a show in Philly where O.D.B. done interupted The Roots' stage performance, and in response Black Thought and others of the Roots crew went and brought the ruckus to ODB. rumors though, but I heard that shit here then I heard the same thing there. on the back of a bus, niggas in back of me rapping 'bout it while I was walking down Center City, etcetera. so there could be unsettled beef.

Now being the knowledgable brothers that they are, wouldn't they realize that West African music is based off drummming patterns. Slaves used drums to communicate with each other by beating a code.


He just called all Africans dumb!!!!!!!

yeah, but nobody over here gets that deep with the drum, at least I dont know about them. the line was describing how heads listen to songs just for the beat and don't realize how ignorant the lyrics are.

it's not like this beef is anything new. the gza's line "i'm not a black activist on a so-called scholar's dick" is obviously aimed at the black thought. but back to the masta killer dis...this is hardly the first time he's had a few choice words to say about quest. from "glaciers of ice":

dead these drums
cause the battle was won by swords being swung
slicing with a vocal
from the international vocalist
ya style is too local
to fuck with this

25. "This beef is getting serious..."
In response to Reply # 20


          

i didn't believe this but then i started thinking back and we're lookin' at some l.l. vs. moe dee stuff here. peep this:

"Thick snare, I'm feelin' like a snail in the ocean"- obviously saying that ?uest is so weak you can't even hear him playing

"Crack your soul like bottles, leave you stiff as models"- can the solquarian reference be anymore violent or graphic?

"Lets take it back to '79"- the only thing this could mean is that they think we should go back to before the roots existed.

"So then we moved to ShoalinLand"- You don't have to read between the lines to know they are saying that at least they don't live in illdelphia.

its been building for years. dont forget these lines from winter wars...

"the phat lp with cappachino on the wax...put all the other lps back on the shelf"
cappadonna obviously stated that the wu tang albums were better than any roots album. he even urged the listener to put the other albums away. what he means is this: "put the roots albums away, wu tang is better"

"mcs submit to the will as i kill your juvenile freestyle"
masta killa clearly said that unless black though and malik b "submit" to him, he wants to MURDER dice raw.


"life is a test many quest the universe, and throughout it all i felt the joy and the hurt"
did you catch that one? killah priest called quest the root of all of lifes problems

stop it. we know you're being sarcastic, but you're adding fuel to the fire. they're actually getting more hyped about this proposed beef and they'll be quoting you on this.

23. "I hope y'all are joking"
In response to Reply # 22


          

I hope this is a joke that I am falling for cuz I am fairly new to the boards.
I have never taken the lines you all are quoting as shots at The Roots.

"The dumb are mostly intrigued by the drum."
With the Wu being knowledged based, I have always taken this to mean that people who don't understand the deeper lyrics of their songs are only caught up on and listening to the beats.

All the lines being quoted are too vague to be said that they were speaking about the Roots. The can be interpeted a bunch of different ways.

And am I the only person who reads liner notes? In TFA ?uest talks about them doing a show in which the Wu gets on stage with them and rock it. Specifically named RZA.

Come on y'all I stayed away from Okayplayer for so long cuz I figured it was full of young suburbanites who knew nothing about music. All I have seen up till now has been intellect based discussions. Somebody tell me I am missing the joke or that this is not the norm.

I swear yall are killin' me with these funny ass posts this week. I was rollin'... at first I thought you were serious and you really beleived that which was funny enough in itself but when I got to the quotes about fighting ?uest I saw that you were effin around.

"i recently read an interview where the RZA said that he wanted to FIGHT questlove. he specifically said he would "kick that fuckin fro right the fuck off his big head" as if that wasnt bad enough, U-God felt the need to add these words "yo god, im small, but once they got him on the floor, yeah, i mean, yo i'd i jump in there too, get in a few kicks and shit"

LOL.. kick that fro right off his head? Say word

"Naw Dammie don't start that shit!

Put watermellonstrawberryquiwi on my peepee

He was OBVIOUSLY saying that the Roots bit they shit and then left the scene and that Dice was on his Jock!

Also, I heard the reason ODB was in Philly (?uest's neighborhood) was because he was looking for ?uest himself! He was later quoted as saying "I'm the Big Black Baby Jesus! I know everything! I was on my way to the Fro-dudes house to handle his ass!"

I don't know guys, I'm beginning to believe the reason Jeflee is on this site is to spread the Wu message and convert Okayplayers into Wu Gambinos.

I know you WAY smarter than that....atleast I hope. Fans always hyping shyt up. I'm sorry if RZA REALLY called out Quest it would be headline news on some popular Rap mag and I read most of em and have never heard of it...so I'm more than doubtful it happened. As for the so-called rap disses..Kid..wtf do you just hear the word drum and automatically think Quest? None of those lyrics even made me think of anything that has to do with the Roots. Let's not make something out of nothing please...
