It ain't really a "vs.", I just know okayplayers love that "vs." sh*t.
FYI, the groups have a heater together called "Passion" which will be a white label Blackalicious single shipping initially only to college radio on Aug. 20. Fat Beats will probably distribute it and the 12" will be in stores mid-Sept. They are also touring together this fall and I believe have a Sept. date at Irving Plaza in NYC.
Blackalicious also have a heater called "Nowhere Fast" produced by the incomparable ?uestlove. Hi-tek also just knocked out a track with his girl Jonell on the hook. The Jazzies & Jag are also on separate tracks for the album. The Blackalicious album "Blazing Arrows" will be in stores January 2002. They aren't official okayartists right now but its in this particular post cuz its pertains to okaybidness.

Word? I'm so glad MCA is going all out for them just like they did for Dice riggedy-Raw!
Funniest quotes of 2001:
"Hip Hop is a Black American/Latino thing, and if you can't blaze in the states with the origonators of the culture, those who know the culture best, those to whom it's not an import or "exotic", then you can get a dick." -QtheBuggid1
"America is hip hop, bottom line. This is where it started, and this is where it stay...but as a whole, the american hip hop audience is much more knowledgeable than the audience in germany, france, or any other country. Thats just the way it is." - 3XKrazy

If we're comparing Blackalicious' "Nia" to Dilated's "The Platform," it's no contest, Nia wins hands down. That album is pretty dope, and is very, VERY underrated in my opinion. The Platform has its moments, but it wasn't what I expected. I thought it woulda been better.
