"in reference to Mercedes latest journal entry"


          

if haven't read the latest Jazzy Journal entry, please do so. bascially there's a rumor going around that Erykah Badu is planning a "Black Sisterhood Tour". the tour would include, Erykah, Sunshine Anderson, Macy Gray and Jill Scott (if she agrees to do it, c the journal entry). now of course, if u've ever been 2 the Black Lily b4, u would definitely find this interesting if not slightly disturbing. obviously, Merc thought so or she wouldn't have wrote about it the journal. basically, the idea and name of the tour is a little 2 closely related to the Black Lily. what makes it even more interesting is that all of those artists (w/ the exception of Sunshine Anderson) have performed at the Black Lily more than once. so basically, i wanna get everyone's opinion on this. is this a rip off or just a coincidence? would u go c the tour? do u think it would b different if it were a Black Lily Tour and it included those artist mentioned as well as the Lily regulars (Jazzies, Flo Brown, Jag, 3 7000 9, Kindred)? and what about Black Lily, isn't that a spin off of the Lilth Fair name? what do the Roots and other OkayArtist feel about this, having not only worked w/ both the Lily fam and those artists, but being friends as well? for the record, i love the Black Lily showcase i can't wait till it comes back 2 nyc area. just want 2 know what u all think about this.

"IF" is a big word.

Maybe things happen for a reason,It's a explanation for everything.

when I heard something about a concert involved Badu, Jill Scott and Angie Stone. Could this be what you are referring to? Maybe there will be other acts, but it sounded like those three were a done deal.

You want my love and you can't deny

You turn down love like it's really bad
You can't give what you never had
Well bless your soul, you can fool a few
But, I know the truth and so do you
You can't hide love, you can't now
You can't hide love, it's got ya
Betcha you want my love, I betcha
You can't hide feeling inside
You can't pretend there's nothing there
Girl, I look in your eyes, I see you care
So why not stop trying to run and hide
You won't find out, if you never try,
You can't hide love, you can't now
You can't hide love, it's got ya
Betcha want my love, I betcha
You can't hide feeling inside
Love has found the time to kiss you
can you find the time to listen
Life found the time to bug you
can you find the time for blessing.-ewf

11. "fuck it"
In response to Reply # 8


          

black is black. we're all black people. whether we be a lily, a part of a sisterhood, a part of a panther party, a part of men united, blackwhatthefuckever....etc. u can't put a copyright on the "black" moniker!..... just as you couldn't put one on the term "african american", white, indian, chinese, spanish....it's just preposterous. and the words "black sisterhood" in no way shape or form conjure up the thought of the "black lily" to me. outside of okayplayers, philadelphians and people in the music industry, i don't know of anyone that's even heard of black lily....and i know alot of mufuckas. yes, it's a part of a movement that the jazzy's and others have probably busted their asses to bring to the forefront......but i do not believe that an established artist like erykah has any need to blatanly bite her sisters. it makes no sense. and even if she did is it gonna make the black lily and less "black"? would the jazzies feel better if they were asked to be on the tour? would that make it okay? i mean if u "ask" me i think it's called "reaching".

about the black lily thing...I don't get the 'biting' or the 'anger' involved..

BUT, why I was saying I'm sick of it...completely personal opinion...I'm sick of female emcees having to dress a certain way to be 'sold'...I'm sick of seeing females compromise their art for 'business'..I would not call a tour of one genre an all encompossing phrase of "black sisterhood"...because if you ask me...their leaving out a big part of the music a lot of sisters listen to...I agree that there could be another tour of the sorts I was questioning..but with all those names listed up there ^^, why couldn't it be a lilith fair type gig? With multiple stages...multiple arts being shown...Erykah has that pull..MACY has that pull...shit Jill does too...So why be closed to only those artists? I see something big that could happen..exposing 'black sisterhood' to a large genre of everything black encompasses...but that's just my ramblings..and not anyone elses...excuse me.


Much love,
Kyle

every tour can't be every thing to everybody. then there would only be one tour in the entire universe



I

>a lilith fair type gig?

why does it have to be anything except for what erykah badu and her sponsors want it to be? maybe she doesnt' want it to be as diverse as lilith fair. maybe she only wants to include "sisters" of the same ilk. maybe she doesn't like any other artists that are women besides jill, macy and sunshine. maybe she could give a fuck what people think.


>With multiple stages...multiple arts being
>shown...Erykah has that pull..MACY has
>that pull...shit Jill does too...So
>why be closed to only
>those artists?

hello? maybe erykah doesn't want that kind of tour! she ain't sheryl crow. shit. why isn't black lily more encompassing of different genres?

I see something
>big that could happen..exposing 'black
>sisterhood' to a large genre
>of everything black encompasses...but that's
>just my ramblings..and not anyone
>elses...excuse me.


u know u my dawg but this ^ is a bunch of bull. black sisterhood really AIN'T GOT SHIT to do with music and touring....if u really wanna boil the water. and sister ain't got SHIT to do with everything that black encompasses. why does blackness & it's "encompassments" have to have ANYTHING to do with music?

.......i'm really leaving this post now....

It seems trivial for her to get bent out of shape about this. she "bit" the concept from lilith fair in the first place. it seems like another "women thing" issue, but anyway i hope she does not go out and burn bridges. she could be invited to join the tour. of well..

In response to Reply # 17


  

          

there was a reason for even the lilith fairs & the lilys to be begat in the first place...when u have male artists bein able to secure venues of the sheer strength of their reputations & their jock straps & women looked upon as only "glad-to-be-here" openin acts or scantily clad background singers...necessity becomes the grandmammy of invention

many lilith artists were consider'd too "indie" to sell out venues or even gain radio play...they had followings & i guess some thought they wouldn't follow them into certain arenas...& altho i am highly approvin of the lilys & liliths {some correlation betwixt the two {names}???}...the lilith fair strayed frum it's original line-up...u then began to see the likes of mya & missy {altho the feminists LOVE missy} whenever u DID see blk folk...& the lilys...well...u ever see the place when the roots were up in the spot???...it's like a estrogism had taken place...anyhow

if the jazzies are upset w/badu {i didn't read the entry...please forgive...i'm goin off of what i've read posted} for the proposed tour...i'd say they get out of the combo-collabo frame of thinkin anyhow...i mean...they were signed to a major label & are doin the quasi-chitlin circuit thing...nuthin wrong w/that...we've all got to eat...but tours are about money...& jill erykah & macy are goin to bring in money

& they all {w/the exception of sunshine anderson} have been affiliated w/okayplayer as well...so are we splittin hairs now???...why would u want just a big blk lily anyhow???...u seek to go one step ahead

i don't think it has a damned thing to do w/okayplayer anyhow

forget erkyah, they need to be talking to another record label!!! if i didn't come to okayplayer i would have never heard of jazzys. maybe she feels that if badu gets this "tour" going, it will overshadow everything they have been trying do for years. this isn't a business issue, this is a "black women drama" issue. you know how we get sometimes. feisty and out of control.

well, if u actually read the entry, then maybe u'd get more of an idea what the Jazzies r talking about. is it a lot of "women drama" as some folks have put it? maybe. but u have 2 at least admit that besides the word Black in the names, it does sound quite similar. Black Lily = a black women in music series. Erykah has been 2 and performed at Black Lily. is it a business? yes, of course it is. is it about money? yes, more definitely. r Jill, Erykah and Macy bigger names than Jazzyfatnastess, Jag and Flo Brown? of course they r. it just sounds weird is all. and it's still a rumor. who knows, Erykah might actually do the tour and she might invite Mercedes and Tracey 2 perform on the tour. then again, the tour may never come about. so we can't really say. but still, there r valid points brought up.

I have to thank everyone for sharing their views on this topic. Our journals are a place to share our thoughts and feelings. I don't expect for everyone or anyone to agree with what I'm saying. I simply share my point of view. I don't expect people to not buy tickets to see a concert starring, Erykah, Jill, Macy, Sunshine Anderson, etc. That was not the point I made.

I never once said don't support the "Black Sisterhood Tour" I just think they should call it something else. That's what I think. And I'll stand by that. As far as the whole Lilith Fair thing. It's a valid point. I responded to that issue in detail in today's journal. I never once called Erykah a biter. I read that on these posts. I didn't bring this issue to the boards, someone else did.

As far as this just being drama, well let me tell you this is definitely about business, something I also addressed in detail. For the record, I learned of these plans from multiple, reliable sources so I felt very comfortable in writing about it. The issue struck a chord in me, it moved me to write. This isn't the first time I've brought up delicate topics and it won't be the last. I apologize if that's too much for some people but it's a journal, honesty is the point of the whole thing.

I see most people are strongly against my point of view. I hope you at least read the entries and aren't just basing your opinions on those of other people. Once again, thanks for sharing.

how is "black sisterhood" equal to "black lily"...just as a name?

or is it more about the entire event than the name?

Much love,
Kyle

i think u are reachin
but in this case the refutation is not in ur favor

u ARE aware that outside of philly/nyc/& dc...& we're not talkin all of nyc & all of dc that the blk lily is well-known or heard of...that even the majority of ppl on this site have not been privy to a blk lily performance & if not for the OKAYPLAYER TOUR would not have been able to see jag...nou-ra...flo brown or either of u {the jazzys} perform...& u really can't have me believe u all took advantage of the opportunity to perform because the name of the tour was condusive to ur likings & not offensive to the blk lily name itself...even the concept of the okayplayer tour was not female artist friendly...the date i saw really served to showcase u all as marquee'd background singers & special added guests...the show was highly enjoyable...it was just a very dick-heavy tour

but mercedes...u cannot sit here & have me go off ur journal entries {the later 2} & think ur problem w/this tour stems solely frum it sharin the title "black" or that it encompasses some of the same talent as the blk lily showcase has...not DOES...HAS...should jag & flow spearhead a tour such as that then fine...i could see ur problem w/that on a few fronts...but blk lily is not responsible for the successes of erykah...macy or even jill...u know as well as i do {& i'm not in "the business"} that the likelihood of gettin platinum/grammy award nominated/winning artists to perform at such events highlightin fledglin or yet-to-be-signed artists is really unheard of...so are they really takin away frum u???...when had u all entertain'd the thought of venturin off the east coast w/blk lily???...is it that now if u were to it would appear as tho u were followin behind ur own idea???...i can understand that...i am in an 'arena' where i share my thoughts & worry constantly that i may appear on a stage & have someone say "man that's some of ________'s shit" knowin good & well that bitch took that shit frum me because i am about mines

hey i don't know...i don't understand the "it's business" aspect of the whole thing because nothing is fully one thing or another...we all have choices & rights to opinions...the bottomline is: u're all blk...u're all sisters...some of y'all blkasses gon make a whole lot more money doin some of the exact same things that the others of u are...some shit like that???...I'D take personal

it's cool u have every right to say how you feel. that's respected. i think if u stepped outside of the situation and viewed it objectively u "may" see that the two aren't as similar as they may seem. but then again maybe it is too close.

30. "I must disagree w/Merc"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Normally I agree with Mercedes' insights on the industry, but on this point, i must disagree. Sister, linking the idea of "Black Sisterhood" with "Black Lily" is a stretch. The tour involves black women, sisters, coming together to go on tour. Now, if a bunch of white women went on the "Black Sisterhood" tour, maybe I would share your suspicions (because what do white women have to do with 'black sisterhood"?), but these are black women. Surely you didn't think the concept of black women touring together would begin and end with the Lily, did you?

I do not think Erykah took your concept at all...sisterhood is something that should be encouraged in all of its forms.

As a proactive solution, I suggest you connect with Sister Erykah to co-promote between the Black Sisterhood tour and the Black Lily, perhaps with a Black Lily second stage. Or by having Black Lily regulars be opening acts.

Let's build together!

Thoughtfully yours,

Spirit

So what the name and lineup is the same? Fuck the bullshit any show that can put all those beautiful talented women together gets my vote. They should have a different show everyday of the year so I can see them everyday. I got enough money for the tickets too. What was I talking about again? Oh yeah fuck this post. Bullshit.
