"Attention all MC's, DJ's..."


          

Attention all MC's, DJ's and people who participate in hiphop culture - It has come to my attention that 3rd Rail is asking people to boycott my records after I dissed the hell out him at my show in Chicago. I also thoroughly explained why I dissed him. I even called 3rd Rail on his show and explained it again after I heard his homeboys were all trying to figure it out. I didn't leave room for misinterpretation. I said, if you don't talk about me, I won't talk about you. Simple, ... right? Now he's spreading lies about me and asking people to not play my shit. Once a bitch, ... right? Now I have to defend myself again. Before anyone starts taking sides, you need the facts.

Back in November, 3rd Rail wrote a letter on his website talking about Fuck Kweli, fuck Hi-Tek, ... Reflection Eternal is wack. Before you judge what I had to say in response to that letter, you should get a copy of it. I'm not really into the Internet like that, but I'm sure y'all can find it somewhere.

Here are the facts:

1) Me and Hi-Tek did 3rd Rail and V-Funk's show last year. They showed us mad love, we had fun, it was all good. I do hundreds of radio shows that I don't remember, but I remember this one.

2) I came back to Chicago as a surprise guest on the Lyricist lounge tour that Mos Def headlined. I wasn't even billed to be there and I performed for 15 minutes. Apparently, Rawkus called 3rd Rail that day and asked him if I could do the show that same night, but they didn't offer him tickets to the show (Lyricist Lounge). Even though he has a radio show Sunday nights and could not have gone anyway, he was personally offended that Rawkus overlooked his invitation. He didn't ask for a ticket, he was just upset that he didn't get one. In response, he decides to retaliate by saying I can't come on his radio show.

I was looking forward to coming on the show and knew nothing about his ticket woes, which really have nothing to do with me. To say I can't come on the show because of that is a bitch move, ... period. But whatever. So anyway, the day I come back into Chicago for the Okayplayer show, my Rawkus rep calls 3rd Rail at the last minute to set up an in-store at the store he worked at. Problem was, they forgot to tell me about it until the last minute. I had already done 2 in-stores that day, I was tired, and it was getting close to showtime. When I heard people were waiting though, I was on my way.

Then I hear that it was 3rd Rail's store. Not two months earlier 3rd Rail said I couldn't do his radio show because he didn't get tickets to a show I wasn't even on the bill for. I'm thinkin', "I'm about to go out of my way for his in-store? Fuck That!" I turned the car around, said fuck 3rd Rail, took a nap and rocked my show with the Roots, Slum Village, Bahamadia, dead prez, Flo, the Jazzys, Jag and all the real fans who don't bitch and moan about the humanity of their artists.

For all the fans who were at the in-store ... I'm sorry, but shit happens. Schedules conflict, people give out false info. If you take that kind of shit personal, that's your issue. I never agreed to do that in-store, Rawkus set that up. And if it's a choice between doing an in-store and getting enough rest so that I can rock properly, I gotta take care of myself. If I don't rock, ya'll don't buy the records, and there is no in-store.

Now, I definitely said fuck 3rd Rail to myself, but I would never cast a public judgment on somebody. If I think he's a dick, it's not my job to try to make you think that. Obviously, he sees shit differently. Without EVER having a conversation with me about it, he decided to get back at me by writing about me on his website. The same way he did about What What and BadSeed (brooklyn MCs) when they canceled a show in Chicago because Seed was sick. Him and V-Funk dissed my record, said they are not playing my shit, and wrote fuck Kweli, fuck Hi-Tek, all over this ticket and in-store business.

People said I should not have dissed 3rd Rail on stage, but it was only in response to him dissing me on his website. Which is more public? This letter from V-Funk and 3rd Rail, this public display of assumption, ignorance and hate, is why I dissed 3rd Rail. That was some sensitive little bitch shit. Nigga sounding like a crying little girl because he can't get tickets, so he takes it out on me? Hi Tek really don't have anything to do with this, but he said fuck Hi Tek too? Hi Tek has the right to smack the shit out of him. 3rd Rail made a conscious decision to put himself out there, so I called him on it. His boys is mad at me because they have a bitch in they crew. Who is he to say that I don't care about my fans because I didn't come to his in-store? Fuck 3rd Rail! What kind of man acts like that? A bitch ass nigga! After I read that shit, I found out he was mad at Bahamadia for not getting him tickets for our show. You see ya'll this is something he does. He feels like since he plays our records, that we should be more grateful and be getting him into shows. When I come to Chicago, I have mad names on my guestlist ... MY PEOPLES NAMES. I don't know 3rd Rail like that. Y'all see a pattern with this guy?

For those of you that like and respect 3rd Rail, I'm sorry, but I call 'em like I see 'em. He's a bitch, no ifs ands or butts. Who is he to assume why I didn't make that in-store? I don't make records for 3rd Rail, I make them for myself and I share them with the world. The hard reality is, as a DJ, you don't owe me shit. As an MC, I don't owe you shit. If you play my record, I appreciate it. You don't have to play it. Out of the thousands of DJ's, why does 3rd Rail think he is special? What's wrong with him? Fan, artists, MC, DJ, whatever, if I want to see a show, I buy a ticket and I go. I took what he said about me personal. I did not respond over the Internet, I came to his city and responded on stage in front of his people. Contrary to what you may have read, if you were there, you know I still rocked that motherfucker. Chicago was live as usual and they gave it up for the truth. That night, when he gave his half ass one sided version of the story on his radio show, and his boys were makin idle, laughable threats, I called his show and told him why I thought he was a bitch. He couldn't really respond because I was dealing with facts and he was dealing with assumptions and his own insecurities about his place in hip-hop. If you don't believe me, get a tape of his show from that night and listen to how I told him about himself for almost an hour on his own show. It's ridiculous that I'm still responding to this, because my reasons have been very clear. Just because you are on the Internet does no give you the right to cast judgments on people. He did that. I checked him. These are the facts, it has nothing to do with hip-hop, it has to do with respect. I never told anyone to not do his show, I never said don't buy his mix tapes. He had a communication problem with someone at Rawkus and decides to put fuck Kweli and Hi-Tek on the Internet? This is the second time he's tried to get folks to boycott my music. He is trying to take food out of my babies mouths. NOW we have beef! If y'all wanna boycott me because I ain't make the fucking in-store and because Rawkus neglected 3rd Rail when they made their guestlist for some show, go ahead. But that makes you more of a bitch than he is, and real men know that this is a business, not to be taken personally. Telling people that I don't care about my fans and telling them not to buy my shit makes you my enemy. Anybody who's met me and been to my shows knows that I love and respect this culture. This will be my last response until I see 3rd Rail. One love to the real. Death to the Fake.

Talib Kweli

P.S. Somebody would boycott his punk ass if it was worth it, but it's not. He's fucking himself up.

One would be IN agreement, not AT agreement. Don't jone on another's grammar when yours is suspect.

yeah.

we don't need any more folks resorting to bs over some deverging.

too many brothers get caught up in that whirlwind.

its time to weather all that yo.

niggas getting all chinky over nothing. and something as petty as an invitation??

wtf man.

what type of sense does that make, right?

I think kwa honestly put his mark in on all this hoopla concerning the two of them, and I hope that 3rd rail does the same and the both of them can put all this behind them and keep it moving.

this whole invitation/in-store/shit talking/public retaliation thing is something I hope no other dj rings on to.

for 3rd rail to expect so much really says a lot about his persona.

and from what I understand, its pretty ugly.

peace though sprit.

so called fans of talib and third rail didn't HAVE to go off on little known facts and spread the beef endlessly...
if you had been to the artist page...DJ3RDRAIL starting his posting frenzy on his website and on Okayplayer....and wouldn't let it die...talib showed more poise by just ending this shit simply. If you read the posts...surprisingly, 'fans' weren't really perpetuating much.

Much love,

man...who is talib ending it simply, calling him a bitch or whatever??? mik is right, hes basically stooping to his level.. he could have explained his shit and ended it. and unless 3rd rail is posting under about 10 different okp names...other people (presumably fans) are perpetuating i with posts, and talib fans are pushing them up with support.

i mean, dude was acting like a bitch,true, but as we all have learned, pests go away when you usually ignore them. talib knows hes in the right....so does 3rd rail and he obviously isnt going to change his mind, so if he feels like he does, hes going to keep on doing what hes doing until people stop listening and following.

and calling hima bitch isnt going to speed that up any.

246. "Let Shit Die"
In response to Reply # 11


          

It's kinda hard to let shit die when the two parties involved make it a public issue. I live in Chicago, but I'm not taking sides on the story. I didn't even know about the situation until I was at the Metro and Talib Kweli decided to make it a public issue by addressing it the way he did in front of all the people who were in there, many of who were just as surprised as I was.

Talib could have kept it to himself until he talked to 3rd Rail, but NOOOOOO, he had to call dude out and call him a bitch ass motherfucker, bitch ass nigga, bitch this, bitch that, talking about if he wants to take it somewhere, Talib is ready to go there with him.

Now, I am a huge fan of Talib Kweli. I don't know 3rd Rail, and if he walked past me on the street, I wouldn't even notice. But, the fact is, I didn't know about the situation until our favorite so called "conscious" rapper gets up on stage and starts sounding like your average thug-mafioso type. It was a very ugly side of Talib. And anybody who wasn't there really can't comment on it.

I can't comment on what 3rd Rail did, because I didn't witness it. What I witnessed was one of mny favorite rappers showing a side of himself that kinda went against everything I thought he represented. A side that was never reflected in any song that I heard or any interview that I've ever read. And anybody who wasn't there really can't comment on it.

Otherwise, it was a decent show that I enjoyed, but somehow there is still a sour taste in my mouth from the whole thing.

I don't know anything about 3rd Rail or even who he is, and i don't shitlist folk i know nothing about, but sounds like he's making some bitch moves... I sure as hell ain't boycotting good shit cuz of beef regardless of who did what.

if his call for a boycott is having any effect, it's to let more people know who Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek are.

Um... 3rd Rail is not exactly Eminem. If you've heard of DJ 3rd Rail, you've heard of Talib Kweli. Kweli isn't getting any mainstream publicity cuz of this.

BWWWAAHAHAHHAHAHHWWWAAHAHAHAHAH.....dont nobody owe you shit bro.....Im a college DJ too....and a pretty well respected one too to be honest......but Ive paid my dues and shit still happens that is out of my control.....so quit crying and retire or something.....and I read your little message board on your website and if you think your hot because you have a little groupie following....just remember that from the looks of their replies, I think they are all sharing about 5 brain cells......

Yeah ok with that dj name you must play somme gay ass shit (DJFLYGEAR what the fuck is that)

anyway

Talib showed his true colors that night at the Metro( where more than 80 % of the krowd was there to see ms.Badu not talib {Yuppies}) I guess that's what u get from Mr. Conscious Hip-Hop.
What's this about takin food from yer babies mouths? pleez man you fuckin swear I mean you got yer fuckin tours here and international so you ain't gotta worry that is unless Rawkus like every other major label (yeah that's right rawkus ain't been undergroun for a minute ya know) and takin all yer money and givin you 10 cents a cd and 5 cents a tape. I hope yer consciouys ass didn't get dicked like that , I can see that rawkus does fuck people over in the way they handle the whole communication of this situation.

Personally I think that as far as the instore goes you should have went regardless of 3rd rail werkin there shit it ain't his store . You were talkin bout you did 2 other instores and you were tired and needed a nap man I've done show with the flu and I 'm the fuckin dj having to rock the party for 4 to 5 hours man shit an instore ain't shit but chillin . All you had to do was be the BIGGER MAN about this and do YOUR FANS the honor of signin some shit and lettin them meet you shit grab a fuckin red bull if yer so tired but that wasn't it it was just cuz of some little beef you and 3rd had and that ain't CONSCIOUS at all.

Anyway if you actually make some good music in the future I might consider buyin it and if your wak ass label actually puts out something descent for a change I might consider buyin that too.

I would really recommed that you avoid going back to Chicago anytime soon -- you may find out what a bitch really is, since you won't squash it.

Talib didn't go b/c he was tired AND it was 3rd Rail's place of employment. Why overextend himself to do a favor for someone who disses him?

Seems like 3rd rail is just trying to get some notoriety here. Urging me to boycott b/c of your personal beef, nigro please.

having read 3rd rail's posts--he seems to be saying "it's no big deal..." on one hand, but then brings up the idea of a boycotts and says that people can join in, but they don't have to--but if they don't, that they're not down with him...wtf is that?

and that's not just vouching for Kweli, that's genuine befuddlement on a cat who probably knows that this beef could put him in the spotlight more than it does for Talib.

After reading this post and about 1/2 of the replies, I think Mosaic makes the best point. This muthafucka is trying to show Kweli how big his dick is and that shit is straight gay.

Boycott, WTF????

Boycott Cash Money Records & No Limit for consistently putting out brainless bullshit that goes nowhere like pork in ya intestines!!!

REAL Hip-Hop (RE:, Roots, etc. shit, you fill it in!) has a hard enough time surviving with the few DJ's across this country that play, support and promote it. Furthermore, if this cat (3rd Link, Rail whatever)is as heavy as niggas say he is (and in Chi-Town no less), he should KNOW that shit was business and not personal.

Being that I worked at a record store before, I know a little about how this game works. The artists themselves are usually not in control of when schedules are made, they get very little notice of events that they are to show up at and if they happen to get advance notice, nobody takes into account how many of those events were scheduled for that day or if they're tired or anything.

Even after Kweli goes on the cat's show to rap to him man-to man about the shit and clear it up, he still pulled bitch rank. Above all, that's the most fucked up thing right there.

All in all people, look at 3rd Rail and look at Kweli (& Hi-Tek):
These cats is doing what they love to do, they're hella good at it, and here this 3rd wheel nigga is trying to fuck up their program because he couldn't get a hookup. If I was where homeboy was and I couldn't get the hookup, I would've bought tickets and further more contacted Kweli (or tried) while he was in town to find out the deal.

Plain & simple, there was a better way to handle all phases of this shit and 3rd track took the low road.

He should change his to name to DJ Stan. It's eating him up that him & Kweli can't be together

That's my 2cents.

Don't everybody like the smell of gasoline?

In response to Reply # 68


          

Y'all can't have it both ways...

either an artists is responsible for his words & deeds or he isn't.

what's up with the double standards? Kweli can take control of his schedule, just like he can makes decisions on what type of music he chooses to make.

don't care about this beef, but the way people react & make excuses depending on who's being judged is amazing.

I learned what a homonym was in third grade. The antonym of homonym is antonym.

Maybe you need to be wary before you start calling out my grammar corrections!!!

I do have an English Degree, therefore, I could be considered an expert on the matter.....Here are the two options we have for words like here/hear and there/their....Have a nice day!

hom·o·nym
n. One of two or more words that have the same sound and often the same spelling but differ in meaning.

hom·o·phone
n. One of two or more words, such as night and knight, that are pronounced the same but differ in meaning, origin, and sometimes spelling.

The antonym of homonym is antonym.

You're wrong!!!

The antonym of synonym is antonym!!!!

antonym: a word of opposite meaning

synonym: one of two or more words or expressions of the same language that have the same or nearly the same meaning in some or all senses

bottom line is that this is only doing what 3rd rail wanted it to do, it's getting him notoriety... i'd never heard of him and now i have. never been to his site, now i have....

duke seems like a straight up bitch to me yo! After reading his comments at his board, he goes out of his way and airs beef about some petty bs and then asks for said beef to be squashed? (http://pub19.ezboard.com/fdj3rdrailgeneraldiscussion.showMessage?topicID=688.topic) Crying cuz heads didn't jump to his defense and shit! What a fucking pussy!! Why is he bringing Chicago into it? WHAT!? He's the fucking king of Chi town or something? LOL If you got beef, you got beef, stop being a bitch by playing yourself by asking your "fans" to join in your silly lil bitch fest! "OHHH, he dissed our city, no more records bought by me! Y'all wit me...right??" He dissied YOU, not Chicago. Maybe if you had been man enough to reach out to him, one on one and not via the web or radio, shit would be squashed by now...YA HERB!

38. "3rd Rail's Ego"
In response to Reply # 0


          

First things first, I love the music Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek create. Simply beautiful.

3rd Rail used to be one of my favorite DJ's, but not because of what transpired with him and Talib. Here is why. I go to the University of Illinois at Chicago and live in the dorms. I have been able to catch 3rd Rail's shows on WCRX since '97 (pre-Internet transmission days), since the radio station he is on is down the street from my school. You can only reach the show if you are in the vicinity or driving around in your car. I've tried both. He used to play the dopeness and hip me to some new stuff. I would listen every Thursday while finishing my Accounting homework that would last the whole show. But now he talks for like half the 3 hour show and plays the same material everyweek. He alsways brags about the show being live, which is cool and often disses WGCI. He mixes pretty well, the blends are on. When he tries to do tricks, it is a different story. The man can't juggle. I respect that he tries, but dude needs practice, AT HOME. God forbid someone say that he isn't good at it, then he might erupt and spend the whole show dissing the caller for his constructive criticism. 3rd Rail's ego has gotten way to big. He always brags how he got back from Tokyo, New York, Canada or somewhere else collecting records for his mixtpaes. I congratulate the fact he has put out 35 editions of the "Subway Hip Hop" mixtape, but who cares. Quit bragging like the crap is groundbreaking, I've heard better blends and play selection. Always bragging about being in the subway tunnels the past weekend. Grow up man. Aren't graffiti artists supposed to remain unknown? That's the mystery and appreciation for the art. Everytime I see a piece, I'm like, "That's dope, who did that?" You never want to know, you just admire the artwork. 3rd Rail is always commenting how he ducked the transit police. Calm down, dude. It's not that serious. Just play the records!

I used to go to his functions. I remember he had one back in like '97 when he had Defari. It was in the basement of the IIT campus. Defari wrecked it. He put me on to Defari, but he acts like he is responsible for Defari blowing up or something, always reflecting on that accomplishment. Fact of the matter, I would have heard of Defari if 3rd rail never played him. He had a video on BET for God sakes. I just would never have heard of him the Year before his video came out. I stay connected and probably would have heard some of Defari's stuff on the internet somewhere.

My point being that 3rd Rail has lost touch with reality, just a bit. Homie needs a reality check like finally graduating from Columbia College instead of paying for semesters just to have a radio show (WCRX). Cache 22 is better than him and his show got moved form the time slot before 3rd Rail's. Cache 22 should have gotten his spot.

No disrespect...

you're being upset, and I think it was mature, and good of you to set the record straight...you really didn't have to but you did, and that's greatly appreciated....now, I have no idea who 3rd rail is, I never heard about any of the stuff you've mentioned here, but I'm sure for the people that do have insight, this post gives them a great deal of clarification...but....you put the brother on blast, and that wasn't necessary...you've stooped to his level, and now the cycle will continue another round...now that you've put your piece out there, hopefully you'll be able to look past whatever else he may have to say, and live for you...like you said, the two of you don't owe eachother anything, and I'm sure that when he didn't get into the rawkus show, he was upset, and being spiteful to you was his way satisfying his own needs....and you're not doing the instore not only allowed you to get more rest, but in a way it allowed you to get back at him for his prior selfishness...whatever...you're a man, so just let it go...hopefully he will too...

Good of you to explain all this. It's important of you to let your version known. Unfortunately, people will blindly follow 3rd Rail as it seems like he's influential in Chicago. In the meanwhile, make sure you keep doing your thing, in Chicago and elsewhere, and sales will continue.

True heads will judge you by your talent, not by some hear-say. Your talent is evident, continue to spread yourself and your work, and all will fall into place.

In the meanwhile, let not your heart be troubled.

Talib is down. Whatever happened there happened, but that was cool he came on and took the time to write that, on tour, and say whats up with a random ass dj. Chicago isnt the world, and 3rd Rail isnt Chicago. Fuck it. Too bad Kweli had to waste time and energy with this, but hey, I guess it just helps you see where all things stand. Now we all know theres some bi-otch in Chicago trying to get free publicity out of HECKLING the real deal. Lame. Short cuts dont work. Keep it real Kweli, and keep spreading peace.

62. "RE: Attention all MC's, DJ's..."
In response to Reply # 0


          

Let me say this first, so that y'all don't jump all over me. I think the beef if definitely two-sided. It is needless and could be easily squashed. And overall, I can't believe that y'all would take such a one-sided stance on the beef.

Some misconceptions:

1. First of all, almost all of y'all, except for cisceOne, know nothing about the man. As a DJ, he is very talented and influential. You guys wouldn't know that though because he isn't from NY or on DFX. He has independently released 36 mix-tapes. His blends are perfect. I have seen the man blend 2 jazz records, 2 house records, 2 whatever with ease.
Secondly, i doubt any of y'all know him on a personal level. While I think he would even admit some stubbornness, 3rd is as nice a guy as you'll meet and pales in comparison to many of the primadonnas who have DJed 10+ years. Being new and young in the Chicago scene, 3rd has shown me love and has been always willing to help. He always reciprocates the actions given to him. Love is love.

2. You don't see any hipocrisy in the arguments? Because 3rd calls out Kweli on a message board that 15 people post on, Kweli is justified to call him out in front of 900 people at the Metro?

3. How many of y'all have heard the phone conversation between Kweli and 3rd on his show? This was a full-fledged tirade. 3rd put on Talib with the full intention of squashing beef. 3rd Rail could not get 10 words into the conversation. If Kweli really wanted to squash, 3rd was willing to admit some wrongdoing, if he was given the small opportunity.

4. To the cat who commented on 3rd grammar and writing in comparison to 3rd, that is just some ignorant bullshit. That really has nothing at all to do with intelligence. As many extremely intelligent people are illiterate due to language barriers, etc.

5. People who mention Kweli's talent are absoulutely right. The man is talented. I was always a fan of his older material. Still, practice what you preach. I remember you saying on stage, "I'd like to see 3rd Rail come down here and say that", or some thing to that effect. Then what? So y'all can have a fist fight? That's gonna do alot of good. Why not squash it? Obviously, this beef isn't gonna hurt Kweli that much. He is gonna sell tons of units as long as his music stays on point. There is something to be said, though, about someone who preaches positivity and pacifism and then unleashes a 20 minutes tirade on the phone over a fairly small beef.

I know this looks like a one-sided argument. I do this only because the rest of the board seems to be holding up the other side pretty well. I can't believe how readily most of the posters here believe that this beef is 100% in one direction. Life is filled with shades of gray. I would recommend that alot of y'all brush up on some facts before you take your hero's word as truth.

If Kweli told y'all that he had beef with Common or D'Angelo or Questlove, would you take his word 100% or listen to their argument too.

this is kinda irrelevant to the matter at hand, though. talent has nothing to with beef--MC Hammer had plenty of beef.

also, irrelevant to a point.

i can see what you were saying..but if he were willing to admit wrong doing, wouldn't he have done it prior to that--or even now?...regardless, if someone treats you like a dick, if there's wrongdoing onyour side, you should admit it.

>As many extremely intelligent people
>are illiterate due to language
>barriers, etc.

damn 3rd Rail--he called you illiterate. i wouldn't take that if i were you--boycott that fool!

>Why not squash it? Obviously,

couldn't 3rd Rail squash it just as easily?

89. "Squash it?"
In response to Reply # 63


          

3rd Rail tried to squash it by reaching out to Rawkus on their site, but nothing. Before that he even put Talib on the air to settle all this bullshit, but Talib used 20min of airtime to cuss and diss without trying to squash it. Now that Talib is like bitch this and bitch that...I dunno.

None of this shit was public until the stage inicident, then it blew up. Talib's management HAS 3rd Rail's phone number, because they called him to do the instore.

Looks like Rawkus and Talib don't want this to end on a positive note?

where's my car?

your logic only works in computer animated cartoons and the like.

>3rd Rail tried to squash it
>by reaching out to Rawkus
>on their site, but nothing.

what? why would you go to the Rawkus website to contact an artist? the cats popping timecards for html and the like aren't gonna get a hold of him...another point coming up, though.

>Before that he even
>put Talib on the air

>without trying to squash it.

i don't think Talib is absolved from anything, but part of the problem seems to be that 3rd Rail assumed that Talib was gonna take shit sitting down just 'cause he's not talking obsessively about gunplay--it reminds me of when apparently cats tried to punk De La just 'cause they weren't 'gangsta'...

> Now that Talib is
>like bitch this and bitch
>that...I dunno.
>None of this shit was public
>until the stage inicident, then
>it blew up. Talib's
>management HAS 3rd Rail's phone
>number, because they called him
>to do the instore.

then doesn't 3rd Rail have Talib's management's number, too? or if not, if 3rd Rail is big willied enough to try to pull a Chi-town boycott, can't he figure out a way to contact Talib?

>Looks like Rawkus and Talib don't
>want this to end on
>a positive note?

well, whatever the case is it mostly seemed to stem from 3rd Rail's disappointment over not getting a ticket to a show...he may claim that it's the principle of the thing, and that it needed to be done to show appreciation...but c'mon now.

on the other side of things, the on-stage diss seems like an extreme or at least unneeded element--i think most cats would've just ignored shit and for some reason, Talib felt that he needed to speak on it...

True, this has got to stop!

"Some misconceptions:
1.As a DJ, he is very talented and influential. You guys wouldn't know that though because he isn't from NY or on DFX."
What does being fromNY have to do with anything? Maybe U need 2 look @ profiles, a bunch of non NY heads have posted to this thread as well!

"He has independently released 36 mix-tapes. His blends are perfect. I have seen the man blend 2 jazz records, 2 house records, 2 whatever with ease."
From what little I've heard thus far, duke's ok, but his blending is not perfect IMO and he talks too much for a non-commercial dj.

"Secondly, i doubt any of y'all know him on a personal level.
While I think he would even admit some stubbornness,"
Some?? He's the one constantly posting this "more than a week after the fact" (his words)makes it look like he's trying to garner as much attention to himself as possible.

"Being new and young in the Chicago scene, 3rd has shown me love
and has been always willing to help. He always reciprocates the actions given to him."
It appears that you're letting your "friendship(?) get in the way of your judgement?! You have to admit that he is a little jaded by a perceived diss?

2. You don't see any hipocrisy in the arguments?"
Yeah, on both sides!!

"Because 3rd calls out Kweli on a message board that 15 people
post on, Kweli is justified to call him out in front of 900 people at the Metro?"
Hey, you man enough to air your beef on the net (that has the potential to reach "thousands" {his words again} of people)you should be man enough to deal with the consequences! He could have easily contacted Talib/his manager and settled this "beef" yo!

"3. How many of y'all have heard the phone conversation between
Kweli and 3rd on his show? This was a full-fledged tirade. 3rd put on Talib with the full intention of squashing beef. 3rd Rail could not get 10 words into the conversation. If Kweli really wanted to squash, 3rd was willing to admit some wrongdoing, if he was given the small opportunity."
The phone thing was after the fact! You can't really expect TK to be cordial after he felt that he was being shitted on! Like I said before, he could of handled things better on his end (just as much as TK could have too!)

"4. To the cat who commented on 3rd grammar and writing in comparison to 3rd, that is just some ignorant bullshit. That really has nothing at all to do with intelligence. As many extremely intelligent people are illiterate due to language
barriers, etc."
Word!

"5. People who mention Kweli's talent are absoulutely right. The man is talented. I was always a fan of his older material. Still, practice what you preach. I remember you saying on stage, "I'd like to see 3rd Rail come down here and say that", or some thing to that effect. Then what? So y'all can have a fist fight? That's gonna do alot of good."
Just because an individual is talented doesn't make him some kind of superior being! He has feelings just like any one else and is likely to let emotions take over.

"Why not squash it? Obviously, this beef isn't gonna hurt Kweli that much. He is gonna sell tons of units as long as his music stays on point. There is something to be said, though, about someone who preaches positivity and pacifism and then unleashes
a 20 minutes tirade on the phone over a fairly small beef."
Why not ask 3rd why didn't he make a genuine attempt to squash the beef instead of going on the air/online? He ebenifits from all the publicity. Another thing, he brought the whole "TK's dissing Chicago" into this un-called for "beef" IMO!

"I would recommend that alot of y'all brush up on some facts
before you take your hero's word as truth."
People with glass houses...It seems like you should take your own advice! How many heads were talking about boycotting TK based on what he was supposed to have done?

"If Kweli told y'all that he had beef with Common or D'Angelo or Questlove, would you take his word 100% or listen to their argument too."
I can only speak for myself: I waited for TK's response and made an opinion based of what's presented before me. 3rd seems a little big headed cuz of some diss. He needs to get over it and keep doing what's made him a well known person. I also feel that your relationship with 3rd has clouded your judgement somewhat. Would you be defending him if he hadn't shown you love?

I'd love for this thing to be over, but 3rd posting this shit over and over on his site ain't helping matters not one lil bit!

In response to Reply # 67


  

          

do you really think 3rd Rail benefits from _this kind_ of publicity? judging from this board, a lot of people who never knew him before now have animosity towards the guy. I can't see how he's gaining anything from this. and i seriously doubt he sat at home and said "How can I get fame? I know, I'll get into a beef with a guy who is pretty much universally known as a peaceful cat, who isn't really super popular, and then I'll ride that into fame and fortune." Huh?

That shits risiculous, dude. This is hip hop and cats get called out when they do fukked up ish...case closed. How can you say Kweli is being hypocritical by callin him out on stage? Kwelei is a battle emcee!!! that's what emcees do!!! DAMN! Cats need to qtop with that "he's supposed to be positive" babble. In the hip hop I grew up on "sometimes you gotta be disrespected an thrown out the exit to get the message" as kweli said. Get the fukk over it.

Just like when KRS-One threw the fat guy from PM Dawn off of a stage. Yeah KRS was/is all about "Stop the Violence" and what not, but this is still Hip Hop. If you disrespect someone, you get delt with. And I'm not by any means saying this situation should resort to violence, but 3rd dissed Talib and Talib brought the beef right back to him.

First off... I'm from The "D" and I don't know who 3rd Rail really is. But he must be important in Chi. Why would he do something like that? Shit, I'm mad cause my ass bought tickets and still couldn't go. ( I was sick ) ::shakin my head:: Nigga's just don't know how good they got it.

Talib it's to late to boycott you I already copped it! Don't let them upset you!

Peace,

thats crazy dumb!
im not from chi and i have no idea who 3rd rail is and dont care i never met him but from your version of the story he is a bitch.
I have met and spoke to you at a show you are very genuine in your appraoch to your fan base. As far as dude not gettin tickets to a show i wonder was it a problem to by a fuckin ticket? could he not afford it?
Reflection Eternal have a great album and i dont think a 3rd rail character is gonna affect that. also that takin food from the babies mouths is grounds for beat down!
Talib don't fret "who god bless let no man curse!

Nuwb or "blackness" is supreme balance before the chaos was introduced. It was a state of sound, right reasoning. That darkness was triple darkness, which is what you would call the absence of consciousness, or the state of being awoke. In actuality, the dream state is more real and peaceful than the chaos you meet once you are awake. A form of spiritual darkness responsible for the spark that turned on the light that is the life and intellect of all who breathe and think.
When the light is turned on again, the chaos begins. The differentiation begins. The separation begins. The rights and the wrongs, the goodness and the badness; the supreme balance is broken and the ego begins to verse the "I."

Tickets? My view is the respect of saying, hey...thanks for letting ME do the interview on YOUR show..thanks for playing MY records in YOUR city..thanks for YOUR support in getting ME fans..thanks for YOUR efforts in setting up and instore promotion for ME...here are some tickets/t-shirts/cd's (or whatever) to do what you want to with. Does this mean 3rd would use this stuff himself or give them to friends..don't know. It's his show, he puts in the work so he could wipe his ass with them..who cares.

But my point is..where is the reciprication(sp?)?? In my years I have learned that you don't get something for nothing...college DJ's MAKE these underground artists popular by playing their songs. The issue is NOT the tickets per se', but the principle.

yeah but why thorw a tantrum and slander an artist cuz you aint get a ticket to one show? or he didnt make an appearance after you publicly said "fuck him"?
I'm tellin you i unnastand that i was at the instores with common in philly and it is hard and tiring and we was late to a few of them and through alla dat you hungry and tired and then you find out you gotta go to some bwoys store who said "fuck you" you think the effort level to get there is not going to be in question?
and as far as the fans go if they took it personal then they need to stop the idol worship mother fuggin artist eat sleep shit just like us and just cuz you like them and support them dont mean they have an obligation to you as an individual.
so if folks are hurt from waiting at the store need to unnastan why also.
As i said i spoke from my own experience with artist from this site and else where and i have never ran into an asshole artist they meet and greet there fans Talib meets and greet his fans and will smile laff and joke too but 3rd rail aint GOD over Talib and Hi teks career and if he dont play they shit so be it hell they dont play Talib on the radio in philly but mad people got the CD so it is a means of getting sales bsides on fuggin DJ in Chi.
And all these Chi town cats talkin bout 3rd rail like he they fuggin brother or cousin he wasnt takin none of them to the damn show with him.

i see your point mad. and payolla does make the world go round. (trust me....you thought that "you got me" was just a sign of fan affection? nope. appreciation dollars went into that bitch, right there.

but the point you are making is similar to saying that if i date a jawn and she's wearing some braxton grammy shit, then i --as escort-- have a right to violate her cause "she was throwin me rhythm".....well lemme try another way...

sure there are alot of goodies and perks for me in this business. moneywise, opportunity wise, socialwise...but i do what i do for the love of it. i post here 24-7 cause i love it. and i don't expect nothing in return. and when u get to the point where you start expecting things....this is where you get bitter.

and this seems to be the problem. i'm sure 3rd rail has love (so i hope) for the roots. but i have no emotional connection to him. i'm not from the crib, so i wouldn't necessasrily feel the need to go over the top. unless it's a planned event. then of course i would cooperate. but i feel rail is coming from the stance of how fans approach celebs.....(not saying he's a fan) but sometimes people feel an emotional connection and get dissapointed when the celeb dosn't make it a mutual thing. i felt that way when i saw stevie wonder some time back. here is a man who "raised" me and when meeting him. it was anit climatic. he didn't know me from a can of paint. i could say "hey steve. talk to me!!! lemme drum for you, i've supported you since 1972!!!!!!"

steve don't know me.


now in case rail reads this and gets mad cause he thinks i called him a "fan". i didn't. i just used the best example of human letdown i know. of course someone has to be the bigger man and say "my bad". clearly there was a misunderstanding. but mad....my point was that i feel as though if rail is a true artist. he will dj the dope shit, and not feel the need for any type of reward for his countinued support.

i drum for the love first.
all else second.

Now that's the real. Cats that dont play joints because they didnt get enough percs (or money) to do it are not true to real hip hop. When we release material here in Cleveland, there are always cats that act like they are the gatekeeper to fame because they a radio show and unless I cater what tehy want (attention, loot, hella promo mat.) they dont play my shit. That's fouler than fried swine right there. Damn, the is industry WILL make you lose intensity.

120. "Doesn't he get paid to do his job????"
In response to Reply # 93


          

Why does he need extras for doing his job? Just because I introduce people I interact with to Talib Kweli (some becoming fans, some not), does that mean Kwa owes me free tickets or a fucking t-shirt? Get the fuck outta here. I listen to Kweli b/c I love the music and if it were possible for me to introduce him to a larger audience than I am able to as a simple consumer I would for no cost but to let others join in my appreciation. I wouldn't do it for some fucking comps.

3rd Rail gets paid to do his job. Kweli's tracks help make 3rd Rail's show more popular, thus making him more money. Kweli appears on his show and pushes his own album making, not only 3rd Rail, but himself some extra cash. Seems like an even trade off. So, where does this logically lead to the necessity of free tickets, cds, posters, etc???? What does Kwa get in return? Some dude who kisses his ass?

not sure what HE meant, but no 3rd rail doesn't get paid to host his show. he rocks college radio for virtually no pay. the up side is that he can play whatever he wants on his show--usually uncensored. the downside -he gets overlooked when comes time to pass out perks and props (from the industry--- he'll get a pound from me anyday of the week).

fuck it.

the both of them are starting to sound like hoes. The shit was obviously a misunderstanding on both sides. Had, @ any juncture, either of em made it a priority to get in contact w/ the other, and they sat down and talked out their BUSINESS like BUSINESS men, there would be NO issue. All this public airing of shit plays like someone trying to get the masses on their side, like those two kids snapping on each other on the school bus, and whoever gets the most laughs wins. Granted this is prolly gonna boost sales, for the both of em, and I personally would love to be @ the next Chitown Talib show, just to see whats really going on. but Talib is a national artist, who gives 2 fucks what some regional kingpin has to say...andif you REALLY wanna hit him where it hurts, go back to Chi, get some underground cats and make a strictly Chicago dis record, start some old Windy City civil war shit,blue against grey type madness. ok, maybe thats a little far, but the poiint is made....

Seriously, leave it alone. Do it for Hip-Hop, not for your own egos. Oh yeah, I am from Chicago, born and raised. Umm, who is 3rd Rail? Somebody tell me please! South Side or West Side?

That reminds me of the time that Slow Stevie got mad at me because he didn't get invited to my birthday party. His mommy had told my mommy that they were going to the orthopedic shoe store in the next town over so they couldn't come. Slow Stevie got mad at me because he didn't understand that he couldn't come anyways because his old shoes were getting all ratty, that's probably why we call him Slow Stevie. The next time I went to the playground, all the other kids didn't want to play with me because Stevie told them I had cooties. Some were brave enough to come close and give me a wedgie and a charley horse. Stevie got in trouble with his mommy after she found out and he wasn't allowed to watch my little pony for a month after that.

He moved away the next summer and I haven't seen him since.

I love hiphop, but why all this over a damn ticket?

Talib gives more than 100 percent at a show, but I don't know who the hell 3rd rail is, and now, I really don't care. You don't tell fans what to buy, just like we don't tell the dj's and mc's what to play and say.

Talib should not have to come on the net to defend himself.

If your loosing money behind of this shit, go get Londell.

Peace,
Mal

Freedom of jail, clips inserted
A baby is being born the same time my man is murdered
The beginning and end
As far as rap go, it’s only natural, I explain my plateau
And also what defines my name
First it was nasty, but times have changed
Ask me now, I’m the artist, but hardcore, my sign’s for pain
I spent time in the game, kept my mind on fame
Saw fiends shoot up and do lines of cocaine
Saw my close friends shot, flat-linin’ my same
Got the pen, carry mac-10’s to practice my aim
On rooftops, tape CD covers to trees
Line the barrel up with your weed, pinch it and squeeze
Street scriptures for lost souls in the crossroads
To the corners thugs hustlin’ for cars that cost dough
To the big dogs livin’ large, takin’ it light
Pushin’ big toys, gettin’ nice, enjoyin’ your life
It’s what you make it, suicide, few try to take it
Belt tied around they neck in jail cells naked
Heaven and hell, rap legend, presence is felt
And of course N-A-S are the letters that spell...

As we all know, beef's have become a part of Hip Hop. And many of them can be boiled down to the specifics we have been given by Kweli.

The problem I have with this, aand maybe I'm seeing this through personal glasses, but beef or nor beef, a male's ego has been hurt, and this can spell trouble. The trouble in which I speak has to do with one male who takes this shit a little personal and the other who understands that this is menial and should be squashed. We've all seen it.

I just hope that the other party in this Hip Hoo psuedo drama decides to let bygones be bygones and say "fuck it", Im'ma take my cheap ass down to the box office and buy a ticket to the next Reflection Eternal show, and dammit Im'ma have me a good time"

The brutal truth is that the bulk of white people in America never had any interest in educating black people, except as this could serve white purposes. It is not the black child's language that is in question, it is not his language that is despised: It is his experience. A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled. A child cannot be taught by anyone whose demand, essentially, is that the child repudiate his experience, and all that gives him sustenance, and enter a limbo in which he will no longer be black, and in which he knows that he can never become white. Black people have lost too black children that way. (James Baldwin)

Honor the Iris's in your life!

In response to Reply # 0


          

i don't know the beef. i don't care to know the beef. f-it! either way, i don't profit and no food it put on my table. but, i can & will say this...

when an artist comes to a city, there is only so much he or she can do with the allotted time they are allowed in each city. if one should ever stop by your show, it is a blessing. now, if you don't get hit off with free tickets, that's on your game. you don't think for a second that funkmaster flex, sway, mr choc, colby colb, red alert don't get hit with tickets? they do, and they get hit with TONS cuz of their credibility. if you don't get hit off lovely, that means you ain't major enough for them to recognize. now, having done said that, i'mma support kweli to the fullest, cuz his music is GOOD. fuck the bullshit. he can be a clansman for all i care, if he is reaching me by his words, i'mma not only listen but support on EVERY outlet i got. so, if you want free t-shirts, tickets, cds, vinyl, then step up your game and become major. besides, a real fan support outta his or her OWN pocket. don't freeload, cuz you spin and run your fake charts. i got rawkus plaques on LOVE! not cuz love is love!

165. "Where's The Beef?"
In response to Reply # 149


          

Hello Kids-
Okay straight away,3rd rail, you betta shoulda known better than to name yourself after A.) A west coast clothing line that hasn't been dope since 93,B.) A cliched graffiti term. And another thing, if you're going to post messages you gotta cop a spell check program, your grammar and spelling skills are broke. There's lots of college radio DJ's out there, you think that Kweli owes you some tickets, he don't owe you...You had him on your show and it was love right, you had him on your show because you respected him as an artist and liked his music right?
That's it, end of story, not one artist in the game owes you. You didn't put him on! You simply played his records, I'm sure he thanked you, and that's it. Now to bitch about him and boycott his record(as if it'll make any difference)because he missed you on some tickets, now that's some retarded s--t. You sound like a little kid yo. That dude is touring the world, maiking records, supporting a family, i'm sure DJ 3rd Rail is not his first priority, even when he's in Chicago. You should quit while you're ahead yo...And since this isn't all one-sided...I love Kweli's music, I think he's put out a great record, and "Manifesto" is one of my favorite songs!...However, I believe that he should've just gassed about the situation and not even brought it up period. Right now he's only bringing negative attention to himself, and more attention to DJ 3rd Grade, err... I mean Rail than he could have ever imagined.Ghost!

In response to Reply # 0


          

*Stamping name*

clocking out

"It's terrible sometimes, inside, that's what's the trouble. You walk these streets, black and funky and cold, and there's not really a living ass to talk to, and there's nothing shaking, and there's no way of getting it out-that storm inside. You can't talk it and you can't make love with it, and when you finally try to get with it and play it, you realize nobody's listening. So you've got to listen. You got to find a way to listen."- James Baldwin "Sonny's Blues"

151. "THE TRUTH"
In response to Reply # 0


          

OKAY SINCE I SEE NEITHER TALIB OR RAWKUS WANTS TO SQUASHS THIS I HAVE TO LET THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG.

FIRST OF ALL THIS IS NOT ABOUT FAME OR TRYING TO GET EXPOSURE. THIS MESSAGE AND POST WILL BE POSTED ON ALL THE MESSAGE BOARDS AND FORWARDED TO THE LABELS. SO THAT THEY TOO CAN READ WHAT REALLY WENT DOWN.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY SINCE IF YOU READ THE OTHER POST, PEOPLE ARE NOT DOING THAT PROPERLY.

OK WE ALL KNOW TALIB CAME DOWN TO DO AND INTERVIEW AND IT WAS ALL LOVE. THE SECOND TIME THEY CAME I GOT A CALL LAST MINUTE ABOUT THEM WANTING TO COME DOWN TO DO AN INTEVIEW. I SAID "HELL NO" NO TICKETS NO INTERVIEW. YOU PEOPLE ACT LIKE I WAS TRYING TO GET ON HIS ALBUM OR SOMETHING. IT'S CALLED COMMON CURTISY PERIOD. NO LOVE MEANS NO LOVE. I DON'T CARE WHO IT IS. TAKE IT HOW YOU WANT IT. THINGS HAVE GOT TO CHANGE FOR COLLEGE DJ'S EVERYWERE. LETS MAKE THAT THE FINAL CONCLUSION WHEN ALL IS SAID AND DONE. SO AFTER ARGUING WITH HIS MANGER OVER THE PHONE, WHICH IS NOT HOW YOU TALK TO PEOPLE. WE AGREED TO SQUASH IT AND NEXT TIME THERE IN TOWN IT WAS ALL GOOD. OK I THOUGHT

NEXT TIME IN TOWN (NOW HERE'S WERE PEOPLE GET EVERYTHING TWISTED) THEY ASKED ME (THE LABEL), TO DO AN INSTORE. I WAS AT THE CMJ IN NEW YORK SO I AGREED. HAD THE PRODUCT OVER NIGHTED AND POSTED IT ON MY WEB SITE. "OK IF I HAD BEEF WHY DID I AGREE TO DO THE INSTORE?" COME ON, IT BAFFLES ME THAT PEOPLE MISS READ ALL THE POST. OK A HOUR AND A HALF PAST AND I GET A CALL FROM THE STREET TEAM THAT HE WAS TO TIRED TO COME TO THE INSTORE. SO I TOLD THE FANS , AT THE STORE AND THEY RETURNED ALL THE PRODUCT THEY HAD BROUGHT. RIGHT THERE I TOOK IT PERSONAL BECAUSE WHEN AN ARTIST DISSES HIS FANS HE'S BASICALLY TELLING ME IM TO BIG TO DEAL WITH THESE INSTORES. NOW IF YOU READ THE FIRST POST WERE I DISSED HIM ISAID IM DOING THIS CAUSE HE DISSED HIS FANS FIRST AND FOREMOST. WHICH IN HIS RESPONCE AT THE END CLAIMS WE GOT BEEF CAUSE IM TAKING FOOD OUT OF YOUR BABY'S MOUTH. "HELLO" WHAT DO YOU THINK THE INSTORE WAS? I MEAN COME ON ,YOU ALL TRY TO DOWN PLAY IT. THIS IS NOT ABOUT TICKETS THIS IS ABOUT HOW HE DISSED HIS FANS. PERIOD. AGAIN WHY DO THE INSTORE? OK SO I POSTED ON MY WEBSITE THAT HE DISSED HIS FANS AND HIS ABLUM IS WACK. IM THE DJ AND I FELT HIS ALBUM WAS NOT TO THE STANDARDS HE WAS SETTING FOR HIMSELF PRIOR TO THE ALBUM. SO JUST CAUSE YOU LIKE HIM DOESN'T MEAN HIS ALBUM CAN'T BE WACK. SO ALL THIS TIME SINCE THE FIRST TIME SOMEONE CANCELLED ON HIM HE'S BEEN MAD. WHICH HIS MANAGER HAD ALREADY TOLD ME IT WAS COOL. SO THAT'S BETWEEN THEM. STOP AGAIN TRYING TO SAY TALIB WAS UNAWARE. I'LL TELL YOU WHY. ON THE AIR HE TOLD ME AND EVERYONE THAT HE DID NOT GO TO THE INSTORE BECAUSE HE WAS TIRED.HE DID TWO INSTORES AND WAS TIRED. NOW I ASK YOU OR TALIB HOW TIRING IS IT TO SIGN AUTOGRAPHS? COME ON I CAN'T BUY THAT, ANY ONE WHO DOES IS JUST REACHING "PERIOD". THEN 2 MINUTES LATER ON THE AIR HE SAID HE DIDN'T GO TO THE INSTORE BECAUSE IT WAS MY STORE.WHICH IS IT I ASK YOU?

OK BEFORE THE LAST CONCERT, HE WENT TO A RECORD STORE LOOKING FOR ME? THEN HE DISSED ME ON STAGE AND CALLED ME OUT? I CALL THAT VERBAL TREATS TO MY WELL BEING. NO SUGAR COATING THIS ONE PERIOD. OK HE WANTED TO DISS ME IN FRONT OF 800 PEOPLE. I GOT THE CALLS RIGHT AWAY. SO I PULLED OUT MY TIM DOG RECORD "I DON'T GIVE A FUCK" AND DEDICATED THAT SONG TO TALIB AND HI TEK. WHICH I MAY ADD I HEARD WANTS NOTHING TO DO WITH DISS. "SO HI-TEK IM NOT ADDRESSING THIS TO YOU" SO AFTER HE TAUGHT IT WAS COOL TO DISS ME ON STAGE HE GOT WIND OF THE STATION. IM SURE HE COULD NOT BELIEVE I WOULD DISS HIM OVER THE AIRWAVES. AGAIN PEOPLE LETS REMEMBER WHERE YOU GOT YOUR START FROM. I DON'T PULL NO PUNCHES FOR THOSE WHO KNOW ME. WHICH YOU'LL SOON READ.

OK AFTER HE CALLS THE RADIO SHOW AND STARTS TALKING . THEN YELLING, THEN CUSSING. I COULD NOT GET IN A WORD EVEN WHEN I WAS TRYING TO SPEAK WE LOWERED THE VOLUME SO I COULD SAY WHAT I HAD TO SAY. HE WAS STILL YELLING. WHEN WE RAISED THE VOLUME BACK UP. SO AFTER THIS HAD OCCURED I WENT TO RAWKUS.COM AND POSTED AN MESSAGE ON THERE BOARD. NOW PEOPLE ARE SAYING I DIDN'T TRY TO SQUASH IT? READ THE POST BEFORE THERE WAS A BOYCOTT. I DID THE INSTORE WITHOUT KNOWING HE WAS MAD THEN. HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO HUMBLE MYSELF? I HAVE REACHED OUT TO THE LABEL. IT'S FUNNY HOW HIS POST GOT SENT TO ALL THE LABELS AND ALL THE INDUSTRY PEOPLE. TO BAD THEY DIDN'T FORWARD MINE SO THAT THIS WOULD NOT ESCALTE THE WAY IT HAS.

NOW TALIB FEELS THE NEED TO BRING BAHAMADIA AND BAD SEED INTO THIS. ALL YOU PEOPLE COMPLAINING ABOUT THIS SHOULD BE BETWEEN ME AND HIM? WHY HAVEN'T YOU ASKED TALIB THAT SAME QUESTION.? WHAT DO THOSE TWO PEOPLE HAVE TO DO WITH YOU AND ME? FOR YOUR INFO THE BAHAMADIA QUESTION THAT LEAD TO THE WHOLE THING WAS ME NOT GETTING TICKETS TO A 3 DAY SHOW IN TOWN. IT WASN'T ADDRESSED TO BAHAMADIA BUT SHE DECIDED TO ANSWER IT AND TOLD ME NOT TO TAKE THINGS PERSONAL. THEN SHE TOOK IT PERSONAL AND BEGAN TO GET HEATED. AGAIN THIS IS WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT. SOME OF YOU THINK CAUSE WERE DOING COLLEGE IT'S OK TO NOT RESPECT US? THINK AGIAN. "THINGS HAVE GOT TO CHANGE"

NOW THE BAD SEED THING TALIB DON'T EVEN KNOW THE WHOLE STORY SO HE SHOULD HAVE BROUGHT THIS UP. LETS MAKE THIS CLEAR. I HAD BOOKED "BADSEED " AND "WHAT WHAT" TO DO A SHOW IN CHICAGO WITH BREEZE EVAHFLOWIN. EVERYONE IN THE MAKING RECORDS CAMP WANTED TO COME BUT I ONLY HAD ROOM FOR TWO. THIS EVENT WAS FUNDED SOLELY BY MYSELF. ASK BREEZE HE SLEPT ON THE FLOOR THAT WEEKEND. NOW THE NIGHT BEFORE I SPOKE TO OCEAN AND THEY TOLD ME EVERYTHING WAS COOL. THE DAY OF THE SHOW I GET A CALL FROM MAKIN MUSIC SAYING THAT THEY COULD NOT COME BECAUSE "BAD SEED" HAD DEVELOPED "PINK EYE" I WAS NOT AWARE OF THE FACT THAT BAD SEED AND WHAT WHAT WERE DATING AT THE TIME. SO I ASKED WHAT ABOUT WHAT WHAT, THEY SAID SHE'S NOT LEAVING SEEDS' SIDE. I SAID WHAT ABOUT ALL THE OTHER PEOPLE THAT WANTED TO GO? THEY ALL SAID NO. SO I TOLD THEM THE TICKETS WERE NON-REFUNDABLE AND THEY BASICALLY TOLD OH WELL. SO THEN WORDS WERE EXCHANGED AND TREATS TO MY LIFE WERE MADE. NOW I DON'T PLAY. SO I SPOKE WITH BYZEONE, AND J-GRAND AND WE HAD KINDA SQUASHED THE WHOLE THING. NOW 1 YEAR AGO WHILE I WAS IN JAPAN BAD SEED CAME TO CHICAGO (KNOWING I WAS IN JAPAN) AND DISSED ME. ) SO THAT'S THE WHOLE DEAL WITH THAT.

NOW SINCE ALL YOU GUYS AND GIRLS ARE TRYING TO BREAK IT DOWN, AND SAY IT'S ALL ABOUT ME AND NOT THE FANS? REREAD THE POST AGAIN. LETS NOT TALK ABOUT THE FANS.

RAWKUS VS FATBEATS
OK HERE'S THE DEAL. I HAVE HELD BACK ON THIS CAUSE IT MADE ME SICK TO HEAR WHAT WENT DOWN WITH THIS.
FIRST OF ALL RAWKUS IS A DRUM AND BASS LABEL.
FAT BEATS IS A INDEPENDENT HIP HOP RECORD STORE/DISTRIBUTOR.
FOR YEARS FATBEATS HAS SUPPORTED RAWKUS. THEY MADE RAWKUS A HOUSE WHOLE NAME. THIS IS WHEN RAWKUS STILL HAD THE LOGO OF THE ROSE AND THE RAZOR BLADE. SO FATBEATS MADE RAWKUS. NOW LAST YEAR SOMETIME RAWKUS'S OWNERS AND JOE (FAT BEATS OWNER ) HAD A MEETING. RAWKUS WANTED TO BUY FATBEATS (STORES, DIST, NAME ETC....)JOE TOLD THEM NO. SO RAWKUS PEOPLE GOT MAD AND TOLD FAT BEATS THAT THERE WHOLE PURPOSE WAS TO CRUSH FAT BEATS, BY THIS TIME NEXT YEAR FAT BEATS WOULD NOT BE AROUND. THEY ALSO MADE FAT BEATS TAKE ALL THERE (RAWKUS) PRODUCT OUT OF THERE STORE. THEY (FAT BEATS ) WERE NOT ALLOWED TO SELL THE JURASSIC 5 ALBUMS IN ANY OF THERE STORE'S. "COME ON THAT WAS AND EASY 10,000 UNITS" "DO YOU CARE ABOUT THE ARTIST? I HAVEN'T TOLD PEOPLE THIS STORY ,BUT SINCE TALIB FEELS THE NEEDTO BRING STUFF THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE SITUTATION, THEN I HAVE TO LET THE PEOPLE KNOW THE REAL DEAL. LIKE WHY IS SHABAM NOT ON RAWKUS? LIKE WHY DID KOOL G RAP GET A SINGLE DEAL? LET'S BE REAL, IF YOU LOVE HIP HOP THEN LIVE HIP HOP AND REALIZE THAT EVERYTHING IN HIP HOP STILL CAN'T BE BROUGHT.
ON THAT NOTE I EXTEND THE INVITATION TO TALIB TO GET AT ME AND LETS SQUASH THIS.
LOVE WILL ALWAYS BE LOVE
DJ3RDRAIL

that's COMPLETELY counterproductive to getting exposure, so i understand why you're doing that.

>I GOT A CALL LAST
>MINUTE ABOUT THEM WANTING TO

>INTEVIEW. I SAID "HELL NO"
>NO TICKETS NO INTERVIEW. YOU

talib sez: "I was looking forward to coming on the show and knew nothing about his ticket woes, which really have nothing to do with me."

which seems to be true since it was Rawkus that called you @ the last minute...

>THINGS HAVE GOT TO CHANGE
>FOR COLLEGE DJ'S EVERYWERE. LETS
>MAKE THAT THE FINAL CONCLUSION
>WHEN ALL IS SAID AND
>DONE. SO AFTER ARGUING WITH

so, this is really about you crusading for more perks for college DJ's?

>NEXT TIME IN TOWN (NOW HERE'S
>WERE PEOPLE GET EVERYTHING TWISTED)
>THEY ASKED ME (THE LABEL),
>TO DO AN INSTORE.

talib sez: "Rawkus rep calls 3rd Rail at the last minute to set up an in-store at the store he worked at. Problem was, they forgot to tell me about it until the last minute."

>THE POST. OK A HOUR
>AND A HALF PAST AND
>I GET A CALL FROM
>THE STREET TEAM THAT HE
>WAS TO TIRED TO COME
>TO THE INSTORE.

talib sez: "When I heard people were waiting though, I was on
my way. Then I hear that it was 3rd Rail's store. Not two months earlier 3rd Rail said I couldn't do his radio show because he didn't get tickets to a show I wasn't even on the bill for. I'm thinkin', "I'm about to go out of my way for his in-store? Fuck That!" I turned the car around, said fuck 3rd Rail, took a nap
and rocked my show with the Roots, Slum Village, Bahamadia, dead prez, Flo, the Jazzys, Jag and all the real fans who don't bitch and moan about the humanity of their artists."

so, his 'pettiness' about cancelling the in-store basically stems back to your 'pettiness' over the tickets which goes back to Rawkus lack of offering them to you (Rawkus, which isn't necessarily the same as Kweli).

>SO I
>TOLD THE FANS , AT
>THE STORE AND THEY RETURNED
>ALL THE PRODUCT THEY HAD
>BROUGHT. RIGHT THERE I TOOK
>IT PERSONAL BECAUSE WHEN AN
>ARTIST DISSES HIS FANS HE'S
>BASICALLY TELLING ME IM TO

>INSTORES. NOW IF YOU READ

talib sez: "For all the fans who were at the in-store ... I'm sorry, but shit happens. Schedules conflict, people give out false info. If you take that kind of shit personal, that's your issue. I never agreed to do that in-store, Rawkus set that up. And if it's a choice between doing an in-store and getting enough rest so that I can rock properly, I gotta take care of myself. If I don't rock, ya'll don't buy the records, and there is no in-store."

>DOWN PLAY IT. THIS IS
>NOT ABOUT TICKETS THIS IS
>ABOUT HOW HE DISSED HIS
>FANS. PERIOD. AGAIN WHY DO

all of it could've been prevented if Rawkus had hooked you up with tickets or if you hadn't made the tickets a big deal.

>INSTORE BECAUSE HE WAS TIRED.HE
>DID TWO INSTORES AND WAS
>TIRED. NOW I ASK YOU
>OR TALIB HOW TIRING IS
>IT TO SIGN AUTOGRAPHS? COME

come on, guy--In-stores aren't just about signing autographs, they're about interacting with people. everyone gets tired of dealing with people--much less cats that are supposedly 'celebrities' that have a stream of fans coming in wanting stuff signed, wanna talk, wanna slang demos, and all of that...sometimes for an hour or two...that would bug most people and drive 'em crazy. but the cat did 2 in-stores that day...it seems that most artists only do 1 appearance in-store, if they do one at all.

>ON I CAN'T BUY THAT,
>ANY ONE WHO DOES IS
>JUST REACHING "PERIOD". THEN 2
>MINUTES LATER ON THE AIR
>HE SAID HE DIDN'T GO
>TO THE INSTORE BECAUSE IT
>WAS MY STORE.WHICH IS IT
>I ASK YOU?

from what i read, it seems that the cat was tired and really didn't wanna do it--but heard that there were fans waiting--so he decided to do it, then found out that you were involved and was still salty over you dissing him and the album. so, he subsquently had even more reason to cancel, in his mind.

>OK BEFORE THE LAST CONCERT, HE

yeah, i question the whole 'which is more public? the show? or the internet?' thinking that Kweli displayed...

>GOT THE CALLS RIGHT AWAY.
>SO I PULLED OUT MY
>TIM DOG RECORD "I DON'T

but not giving a fuck entails organizing a boycott--that's how much you don't give a funk?

>HAD OCCURED I WENT TO

>ON THERE BOARD. NOW PEOPLE

why would you go to Rawkus.com? the guy doesn't frequent his own personal website's boards (at least under his own name), much less the website of the company that happened to release his album.

>I HAVE REACHED OUT TO
>THE LABEL. IT'S FUNNY HOW

i see that at the end of your post, you extend your hand to Kweli--that's the direct manner...not contacting the label, i would imagine.

>HIS POST GOT SENT TO
>ALL THE LABELS AND ALL
>THE INDUSTRY PEOPLE. TO BAD
>THEY DIDN'T FORWARD MINE SO
>THAT THIS WOULD NOT ESCALTE
>THE WAY IT HAS.

who sent his post where? maybe cats just read it off the boards.

>ALL ABOUT ME AND NOT
>THE FANS? REREAD THE POST
>AGAIN. LETS NOT TALK ABOUT
>THE FANS.

you mentioned that you dissed him because you thought he dissed his fans...

>RAWKUS VS FATBEATS

this really doesn't have too much to do with you and Talib's thing...

Good way of summing it up. Seems like Rawkus made some errors too. Hopefully this will end with with no noise.

177. "Yeah, but how is the *album* wack?!?"
In response to Reply # 151


  

          

It's clear that the brother is letting his personal feelings toward RE color his critique. This guy states that "Train of Thought" wasn't up to the standards set by RE in past efforts.
Frankly, I'm not sure how he could come to that conclusion, assuming that he's a fan of that style of music. It's one thing to say that it wasn't deserving of all of the hype, or some similar statement. But to come out and label the album *wack* is clearly an attempt to use his bully pulpit to dis back.

To be honest, his willingness to stretch the truth in that area has tainted his reputation in my eyes--I'm less likely to believe his version of the story at this point.

Keynote, original lurker since 1990-whatever. Now that Angie gave me back my name, I can post with impunity.

And soon, I'll be wearing the new shoes.

You're a "college" D.J.??!?!?!? I know all those books they make you buy at college have purty pictures and stuff, but you need to invest in a Speak 'N Spell before you even begin to think about college.

Understandable, yes...but you can't even pretend that it's anywhere near college-level? My favorite is the use of quotes to add emphasis.

152. " We lost 3rd rail and Talib, too much violence in hip hop why yo"
In response to Reply # 0


          

Until Talib see's 3rd rail?
What then? a fight, a battle, guns, knives. You are both equally wrong at this point. Who was wrong first is long lost in the aftermath. Two wrongs do not make a right, and they don't make an even. How did the beef between Biggie and Tupac begin? Just imagine if fools were in the web back then, they might have died a couple years sooner. I teach third grade and I just stopped two little boys from having a similar disagreement, it's called he said, she said! I personally feel that they are both ego trippin like a Nikki Giovanni poem. Blu magazine has an article called starfucka's, and this board is full of them. I don't know 3rdrail, but I do know Talib and I still feel that this situation escalated as a reflection of poor judgement! Is ignorance truly bliss? Are the rose tinted visors really that in place? It's interesting to observe how quickly we make exceptions for the morality of those we admire.
The truth of the matter is both gentleman(and I use the term loosely)are in the wrong. 3rd rail should not have used his position on the radio and internet to bash Talib. Talib should not have used his position as a performer to retaliate against ignorance. Instead he perpetuated the ignorance, and has no one to blaim but himself for the continued attack. 3rd rail displayed his maturity level prior to the internet bash, so Talib(who is very intelligent, with an amazing amount of perception)should have expected this. The sentiment of his response calls for a continuation of the beef and that is a problem. Remove the star studded bias and you have two men arguing over who they consider themselves to be. Right now, they both look arrogant, egotistical, and stubborn. Maybe you feel that one has more of a right, but a strong spirituality dictates that dose of humbleness never hurt anyone.

We lost 3rd rail and Talib too much violence in hip hop..Why Yo?

"and then there were none....."

178. "RE: Attention all MC's, DJ's..."
In response to Reply # 0


          

First off i would like to say what up to all my hip hop cats out there.

Its very unfortunate that shit like this has to go down in hip hop which can get blown way out of proportion. I'm from Chicago however i'm in the military and have been gone from the chi for over 10 years therefore i'm not too familiar with 3rd rail. Talib Kweli and Hi-Tek have blessed us with one fat album that will go down as a true masterpiece for years to come. This thing going on with 3rd rail shouldn't make the real hip hop heads turn their back on Reflection Eternal so i wouldn't sweat that shit......i hear good things about 3rd rail also so i'm not taking anything away from that cat especially since i don't have the background to make a proper judgment on him. I just hear that he is well respected out in the chi also. I hope you cats can work through this static.

Try to get some shows down here in San Antonio and rock these down south cats! Much love to all my TX okayplayers.....One love

if you've only been listening to hip-hop 3 years, I would hardly expect you to have heard of a hip-hop college radio DJ.

Cause I took my boy Dan into the HMV on Queen and got him to finally pick up the Reflection Eternal joint. Speak for yourself dude, Canada loves Kweli, he knows it, BTW who the fuck is 3rd Rail? I think that answers this beef.

Where is this "Canadian" Boycott taking place? You trying to tell me that ALL of the HMV stores no longer carry the record? HMV is a huge BUSINESS, they don't get involved in beef between a lesser known artist and an even lesser known DJ. If you think otherwise, then you are really a FOOL.

If your family wasn't actin like one they wouldn't be called one. Why don't you boycott cats that are actually contributing to the decline of OUR CIVILIZATION AS A WHOLE and not a head tryin to do better for himself and hiphop in general? Just because Talib doesn't like your DJ and said so at TALIB'S show doesn't mean that he isn't positive. Jesus Christ had beef with Judas does that mean Jesus didn't practice what he preaches? Eminem said he hated gays and then did a song with one of the biggest. Are you gonna boycott him too? No? Only because he didn't dis your homey. Can't you see how dumb that sounds?

How is 3rd Rail your family? Cuz you type in all caps?

PLEASE don't tell me it's because you're a college radio/"underground" DJ. You have some kind of affinity with a dude you never met? You wanna take someone else's beef and make it your own so, what, you can buy Solidarity Insurance in The Game of Life? What are you, stupid?

Dialog and Third Rail,

I spin at two different stations. We do get serviced with Rawkus and Reflection Eternal product and we do report to various trades. Enough shitting on college dj's from these ungrateful artists and executives. We at our stations will support the Boycott and spread the word to other dj's. I also belong to a radio coalition that consists of over fifteen nationwide college/community radio stations. You guys have nothing but support on this end.

basiclly if no one has ever heard one of third rail's shows then you can't comment on him,and just the tone kweli takes in his voice is very negative and negates his postive work in my opinion,instead of helping the man Kweli again puts him down and hides behind his seeds(wth)and whatnot,if he knows where third is at then how come he doesn't sqelch it?(cause thats what grown men do)even after the convo on the radio show was over there was a call to end the so called beef but he didn't try to call back,if you would of heard kweli's way of "talking" out a situation you wouldv'e been suprised anyways like krs said be an educated consumer.

oh kweli called us internet people"internet geeks"lol
big ups to Third Rail.

OOOOOh, am I out of the loop!!! I'm from Chicago and I've heard 3rd rail's raidio show a couple a' times. It was ok. But I'm partial to quality hip-hop and am usually keen on the diff. bet. what's stale and what's innovative. A contest bet. Hi-Tek and 3rd???? Hi-Tek, definately hands down, up, and tied behind his back.

I'm sure what ever 3rd rail had to say wasn't important engough to warrant any extra energy.

I guarantee that even if Talib didn't respond, he would have seen a net decrease of "0" in record sales....come on now?! We're talkin' polished production, rhymes that can only be deciphered with active thought, and a dj with beats that speak directly to he rhymes. A successful boycott would require support that 3rd ust doesn't have.

I'm out of town at school and may not have the info. to comment on the quality of 3rd's work, but I'm sure this boycott business was part of a dream that he had about he and some aliens taking over the world via subliminal messages over the internet.

"Yeah, you pronounce my name KWELI....Any questions?"

Personally, I'm partial to quality hip-hop, and have a love-hate relationship with Chicago.

Hey just to let you know I was at the in store that day it was a tuesday and your show was the same night right well I waited with like 10 other guys and 3rd Rail said you would be there which shit man i was hoping to exchange pounds at least but u know thats in the past and I still bought your cd and it was phat loved it beat it and just it was a real hip hop record and i thank you for putting music like that you and Hi-tek and another thing i went to the lyricist lounge show and to be honest you were the best and gave everyone a shit load of energy and then at the end you busted on to stage and kicked one last verse now this isn't to suck up to anyone fuck that! but to show my love and respect for u and Hi-tek and the music thanx and in 3rd rails case hes cool but if it went down like that and i were in the same situation i would have done the same thang!!

We'll Peace and keep rocking it!!!!!
