"To ?uestlove and Black Thought, And how you dissapoint this 15 year old ..."


          

I just checked out DA JAWN section at the roots website. And i watched a video where Black Thought and ?uestlove are smoking a spliff(hopefully someone will prove me wrong and say it is a cigarette). What the f**k is that man? You guys are supposed to be my role models. I look up to you guys. I would have never thought that you guys smoke the ish. I know Talib does but he doesn't post videos of him blidded out his mind fumbling around the studio.
I just want you all to know. I serious don't want to see any of the okayplayer artists in the news paper with the headlines ". . . CAUGHT WITH ILLEGAL CONTRABAN."
So just i want to remind you guys that i look up to you artist, and i want you guys to think before you put video like that out.

Excuse all my grammatical errors i am to lazy to check this over.

Black Thought and ?uestlove
>are smoking a spliff

Damn, ?uestlove has a hidden life. I have never ever ever ever ever seen him smoking herb...or a cigarette. Matter of fact, he doesn't even inhale too hard when incense is around.

Check again...sure that was ?uest? You know how ishy Real Video can look at times.

You have got to be kidding me right? I didn't agree with what that cat had to say either but yo... Do you have to get all funky on him/her like that? You see it's this kind of devisivness that has plagued our people for centuries..Just because that person doesn't think like you, doesn't mean he is a punk. As a matter of fact I would like you to figure for yourself who is the bigger punk. The guy who wants some positivity in his life or the guy who has to call others names because he cannot articulate any better than that?
Peace to all of you

all right, i watched it and i am not sure that it was ?uest. as much as there is argument about role models etc., i would be disappointed if it was. and i am disappointed that it is thought, even though I knew that before.

Damn. Should it matter to me that much? not sure. but nevertheless, ?uest, say it ain't so.

if you dont like smoking...dont smoke. if you like the music..then listen.
but dont judge another person because they choose to smoke. just because something is illegal doesnt mean that it is "wrong" and just because something is legal doesnt mean that its "right" (remember, slavery was legal)
let them live... be thankful that you even got a peek inside that studio, but dont judge.
peace

well. that goes to show you that you can't follow others when it comes to key decisions of your life. you will only wind up dissapointed and let down. trust, i've learned this the hard way. heard records and messages from people only to discover that they aren't what they are cracked up to be. (a fan in kansas almost had to call the ambulance when she discovered that "be healthy" dead prez drinks......--gulp-- beer. i mean she was fit to be tied.

i don't smoke. but that ain't the point. you learn what is right and wrong. 15 or 50. you have a brain......don't put your life in the hands of others.


think. it ain't illegal yet.

Who gives a rats ass what ?uest and Thought do?!? If they smoke herb, so what? I do...it's from the earth, a plant. You pick the buds, dry, and smoke....It's not synthetic like acid, X, or any others...It's not deadly like heroin or caine. So, what's your beef? Your role model has to be a holy man now or somethin? Try looking at the positive that they have done instead of pointing out what seems to be a fault in your eyes. The fact that they smoked an L in a video, if they even did...shouldn't inhibit how you look at them...that's all I'm trying to say here. So...::puff::...try not to...::puff puff::...be so judgemental...::cough cough cough::

19. "How Dre 3000 broke my heart."
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

Some of ya'll may have read 'bout how Dre has occasionally dipped in the E/mushrooms.

When I first read that, my jaw literally HIT the floor. Now see... Dre is my rhyme hero. I LUV dat dude on the mic.

And coincidentally, he's actually served as inspiration for me abstaining from from some things. Is that sad? Maybe. Is is true? Somewhat.

But should I go get lifted/get drunk/smoke up, just cause Dre does every now and then? Should I stop fighting the good fight? Naw, that'd be wack.

The truth is, I've NEVER really done any of those things. I didn't NOT do them just because of Andre. Did he help make it easier, perhaps giving a little validation to us ascetics? Yup.

But even if he's on some other ish now, I still gotta be me.

I like him cause he can straight FLOW. The fact that he validated some things I've always done (err...not done) just made him even cooler.

dont idolize people you dont know. just because they make good music doesnt mean a damn thing about the person they really are. some of the best musicians are bad people and do bad things (not saying that quest or though are...i dont know if they are or are not and really dont care i just like the music) this not only goes for musicans it goes for sports figures and all other entertainers! how can you look up to someone you dont know. ive never understood that. you look up to someone you know personally...and can honestly know their heart like your parents. a tight battle rhyme and hype kick doesnt make someone a role model!

You're a young head, you'll discover that much is not what it seems in this world, hip-hop or otherwise.

Take heart. thought smokes, yes indeed, but that shouldn't influence you to do so.

I feel your pain as a young fan. The more you learn about the practicioners of this culture, the more cats you put on a pedestal start looking, well, like ordinary folks (which they are, anyway).

I don't think anyone has seriously repsonded to your concerns (except for maybe Quest). All I'd say to you is, stay on your path.

I'm an emcee and I don't smoke. I gotta admit, I'm always happy to find fellow cats that also don't smoke, but a lot of my Amphibian brethren indulge (or have indulged) in the smoke. You just have to do what you feel is right, regardless of where the majority goes.

My a-alike in Amphibians is a drinker and a smoker and has 4 kids. Lifestyle-wise, we are total opposites, but goddamn if we don't mix like kool-aid, water and sugar in that vocal booth.

Spread love,

Spirit

28. "Can not believe you are saying this..."
In response to Reply # 25


          

What is funny to me is that you pre judge people to such an extent that you don't have respect for what they are about after you find an "error" about them. For one, i believe you needed to think about what you posted before you posted. You could have caused madd controversy. Also, I don't know if you've ever smoked herb, but it is not just what you see on TV. It can (if you have an elevated mind) cause you to see things in this world far beyond your normal sight. I think it is a thing nature produced and why is it wrong to use it. I do understand that it is illegal, but whatever, many thing are illegal but people do it all anyway. That being besides the point, my bad, i was on a tangent. I was never a big smoker before, but over the past year, i have learned to appreciate many things about life. I see the beauty in many more things. Music is my soul food and when I am (for lack of a better word) "lifted" my creativity blossoms into the flower i know it can be. Now my thoughts here are not to just say that it is the reason i am so creative, but it is either a catalyst or a placebo. Anyway, Black Thought is one of my favorite emcees, smoking or not, his talent is almost incomparable, and Brther Question is in my opinion one of the illest producers around...So word to your soul man, be your own man and love yourself enough to make your own decisions about things you do. One love!

p.s., i'm sre i left out a lot of things i wanted to say...actually, i have a philosophy final in 1.5 hours, any more studying will just fall out my right ear..haha...peace out ya'll

There is a wonderful line in a Tool song that goes something like this "If you look at music and judge people as to whether or not they have done drugs you might as well throw your music collection out of the window" I mean get real bro.Are you gonna stop listening to Bob Marley because he smoked weed and he was the granddaddy of the splif.DO NOT judge a man unless you have walked in his shoes.Most of the Be-Bop artist from the 30's to the 60's did herion does that make them bad people,NO it just mean's that was the best way they new to deal with their lives at that time.Now get off your #$%&'in soap box and smoke a joint.

In response to Reply # 0


  

          

I'm not dissapointed when I heard artists I like do drugs because they are role models, and I could really careless what they do outside of the studio. The thing is, however, I feel that when some given artist needs to get baked in order to do something creative, that they are dissapointing me. Its like I think that they are some truly gifted creative person, and then you find out its all the herb. Think of it this way. Say you took some weird ass modern art painting; it may look strange, and even simple to make, but people respect it because there's some meaning to it. However, what if you learned that the artist simply threw paint at the canvas. That would be dissapointing. Weather you like the painting or not, the process in which it was made, does matter. I guess, if you're gonna go and take your admiration of a given artist to the point of calling them a genius, they should be able to create their art with out being on the drugs. So, I think I know whats meek is talking about, but I desagree with the part about them being role models. You gotta do your own thing. Think of it like this, if you didn't have a job and all you did in your life was make and play music, the that lifestyle is fine, but if you're going to school and trying to grow up, its not.

>I would have never
>thought that you guys smoke
>the ish.

I also consider myself a fan of both ? and Thought. I have been a Roots fans since "Distortion to Static." I have basked in the genius of their sound so long that I can tell that Thought rocks the ganj ("I inhale equality/follow me"--how much more could he have said?) In fact, he has subtly told us over the course of the last 3 albums, if you care to really listen to what he is sayin' (I don't have ORGANIX but I bet he says it there somewhere too...). So for this to come as such a huge surprise and dissapointment for you is really your own fault. Now with ?uestlove, that's something else ("...in my Pumas down the avenue/not tokin' on a j/not sippin' on a brew..."--pardon me if I screwed up the words). The point is, the music is the most important element. So what Thought gets high? So what he's so comfortable with that he doesn't mind if the world knows it. He's not sayin' go out and smoke yourself retarted. And even if he did that doesn't mean you have to go and do it. You have something called free will--recognize and exercise that. Mostly everybody on this thread has given you some really good advice. As a young cat you have alot of battles before you; just live your life according to your standards of happiness and don't let what you are fed through tv/magazines/books/technicsoundsystems define that for you.

Exactly my sentiments whatever quest or black thought does is their business and their business only.I mean they are human beings who are we to judge what they do?I think athletes and entertainers should not be held up to different standards then anyone else they are here for entertainment purposes.if you wanna look for role models look at your parents or someone in your immediate circle.Don't get me worng i hear what you are saying but what they do is their business.
