Damn y'all insist on collaborating with that wretched macy woman. Make sure that the cd single has an instrumental track.

I feel you. Macy Gray is a clown! I don't want Common fratenizing with a clown of this magnitude. The Wayans Brothers sure did a good job of pegging her ass on the MTV VMA awards. Good job, boys.

Please, that's my opinion and I don't want to hear anything from the clown supporters.

That would be a third hand raised in unison. Common knows better than Macy Gray... there is so much talent out there. And especially if you gonna replace D' with that whiny voiced, ripoff artist.... Yo I DO NOT like Macy Gray and I don't want her on one of my favorite artist remix that is being sent to radio and tv! The shit pisses me off before I've even heard it.

Peace,

I would guess it's to get folks to buy the album AND the single. Give 'em something different.

I wish more cats would release completely different songs with their singles. Like all that classic Prince stuff. Or "If the Papes Come."

>?uest should be the one to
>explain why Macy and not
>D'Angelo

...just a guess...

Virgin Records is probably about to pop out another D'angelo single pretty soon and they didn't want to compete with another single with D'angelo on it... so.. they wouldn't give MCA clearance to use it for the next single.

happens all the time... take Santana's album for instance... no label wanted to give clearance for a single until *after* "Smooth" took off and annoyed half the population.

He said something about macy knowing how to hit the notes and that D'angelo was going to work with her on that. It had to do with some sort of theory. Let me look it up in the archives and I'll get back to y'all.

Dammit, I am completely disgusted by this news! That is one of my all time favorite songs, but ya'll felt compelled to remix it with Jay Dee (I love damn near all of his work, but this track just isn't him, n/m?), and to rub it even further into the dirt, you had to put Macy Gray on there over D'?! *sigh* D' just didn't feel like being in the video, huh? You could have at least put Bilal on there, but nooooooooooo...! I love almost all of Common's work, but that just wasn't a song to mess with! I hope it doesn't ruin the original for me! Just my opinion, though, so please restrain yourself from biting off a piece of my ass. Peace, Love, and SOUL!!!

WTF?!..You obviously never heard the original version of "Ghetto Heaven." If you had, you would know that D's vocals are so on-point that its pathetic. (The vocals are s'posed to be haunting, like the theme song in the mind of the average brother in the struggle of everyday life!)--in the spirit of Curtis and Marvin--become a student of the game, and do your homework people!

i wasn't feelin the track. the whole album had a groove and a feel to it, i just thought this track interrupted that otherwise tight feel. d' mailed that shit in, common didn't sound very enthusiastic, the track was cold, it all sounded like an afterthought. not a BAD song, but the weakest song on a great album.

..the song was the under-current... it moves, almost unnoticed like a subconscious thought (second nature). You're right though, its mellow compared to anything else on the album, but I still feel it holds its on.

Big Ups to Questlove, my man, for droppin that Magnolia reference. along with American Beauty and Fight Club( underrated) Magnolia was one of the best movies of last year. It was the Jawn. PTA is the sickest young director out there and the man can write. IM tired of hearin all thes people bitchin about how its 3 hours. i wish it were longer. If one has seen Magnolia and liked it, you are automatically smarter than anyone that didn't. Quest is ill!

You just played yourself. Now while you are entitled to your opinion that doesn't make a person with a different opinion less 'smart.'
Personally I was really disappointed by Magnolia, I was looking forward to seeing it but honestly its a good bad movie. I'm sorry but I thought it was a wanna-be-different movie that was trite from start to finish. The characters to me were all to easy and so manufactured. Sorry no depth. And as for biblical references...money please..having frogs drop from the sky don't impress me...that shit is just straight hackeneyed symbolism for the sake of symbolic material. Sorry. I was deeply disappointed. I expected a lot more...
I didn't like magnolia...so i guess i'm not as smart as you. oh well...

I just think there are so many much more worthy people out there. Macy is not great and she has been in the game for just a minute. But if it's about what ?uestlove said, "see{ing}one of us go far" then more power to them.

:) Her voice and the lyrics are very expressive and she actually draws you(me) in... Fortunately she appeals to "others" which in time will increases her popularity and of course record sales. I have women of all ages and races talking about how her music is appealing. I like the raspiness of her voice..it makes her unique. Some people shoot her down because of her "looks" to me she is just another beautiful(ly) gifted woman who is a star in the making. In my opinion it was a wonderful colab. So I will definitely go cop the single. Don't get caught up in that old "idealism" of beauty. Be prepared to see/hear her often in the future.

she just has an awkward/bizarre demeanor. She does have "Tina Turner-esque" qualities to her voice. I just havent' heard one thing I could get with and I'm a lover of all music. I can find something to love in almost anything. We'll see.

45. "Listen"
In response to Reply # 39


  

          

I'm tired of this line of reasoning. I could care less that Oprah adn Rosie liek her.

Those of us that thinks she sucks, thinks she sucks because we have listened to her mediocre at best album and do not like it one bit. Unfortunately, I listened to it on several occassions ot make sure that is was garbage.

Now u like her cool. But damn, just cause Quest and co. have taken a liking to her doesn't change the fact that her voice makes some of us sick and her album was blah as hell. If u have a right to like her we have the same right to dislike her.

Like I said before if Quest and co. use her, I'll probably bang the instrumentals cause more than likely the track will be banging. On the "Water" remake I figure there is so much involved her voice will probably get drowned out. But if I have to sit around and listen to her, it ain't happening.

You don't have to quote me, just pay attention to what I say!

55. "What's really pathetic is..."
In response to Reply # 0


          

...all you people who are, everyday, praising ?uest and Common and D'Angelo, etc., then as soon as something doesn't come out the way you think it should you:
a) assume it's because one or all of them made a bad decision.
b) pass your personal taste off as legitimate criticism.
and/or
c) forget that there are ALWAYS outside factors.

This goes for the the "Ghetto Heaven" remix, the Okayplayer Tour, drama getting into Black Lily, the oft-delayed Kweli-Hi Tek site, and on down the line.

Obviously, I'm not talking about everyone. You know who you are. And some of this is to be expected, even encouraged in this family atmosphere. But come on, people. You have to take it for granted that these creative minds know what they are doing. You don't have to like everything they do, but as fans you should respect it. Else, what the eff you doing here?

BTW, I thought the album version was a little tired and clichéd. So effing what?

that's what i'm sayin. it wasn't BAD, but it didn't have enough to it that it could hold its own on that record, let alone as a single. but then again, mass audiences LOVE tired and cliched (how the hell do i get that accent???), and they love REMIXES of tired and cliched even more.... (tell me how to make an accent or i'll KILL you! )

>BTW, I thought the album version

so, what other songs fit into the "cliche" of "geto heaven 2" in hip-hop? I didn't realize "geto heaven" was following the conventions of some hip-hop subgenre. enlighten me, please.

i like "geto heaven", felt common's performance was heartfelt, thought D's vocals fit the mood of the track perfectly, and just generally liked the joint.

and i don't find anything terribly wrong with macy gray's voice. she sounds like tina turner to me. you guys hate tina turner's voice too?

macy gray is alright to me. no idea where all the strong animosity is coming from...does she not hit notes properly or something technical like that? or is it totally subjective?

(of course, a lot of music criticism is subjective, including my own)

93. "Since you asked."
In response to Reply # 88


          

First of all, my point in putting that in there was simply to say it doesn't matter whether I'm crazy about the song, I support Common and the others. I did not mean to spark any debate about the merits of the song.

Having said that, I must stand by what I said. I wasn't speaking about the music or the performances, but strictly about the subject matter of the song. Common does a lot of good things lyrically, evoking some genuinely creative imagery. But the "finding beauty in the hood" song has been a staple in rap music for several years now, and soul music for a lot longer than that. Each artist tries to do a different spin on it, tell it from their angle. But they all fall into the same genre.

Now, I don't have a whole list of song titles to post here to back me up, and you can call me on that. But I believe these are the types of songs that Tupac made his stock in trade towards the end of his career. In fact, its de riguer for west coast gangsta rappers to add, amongst all the violent bravado, one song about how they love the ghetto and as bad as it is there's still goodness there. And east coast artists have done their share of them as well.

More specifically in Common's song, he has a verse about how life in the music game is hard, he has the "strong woman" verse, he talks about "blunted eyes of youth search for a God" and how he wants folks to say "his life, it meant more". He may twist it with better metaphors and make it sound better than most, but are you really going to tell me you've never heard anyone talk about similar things in their songs?

Remember, this is just my opinion, but I've heard enough ghetto imagery songs. I've heard plenty of songs about finding God within the pain and hardship of life in the underclass. Even if this song is better than all the others, I have to ask, did we need another? (see Reign's thread in The Lesson.) I'd say, at least, I didn't. Maybe you did. Clearly, Common needed one. So that's cool. I'm looking for more.

Musically, the song is cool. Not outstanding or jaw dropping, but I like it. As it stands now, it does things you're not used to hearing in hip hop music, which is great. It's also what we've come to expect from all the artists who worked on it. So I'm actually anxious to hear where they take it.

Please note also, I never said anything about Macy Gray. I actually like her. Or at least, I don't mind her.

>But the "finding beauty in

>a staple in rap music
>for several years now

"finding beauty" in the hood is just the hook. listen to the verses. the verses and the hook are on two seperate topical paths. for a good chunk of the song, com is speaking to a woman about relationship advice, and he doesn't even say whether she's in the hood or the suburbs (such a woman could be anywhere).

in fact, my only beef with the song is the hook doesn't seem to match the topic matter of the verses. it's like the hook came from an entirely seperate song (i am assuming since it is "geto heaven pt 2" the hook is from an earlier song which I am unaware of).

>More specifically in Common's song, he
>has a verse about how
>life in the music game
>is hard,

which has nothing to do with the hood.

he has the
>"strong woman" verse,

which was not explicitly linked to the hood, nor was the hood mentioned in said verse, if memory serves.

he talks
>about "blunted eyes of
>youth search for a God"

said blunted eyes could just as well be in white teenage suburban faces as in black inner city or suburban faces.

>and how he wants folks
>to say "his life, it
>meant more".

which also is not explicitly connected to the hood.

no idea why you think this song is a remake of too short's "money in the ghetto" (or similar tunes). it is far from that simple.

He may twist
>it with better metaphors and
>make it sound better than
>most, but are you really
>going to tell me you've
>never heard anyone talk about
>similar things in their songs?

uh, that is the definition of songwriting. literature has been around thousands of years. usually the only originally in writing is in how you flip it...I mean, you could argue that "The Matrix" is like "Star Wars", based on the similar handling of mentor/mentee relationships and use of Zen philosophy, but those two movies are still markedly different.

96. "You are quibbling."
In response to Reply # 95


          

See, this is exactly the type of discussion I was trying to avoid.

>"finding beauty" in the hood is
>just the hook.

Since it's in the hook, in felt it was intended to encompass the whole song. If that is not the case, you need to take that up with Common, not me. Still, using the phrase "in the hood" was simply my way of categorizing what I feel is the viewpoint of this and some songs I say are similar. He doesn't say "hood" but that can be thought of as another word for ghetto. I did not mean it in the sense of "Boyz in the Hood," like I thought the song was about gangland stuff. But, rather, I feel the verses go through several scenarios that people who can be said to be from the hood (or from the ghetto, or from any disadvantaged situation) may go through or may be familiar with.

You say I need to listen to the whole song, and that's what I did - all day long today, so I could give a decent critique of it. It had been a while since I listened to it.

I think you know I listened to it, too, because you decided to relate everyone of my points about the verses to the whole "hood" interpretation. And like I said, I interpreted the hood thing as relating to any disadvantaged situation.

But let's do this again.

>com is speaking to a
>woman about relationship advice, and
>he doesn't even say whether
>she's in the hood or
>the suburbs (such a woman
>could be anywhere).

Yes, she could be anywhere, but the song is called "Geto Heaven," not "Suburban Heaven." He's telling her that she shouldn't let a man define her, and she should leave a man that's abusing her. She shouldn't worry about finding a good man; when she gets right with herself then a man will come. And she will get herself together by keeping her head up (to borrow a hook from Tupac) and finding strength in God.

>>More specifically in Common's song, he
>>has a verse about how
>>life in the music game
>>is hard,
>
>which has nothing to do with
>the hood.

No, not the hood, specifically, but he's once again talking about someone (himself) getting through a tough situation. He talks about how all the distractions he has to deal with can be distractions, temptations luring him from this path he has set himself on. He stays focused, in part, through his faith.

>he talks
>>about "blunted eyes of
>>youth search for a God"
>
>said blunted eyes could just as
>well be in white teenage
>suburban faces as in black
>inner city or suburban faces.

Yeah, white folks got problems too. Somehow, I don't think that's who he was talking about, but there's nothing exclusive in that phrase. More on this later.

>>and how he wants folks
>>to say "his life, it
>>meant more".
>
>which also is not explicitly connected
>to the hood.

No, not explicitly, but this whole verse is about how he's trying to succeed by overcoming the usual traps and roadblocks that trip up young people trying to rise up from the ghetto. He sees people all around him who try to do the right thing ("search for God") but can't seem to make it (in part because of their "blunted eyes"). Com wants to take these people with him and succeed for, or, on behalf of all of them. He knows they are all looking to him so in the very least he wants to represent correctly so that when he's gone, they can point to him as someone who did well and did it the right way. In this way, the people back in the hood - if I can throw that word back into the mix - will say that his life meant more.

>no idea why you think this
>song is a remake of
>too short's "money in the
>ghetto" (or similar tunes). it
>is far from that simple.

Don't even know that song, sorry. But the fact that you can mention it leads me to believe you at least know what type of song I'm talking about. Just because "Geto Heaven" is more complex, more lyrical, more creative - just flat out better than all the songs in its genre, doesn't remove it from that genre.

> He may twist
>>it with better metaphors and
>>make it sound better than
>>most, but are you really
>>going to tell me you've
>>never heard anyone talk about
>>similar things in their songs?
>
>uh, that is the definition of
>songwriting.

No, it's not. And what does the definition of songwriting have to do with anything? A good writer can take a clichéd subject and make it sound fresh. Still, it's a fresh take on a clichéd subject. The more clichéd the subject, the fresher the take on it has to be for it to stand out. I think "Geto Heaven" is fresh but not fresh enough to make me forget the many times I've heard songs about keeping your head up through tough situations, or keeping your head while all around you are losing theirs, or however you want to spin it - it's still saying life is hard but you can make it if you stay focused and find strength in God. This isn't a bad message, and there are lots of people who need to hear it. I'm just not one of them.

>literature has been around
>thousands of years. usually the
>only originally in writing is
>in how you flip it...

True, and my point is he didn't flip it in an original enough way to make me forget that it wasn't original. Human beings ran out of tuly unique situations so long ago that is even says in the Bible, "there's nothing new under the sun." Centuries later, there still isn't. But that's no excuse. The trick is making the old seem new. Common's song didn't seem new to me. But it did to you and apparently to a lot of other people.

>I mean, you could argue that
>"The Matrix" is like "Star
>Wars", based on the similar
>handling of mentor/mentee relationships and
>use of Zen philosophy, but
>those two movies are still
>markedly different.

I could argue that The Matrix was one of the most vacuous and trite - dangerously so - pieces of hogwash masquerading as "deep" to ever be churned out of a morally bankrupt studio system. But I know you don't want to hear that either. I will say that it's different enough from Star Wars to stand out. But you still call them both science fiction. ("The Matrix" is also infinitely inferior to "Star Wars." Once again, it's just my opinion, but one held by a lot of people who actually know how to write a screenplay.)

And regarding my opening statement, I don't mind talking about this. I actually encourage more people to listen and watch more critically and to share educated opinions (like yours) instead of just opinions. I just didn't think this thread was the place for it. I know it's about an Okayartist, but this is a subject for The Lesson. But whatever. I'm game.

From Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 10th Ed:

patronize: to adopt an air of condescension toward : treat haughtily or cooly

sarcasm: a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usu. directed against an individual

My first post was an attempt at sarcasm. I intended this one to be patronizing, only to demonstrate the difference.

?uest is the king of sarcasm, particularly when people ask him questions he has already answered. This is the spirit in which I responded to him. Giving him a taste of his own medicine, so to speak.

I thought it was humorous, with the Babelfish link a nice touch. Yet, if my witty barbs failed to fly true, alas, I must plead a momentary lapse of self-control, as I find myself suffering the dual detriment of sleep deprivation and overwork, and I most humbly ask for lenience .

Or, like they say, fuck him if he can't take a joke.

As I think about it now, I must do a slight retraction.

My reply to ?uest's post was intended to be neither sarcastic nor patronizing. He asked a legitimate question, but one I felt I had already answered. So I wanted to know if he was responding to my original post, or if he had read my answer to Spirit's question and wanted further clarification.

The implication in my post was that I felt it highly likely that he wouldn't like the answers I gave previously. But I wanted to know if he read it, or if I was starting from scratch.

Bullshit-seen it, smelled it, look at it, abused by it, sent money on it.
See, me and bullshit have a love/hate relationship,we fuck around with other from time to time. But, when Bullshit gets on my nerves, I tell it to get the fuck on. But, I love Bullshit so we cool for right now

I was really hoping for "Funky For You" to be the next single. When I heard that it was going to be "Ghetto Heaven"(Remix), I was cool. But c'mon, Macy Gray? I DO NOT like her voice! Why wouldn't D'Angelo sing on the track? I like Jay Dee's production, and I like ?uest's work, so we'll see...

MCA didn't demand "Ghetto Heaven" be the next single. The decision is still open between "GH" & "Funky For You". Unlike some in this post, we're waiting for this remix to be delivered & heard before folks make a decision.
By the way REDeye dropped some science like Craig G. & Marley Marl back in the day.

Check this out yo. That Ghetto Heaven jawn is tight and what not, but if you got any input on this situation make sure you pull for 'Funky 4 You', a much better choice. "Alriiigght, Okkk, Aliriiigght, Lets make it funky fo you nowww"

89. "just relax"
In response to Reply # 78


          

Allright I know that nobody here knows me and Im coming out of nowhere here (I hope you guys excuse the "new guy" for not making a bright entrance) but I am pretty disturbed by this whole hate on macy gray and vote for "funky for you" movement y'all got going. I will tell you straight up that Im not a Macy Gray fan (yeah the voice got to me too), but Im a huge Common ?uest and D fan and I respect their opinions on music. So to hear them talk about how they feel that this remix is off the hook, how in the world could you not want to even hear it???? I mean some of yall were just like "im gonna just play the instrumental", cumon now you have no idea what they put together. They are innovative musicians and are far from predictable, so how could you assume what they will make. Even though Im not crazy about Macy I'm extremely interested on how she performs on this jay dee remix (who knows maybe it will change how I listen to her entirely). You guys sound closed minded to me. I mean if you hear it and its terrible then fine, go ahead and diss, but if its off the hook (which i suspect) then you would look like real fools (to me at least).

oh yeah by the way I wouldn't want anyone to look like a fool.

Why are you guys hating on Macy? The single isn't
out yet and you dissin it already. I'm pretty sure if it passed Quest, Common, and Jay Dee approval then it should be HOT!!! Can it play first, I mean dag. And another thing Macy is not not that bad.

In response to Reply # 101


          

i know macy is getting mad love from the pop as well as soul crowds, so i imagine that her on the single will expose common to new crowds, i dont know. but, he is going on tour with her, so the remix is gonna draw more peeps to the concerts due to the fact that macy and common both have collaborated on wax and now on stage.
