"New OkayArtist Votes..."


          

With the addition of Dialated, R.E, and Pharohe (coming) as Offical Okayartists we have to take vote on the next one.

The next one doesnt have to be anytime soon but the important thing is who?

My votes would go to BAHAMADIA or ERYKAH BADU or both. Honorable mentions to LUCY PEARL, SAUKRATES, LES NUBIANS, BILAL, and PLANET A.S.I.A.

a poem 4 fire - recited by jamal, ya'll

I learned the contours of her body much like a familiar street corner....
So nevermind........
Entering the local bodega frequently, often forgetting why I was "coming"....
The door loosened..ajar with wind-blown emotions that never seem to stay long enough...
I remain devoted to exiting sites fo carelessly cramped shelves...
Becoming a consumer unlike myself rooted in wastefulness....
My love for her in high-priced pools of lust would reflect...
My new intent is bargain hunting for intellect.....

These damn okay symbols!!!

Actually, I don't think Improv has ever even been to the okay office.We act like we're not here whenever he shows up.

No one likes moderators. (Really, though...he's never been here. He volunteers his time from home and I think he steals time from his job to do this)

But seriously, unless you see a post from me or Shawn Gee, consider it not true...and I don't know nothing abut Pharoah joining okayplayer.

I believe Improv was just playing around.

I posted something about this yesterday...if they want to keep it in the MCA family lets get down with Femi Kuti, Rahsaan Patterson or Melkey Sedeck. They all are nice, Femi being my fave...Badu, Blackalicious, Blackstar and any other artists starting with the letter B (LOL) also should be hooked up - peas

They need some serious webhelp cause that site has been down for a minute. At least a couple months... And everybody on Rawkus aint nice like that. But Wordworth (freestyle for DAYS) and A-butta are definately OkayPlayer material.

In response to Reply # 10


          

Word up!

Dead Prez is one I left off but should definitely, no questions asked, be included on this site.

And Iverson represents something lovely. Yall should at least send him a tee-shirt. On some Philly love type ish. Tell me you wouldn't love to see him rocking that in the post-game press conf after he just served somebody up for 50!

Peace,
Blue.

Oh, did I mention Bilal yet? Well, if I didn't, then BILAL!!!!!!!!!!!!!
But that's just my opinion. Not like I want to force it on anybody.
(By the way, if everybody doesn't vote for Bilal, I'm gonna have to hunt down each one of you and force you to listen to "Soul Sista" until you admit that he's the best damn RnB cat out there right now, besides, of course, D'.)

Blastin holes in the night til she bled sunshine. Breathe in, inhale vapors from bright stars that shine. Breathe out, weed smoke retrace the skyline.Yo don't the bass ride out like an ancient mating call.I can't take it y'all, I can feel the city breathin.Chest heavin, against the flesh of the evening.Sigh before we die like the last train leaving."--Black Star "Respiration"

No, it just clogs up the boards AND it's been posted several times already. Seeing the same topic pop up every single week in various threads IS against the guidelines.

Give the moderators a break. If you would read AND FOLLOW the guidelines, Steve wouldn't even have to say this.

39. "Mos Def, Slum Village, Andre..."
In response to Reply # 0


          

I don't understand why Mos Def is not already an Okayartist. This man is an intricate and integral part of everything that yall are trying to do. I mean my man spoke at the United Nations! I think it is essential that he be involved in something as innovative and revolutionary as Okayplayer. Slum V? I thought "The Roots and SV is the Family Tree/SV and the Roots be the Family Tree" So you tell me where they're at. I would love to see Kast as an okayartist. Yes they are that ill. But at least the more okay-friendly side of the group Andre should be included.

Very glad to see Reflection Eternal on the site now. Kweli could use the exposure to the brilliance he brings.

And I'm not the one for negativity but I feel I have to say that I don't feel the Nastees live up to the Okay creative standard. And although I think Pharaohe certainly makes hot records these days he doesn't quite belong here either. Just personal opinion. Open to attack.

Peace, One,
blue.

In response to Reply # 39


  

          

Probably cause he doesnt wanna be...

I mean Im sure brother ?uest pitched the question to him, in fact, i remember a mention of it in the D'Tour diary... so if he's not a member its cause he does not want to be a member. (I assume that being an okayartist is not free)

My votes? Yes?
-Mos Def-initely
-"SV and the Roots is the family tree"
-Dead Prez - Come on, they bigger than hiphop you want fire for the Okayactivist section? There you go.
-J5 - Heard the record? Nuff said. Chali 2na's my man. Cut Chemist? What can't that man do?
-Erykah - but of course
-"Kast keep it jumpin' like kangaroos"


My votes? No?
-Maxwell - seen it suggested and feel like he'd fit in better on silkysoftyplayer.com
-Company Flow - We can't have that garbage polluting up a site as beautiful as this. I didn't see anyone suggest Kool Keith or Eminem either. So let's be thankful for that.


My votes? Maybe?
-Lucy Pearl - We'll see.
-Bilal - I'm hearing good things.

Peace,
BTW

I mean without a doubt. The next Okayartist's need to be EsVee (Slum Village). You got D'Angelo, Common and ?uestlove givin these cats major props. Regardless of what alot of y'all think of EsVee, they are innovators, they are bring a new type of hiphop to the culture, just fun type rap shit. No hard to understand lyrical poems, just everyday shit. They get all 33 of my votes (cause I'm '33').

one.

aight, all those choices (well, most of them) r good and all, but i didn't hear no one talk about artist who already down w/ Okayplayer doing their thing on the regular. they should get sections first. i'm talkin about Kindred, Flo Brown, 3 7000 9, Jaguar & Jill Scott. people who already down w/ the crew and representing on a regular basis. if they don't get their own sections u could at least make black lily part of okayplayer.com i know they have their own website and all, but why not incorporate it into this site. i go 2 the black lily all the time at the wetlands in nyc and they constantly putting it down 4 the nyc crowd regularly. so they should get spots b4 anyone. after that, i wanna vote 4 Mos Def and Erykah Badu cuz they seem 2 b 'honorary' members already. that's about it really. i also don't think that okayplayer should get 2 cluttered. everybody can't b an okayplayer artist. that's one of the things i like about it now. i think if u included everyone it would lose some of the closeness that it has. i do however think u should include some people in the featured artists section. people like Slum Village, Dead Prez, N'Dambi, Maysa, Ledisi, Laurnea, etc. some people that r hot and along the same lines of what OKP's would b feeling. just don't ruin okayplayer.com by making everyone and they mamma an OkayArtist. just my thoughts.

I really would like to see Erykah Badu featured as a new artist. I mean, the Kedar site (www.kedar.com) has not been updated since 1998 - Damn! Her new site www.erykahbadu.net is great with flash... but I think the same thing will happen.
