"change in attitude with qoolquest?"


  

          

is it me or does it seem that ?uest is on some new ish? when he used to reply to posts (even if they were stupid) he'd be all nice and answer questions and not come off as such a smart ass. now it seems like he being hostile and getting sick with all of us. is it me? i just read the post "was com dissing...." and qoolquest was antagonizing the post he responded to by saying "blah blah blah.....i used to h.e.r. pt3"
excuse us, quest, if we like to analyze every little thing about the okayartists. it's only 'cause we love 'em so much and we can't get enough.

peace. lagism OUT

since you didn't pose this directly to ?uest - I'll take a whack at it.

*he's on tour - jetlag is a mofo
*he's tired of being disrespected by people on this site who think they can talk to him any old way because they don't agree with him
*he's tired of haters who have nothing nice to say about anything
*he's tired of people complaining about the way he addresses things
*he's human

Just a thought.

people come on here and think that just because they have an opinion, the whole world wants to know about it. quest has an incredibly hectic schedule and STILL finds the time everyday to try and address every question he can on the boards. now tell me this.. you want him to reply kindly to everything when the same questions are posted over and over and people can't read the archives? what about when someone disses something he's spent a lot of time working on, (i.e., shows, albums, reviews, the diary, etc.)? how would you like it if your EVERY move was critiqued? his work is like his child.. and if it was me and someone was insulting my child, i'd definitely come back strong. most of the time, he's too easy on people anyhow. now i'm not saying you have to agree with him all the time..or any of the time. hell, you could HATE his music, for all i care.. but there is something called respect. and tact. you could say.. "you know, i really don't think that this song is good for so and so reasons.." vs. "questlove is WACK." everyone around here knows that quest is always down for a good music debate/discussion, as long as its brought along in the right fashion.

how many artists do you know that take their fans out for meals, games of lazer tag, shows, etc.?

give me 5 other hip-hop artist sites where you can interact with the artists EVERYDAY like you do here. bet you can't. i've never known a site like okayplayer and i've been on the internet a LONG time.

how many artists like to sit in a chat at 6am when they could be sleeping because they just love the people that come to their site and want to interact?

he's not perfect..and he does not claim to be. he is just human..so why don't you start treating him as one with some basic respect? he's a pretty fair guy when you give him the chance, instead of smothering him with insults, disses, cheap shots, and critiques.

peace and blessings,
maria.

Word, Maria. Folks be running up and just saying shit to get a reaction (like el duque here and bighizzy (man that was just so cashmoney)).

Listen if we were to say, "Yo, you ruined Common's album"..."Yall are just full of yourselves"...Come with some good reasons and LEARN TO WORD YOUR OPINIONS BETTER. However if you're doing it just to get a rise, yall are corny and if you get cursed out, good for ya crab ass.

And Brother Ahmir, please stop falling for the traps these people set for you. Folks are jerking off to the idea of going head to head with ?uestlove. Sometimes you gotta act like the last song on the Jazzyfatnastees first (released) album...(and for the Model T drivers, that's Let It Go...)

"he's a pretty fair guy when you give him the chance, instead of smothering him with insults, disses, cheap shots, and critiques."

-dude is fair as shit. there is no way in hell y'all would h8 on me like this. you'd be foolin' yourself to think you could. i mean, his niceness is borderline sickening. i was happy as shit when i saw his final opus, cause it wasn't like he was pissed, nor did he seem rattled, he was just on some "this is what i said would happen" shit.

also has the common decency to read your shit instead of skimming you. also will adress you publicly or privately. something heads need to take heed on. also goes BEYOND THE FUCKIN' OKAYARTIST BOARD, which we know has become the vast wasteland of phallic coddling and highschool kids with straight edge rulers tryin' to prove who's got the biggest schlong.

in parting, quest can be described just like the rest of us - "good days, bad days, halfway days" - you know, from one of those shitty albums with mumbled lyrics and horrible production and poor sequencing, and not enough glossy paper nor clothing on the nipple blah blah blah blah bl...

Tell him. She's right, Quest is like no other. Really. I personally did not have the oppurtunity of meetin quest. However, he is my fellow PhillyHead, and second his my fellow Okayplayer. Most Importantly, he takes time out for US, thats right US. Spending money on US to have fun playin games (laser tag) paying for tickets to shows, feeding US meals and ish. Name an artist that does stuff like that. I can't think of nobody. And if they do happen its b/c of a contest or somethig. "Win breakfast/lunch/dinner with such and such," "Win tickets to see such and such," and "Win the chance to meet such and such." That is some wack shit. You gotta be in a contest just to meet somebody who is human just like you. Wha, that don't sound right. So look at them mofo who are "too" important to speak and meet. That's All I Got To Say........pissed me off for a sec. But im back now

that's funny i was thinking the opposite.

it seems to me that he was calming down some.

atleast he gave me respect with that "i tried to hold back post" usually he tries to be little my oppinion and intellegence with a "yawn" or something but this time around he actually gave me a respectable response.

me and Starli were talkin about this earlier today...?uest is usually one of two things. 1) the nicest guy in the world or 2) the biggest smartass in the world. and that's perfectly fine. He used to only show the nice guy part but yeah, I guess he's being more of a smartass recently. I personally love it. I live for sarcastic ass comments. But seriously, let him be him. I'm a sarcastic bastard all the time, and I can at times be a pretty nice guy, but most of y'all don't give a flying fuck if I'm a sarcastic bastard (or keep it locked up inside you if it bothers you). Do the same for Quest. Let him be the sarcastic ass that he feels like being...you jackass!

25. "RE: change in attitude with qoolquest?"
In response to Reply # 0


  

          

alright, the original post that i made was not meant to be an absolute criticism and put down of quest. it was merely an observation about a supposed change in attitude of quest. i understand that he's touring with d'ang and he's doing this and that with other artists, but it seemed like before (even when touring with the roots and working on d'ang's and com's albums) he still would be considerate (and i imagine he had bad days then). please don't take what i'm saying now or what i said in the original post as something negative, but as something that i'd like to hear thoughts upon. a personal attack on quest was neither my want nor my intention. my mistake if i made it seem that way. just wanted to clarify for all y'all that thought i was hatin'.
