"Prince takes shot at D'angelo??"


  

          

On the npg website Prince says......... "UNDISPUTED" just received an update, and at presstime contains a new oxymoron that speaks 2 "bruthas who claim my back, when they frontin!" <P>Do you think he is taking shots at D'angelo?? Im just curious because this sounds like another paranoid prince statement. What you think? Let also remember he called Wendy And lisa...."<BR>Lendy and Lisa" on his website...as some childish way to say they didnt do much on his projects. So what you think Quest and D is Prince changin undisputed because what was misinterpeted in the liner notes of Voodoo?? Looking at princes track record I would say it is a good guess

first them hundred dollar tickets and now this.<P>what did it say in d'angelo's liner notes?<P>if he did dis prince that was the biggest mistake he could ever make in his life. he should be lucky prince didn't write him off from the beginning for being too influenced by prince's vocal arrangements. long live prince down with dumb'angelo! (i'm rediculous. excuse me.)<P>-naeem j. (biased. prince is the first performer i ever looked up to. and my favorite artist of all time)

In response to Reply # 13


          

Here's my all time favorite list:<P>1. Stevie Wonder<BR>2. Prince.......<P>I understand the Purple Rain Prince, I understand the Emancipation Prince, I understand the Batman Prince, I Understand! I don't compare Prince and D'angelo cause Prince is about 25 years deep. Plus, it's a non-entity to even unfairly compare the two. But, D'angelo is worth $100 to me. And he's not getting $100 of the money anyway. If the price is too tight for you that's a different story.<P>BLING!

In response to Reply # 7


          

FIRST OF ALL I DONT THINK D'ANG WOULD DIS PRINCE ON ANY LEVEL, AND IF YOU ARE A TRUE PRINCE FAN YOU WOULD KNOW THAT ALL OF D'S CUTZ, ON HIS NEW ALBUM HAS SOME FORMAT FROM ONE OF PRINCES'S SONGS.WITH THE EXECEPTION OF THE CUT D GOT WIT RED MAN. I CAN GIVE YOU AND EXAMPLE OF EVERY SONG THAT PRINCE DID THATS ON D ALBUM. SO THAT WOULD BE PRETTY DUMB OF D'ANG TO DIS.NOW AS FAR AS PRINCE BEING THE GREATIST ARTIST OF ALL TIME IS YET TO BE DESIRED I'M A PRINCE FAN AND HE IS VERY TALENTED BUT HE NEVER REACHED THE MASS'S AS OTHER ARTIST HAVE SO BY NO MEANS IS HE THE GREATEST OF ALL TIMES. BUT HE STILL MY DAWG THOUGH<P>THE ALL MIGHT DJ SLASSSH<BR>

In response to Reply # 52


  

          

No idea why you said Prince never reached the masses, because he sold a HELLUVA lot of records in the 80s (and still went platinum with his last joint, I believe). Still, even he never did reach "the masses", that has nothing to do with his greatness as an artist...perfect example: Hendrix might not have had a record that sold as much as Puffy's first LP while Jimi was alive (although he sold a helluva lot of records post mortem), but who's the greater artist?<P>Spread love,<P>Spirit<BR><a href="http://amphibians.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://amphibians.iuma.com<;/a><BR>www.soul-sessions.com<BR>Hip-hop forever...power to the people<P>R.I.P.

Now I wonder which of his personalities he was sporting that night. Was he 'Prince", "the Artist" or "the Ego formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince?" Either way, that ain't right! Is this what fame does to people? Make em feel like they are above and beyond groovin to the concert of the year along with the rest of the peons . . . um, I mean fans?<P>I mean, c'mon now. Show some love. He already shouted out D & ?uest on his latest album, why not see the show? Well, I can't say that I know what goes on in the man's head. I will say that it sounds like he missed a hellova show!<P>love and respect,<BR>El Rey<P>"I prefer to speak of the impossible, because we already know too much about what is possible" Silvio Rodriguez<P>"If our profanity offends you, look around you and see how destructively society is profaning itself.

55. "Why Prince needed a table"
In response to Reply # 37


  

          

You really think Prince could have enjoyed the concert 'with the rest of the fans"????? Come on now, if Prince was just in the audience, he would have been constantly asked for autographs and stuff like that....he never would have gotten to see the show! Of course he wanted a private table! Do you really think Prince could sit in a concert with ordinary folks and not get asked every 2 minutes for an autograph or have people ask him questions about his music? He wanted a private place where he could enjoy the show in peace. He couldn't find it, so he bounced. Makes perfect sense to me.<P>Spread love,<P>Spirit<BR><a href="http://amphibians.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://amphibians.iuma.com<;/a><BR>www.soul-sessions.com<BR>Hip-hop forever...power to the people<P>R.I.P.

what ever prince believes is allright with me. if he don't like d'angelo-fuck a d'angelo- if he don't like questlove-fuck a-no i can't say that we need quest.<P>but i'm saying prince is awsome and very intelegent. childish? i don't think so. he is just misunderstood because he don't put his buisness out in the streets.

The Root is a beautiful song. D'Angelo is an incredible artist. <BR>The Artist is the man. However, just because you respect someone's artistry and hols them in high regard, that doesn't mean you have to love every single thing about them.

Im just curious because <BR>>this sounds like another paranoid prince <BR>>statement. What you think? Let also <BR>>remember he called Wendy And lisa...." <BR>>Lendy and Lisa" on his website...as <BR>>some childish way to say they <BR>>didnt do much on his projects. <BR>>So what you think Quest and <BR>>D is Prince changin undisputed because <BR>>what was misinterpeted in the liner <BR>>notes of Voodoo?? Looking at princes <BR>>track record I would say it <BR>>is a good guess <P>There is absolutely no indication that Prince refers to D'Angelo in this statement. P loves D'Angelo and his music. I think you're only purpose for posting this drivel is to start a flame war against Prince, because you obviously have some sort of attitude problem against him, (I've read your previous posts about him) and it is very clear that you're making an attempt instigate hostility against him with D'Angelo fans. If anything, the statement Prince made in the website maybe talking about Clive DAvis. <BR> Why don't you find something else better to do with your time other than try to dog Prince all the time? Ok, so we already know, you hate him, that's fine. How many other DIFFERENT ways are you going to prove that to us? Just get the hell off it, man, you're attempts at dogging Prince are old and TIRED..<P><BR>

Im sorry to say but im not dogging prince I want to know what "bruthas" hes referring to. Once again you are wrong. I dont dog prince Im asking a legitimate question.

DO some research before you attack me of doggin somebody. IT was a question relax and take your quaylude. Something tells me you post on amp.

In response to Reply # 10


          

D and P have PRAISED each other to the hilt in NUMEROUS interviews, Prince's recent interview with Black Beat he talks about D and how bad (meaning good) he is. So there is absolutely NO FOUNDATION for your assumption. And what's more, is: you KNOW it...you're just trying to start mess, that's all. You know DAMNED well how much they admire each other. However, nothing would make you happier than to see P diss D'Angelo so you could have an excuse to come in here and type Prince disses all damn day.<P><BR>See, Jefflee, this is EXACTLY what I'm talking about..you've made a stupid assumption based on minimal facts, and NOW looked what you've done! You've gotten people all upset...I hope you're happy...and for your information, NO I DO NOT post on AMP...but YOU need to, since you're always dogging Prince all the time. I just get so damned sick and tired of people looking for EXCUSES to dog Prince all the time..mere EXCUSES...<P>Thank you.<P>"U eva seen a black man play guitar wit' no clothes on???" 'Prince

but I've always considered "Untitled" a battle song with Prince! Face it gang, Prince hasn't been himself since Batman. I absolutely thought Prince was the shit until (and including) Sign of the Times, but his decline has been slow and steedy. I like'd a few songs in the 90's but he didn't drop one classic album in the past decade. This is just my opinion, but I'm sticking to it! <P>To me, Prince personified FUNK in the early 80's, but now his ish DO STINK. On the other had, D is FUNK personified NOW. To me, Untitled was a love song to FUNK. Prince has/had her, but she ain't happy with ass no more and D is trying to steal her. Maybe D stole her already and he's asking Prince "How does it feel?" seeing her with someone who is the funkiest brotha out now?<P>Look Players, Funk is like the Heavywieght Championship belt. I can trace it back to James Brown and his band. When Bootsie left James and joined George Clinton, George held the belt. Prince took it from George, but he lost it somewhere in the late 80's. The Red Hot Chili Peppers had it for a small while in the early 90's (with a little help from George, don't sleep!), but the title had been vacant until D took it over with Brown Sugar. D is now the reigning champ! Prince should want his title back, but D's got a tight grip on in now that Vodoo dropped.<P>Can you follow me?<P>Peace<P>Pseudonym-less Wendell

Peace

Telling me what my motives are. YOU dont know anything about me NADA. How could you act so ignorant?? He put this up on his website I SAID this because...I wanted to know what was going on with changing undisputed?? THERE is nothing wrong with telling the players who want to know. ANd then quest says Prince left because they didnt..have a private table for him. LOOK his website is cryptic...and prince would take offense to anybody who doesnt see his view and he isnt all nice to everybody he blasts people who helped him like Clive Davis. This is what I hate about fans like you. You get all worked up with no facts just accusing somebody who is bringin somethin up. Im proposing a question...and what quest told me...seems to be a reason why he would change it. IM not here to diss somebody you are wrong ONCE again. Im here to understand what this news update means and who he is talking about. THATS it...my intention is not to get anyone mad over prince and D'angelo/ But you need to wake up anyone who expresses their thoughts on a widely viewed website needs to realize the misinterpetation that could take place. I want to know who hes talking about. Its no diss to anybody. Once again get your story straight.... IM not hating on anyone.

IF I hated prince and wanted to flame him I could just go to prince.org and get somebody who is the king at that. For me to go to his website every week and check out the news updates...is proving I am a fan. But where Prince is failing is exactly what I was pointing out "the miscommunicating with the fans". The reason I said undisputed is because he mentions quest and d'angelo in a shout out but now it says on the update he is changing it a bit. THIS is why I bring this up I wanted to know whats up with Quest and D'angelo. ANd now I have found out because quest explained a situation that might explain why hes changin undisputed. SO I have got my explanation do me a favor and go get crabby with someone else. Its so childish.

This website I go to it says he is going to get more clearer with the people and the music. I want to know who those "bruthas that are frontin" are. Because...it seems to me if you post somethin like that in a news section...thats fair question.... Anyways Im sure the prince fans will pick up on this statement and wonder who the bruthas are.

WELL, I suppose that statement in his website is just CHOCK FULL of facts proving that Prince is hating on D'Angelo, isnt' there? ISN'T THERE? Let me tell you something. There is absolutely NOTHING even REMOTELY suggesting in this statement that he's talking about D'Angelo. NONE. And you know it. <P>That thing you're talking about misinterpretation is just an excuse for YOU to READ something into a passage that's NOT THERE, okay? Don't give me that B.S. You're the one who's being childish. And for your information, I was one of the biggest Prince naysayers IN AMP and ORG for a while. The only difference between 'FANS LIKE ME' and fans like YOU is, I know when to be objective and give people the benefit of the doubt. YOU, on the other hand, want to READ something into everything and USE it as an excuse to attack The Artist. <P>You said you're trying to give the okplayers what they wanna read? WHAT are they gonna read from this? There's NOTHING THERE to suggest anything bad about D'Angelo. NONE. YOu're trying to start a flame war, plain and simple. I wasn't born yesterday. I know an attempt at starting a flame war when I read one. You know why? I DID IT ALL THE TIME. I was very good at it. Until I grew up and realized that it's stupid and childish to do so. I suggest you do the same. SO WHAT Prince left somewhere because he didn't get a seat he wanted. Do you know how long he's been doing stuff like that? waaaaay before he met D, let me tell you. That's not proof that he's dissing D at all. You just want it to be. Because nothing would you make you happier.<P>This is all I'm going to say on this, and this is, I personally, dont give a damn what you say about P, but if you're gonna critisize him, make you have some CONCRETE facts to back it up. Don't make STUPID assumptions based on vague statements or references.

39. "No you hold up"
In response to Reply # 38


  

          

I dont need to justify myself to anyone. Its not a flame. Its not a stupid question. YOU are assuming its a flame but once again you are wrong. I dont post everything prince related that is gossip. YOU have never been more wrong in your life. And I didnt take the lame way and assume what kind of person I am . just because I asked a question that was on my mind. You need alot more manners before you even address me. YOU also need to know if it was a flame it would be worded differently. Do me a favor stop replying to my threads and being self righteous thinkin you have all the answers to why I post prince related subjects. Because you dont know you assume just like anyone who attacks me by a statement. You are the one who turned this to be a flame on me. Are you that insecure with a question? Get over yourself and stop thinkin you know what a flame is. Because it wasnt even one by a longshot. I am so done with talking to a ignorant close minded person who thinks she knows what my motives are. Learn some respect in expressing a opinion on a board to others.

The very fact that you're getting so defensive proves that I'm right. <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/happy.gif"> End of discussion.

48. "Actually No it proves nothing"
In response to Reply # 41


  

          

Where is the proof? I questioned something and you took it to mean something else. But its not surprising to me. So far you are scoring O-O in proving anything about me. You are the one who brought up your silly asumptions about me. My assumption was a question regarded what I read off a board. Nothing more nothing less Pick another okayplayer to bitch at. This is silly. You are a rather humorous lady who has no clue to anything I post. YOU blew everything out of proportion over a question and had to result to badmouthing somebody. THATS class I say....

56. "I don't understand your logic"
In response to Reply # 26


  

          

You say that Quest's comment that Prince left b/c he didn't have a private table supports your theory that P may be dissing D? How? I don't understand at all. If anything, like I posted earlier, P probably wanted a private table so he could enjoy D's show w/o P fans walking up to every 2 minutes trying to strike up a convo.<P>Spread love,<P>Spirit<BR><a href="http://amphibians.iuma.com" target="_blank">http://amphibians.iuma.com<;/a><BR>www.soul-sessions.com<BR>Hip-hop forever...power to the people<P>R.I.P.

40. "good thing we have quest..."
In response to Reply # 34


          

good thing we have quest to set things straight. i understand prince's relationship with d'angelo and brother question now. it seems that prince was inspired by their work on the voodoo album, and in return quest and d were pleased that someone who they looked up to for many of years recognized their talent. <P>there can't be any beef between them. then again you never know with prince. but i love the fact that two of my biggest inspirations (prince and questlove) are seeing eye to eye. that gives me hope that my dream of being on npg records can come true.<P>-naeem j.

35. "I love Voodoo but"
In response to Reply # 31


          

The second CD of the Artist's Emancipation is as good as Voodoo. If he would have cut Emancipation down to about 16 songs that would have been a classic album.<P>The Artist still has it, he just hasn't been able to put it all on one mindblowing album.<P>Shaun G.

maybe it was saul's attempt to hit a "prince" nerve.but it's clear that d'angelo has an admiration and love for the music of prince and many other music greats.<BR>saul williams:"why it is that the ARTIST puts out half the shit he does (you know the half i'm talkin about) is because he lacks any new inspiration.once again an artist is faced with the reality of having to serve as their own inspiration after they have worn out all of their SLY,JIMI,MARVIN,STEVIE..."<P>"my rhymebook will be the next bible"-rakim

>>>>>watching the soul train music awards, i remember hearing prince's acceptance speech upon receiving the male lifetime music awards. <BR>>>>>>i had mixed feelings of what he was trying to say, but all i rememeber about it was during the speech, the camera focused for just a second, a cornrowed brother swaying a little with a big grin on his face.....chillin. <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/happy.gif"><P>"sometimes i look up at the stars and analyze the sky, and ask myself was i meant to be here...why."- ghostface killah<P>"ah wanted to preach a great sermon about colored women sittin' on high, but they wasn't no pulpit for me."- "their eyes....."- zora neale hurston

42. "Ain't no beef happenin..."
In response to Reply # 0


          

Hmmmm I just read all of the posts including the back and forth arguments, what ?uest said, and the other posts, And from what I've picked up I don't think there is no beef b/w them and if prince/the artist/ (same thing) had somethin to say about D'angelo he would have said it plainly because he doesn't strike me as the type to keep issues like that to himself..and If we really have to acutally try and read into somethin to "find out what or who he's talkin about" obviously there ain't nothin goin on think about it for a sec. And from what I've read I really doubt D' thinks Prince was trying to "take a shot at him" but thas just my opinion.. I'll just blow it off and other peeps should as well..everybody should just smile and make up <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/happy.gif"> there you go..lol..lata yah..keep the peace!!!<P>"He done worked a root..Deep, down in my soul, <BR>a sensual, spritual one that completes me as a whole"--Me (4 D' of course <P><P>

45. "Yeah um humm Ladycabdriver...."
In response to Reply # 0


          

Jeffleejohnson in no way after reading you're question about Prince's statement did i see anywhere that you wanted to initiate beef between the 3. What i did notice though after visiting "<a href="http://prince.org" target="_blank">http://prince.org<;/a>" was that Ladycabdriver takes it as a personal attack whenever someone says anything sarcastic about the Artist. I can understand getting pissed off to a point but really why be so sensitive? <BR>After reading her uncalled for verbal attack on urself i somehow seem to forget what her point is? Maybe her intentions is to clown you like she clowns some guy named Bart on Princes board. You see, you're probably her designated whipping boy."<img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/happy.gif">"

Dont think you're cute just bcuz u did a background check on me. I already KNOW how I am on the other boards. And if you knew Bart the way the rest of us at Prince.org do, you'd be clowning his ass too.

49. "Prince Praises D"
In response to Reply # 46


  

          

From prince.org and Black Beat Magazine:<P>"We want to just jam. I'm really getting into how people view creation. Like Sheryl and I just jammed for hours at Paisley Park. D'Angelo stands out so much today because he can really play. I mean, that brother can play; I've watched him. And Lenny too. He's bad. When Lauryn and Mary hold the microphone, it's like the real thing." <BR>

50. "I like D too but..."
In response to Reply # 49


  

          

You can't compare his two albums and various soundtrack contributions to Prince's 20 years of music. Nothing, and I mean nothing could top Sign O' the Times. Prince in his heyday could jump between musical styles so well that it would boggle your mind. Ballads: Adore, Pink Cashmere, International Lover, Scandalous, Insatiable, Do me Baby. Rock: I could never take the place of your man, Let's go Crazy, Electric Chair. Dance: Sexy MF, Gett Off, Private Joy, U got the Look. Funk: Anotherloverholeinyohead, The Ballad of Dorothy Parker, The Ride, Zannalee. Until D could do that I don't think you can compare him to Prince. He is a very good artist though. I enjoy both Brown Sugar and Voodoo. But ask yourself is either one of those albums better than Parade, Sign O' the Times, Emancipation disk 2, or the Gold Experience. It's all good though. No need for animosity for whichever one you like. Thanx for your time. You guys can get back to you flame war now.

53. "Let's Just Drop It !!!!"
In response to Reply # 51


  

          

There's no beef, besides the Artist is a vegetarian. But really y'all, there's nothing but admiration. And he probably wanted a private table, so he can take in the show completely(you know, without the autograph seekers). So let's drop this. I do want to thank folks like Jeff for even engaging in this thought,cause I too had ponder what he (Jeff) was thinking. But that changed when I read the Black Beat interview. So Jeff, keep doing yo' thing. Peace and soul music.
