no transcript.<P>someone forgot. oooooh!<P>He doesn't like Q-Tip's new album. Said Q-Tip doesn't sound comfortable.<P>Said no one wants to battle him and everyone he's battled he's destroyed.<P>Said he hates when okayplayers run up on him and be all up under him because they post to okayplayers. It's not all of them, but a few who run up on him calling him by his "gov't name" like "Hey, Tariq Trotter..." and be real annoying.<P>He's listening to the new "Prince" joint.<P>He kicked a sister names Eartgod out the chat and said he was about to kick Spirit out. <P>Peril-L from the MBs came in and Thought told him, somewhat-jokingly, to stop trying to get props off of him. <P>Someone who was not from the US asked if he smoked Phillies, he said "No, I smoke people from other countries who ask stupid questions on the website."<P>He said it's tricky dealing with women to know if they want him for him.<P>He doesn't hate Organix.<P>Lazy Afternoon wasn't wack. It served its purpose.<P>He doesn't wear "perfume".<P>That's all I remember. And that he enjoyed it and was very much his regular old self. He was smiling during almost the whole thing. See update photo.<P>HTH!<P>angieee ('stress)<P>Buy my book. You got a year to save up for it.

hit him off with the 1st question (never been 1st for ANYTHING before).....I asked him what he thought of ghostwritting to which he replied it's cool if it is tastefully done....then all the heads figured out what room he was in and that was the end of my one-on-one interview <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/happy.gif"> I did get to squeeze 1 more question at him....I asked what is was like workin w/Kobe Bryant to which he replied that he never met him (Kobe's manager is a childhood friend of Thought's)...and the next part of that ? (do u think Kobe has any skills on the mic), Thought said (the funniest thing of the night) "He's alright as far as basketball players go." (lol).....but it did get kinda crazy in there after a while so I just stepped aside and started chattin w/the regular chat heads in another room....btw, I tried to liven things up a lil by askin Newguy a question (He thinks Philly's "aiight")......<P><P><BR>________________________________________<BR>"Of course that's just my opinion, I could be wrong" -Dennis Miller<P>***proud member of T.O.P.A.*** <P>KD215877 on AOL/Compuserve<P>Where will YOU be Memorial Day Weekend???<BR><a href="http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Stands/7507/reunion2.html" target="_blank">http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/Stands/7507/reunion2.html<;/a>

<BR>>He kicked a sister names Eartgod out <BR>>the chat and said he was <BR>>about to kick Spirit out. <P>I'm still trying to figure that one out. Quest secret messaged me talking about "why you talking about that bullshit, that's why none of the okayartists come on the site" then didn't want to explain what "bullshit" he was talking about. I asked straight up questions: will you sing on your solo joint, who does beats on the solo joint, how much of the roots material is freestyled, etc. so why did he want to kick me off? Hell, I was even defending the guy from a bunch of attacks from earthgod or whatever his/her name was.<P>This leads all the way back to Improv saying "I better stop before I get accused of pulling a Spirit".

I mean, wtf? <P>Damn you still on that? *sigh*<P>I can't talk for ?uest, but I will speak for me...for the late comers, what Spirit is talking about was what I said in the Wack Roots songs thread that was here MONTHS ago. Folks was saying "What was that annoying noise Improv's baby was saying on 'I Remain Calm'" and "The chorus of 'The Session' was corny". So I answered the questions. I found it amusing that the way I answered it was just the way Spirit would answer it. So the comment I made is the comment I made.<P>Spirit, understand that this is/was not a personal attack. But, brother, you gotta admit...sometimes you do come off as a dick...sorry I can't think of another word...ok scratch that...Arrogant and all-knowing. That's the impression you give off. You have this habit of always playing folks as if they are stupid. Believe me, there are plenty of folks that feel that way and REALLY don't like it. You may have some valid points, but there is a way of SAYING it without looking like a dic...pardon...arrogant. Understandable you're trying to be a lawyer yadda yadda yadda, but you're not in court, brother. And it feels that you put people on the stand.

And I ain't "gotta" admit a thing. People may be reading something into what I write, but I'm just an ordinary guy who writes what he feels. If YOU think that's coming off like a "dick", that's YOUR personal hang-up. And, also, you should have stepped to me when you first noticed this, not mentioned it in some sly sideways kind of way. I'm honest and straight up. If I see a post and feel you're playing yourself, I'm gonna let you know. Too bad everyone can't be honest. If you stepped to me and asked me to clarify anything I've said, you might just find out that what I said wasn't what you THOUGHT I meant...<P>>sorry I can't think of <BR>>another word...ok scratch that...Arrogant and >all-knowing. <P>It's clear at this point that you do not know me at all.

For what? Ever heard of ignoring someone and basically that's what I did for all that time. And if you remember, there was a <img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/happy.gif"> at the end of that comment, but oh well...<P>People do have names, but you think I'M going to tell you them? For what? True that they could have said something, but once again they IGNORED you. You think people aren't talking about anyone else? Let's be real about it.<P>ONCE AGAIN...IT WAS NOT A PERSONAL ATTACK. I just stated MY OPINION (I think I said that in the beginning "...I will speak for me"). You're right. I do not know you. You do not know me. I'm fine with that. I'm cool with that. Once again I gave off my OPINION of what I perceived you as and perception is a bitch. If my perception of you is wrong, it's wrong until someone makes it right.<P>And for the record, I was in the chat room and I personally didn't see any reason for ?uest to say that to you.

Just sent you an e-mail...<P>Only one correction on my part.

In response to Reply # 24


  

          

Unfortunately I was not here for the Thought chat (been busy wit school.I missed y'all,Family). However, I wish I was because it sounds like Spirit needed a Bigmomma Hug. Yo Spirit, relax man. Don't take things people say so personally and so seriously. Everyone has a bad day sometimes. By the same token, it is never okay to insult or belittle anyone! <P>I have had the opportunity to meet Thought a few times on tour here in Cali, and he was very easy going and polite. He had decent conversation and seemed to be a pretty well balance brother. I'm not excusing any way that he may have insulted anyone in chat,(especially the okayplayer from overseas)but I am sure that his intent was not malicious.<P> Okayplayers, we need to look out for each other and show love. I have made some great friends here and I want all of us to STAY friends. So please, NO MORE OKAYATTACKS!<P>Okayartists, you need to understand that your fans love you and have supported you. As a singer/musician myself, I know that your fans are your bread and butter and if you offend and or attack them, they will stop supporting you and tell others not to. Please show us the love that we have continually shown you....<P>CAN'T WE ALL JUST GET ALONG!!!!!<P>"THE MORE MAN SMOKE HERB, THE MORE BABYLON FALL"(???) ROBERT NESTA MARLEY<BR>(hope I got that qoute right,lol)

<P>I wasn't there, but...<P>>Someone who was not from the US <BR>>asked if he smoked Phillies, he <BR>>said "No, I smoke people from <BR>>other countries who ask stupid questions <BR>>on the website."<P>Doesn't surprise me...that's a good way to treat you fans..I sure hope he was being sarcastic..<P>>He said it's tricky dealing with women <BR>>to know if they want him <BR>>for him. <P>The way I see it is who would want to hang with a negative person anyway...not him for him....him for the guy who sits on the side of the stage while you're clowning with the rest of his crew...with this damn negative energy protruding from every vein...<P>Now, I'm not getting on BT (wouldn't want to slip and call him by his "gov't" name) ..it's just really sad to hear everyone sayin' how harsh he was during the chat...<P>and then after a show where you felt like he had fun on stage, and he's had mad energy up there...he bums around like he HAD to do it...whatever yo...I thought you were on some "if it's artificial let it be.." <P>that's what i did..let it be...<P>When we gonna see the real cool guys around here, like Scratch and Hub and Mal Dogg..<P><P><BR>>That's all I remember.

...I only remember two of the questions I asked. I asked what was his favorite spot to play in Europe, and he said Paradiso in Amsterdam (hence the question about the "perfume" he was wearing in Amsterdam). Then I asked what kind of video would have been made for "Love of My Life" if the money was available, and he said "I don't know." Just thought I'd add my remembrances...

One ? people left out was the one I asked him about us being at his shows all the time.."Do you get annoyed with us screaming OKAYPLAYER at your shows? he replied "fucking yes.I only like it when I ask for it" That was just something I had to ask after being at the new years day show when he made a COMMENt about us. I can see how it can get annoying but he should understand that it's just the way that we represent and it's all for the web site. But all in all it was a good chat and I had fun being there and ?uest was crackin me up when he was effin with thought

I'm simply one of the most loyal fans of Blackthought. From what I've seen written about him on the chat, it seems unclear to me wether he's being condemned or praised. Lyrically, I believe he's a living Matyr, but according to what I see written about him he's got a pretty short temper. Maybe I'm stupid or wuteva, I continue to look up to him. At one point I was sort of obsessed with him, I wanted to meet him badly, but after 3yrs of dissappointments (I couldn't and have not made any of their concerts),I've learned to obsess on the knowledge he relays and his lyrical prowess and not him.He's only man. To be <BR>able to diffuse knowledge out of a wise man is to be able to isolate the fact that he is man and is succeptible to moodswings, attitudes, and everything humane. My point is fuck the fact that you got dissed or whatever, focus on what he's doing for you as an artist and not how you see him as an artist. Ya understand?!! I hate this computer I'm on cuz it's wack, but I will depart on the note that I look 4ward 2 hearing his solo albumn. Like I said, Lyrically, Blackthought is my personal greatest oif all time. I think all the heads on here who claim or at least front like they're so real need to take a reality check....("The hyp--no--tic, the hypnotic c'mmon...")<P>Peace...<BR>Oluwafifehan Osikanlu <P>PS> (Oluwafifehan means, "God showed love unto me who was wed/born into the family of Osikanlu",Osikanlu means, "The king who we all praise and look up to betwixt us"...... My point is, IT'S NOT A GOVT. NAME.)<P>Praise to all who understand and not to the believers. vulnerabitlity is not a virtue. <P>Praise to all who chose to understand and ask questions. <BR>

You know what, I can accept that we all have bad days, but hey, I don't put myself in situations where I might offend and hurt others on those bad days. As an emcee, you need to except the fact that people do admire and respect you (like yourself) and in return, you need to respect them...that's all, I never asked thought to lick my ass clean, but dayumn if I wanted a simple "hey, How are you doin'?, I'm glad you enjoyed the show,it's nice to meet you.."<P> I don't give a fuck about TV, Radio and movies, celebrities aren't nothing but me and you...They good peoples, they good peoples..that's all there is to it....But have you seen how ?uest acts around he...he jokes, and people catch that ('cause those that know me, know that I love to be sarcarstic...but I wasn't catching sarcastic vibes from BT's responses)..Quest throws out mad knowledge, even to simple questions, he truly gives a fuck about his fans, and he puts those that DESERVE it, in their place. <P>Hey bonamie..I'll fight you for scratch<img src="http://www.okayplayer.com/dcforum/Images/happy.gif"><P>funny thing is though, he didn't believe my name was kyle, he was like "no for real"...I totally forgot that his was too!...That would be odd, kyle and kyle...ok, I guess you can have him on count of a name...<P>much love,<BR>Kyle

In response to Reply # 22


          

I dont know Black Thought personally, but i know people often take the same approach to my comments. I think it would be ridiculous to assume Black Thought was trying to beef wit people who support him. Its just that whats funny or humorous to this man may be shocking or offensive to those who dont understand it. If you look at every comment that you people have posted that Thoguht supposedly made, you will see that they could all be takin as jokes. And that added to the fact that Angie said he was smiling the whole time, i doubt he was beefin.<P>I would put money on it, that its just his sense of humor, and you cats are on some baby-powder shit, or just wanna cause discussion.<P>If i'm wrong, let Black Thought tell me, i dont wanna hear anymore of this "Black Thought mistreats his fans crap" maybe he is being himself and sayin what comes to his mind. If you cant deal with a man's humor, just play the CD's and stop tryin to chat with him.<P><BR>Sheldon Mar"Quez" Rankin<BR><a href="http://www.sheldon.bored.org" target="_blank">http://www.sheldon.bored.org<;/a><P>"oh lawd Quez is here, okayplayer will never be the same" ---- some wise man<P>"The truth is, my crew is, the smoothest spitters of saliva juices like The Roots is, More Organic than acoustics" ---- Talib Kweli<P>"No need to mic test, you can feel it in ya chest... yo BEYAAAAATCH, feel it in her breasts" - Common

that's pretty much what I said...I can see how they all could be jokes...but some people can be offended by it...yeah..I don't care what he says I'll still listen to him.., but you must ask yourself, where do these artist belong in society?...should they be role models? should they carry themselves as they normally do, and not be held up to higher standards? Treated differently?...Should the sing about things they don't truly live and support?<P>Sometimes we forget that people really look up to artist, especially the younger generation. If they don't have strong individuals in their lives (be it parents,teachers,sisters,etc..) they look up to the famous....that's all, I think sometimes artists need to remember that shit.<P>If he was joking...great..senses of humor come in all shapes and sizes...but wait till you see him after a show...I don't want to be around or talk to someone with negative vibes, that the bottom line...hopefully, he's usually nicer, and I saw him on a bad night...whatever...<P>I still just want to know when scratch,hub, and kamal are gonna be on here!!!<P>peace<BR>Kyle

In response to Reply # 28


          

but if I ever do, he better not fake it. If he dont feel like talkin to my ass, then he should just let a nigga know. Some people just wanna do thier music and be void of all the "celebrity" and "fame" consequences. I would respect a man who told me, "listen, i aint feelin this shit tonight" rather than smile and talk trash later. Maybe he's just "keepin it real" to himself. Maybe he is really an asshole and dont give a what! Either way, we are all here as a result of the music, not great humanitarian acts by these artists. So deal wit it.<P>Sheldon Mar"Quez" Rankin<BR><a href="http://www.sheldon.bored.org" target="_blank">http://www.sheldon.bored.org<;/a><P>"oh lawd Quez is here, okayplayer will never be the same" ---- some wise man<P>"The truth is, my crew is, the smoothest spitters of saliva juices like The Roots is, More Organic than acoustics" ---- Talib Kweli<P>"No need to mic test, you can feel it in ya chest... yo BEYAAAAATCH, feel it in her breasts" - Common

31. "nobody really knows......."
In response to Reply # 30


  

          

I've been reading everyone's posts about the BT chat and it seems as if half the people are upset that he was being sarcastic and/or ignorant, and the other half are defending him by saying that he was just kidding and amusing himself. Well the truth is that no one in the chat knows for sure and it doesn't really make sense to try to psycho-analyze him and his statements. You can't honestly know someone based on words you have read. Now I wasn't in the chatroom that night so I don't know the context of any of it. But I can say that I met BT at the Black Lily show about a month ago and he was totally cool. I had a brief conversation with him about the New Year's show, his solo album and the next Philly show. He didn't come off as being arrogant and actually didn't seem to mind spending a minute to talk to a fan. That same night I spoke with ?uest and he was just as cool. <BR>So I guess what I'm saying is you can't judge somebody by comments you read in an online chat without actually meeting them in person. If everyboby met BT individually, my guess is that he would treat each person with respect.<BR>At least that's how he came off to me.<BR>Peace,<BR>McBride.
