"ya'll played the classics, thanks!!!!!!!!"


          

what up heads<BR>this is luke skywalkka, i just witnessed a dope ass concert in columbus, oh. i must tell you though i thought the concert i saw in cincinatti a few months ago was better, number one because my favorite emcee common was there, and number two i guess because it was the first time i actually saw yall in concert(with the exception of smokin grooves like two years ago), but back to the subject, i think there were some things i liked better second time around. number one would be the selection of songs this time, because last time you only played stuff from the new album, and i must say that "do you want more" was definately my fav. But i must give you mad props cause this time you played the classics, with the exception of "organix", things like silent treatment(by the way 'riq I was the one who asked for "silent treatment" not that you'll remember but anyways). anyways i thought the selection of songs was hella dope this time around, with the exception of the abscence of common, cause you know he just tops a Roots show off with his poetic presence!!!!!!!!!!!!<BR>thanks, <BR>luke sky

MORE THAN ORGANIX<BR>-ERYKAH IS A STAR IN HER OWN RIGHT, WHY WOULD YOU THINK SHE WILL SHOW UP TO SING 4 CHORUS'? DO YOU EXPECT PAUL MCCARTNEY TO SHOW UP TO M.

...for making it known that Tariq hates Organix... cuz, well... I dislike (I put "hate" at first, but then I got smart...) it too. Yes, it's true; please don't lynch me or try to drown me in a horrible round of swearing and ganging-uppings (is that a word?)...<BR>I dunno, I just like their new albums a lot better than the old ones. I feel as if Tariq's lyrical (pronounced lyricaal) abilities have really matured since illadelph and TFA has been my all-time favourite album. <BR>Don't front tho'... I love everything after Organix and that song "popcorn" or sumthin' wasn't bad... a'ight?!?!?!<BR>Plus, I'm an okayplayer fo' life son, and nuttin' y'all say or do can change that... Mr. Trotter will back me up on dis (and then I woke up...). Y'all watch out now y'hea? Ran out of thoughts fo' now... (lucky for YOU...)<P>Always rememba...<BR>"I chop rappers up like chicken <BR>Szechuan"<BR>* Black Thought - "Adrenaline"<P>=) before nosejob...<P>=) after..

Organix is the shit! It's my second most favorite roots CD and I have them all (including a gang of singles and the legendary and from the ground up). I can listen to that album over and over again without ever getting bored.<P>"never met anybody so cute and lovely and hard with his fists, and great with his dick"---Unidentified Okayplayette<P>"I got hair on my chest....LOOK AT IT!!!!!"---Redman <a href="http://www.angelfire.com/il/Will/images/MESOL1.jpg">http://www.angelfire.com/il/Will/images/MESOL1.jpg<;/a>

It's funny how Thought doesn't like the two things that made me a roots fan. When I got to Temple my freshman year this kid that lived next door to me just couldn't shut up about this hip hop band he loved that "repped Philly to the FULLEST" and kept playing this popcorn song. I finally gave it a listen and have been hooked!! Then a week before DYWM was available a DJ friend of mine had the vinyl and had me hooked on the album mostly on the strength of essaywhuman. <P>I'd love to hear some of the other tracks that you guys hate. Artist are funny that way. I am just as schocked about this as I am that Havoc hates Shook Ones.<P>MH - The acrobatic anachronist
