12. "my OKP boards origin story:"
In response to Reply # 2
Fri Feb-23-24 05:08 PM by PROMO

  

          

(i'll try to be brief)

i came to OKP because The Roots were booked for Bumbershoot (big music festival) in Seattle, Labor Day weekend 1999 (this is how i know i came in September 1999). went to see them and it was more like "The Roots"...it was Quest, Rahzel and i THINK Dice Raw so they couldn't really do Roots joints w/out Black Thought (story goes he was shooting Brooklyn Babylon and had to miss this gig) so we pretty much got Rahzel beat boxing for the better part of an hour. i mean, i love Rahzel but we were pissed.

so, my boy, who was an OKP but no longer posts and hasn't in probably 20 years, came to the boards to call the Roots out for playing their fans (i'm SURE Questlove remembers), and that's what got me to join the boards...to join in the call out cuz we were all pissed.

we took a lot of heat back then from people who were already on the boards (we did have some support from some OKPs but not a lot), but ultimately it worked out cuz Questlove and the guys did the right thing - they did a free show at DV8 by the Seattle Center, and we all got to go to that and the show was super FIRE (probably way better than what we would have got if everyone showed up originally).

anyways, been here ever since. i even remember my first post was from the computer lab in Terry/Lander Hall at U of Washington.

Amazing. The world has changed so much since the site first started and it's still here. Despite the craziness and things quieting down a bit, this site remains a testament to inspiration, conversation, and debate. A few have started here and went on to do bigger and greater things; others are currently on that path. May this site continue to push those forward on their journey.
If not, then at least provide the onlookers comedy with all the drama.

Still here 20 years later. Met a couple of my closest friends here. Plus made many more close connections. Some of whom I've kicked it with quite a few times. Some of whom I've never actually met in person.

Fucking crazy.

my only real time away was the board 'reset' in 2002 which is the only reason i don't have my Charter (I think it was just "soulsike" capitalized)

so many overnights spent watching/reading flame wars, reading qoolquest reviews and tour diaries, trying to win Black Lilly tickets and then figuring out how to get to Philly after.

Crushing on Angieee even tho she was the "RA" (still got Broke Diaries on the shelf)

The OCK era.

the RWQ era.

the brief photos/quasi-BGOL era.

The 'everybody's a struggling artist' era.

And best of all, watching us all grow up and take over the world.

It was a gift given to me after I graduated and the plan was for me to keep track of my life after college and starting my career in LA. I just found it recently and at first I was pretty good about tracking what was going on in my world but what I figured out is that I pretty much gave up journaling to talk shit on these boards. Like the time I use to spending writing in that journal ended up being the time I spent here talking music, culture, etc.

I encourage everyone to have a looksee at the passages and the way this space broke cultural ground from an outsider perspective.

Also such a trip to see OKP artists at the point of writing memoirs and doing book tours. I can't wait to read Thought's book.

Here's the trailer the OG documentation of the site!

In response to Reply # 107


  

          

He saw fit capture footage of Okayplayer in its very early stages.
We showed a trailer for it at my house at the 2nd OK Reunion in 2000.
Like, that's how early it was. Dude was living out of his car driving all over the country.

I hope whatever film project OKP is doing,
they find a way to include him and his footage.

Props to Tim Adkins, aka delsbrothergeorge.

I was posting under a different name then, really only posting in Freestyle and lurking in The Lesson. On one hand, I'm glad my incredibly lame battle attempts can no longer be tied to my handle... but on the other hand, it meant I sacrificed a Charter Membership.

Anyway. Wild that this place is still here, lol.
