  1. [quote=Daedalus Mortality,Mar 15 2004, 07:05 PM][quote] But seriously you should al stop whining about doing oldskool music NO ONE should make old skool music,...[/quote]
    When i say "old skool"...i don't mean the same kinda 80's styled stuff. When i say "old skool", i'm talking about the quality it of the music and the mindstate behind it. I'm talking about good, repsectful lyrics, putting on a show with energy, preaching postivity and strength and having a good time. I don't mean dated music, i mean music that's actually good.

  2. The video is so funny!! JJ+FP are lookin' mad smooth in it, and even tho' the song itself isn't that funny, they are doing what they do best in the video...BE FUNNY!! I think the milkman scene is probably the funniest. Has any other rapper been caught in milkman gear?!?! ha ha.

    I seriously only ever saw the video on MTV twice back in late 1991/early 1992. I'm lucky 2 have 2 music video promo tapes that feature this video.

  3. I saw the movie School of Rock 2nite. The movie that features Jack Black as an out-of-work rocker who takes the job of a subsitute teacher who basically turns the class in2 a rock band. He takes their young minds that are dumb-founded 2 rock music and it's roots and he skools them and trains them 2 play in the Battle of The Bands. I watched this movie and totally could see it flipped 2 a Hip-Hop theme with Will as the lead character. If u havn't seen this movie, then this post will mean nothing 2 u, but if u have, u should like this....

    Will plays Jack Black's character. He's in a Hip-Hop group that desides 2 go gangsta since their old skool, feel good vybe isn't gettin' them anywhere. Jazzy Jeff plays his best friend who is sharing the apartment that Will can't afford 2 hold up his part of the rent. MC Lyte plays Jeff's controling girlfriend who hates Will and wants him OUT of the apartment and out of threir lives.

    Will takes the substitute teacher as an attempt 2 pay the rent. He goes on what he knows by 4getting all the skool subjects and talks music with the kids. He soon finds out that they are brainwashed by the P. Diddy-G-Unit-Eminem-Ludacris modern day garbage and know nothing about real music. Will skools the kids on old skool Hip-Hop and where it comes from. He finds out the kids' talent and appoints them emcees, DJs, breakers, beatboxes and gets other kids involved in set design (graffitee, lighting) and fashion.

    Keep in mind this movie has tons of adult roles where Hip-Hop legends can be playing. Anyways, it's later found out Will isn't qualifyed 4 the job and he's taken away from the skool. The kids later take things in2 their own hands 2 compete in a local Hip-Hop-Rap talent show in which they outshine all the fake-thugged-out and shiny-suit-jiggy rappers.

    Even tho' Will likes 2 seperate his emceeing skills from movies, this movie would the kinda movie Will could really let loose. Anyone else like this idea!?!?

  4. I don't know how i feel about this. If it's a movie track, he might be screwing him self musically. Hopefully the soundtrack is only partly releated 2 the actual movie and any song he would contribute 2 it would be just a song and not a song related 2 the movie.

    I don't see the album comin' out this summer...but i think it would be a great time 4 it. Either way, a new song would defintly be dope. It's good 2 know his passion 4 music is keeping him busy even when it comes 2 music that's not 4 his own albums.

  5. I don't put "Black Suits Comin'" in the same category as his real music...so i don't hold the same standards 2 it. I like the way he experimented with the rock vibe...however, if he wanted a flawless rock/rap beat, he should have went to Jam Master Jay. I think the lyrics were really creatived and LOVED his flow on the track. He took a dangerous step by making a sequel 2 a song 4 a movie soundtrack and he pulled it off.

    I'd never compare this track 2 any of his real music tho'...it's a song he did strictly 4 a movie.

    CHICO: Yo man, let's head over 2 Micky D's.

    RAMONE: Yeah, i could go 4 some chicken nuggets.

    FRESH PRINCE: Man, last time they didn't put enuff M&M's in my McFlurry!!

    TONE: I'ma get a Big Mac myself.

  7. Prince, i don't see where the disappointing trax are. Maybe a few on the last one...but i think they did a great job of chosing trax 4 it.

    Cookie, Jill actually sung on the original version of the song, but for commercial reasons, they scrapped the version with the then-unknown Jill Scott 2 have Erykah Badu (already a success) sing on it. I remember The Roots saying the version with Jill is far better...so i'd love 2 hear this live version with her. I still think the version with Erykah is a modern-day classic tho.'

  8. I can't chose a fav track...but here are my top favs...

    "Somethin' Like Dis"....new skool JJ+FP...nuff said
    "I'm Looking For The One (To Be With Me)"...the beat is thick and perfect. Lyrics are not real focused since it's a laid-back party joint.
    "Just Kickin' It"....JJ+FP at it's laid-back best.
    "Scream"....on of the best songs ever created 2 be performed live...even tho' i don't think it every waz performed live.
    "Shadow Dreams"...JJ+FP isn't known 4 serious, deep trax....but this song is untouchable.
    "Twinkle Twinle"...one of their best...period

  9. That's weird, that one page dosen't have any of my updates. It still has the TRL "Freakin' It" banner at the top with the colors Sony gave it during Willennium...ha ha. The funny thing is, ghb waz never a moderator (what's up with that!?!) It waz amg, then CarlaM who then appointed me and 3Cookies.

    I really wish we could open up those old posts.

  10. I think this album will be one of his stronger ones. He's doing things on his own terms, he has no record label breathing down his back. He's creating the whole thing himself for himself. I think Will will be very comfortable on the album lyric and flow wise like with Born To Reign, but i think the sound will not be nearly as experimental. I think he waz trying new things, and while he'll continue 2 do so, i think he'll be going back home when it comes 2 the sound.

  11. [quote=fan 4ever,Mar 12 2004, 10:11 PM]i'm gonna keep it real with you..i don't really like this forum..way 2 much going on[/quote]
    I agree that there might be a bit 2 much going on. 2 many of the off-topic boards in my opinion. When Cookie waz re-working her message boards, i suggested that 2 many different forums thins out the activity cuz when there are alot of forums, it's hard 2 find motivation to use them all. U'll know after a month or so if that's really true in this case tho.'

  12. I don't get 2 watch alot of TV, but i did catch 2 new videos on BET's Midnight Love 2nite.

    Jagged Edge's "What's It Like" waz on and i waz already in love with this song when i got the album, but u know how the right songs with the right videos can make them even better...this is definitly the case with this track. It's a great slow jam (there havn't been many slow jams out recently). It goes back and forth between black + white scenes and color scenes (havn't seen a good video with black and white since the early and mid-90's. They are rockin' smooth suits in one of the scenes. I love Jagged Edge so and i'm happy 2 see them pushing on with their "Hard" album.

    Alicia Key's new video "If I Ain't Got You" is dope also. One of the best songs on her album and the video totally compliments it. She always brings a mood 2 everyone of her videos. She looks gorgous in it also.

    Just wanted 2 say, look out 4 these videos. I'm happy 2 see singles from 2 of my favorite albums from this fall/winter pushing on as we enter spring.
