Yeah, seems to be a lack of motivation with Blu. Between supposedly putting on terrible live shows and releasing a bunch of half assed music that barely sounded finished, he kind've hurt himself.
And then there was this tweet from ?uestlove when the Roots Undun album came out......
"All you Blu RTs: every verse under went major scrutiny (@phontigallo wrote about 16 verses before we were happy) not only was he NOT in the parameters of the #UNDUN narrative but he pretty much gave up after 2 attempts. We are not in the business of hunting someone down. We are in the business of building the perfect machine. This is how we operate. Can't afford "yes men" this late in our career. Even as leaders of the group Riq & I aren't above critique (being told to go back & redo stuff countless times) perhaps next project we can have another go round w/ Blu. We're fans still."
Wow.. I remember a lot of people were upset that Blu wasn't on the album.. Makes sense now, looks like he really didn't have much desire at all.
Still, for some reason, imo this makes Quest sound like a bit off a jerk.
You're fucken damn right, you've rustled my jimmies & I assume everyone else's!!! I tell you what, I'll pay your airfare over to Melbourne, it will only be a one way ticket though, because I will KILL you, you child molesting fuckwit!!!
“I focus on both sonics and story, but music sometimes, just music itself, can turn into more of a maths problem. I guess everything in life is a math problem, but it can be more about an empirical route to getting the symmetry that you want, and this vibe, sonically. But storytelling’s a different thing. Like I said, it’s the more interesting part about making music for me, or making albums and songs and stuff. So much so that I might not make another album. I might just write a novel next. I don’t know!”
“It could be [my final album]. It could be it, if I flew next week and my plane crashed! It could be it if somebody walked along and shot me for my bracelet or something. It could always be it. The idea of recognising your strengths and using them in as versatile a way as you can is cool to me. I don’t ever want to be caught up in a system of thinking I can do one thing ’cause that’s just … that’s just telling yourself a lie. But I do like to sing. I play piano every day. I enjoy that.”
Me personally, I think he'll make another album. But it won't come out next year, I'd say 2014 at the EARLIEST. I highly doubt he doesn't make another album.
MED- SO REAL
Always nice to come across a different Dilla beat every once in a while..Didn't even know this track existed til like a month ago
Nice, I got alot people where I live into this song..
It's funny how Dilla gets more love on this song than MED, but man Dilla did outperform MED aswell. His delivery is somewhat boring but gets supported by great producers for some reason.. Whatever, can't hate on that just enyoy the good music..
