Politics / MOS DEF interviews Al Gore
« on: June 26, 2006, 12:31:19 AM »

A wasted opportunity IMO. I wish he could have asked more questions about matters that are relevant to the hiphop audience but then again it must be difficult to really get your point across to a politician who believes that he "invented" the internet.

this is from the dope BLOG

Politics / the problem with Africa (leaders)
« on: June 04, 2006, 11:11:57 PM »
this writer called it right in my opinion. Hit the nail on the head. Here's an extract:

"Not long ago, many thought that South Africa’s overthrow of institutionalised racism and its attempt to build a truly nonracial, modern and cosmopolitan society was the best gift Africa had ever given to the world. Less than 15 years after liberation, it is no longer clear that the country has the moral and intellectual capacity to generate an alternative meaning of what our world might be, and to become a major centre in the global south.

As the former national liberation movement is imploding, the Nongqawuse syndrome — the name for the kind of political disorder and cultural dislocation South Africa seems to be experiencing — is once again engulfing the country.

The syndrome is a populist rhetoric and politics which advocates, uses and legitimises self-destruction, or national suicide, as a means of salvation.

It is a syndrome many other postcolonial African countries (Liberia, Sierra Leone, Rwanda, Burundi, Congo, Sudan) have experienced with tragic effects over the past 50 years. "

Media / Making of READY TO DIE
« on: March 09, 2006, 05:58:41 PM »
dont think this was posted before? definitely an interesting read!

01 "Intro"
Produced by Sean "Puffy" Combs

Easy Mo Bee: The whole story line for the album--starting in the beginning when you hear the robbery happening on the train and "Rapper's Delight" in the background and everything--that was Puff's concept: to create a story line for the album. He just gave me a list of records that he wanted and I brought them back to him. He said he wanted "Rapper's Delight," Audio Two's "Top Billin'," "Superfly." We had "Got To Give It Up" by Marvin Gaye, [but it got changed] probably for sampling reasons. Songs that explain their era.

"Prince" Charles Alexander: First of all, I'm the father on the intro. There are all these voices on the intro. That "Wilona, what the f*** you doing? You can't control that goddamn boy!" That was me. And the guy at the end, the guard that lets them out of jail and says, "You'll be back," that's me also. And the reason that they used me is because three guys had gone in and tried, I forgot who. I was there, Puffy was there, Biggie was there. I was engineering and a couple of guys who were just hanging around went in and tried to do that part. And they're like very stiff-sounding: "God damn it, Wilona." And I'm like, "Yo Puff, I am an angry Black man. You should let me try that." I went in there and I screamed. I mean, Goddammit, Wilona! What the f*** you doing?! I was way, way up in it. They f***ing rolled. They loved it. They kept it. That was one of the things that kind of helped me to bond with the whole project. 'Cause I'm about 10 years older than Puffy, so I was really professional. I had a really professional vibe. So when I went in and did that, that really broke a whole lot of ice.

02 "Things Done Changed"
Produced by Dominic Owens and Kevin Scott

Lil' Cease: That was one that was most played in the car. Big loved that song. There was no particluar story behind it. It was more of a song that had a concept behind it rather than a story itself. Biggie made it to represent Brooklyn. To show how he grew up, how we grew up. He wanted to show what he was accustomed to and the lifestyle he was used to. It was one of the very first ones made. Whenever you make a track of that nature, with lyrics so real, it stands out.

03 "Gimme The Loot"
Produced by Easy Mo Bee

Easy Mo Bee: When he did "Gimme The Loot" I was like, Whoa--dude's got problems! People who wanna battle him, go up against him? Nobody's gonna wanna battle this cat. If you heard everything he said in his lyrics, you won't live. I remember very clearly that that song was done during the daytime. It was still light outside. Junior M.A.F.I.A. was there. I ain't never really worked with nobody that really spit that hard before. So when I was in the studio, I was like, "Yo, man you sure you ain't sayin' too much?" And I remember Cease and Chico sittin' back and sayin', "Yo, Mo, just chill! You sensitive!" I was like, "I just wanna make sure we get sold. I don't want no records getting snatched off the shelves." That's my whole thing. I guess that was their [definition] of being "sensitive."

Maybe Puff didn't necessarily respond to me at the time when I came to him and presented [my concerns] to him, but I remember telling him, "Yo, the shit about being pregnant, and the 'Number One Mom' pendant? Yo, be careful with that. Because you could have all kinds of Christian rights and women's rights organizations trying to pull your stuff down off the shelves and all that." At the time, Puffy kind of brushed it off. And I just walked away in my mind like, all right. But I guess later it made sense to him--even without him coming back to me. 'Cause [that lyric] got blurred out. So it worked out the way it was supposed to.

[As far as Big rhyming the two different characters' voices], he went in the booth and then it just kind of happened. He just started doing it. He would do one voice, then come behind and do the other one later--just like, leave a gap so he could come back and fill the spaces. I was like, Yo, that's creative! And he really had cats fooled. Even just last year, I was around somebody who was playing that, and still after all this time he was like, "Yo, who was that--that was Puff?" I was like, "Man, y'all really can't hear that? That's him! He did two voices." That just shows you how good he was.

Mister Cee: I clearly remember "Gimme The Loot," because I did the scratches on it. Remembering that is like yesterday. I used Kid Hood's verse from A Tribe Called Quest's "Scenario (Remix)." And how I did the turntables and made the word "Bad, bad, bad" from turning the knob off on the turntable from pressing the stop button. Each time that I brought the record back, it's a different effect to where you turn the knob off on the turntable to where you stop the turntable. You get a different effect on the record. So when you bring it regularly it's like, "Bad." Turn the knob off, "Baaad"--slower. Press the button, "Baaaad"--slowest.

04 "Machine Gun Funk"
Produced by Easy Mo Bee

Easy Mo Bee: Biggie picked that beat in my car. I had this green Acura, and we used to ride around Brooklyn. Like Fulton St. and St. James where he lived. I'd pick him up off the stoop where he lived. It'd be me, him, D.Roc, Lil' Cease, Chico--as many as we could--ridin' around in the car. We'd just ride around and just blaze and listen to beats. And that's how he picked a lot of the beats. But the actual session for "Machine Gun Funk"... It's vague to me, to be honest. Let's put it like this: There was some hazy years. I'm a changed man now.

Chucky Thompson: Big was crazy. He was just in there with some socks on and some boxer drawers--'cause it was really hot--doing his rhymes. That's when he was actually writing stuff down. He didn't take long at all. It was like he knew what he wanted to say. He'd be in there chilling, smoking or whatever and then he'd write two words, and then he'd go back to chilling and write two more words, and then he'd go in the booth.

05 "Warning"
Produced by Easy Mo Bee

Easy Mo Bee: The significant thing about "Warning" is--and I'm definitely not trying to diss him, he put me on the map, he's the first I ever worked with, so total respect to him--but that beat was offered first to Big Daddy Kane. I remember him sittin' in my crib, and I was playing him beats. I forget the album at the time that he was doing. And you know Kane was always into the Barry White, Isaac Hayes thing. So I did this joint off of Isaac Hayes, and I'm just feelin' it. I'm feelin' myself. I just know he gonna love this. This is the vibe. But he was like, "Play the next beat." I was like, "Yo, hold up, man. You sure you don't want that? That's Isaac Hayes!" He said, "You heard what I said, play the next beat."

So I just kept the beat and held onto it. A few months later when it was time to play Big beats, I played it for him. Aw man, Puffy went crazy! He went crazy, like, "Yo man, this is it!"

06. "Ready To Die" - Produced by Easy Mo Bee

Easy Mo Bee: Again, here we go with the 'sensitive' part. When Big said, "f*** my mom...", when he said "f*** the world, f*** my moms and my girl", I was like "Damn! Okay, maybe 'f*** the world'. Maybe 'f*** your girl', but 'f*** your moms?!" We all know he didn't literally mean that. Anybody knows that. That was just his whole intensified approach to explaining just how much he felt. He was ready to die. It was just an emotional expression. But again, when he said stuff like that, I was like "It's like I'm working with Ice Cube!" Amerikkkaz Most Wanted? I was like, Brooklyn's Most Wanted! I'm sure Cube and N.W.A. and stuff like that had a profound effect on him. I'm sure in some type of way, he was influenced by that stuff. At the time, we all were.

07. "One More Chance" - Produced by Norman & Digga \ Bluez Brothers, Chucky Thompson & Sean Puffy Combs...Additional Vocals by Total...Instruments by Chucky Thompson

Lil Cease: My sister did the interlude for "One More Chance" - with all the girls on it. The other girls on it, that's just my sister's friends. My little niece, she did the intro part before "One More Chance": 'All you hoes calling here for my daddy...' It was just people that was just around. If you're around and he need you - "Yo, I need a hook done."

"Prince" Charles Alexander: "One More Chance", I remember specifically. That song has a piano figure that goes 'ba-bu-da-na-na-na-na'. One of the things I did is, all the way through the song there are two parts of that piano figure, and the second part I had to keep riding, so I had to raise the level. So it's like 'ba-bu-da-na-na-na-na' and louder, 'ba-bu-da-na-na-na-na'. So that it would be the level of the first song. And it was a request. Puffy actually asked me to do that, because it was a sample, and he didn't want the sample to sound just like it had sounded before. He wanted a nuance. He wanted something that had its character in the Bad Boy world. It was little stuff like that he was requesting that really gave Bad Boy a sound. I remember him turning to me and saying 'Do you think we have a sound?' This was after the "Flava In Ya Ear", after Biggie came out, and I think we were moving onto Faith. And Puffy turned to me and said, 'do you think that we, meaning Bad Boy, have established a sound?'

Digga: Puff was in my ear every 10 seconds in the session. When me, Big, Cease and Klept and some of the crew was in the studio it was all good. But once Puff came on the scene everything got tight. At the time, Puff was still learning about production and he wanted to show that he knew something about music. He wanted certain arrangements. And I was looking at him like, 'What the hell is this guy talking about?' We'd listen to him for half a second, then we'd be like, 'Yeah, whatever.'

08. "f*** Me ( Interlude )" - Produced by Sean "Puffy" Combs

Lil Cease: We were just trying to put some personality and just some comedy and some sense of humor to it. Him and Lil' Kim did it. What they did was, there was a piano in the booth of a studio we was working in, it was in Daddy's House. It had the piano and the chair to the piano.

He was sitting on there, shaking it.
