Yet another sea of cargo shorts

After Friday’s update on my epic 45 minute plane ride from St. Louis to Chicago, I figured I’d spare you bitches from having to read any more having to do with Lollapalooza. There wasn’t a whole lot of hip-hop there anyway, and I wasn’t sure if I’d catch any of it.

There may have been one or two more rap acts on the bill (a veritable shiteload of groups played this weekend), but the three main ones were the Roots, Rhymefest and Lupe Fiasco. I had just seen the Roots a mere matter of days prior, when I was in New York for Rock the Bells. And I had seen both Rhymefest and Lupe last summer when I was in the Chi for the Intonation festival, which I wrote about here at the time.

I enjoyed Rhymefest’s set last summer quite a bit, and I figured I might catch him again this weekend, but it wasn’t very high on my list of priorities. Lupe, on the other hand, didn’t do a whole lot for me at all, and they had him playing against Amy Winehouse, so I knew for certain that neither myself nor anyone with the sense god gave a bird would be catching his set. As it turns out, this guy I was meeting (no homo) was checking out Rhymefest, so I caught about half of his set.

Unfortunately, Rhymefest’s set turned out to be the second rap show I’d seen in as many weeks that was kinda ruined by the artist opting to play with a live band rather than a DJ. Not that it was awful or anything, but you knew it would’ve been that much better had the artist actually played to his strengths rather than, presumably, trying to switch their style up for a cracka-ass cracka festival crowd. You’ll recall that this was also the case with Public Enemy’s set at Rock the Bells.

To be sure, I don’t have anything against a group that opts to perform with live instruments rather than a DJ, but I find that sort of thing works best when said group’s catalog was obviously meant to be performed that way in the first place, a la the Roots or Rage Against the Machine. When you have a group that’s more reliant on sample-based production, like Rhymefest or especially Public Enemy, it’s obviously going to be that much more difficult to recreate that live with your typical guitar, bass and drums setup.

If I remember correctly (I did my share of drinking this weekend, plus some), the Roots were going on not too long after Rhymefest went off, and they were on the main stage not too far from the smaller stage Rhymefest played, so we decided to head on over. For me, it meant missing almost all of the Hold Steady’s set on the other side of Grant Park, but I figured what the fuck. You could have a whole other festival just based on the groups I figured I’d like to see this weekend but didn’t, either because it didn’t work out logistically or I was too lazy and drunk. Or both.

As I noted in my recap of Rock the Bells, the Roots put on one of my two favorite sets there and just plain one of the best live shows I’ve ever seen. Their set at Lollapalooza didn’t quite live up to those lofty standards, even though it wasn’t all that different either. In general, it seems like they cleansed a lot of the rap from their set and played a lot of jam-oriented shit, which is ironic since the crowd at Lollapalooza was hardly any less, shall we say, “ethnically diverse” than the crowd at Rock the Bells.

Indeed, if I had one complaint about Lollapalooza that didn’t have to do with the hit my already rather meager checking account took, it’s that there were so many overtures to ethnic diversity that seemed kinda forced and corny, especially when you consider that the festival is supposed to have some sort of progressive political element. Aside from the few hip-hop acts, there were black rock groups and a few hispanic acts, but they were all the kind of groups that appeal to a primarily white audience.

The thing is, I think Rock the Bells already kinda proved that black people just plain aren’t gonna pay whatever it costs (in that case, about $100) to hear thoughtful music in a live setting. I know in the debate that stemmed from the lily white turnout to RtB it was put forth by some that black people, only 140-something years removed from the end of slavery, just don’t have enough money to kick it like that, but who wants to bet how many of us show up to the Scream Tour with T.I. and Lil’ Bow Wow or whatever?

    Still doing your gay hate towards Lupe, Bol? Its getting a bit sad this e-beef with someone whos a lot more famous than you.

  • DANJA29

    Bol… nobody but teenage girls and teenage dudes with effeminate musical taste show up to Scream Tour shows. Clearly not the same demographic that you’re sayin’ wouldn’t go to Lollapalooza.

    And yes, contrived ethnic diversity is corny.

    I was at RTB and was also surprised by the lack of diversity. If black people aren’t buying black music and won’t even support their artists by going to shows, how can the art form hope to survive?

    now you get it

  • http://www.hhnlive.com frankster04

    there wasn’t even enough “diversity” at lollapalooza for it to be deemed as forced and corny. everyone was way too hot and drunk to even move around in that big ass park, but it was fun nonetheless. i definitely feel you on the checking account thing. but take away the 7 dollar beers and abundance of shirtless frat dudes and you have yourself a pretty fun weekend. amy winehouse blew me away.

    Just your reminder Bol:

    It is not the critic who counts,
    Not that man who points out how the strong man stumbled,
    Or where the doers of deeds could have done them better.
    The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena;
    Whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood;
    Who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again
    Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions
    And spends himself in a worthy cause; who, at the best,
    Knows in the end the triumph of high achievement;
    And who, at worst if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly,
    So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls
    Who know neither victory nor defeat.”
    – Theodore Roosevelt

    I just skimmed through your comment…what is your basis for thinking Jesus is white with blue eyes? In other words, where do you get this image of Jesus? Is it a description in the Bible? If so, can you send us the quote?

    Also, what’s your basis for saying that blacks are subhuman? What does subhuman mean? And how do blacks fall this category?

    “but who wants to bet how many of us show up to the Scream Tour with T.I. and Lil’ Bow Wow or whatever?” Thats pretty funny cause I’ve been planning on going to the Rock the Bells concert for a chance to escape the completely mindless and barely Minstrel state of popular rap. I’m black in case you were wondering and my dad at first suggested I go to the Scream Tour and was puzzled when I opted for RtB. It’s a shame there aren’t more black people in Chicago(from what I’ve seen) that are really into music with some type of meaning.

    Don’t get me wrong, we have a lot of positive dudes and a few people are into them (definitely myself included) but I just don’t feel that young hip-hop listeners (or whatever u call that stuff 92.3 and 107.5 plays) appreciate or even want to explore and expand their minds through thoughtful and influential music. I was just saying that the ordinary hip-hop listener isn’t checking for those dudes (well maybe Kanye) and it hurts me to say that because they really deserve it. You say they have a great support, maybe verbally but definitely not monetary. Or the state of Hip-Hop would be a lot different.

  • Mo Nages

  • these posts are racist

    G. Scrilla,

    Word, I feel you. 92.3 comes through sometimes with their throw back nights, etc. but on the whole it has been suburban white kids who have traditionally supported hip hop (via buying records) so…i don’t think its a sudden change in black youth (low income black youth) but rather suburban white kids…who have stopped buying rap records.

    I was out in LA recently at a night club and they were playing hip hop (mostly the snap pop, crap) and then they switched to an old rock son…and the place went bananas…I took that as a sign…

  • Fernando

    TPAR,

    No, I actually never talk to the black crowd on the theories I have about blacks in America. It would probably piss them off to hear the truth about why they are struggling in the richest nation in the world. Its much easier for them to blame the white man & racism for everything, call it a day, and go home with their baby mommas/daddys (70% black kids born out of wedlock).

    Tell me, do you think it serves the black community better to search for a viable way out of poverty and to take a “never say die” attitude when trying to make it in America OR to sit back and blame others and cross their fingers and whine and cry to get free money from the government???

    I think TPAR would rather play the blame game and cross fingers. Which actually seems more racist when you think about it. TPAR thinks so little of his people that they have no hope in America other than to take free handouts, demand reparations, and blame white people for their problems.

    This type of thinking has killed much of the black entrepreneurial spirit that was once thriving in this country and reduced some of the greatest people in history to beggers and cry-babies. For shame TPAR.

    They do however have great music, poetry, athletes, food, style, resilience, and a great number of cultrual and historical moments to be proud of. So there is some hope for the future.

    You wonder why many young black males go down the wrong track. Because when they dress and act like these two clowns who are heald up as role-models, no business or educational opportunity will ever present itself to them. They wear shirts that look like dresses and have their pants arount their knees. They need to act like they got some damn sense if they want anything in this country.

    Why is skinheadbob preaching about white superiority when he can’t even write a coherent sentence?

  • The Spaniard

    TPAR

    Fernando has a slight point. When considering welfare totals or poverty numbers using ratios over raw totals can help to show a trend.

    For example…
    White population 100,000
    Black population 10,000
    Whites welfare/poverty 10,000 (10%)
    Blacks welfare/poverty 5,000 (50%)

    Although the total figure for whites is double that of blacks, blacks would seem to have a built problem or deterent to success.

    Where I disagree with Fern is that it is not simply a matter of ‘pulling your boot straps up’ and making shit happen for a large number of people. If a group starts a race 8 lengths back how in hell can everyone be expected to just catch up and maintain when a major part of society has been conspiring against you for 400+ years. People seem to forget we are only a generation (if that) removed from legal & systematic segregration (Jim Crow).

    Reperations? You’re god-damn right. Part of the rational behind corporations (& govnerments) is to have a legal entity responisble to society at large.

  • these posts are racist

    The Spaniard,

    No doubt, proportionatley, of course there are more blacks on welfare than whites. My point in giving the raw number argument was that obviously poverty and welfare are not just a “black problem.” More importantly, anyone whose studied the demographics of welfare recipients knows that most people on welfare are working people! Thus refuting the lazy theory of those on welfare…

    Jim Crow laws and segregation are only 40 some years behind us. That’s what is called De Jure racism…or institutional racism. The De Facto racism, forget about, its alive and well…today.

  • these posts are racist

    “Part of the rational behind corporations (& govnerments) is to have a legal entity responisble to society at large.”

    This is actually incorrect. The US govt. is generally immune from law suit. Also, corporations are set up so as to avoid responsibility. Shareholders have some mechanisms by which to sue, etc. but for the most part corporations cause lots of harm for profit and rarely have to pay for their sins.

And Jesus had Brown Hair and Brown eyes (both the same color as Black and Mexicans). And most of the White People in prison are in there for Child Molestion its sad how they can’t fuck a girl there own age oh thats right there all takin and have trains run on them down in the hood. And belive me most of the averages white girls are Ugly as FUCK! U just mad because they don’t have a big FAT ASS BOOTY like Black girls and can’t shake there ass like mexican girls.

    Corporations are set up so as to avoid ‘personal’ responsibility. There is legal recourse/action taken against corporate entities all the time. The fact that they (corporations) use various methods to minimize that action was not pertinent to my original point.

    Spaniard,

    I think we’re generally on the same page. The line between Corporations and Govt. is becoming increasingly insignificant. Big Corporations actually draft (write up) many of the laws that are supposed to regulate them…and our govt. just rubber stamps them without even reading the content. So while an individual can seek legal recourse for certain things against a corporation, on the whole, its an unfair social contract and corporations get the best of all worlds…

    Corporations run the individuals who run the govt. who run our lives.

    I get it. Because I argue against bigots who ride on the wave of racism against Muslims and Arabs, i must be a Muslim or Arab and therefore Naseem is my hero.

    Nice…

    If you’re not on that level of ignorance Dark, stop acting like it. You’re tired of wiggers, I’m tired of biggots like you trying to act like you automatically know more about something and if someone actually comes with a more educated view that yours automatically outweights theirs cause you’re black and they’re not. I’m Italian, but I don’t speak it, and I just recently got into learning more about my heritage, so it’s safe to say that I’m pretty humble and I don’t think I’m all knowing on the subject (or any subject for that matter) cause I’m of that heirtage.

    Spaniard,

    I think we’re generally on the same page. The line between Corporations and Govt. is becoming increasingly insignificant. Big Corporations actually draft (write up) many of the laws that are supposed to regulate them…and our govt. just rubber stamps them without even reading the content. So while an individual can seek legal recourse for certain things against a corporation, on the whole, its an unfair social contract and corporations get the best of all worlds…

    Corporations run the individuals who run the govt. who run our lives.

    nice….and people still keep voting for the cookie cutter politicians coming straight off this corporate assembly line.

    TPAR,

    To try and point out some of the worst people in history as white is a juvenile argument the likes of which even BET style probably wouldnt broadcast. What about Mobutu? Pol Pot? Quadhaffi?(probably your idol) Evil goes across color idiot.

    More whites are on welfare because we make up 70% of the country. Are you too dumb to understand this? Have you ever taken a simple statistics class, or just buried your head in Muslim / communist propoganda?

    So maybe idiot rockers have an influence on white kids too. Thats fine. But for a majority of the white population, this isnt seen as the only avenue to wealth (or even a viable one for that matter).

    You try and act smart, but you are the biggest clown on here. What would be your social policy? More welfare? Less cops? More reparations? Communism? Sharia Law? Separate black state?

    You fucking asshole, you had to put a minor blemish on my day by taking the name of my personal favorite basketball player and posting that idiotic nonsense.

    And before anyone chirps in, I didn’t say he was the best player ever, only my personal favorite. Definitely the top small forward IMO.

    Fern is one dumb mutha fucka.

    Fern’s argument:

    Black people are more likely to try and MC and follow rappers then white people are to follow rockers and try and sing. (See black people are stupid, white people are not that dumb to try and follow that shit)

    You obviously were born in the 80′s and did not grow up in the 80′s in the hair band hay day.

    Play your fuckin position little nigga, learn your role.

    @Fair

    Jackass, I haven’t made a single statement about any race being ‘better’ than any other. As a matter of fact, from an ideological high level viewpoint I could not care less about ‘race’ as far as it meaning something more than physical, surface characteristics.

    Got it?

    You should learn how to read.

  • The Spaniard

    ‘The Spaniard’ = Russell Crowe (Aussie white man) playing a Spanish (Spain, not Mexico) general fighting for Rome in a fictional Hollywood movie.

    I’m black, so why do I post under that name? I was watching the movie when I made my first post and that nigger was fucking niggers up and at the end of the day just wanted to go hame, bang his wife, and take care of his family. That’s why.

  • Militärschokolade

    Russel Crowe was Roman in gladiator, like the the Holy Roman Empire, he wasn’t spanish.

    Oh shit, I take that back, nevermind.

    TAKE YOUR RESPONSABILITIES XXL

    Bol, just like that white nazi, is just as racist.

    Yet nobody says nothing about bol.

    Listen to more reggae and grow up XXL, leting Bol posting complete non sense about white people will bring all the wrong people to this website.

    Hip hop should be the voice of the revolution, the voice of the people. And therefore and just like any music, it only belongs to those listenning to it, whether black, beige, green or white, the more the merrier. (and the more influences the better the beats and subjects rappers rap about)
    Travel. Look a lot. Open books and your mind will follow.
    One love

    You’re complaining about the lack of diversity at Lollapalooza? Who the fuck outside of a 25 year old virgin would go see Lollapalooza anyway, black, brown, or white? Let me explain festival concerts to you from the white mindset: cool, we’ll go drink beer in the sun. At smaller rap shows, I’ve been there where the audience was almost all black, where the audience was almost all white, and where the audience was mixed. Most of the time, no one cared anyway. Lollapalooza, an exercise in nostalgia, is not the place to gauge current trends. You don’t know anything about music at all, or it would appear, pop culture, or . . . anything. How about a blog where you discuss something positive? Or suggest a solution for one of the fake problems you bring up? Does YN pay you? My god.
