"too hip hop" to perform at the jazz cafe.(london)


So yeah...this is what i was told about us gettin a gig at the jazz cafe in london. Oddisee, correct me if Im wrong on this 1..."The Low budget crew is too hip hop to perform at the jazz cafe". Wooooooooooooooooooooooooow. Im not even quite sure what that means. Should we take that as an insult or a compliment. Hmmm. To all the london fans that have been hittin us up to do the jazz cafe, thats the response we got after a good couple weeks... I guess LITTLE BROTHER, PETE ROCK AND CL SMOOTH etc... are just hip hop enuff for the j.c...kev brown, oddisee and kenn starr would push the hip hop meter a little too high for a venue like that. I really dont understand. If there are any other venues in london that would like to host us hit us up on the myspace joint. Other than that, its out of our hands london fans.

p.s. If this is really true...F%!k the jazz cafe!!

LOW BUDGET 4 LIFE!

Man, that's low. Jazz Cafe is wack for that. Maybe you can send them the requests you received from all the London people who wanted Low Budget to come through.

heres the jazz cafe jump offs schedule...seems they got dilated, slum, rakim and more shows coming up....this is definitely weird ish...too hip hop? i thought they were to jazzy for a second...thus the jazz cafe being the perfect spot for low budget to rock...ah man...dont know what to say...if so frrrup the cafe indeed...hopefully another venue capitalizes on the show...the uk got mad respect for the low budget crew...

mr. kev brown said it best "forget industry cats, god they all shiest"

yo

I have been to Jazz Cafe many times over the years, seen everyone from Pharoahe Monch to Jungle Brothers there. They even hosted a dj battle (ITF? can't remember)one year. Damn, even the Roots literally had a residency there back in the days when they were living in London. If anytyhing it's more of a hip hop/eclectic venue than a jazz one.

That's a lame excuse. Maybe they let Jazzy Jeff dj there 'cos he got 'jazz' in his name, lol.

Heads up Low Budget, people in London would love to see you live, I'm sure you can find another venue.

Peace.

Go to Cargo instead homes. The venue's bigger and nicer, and they don't be charging out the muthafuckin ass either.

Low Budget is as hiphop as it gotta be for Antwerp!!

Peace

It's just politics. If you were Kanye or some big name cat there wouldn't be a problem. Industry bullsh*t, gotta luv it...

Bee said...

wtf? that shit doesn't even make sense.

thats a real shame kev, it would have been dope to see you guys live, you and the low budget crew would have killed that place.

have you tried any other venues?? like CARGO, i'm sure they'd have more sense. i'm gonna ask around see if we can't get the you and the crew over for a show.

peace

a)Thousands download kev brown music every hour upon the hour go to slsk and see how many tracks aren inque for downloads...

b)selling beats and working on projects is like contract work so its not like your consistently working

c)Record labels are shiest ..the units that kev brown does sell get shiested by the labels especially in the underground..where you can pass off water sa sprite

d)now the shows are gettin fucked over by promoters being shiest and venues talking that bull shit

now my question is how the fuck are these artists suppose to live? and do the music? this shit really breaks a mans spirits...it breaks my spirits just hearing this shit...hip hop is a fuckin joke now

the masonic jews are fucking the world over....thats all im sayin...why the fuck are all thse outlets ran by cracker ass motheruckers...were alreay fucking rotting in pouverty then we start rhyming cause aint got shit to your name...and then we start making some progress as a urban community and then these fucking crackers come in...and fuckin own the pressing cd's, vinyl plants...own the record labels...own the licesning companies...the fuckin mpc makers are WHITE! fuckin microphone companies are white! fuckin studio gear people that make it are white!...fuckin radio dj's are WHITE!...fuckin these dirty ass critics that write for once black owned magazines are WHITE! and they talk about hip hop as if its not black culture ..fuck outta here man..everything they gotta fuck us ove..in....like dave chapelle...dude fuckin refused the 50 mill because they wanted him to do some racist degrading shit to the blacks on t.v. ...so when he refuses and cgoes to africa too cool out...the dirty jew white media...fuckin calls him crazy and that hes on coke...get the fuck outta here man...FUCK!

FUCK them for doing that. I'll never visit that place if I go overseas

^ and u need to quiet that noise up there about white people. That's not fair. Yes, those guys u mentioned are most likely white assholes but please don't over-generalize, that's racist. I'm white, I support hip hop to the bottom of my bank account. And word I do write for Okayplayer and HipHopDX so I guess I can support your sterotype LOLOLOL

Anonymous said...

nah nothing against whites aslong as they respect it...hell alot of whites are cool as shit..im talking about these industry corporate minstrel show ass niggas that are pimping artistry down to the needle...ya dig...but yea all writers for hip hop sites and magazines are white LOL and heres the funniest part..they judge on whos got the most soul or if some soul was lacking in an artists album LOL!!!

Racism: the idea that one's own race is superior and has the right to rule others.

sounds like white people to me LOL

Anonymous said...

yeah I thought that was what u meant... I hear u on that. "Old white men is runnin this rap shit" lol

Anonymous said...

correction "homosexual white men is running this rap shit" the hip hop industry on the major level is ran by all Caucasian homosexual men....thats not a knock theres nothing wrong with being gay and being white...but that pretty much does explain why hip hop in ever arena is....

I'll add my voice to the chorus about Cargo. I've been there. It's fresh.

You also need to holler at my Uprock and Amplified fam. They're good peoples. Tell 'em I sent you.

When I see you again I'm going to ask you if you followed up. That goes for you too, Oddisee, especially with the ave.to jump-off.

LOW BUDGET!!!!!!!

Put a few "lowbudget" sugar on their coffe'...

Peace from Brasil, Kev.

We really apreciate your work, come to BRASIL !!!

any chick in brazil can get the snare...thats word..besides uk bitches is kinda ugly

triple cosign on cargo.. maybe even try and find some promoters that throw down at Fabric, or even do the shit at Herbal (in fact; Herbal will be a shoo in; depends if you want up in there or no.. place can be quiet outside friday/saturday nights, when they usually on lockdown with the DnB mafia... Madame JoJos is another possible. i've played all these venues, they all bang in their own weird way

fkn Jazz Cafe charge too much for their drinks anyways

cheh
pups

Lyly said...

Lol @ this becoming a race debate.

I personally think the reason Jazz Cafe turned you down was because they believed you were too obscure and didn't have a big enough following to make the show profitable...

Which really isnt the case, low budget have enough of a following with the underground to be able to do a show like that and draw the crowds in

Play Wack dudes in some other gig in london and dedicated to this fags.

Chill....
