Prince Paul: “I remember recording it at my house. Pos came over with the idea of using a Michael Jackson record. And I had few other samples laid underneath it, so we pieced it together until we got it right. He had some rough rhymes to it, and it was good enough for us to take it into the studio.

“I recommended all of them to get equipment so we can do pre-production at home, instead of spending that much money or time in the studio. Especially Buhloone Mindstate, we were trying to record more stuff before we went into the studio.

 

If you think about it, from 3 Feet High and Rising on is when Tommy Boy’s greatest success started. Since then they’ve signed Queen Latifah, House of Pain, Coolio, and Digital Underground. Basically a lightbulb went on in their heads like, “Oh, that’s what it is.”

 

“We had to pay for the Michael Jackson sample. Tommy Boy was really sensitive, and rightfully so. You can’t get away with a Michael Jackson sample. There’s no way of getting around that. In some cases, it’s not just paying for some artist, you had to convince them that you’re worthy of using it.

"You have guys like Michael Jackson and Quincy Jones, who don’t need extra money. What is it to them? Especially during that era? So it was more so, ‘Do they like you?’ You can offer them an extra amount of money, and all the publishing, but they can still easily say, ‘No, don’t need it.’

“The label always supported De La because they were integral to their success. I mean, if you really think about it, aside from “Planet Rock,” the next big [Tommy Boy] record that sold a lot, and had a cultural impact was 3 Feet High and Rising. They based a lot of knowledge [on] what we did, and how we market ourselves, to find and develop other artists. So if you think about it, from 3 Feet High and Rising on is when Tommy Boy’s greatest success started.

"Since then they’ve signed Queen Latifah, House of Pain, Coolio, and Digital Underground. Basically a lightbulb went on in their heads like, “Oh, that’s what it is.” And we presented our ideas to Tommy Boy as far as marketing, and album themes, etc. The label just took it and ran. So as Tommy Boy was becoming successful, it did have a sense of loyalty to the group, which was amazing. And De La Soul was still making them money. Even a flop record going Gold weren’t in the negative. So they were still a cash cow for Tommy Boy.” - (source www.complex.com)

"This ain’t checkers!!!!" 

But there is a major fail in this movie: You can not check the other player when you are already been checked. But hey, it’s Jules AKA Ordell Aka Mister Señor Daddy Love or just Samuel L Jackson he makes the rules.

Love a game chess. Have to play at least one game a day - ‘83 till infinity y’all Peace

'Consulaat perst al 20 jaar Eritrese Nederlanders af'

Het Eritrese consulaat in Den Haag perst al bijna 20 jaar Eritrese Nederlanders af door maandelijks 2 procent van hun inkomsten te innen. Wie weigert te betalen, wordt bedreigd, geïntimideerd en noodzakelijke consulaire diensten onthouden. Dat melden slachtoffers van deze praktijken aan de Volkskrant.

Een groep Eritreeërs uit Amersfoort wendde zich op 9 juni per brief tot burgemeester Bolsius. Ze schrijven over de ‘verplichting’ om 2 procent van hun inkomen of uitkering aan het dictatoriale regime over te dragen, over actieve tegenwerking van het consulaat bij de oprichting van maatschappelijke organisaties voor zelfhulp en over andere manieren om ‘oorlogsgelden’ te innen.

Festivals
Dat gebeurt bijvoorbeeld op culturele festivals die elk jaar in Nederland worden georganiseerd. Zo’n Eritrees festival stond gepland voor 10, 11 en 12 augustus in Zaandam. Dat is geannuleerd, nadat de zaaleigenaar was geïnformeerd over het dubieuze karakter van de bijeenkomst.

'Onder enorme druk en intimidatie door verschillende organisaties, waaronder de gemeente Zaandam en Amnesty International, heeft de zaaleigenaar het al betaalde contract simpelweg verbroken', verklaren de organisatoren de afgelasting. Via Facebook kondigden ze nieuwe feesten aan. Die hadden vrijdag in Amsterdam en zaterdag in Rotterdam plaats. In Nederland wonen naar schatting 14 duizend Eritreeërs.

Het consulaat in Den Haag is niet de enige Eritrese vertegenwoordiging die illegaal ‘diaspora-belasting’ int. Dat gebeurt door Eritrese consulaten wereldwijd, aldus de jongste rapportage (13 juli) van de Monitoring Group on Somalia and Eritrea, die in 2009 is ingesteld door de Veiligheidsraad van de VN.

Mensenrechten
De Monitoring Group noemt Eritrea een ‘destabiliserende factor’ in de Hoorn van Afrika. Het regime van president Isaias Afewerki steunt de Somalische radicaal-islamistische beweging Al Shabaab, bewapent Ethiopische opstandelingen en schendt in eigen land op de grote schaal de mensenrechten.

Volgens ruwe schattingen van mensenrechtenorganisaties leven ruim een miljoen Eritreeërs in de diaspora (als vluchteling of balling), de meerderheid in Soedan en Ethiopië. Hoeveel geld zij in ‘Isaias’ oorlogskas’ storten, valt niet te berekenen, zegt Meron Estefanos van de International Commission on Eritrean Refugees. Zij schat dat 40 procent van hen, van Saoedi-Arabië tot Canada, wordt gedwongen geld af te staan.

Het Eritrese consulaat in Den Haag is niet in staat te reageren op de aantijgingen.
