"2FACED1 is a visionary digital network,  a loose collective with members in Europe, Africa and North America, bound together by what we call ‘stereotypophobia’."


 

Stereotypophobia

“It is all about critical questioning of what identity really is. Would you be the same person in another context? Does society have certain expectations on you based on traditional parameters like class, gender, color, sexual orientation, religious beliefs and so on? And how much do these expectations affect your so-called self? Every forward thinking person are aware of those things, its a gift which  also make you relate to other peoples struggles.”

It's 03.41 and I'm still contempleting weather or not to sleep for 3h or just push through, catch my taxi to airport and be a zombie for the rest of the day. This blogpost is pushin for option no.2. I just came home from the club a dub and some low life stole my favorite jacket. This week I've gained nothing but weight from eating as consoulation. I got fired from my law office job and today I had to return my fancy schmacny phone cause it broke (alarm didn'd go off, late for work therefore fired) AND then I went to dance my pain away but got my jacket stolen. Karma, what's the beef?

Good thing about tonight is that I hung out with Copyflex who was the main reason for me going out in first place. He played his likkle secret, his Ayoba remix that I loved. Being the attention ho I am I grabbed the mic like it was livingroom karaoke.

I'm going to Oslo. I'm playing at Oslo World Music Festival so I've been up trying to figure out which Dashiki to wear while flexing my white woman african danceclass dance. No I am really really excited but the word world music makes me anxious. I'm playing with Mash Up at Club Blå on Saturday so come have a worldwide dance wiv me, it'll be fun.

GIOVANNI MARKS ON JODECI

Post date Tue 26 Oct 2010 3:29 PM

The following is a really fucking funny article by the duke of crev, the king of sav...Giovanni Marks!! Read more of his piece at Street Carnage

"If you are under 25 or were literally raised in a barn on a combine, you may have missed out on the whole “gangsta R&B” thing that took the mid ’90s by storm. As much as people want to canonize R. Kelly for his perverse antics over the last few years, everyone forgets that he coerced a 15-year-old (who out of respect to her memory will remain nameless, but you know who I mean) into running off and marrying him. If you listen to any of the remixes from that time period, it sounds like a soundtrack to a Black Cheerleaders VHS tape.

On the other side of that, you have Jodeci. These dudes were the real deal as far as savages go. The two sets of relatives met because of a girl that they were trying to kill each other over. After remembering that they were all church-going young men and then deciding that it’s about bros before hoes at all times, they decide to form a singing group. K-Ci and Jojo were the main singers, Devante was the producer with the deep voice and Dalvin was the rapper who would secretly write lyrics for everyone else and kick a sweltering seven bars of sexual rap fire every five or six songs.

They got signed to Uptown by a young Diddy (then known as Sean Combs) and were originally touted as a Boyz 2 Men analogue. This all switched after their sophomore record, Diary of a Mad Band, dropped. Their swagger rating (there was no such thing as swagger back then, people would just call you a pimp) was in the ontic sphere and everyone wanted to either be them, fuck them or somewhere in between.

Fuck the fact that the dudes looked like a gaggle of gargoyles and ghouls, they could sing their black asses off. The record came with all sorts of controversy that would now be on TMZ: their drinking and drug use, Devante pulling a machine gun on a girl because she wouldn’t let him have sex with him at his house, them switching managers to Suge Knight at the height of the East Coast/West Coast beef, etc. This all set the stage for their third opus The Party, The After-Party and The Hotel, which was a masterpiece in fuck music. They further cemented themselves into ghetto lore by doing a X-rated video for the 2-Pac song “How Do You Want It” and featuring on all sorts of songs with the motley crew that made up Death Row records in the mid ’90s.

By this time, Jodeci was a unanimous win for the “Only R&B Group That People Actively Gang-Banging Past 32 Years Old Still Have Sex To” award. You heard them in the background on rap records and if you were lucky and really, really observant, you may even hear them coming out of stereo systems in the late-night hours as nefarious dudes were on the creep.

They were truly ghetto superstars who made themselves untouchable with every underhanded alliance they built. When Timbaland, Missy Elliot and Ginuwine came out of thin air in ‘96-’97, more jaws dropped as everyone found out that these were Jodeci’s ghost co-writers and producers for the past couple of records. This only made them MORE MONEY, since they were now looked at as a bunch of black svengalis with gangster ties.

I guess this did nothing for their excessive lifestyles because as the new millennium came in, they went out with a quickness. K-Ci and Jojo dropped a couple of records, Devante did secret production and Dalvin just vanished into a place out of time and space. Fast forward a few years and check out K-Ci and Jojo on stage in Australia in what was originally supposed to be a Jodeci reunion:

Of course people said crack, but these dudes would have sold their passports for a rock or two, so it must not have been that. This brings us back to the trailer for the reality show above. These dudes are getting injections, looking old as hell and basically melting down on camera. While this may have worked for Bobby and Whitney’s whole Hollywood rehab and career re-launch, these dudes are all kinds of S.O.L. in 2010. When you have a cigar wielding mandarin dragon asking you whether you are going to make a record for him or not interspersed with scenes of church and black men going through the throes of substance addiction, you know that you are usually in for some entertainment.

All this does is make me feel really bad. Like I stole $10 from my sick mom to buy weed and the bag I bought was full of oregano and twigs."

Post date Sun 24 Oct 2010 12:17 PM

A WHILE BACK, THESE GLORIOUS INTERNETS IS WAS SO FORTUNATE AS TO COME ACROSS A MAN CALLED DAVE QUAM WHO LIVES AND WORKS IN CHICAGO AND RUNS MY FAVOURITE BLOG FOR HEARING AND GETTING NEW JUKE, FOOTWORK AND BUBBLIN(DUTCH AND CARRIBEAN RAGGA/DANCEHALL DERIVED DANCEMUSIC).

CHECK FOR IT: http://davequam.blogspot.com

I LIFTED THE BELOW POST FROM THERE...ABOUT THE FATHER OF FOOTWORK! BIG UP THE ONE DAVE QUAM, WHO ALSO JUST WROTE THE LINER NOTES FOR A SIIIICK COMPILATION ON FOOTWORK, BANGS AND WORKS VOL 1 COMING OUT ON PLANET MU.


RP Boo - The Isleys

RP Boo was basically the godfather of footwork as a genre of music, taking juke from a 4-on-the-floor house pattern to the bent bass that not only changed the sound forever, but I'm sure changed dancing as well. One of his pivotal moments was when he butchered the pitch of a now deceased Wu Tang member's voice into an even more staggering utterance on Baby Come On and invented what most people think is a Nateism. Truth is Nate was in like kindergarten at the time and due to pre-Youtube era most people outside of Chicago don't know much, if anything about RP. He was also part of House - O - Matics along with several other DJs back in the mid 90s, one of the OG footwork crews. Never really receiving the credit he is due, it is essential that he be included on this blog.
