Back in 1993 when @aimee_morris_1 (& #UrsulaSmith) were my first publicists (& magazines had good journalists who lived & breathed the music) doing press was like Christmas morning for me. Months & years of interview after interview (& I talk & talk so journalists can attest I’ve given them the longest interviews).... Doing movies tho....a whole new ballgame & stadium. I wanna preserve & remember the excitement to this process. May I never get cynical or jaded or bored of this journey. You only get “your first film” once. I mean I guess I kinda enjoyed my first album (we didn’t have our expectations met so for the longest I dripped into a slow lull of disappointments & “preparing for failure” defense mechanisms that kinda marred every aspect of my life honestly until.....last March? I mean even the victories I never savored because “well what happens when this feeling ends?”.....so this is the first project New Me has embarked on that is new & that I’m savoring & (wait for it) “enjoying”? Lol. @summerofsoulmovie in theaters & @hulu July 2nd on @searchlightpics

You have not lived until you meet & talk to #BowLeggedLou about music & specifically his role in it. This was a personal victory for me simply because to be stuck with this nerdy ass voice (I mean yeah everything “Questlove” seems cool now but pre record deal in the heart of West Philly in the crack 80s? Maaaaan listen.)—-having seen mad photos of #FullForce in #RightOnMagazine #WordUpMagazine & #BlackBeat to hear em speak on @SoulTrain & @onbandstand ——I was like “Wow! Nerds Like Me!” (I mean yeah they definitely looked like they whup that ass if you gave em static...but in the most polite way ever lol) just kiddin @thebowlegged1 ——nah man @fullforceworld don’t get hardly enough credit for just being pioneers: pre dating #RickRubin in creating the 4 min rap song format, pre dating any rappers looping a break beat for rap music, being ahead of the game in introducing the world to the queen of #freestyle music @lisalisall77 —-even the meta move in producing @JamesBrown using #JamesBrown beats—collaborations with @KurtisBlow @BobDylan @CherylPepsii #Selena @Backstreetboys @Nsync & yeah of course their move into the world of cinema with the #HouseParty franchise. Loved talking to Lou & hearing all these stories. Part 1 of 2! Streaming Worldwide where you get your podcasts! #QuestloveSupreme!

I’ve made fun of #MustachePeriod James so much I’m now a legit fan. I’m just weird like that yo lol. @chrmcbride found this rare 77 clip recently & even though this isn’t “prime prime” Brown. This will do (yes it’s excellent but I’m judging on a JB scale here) this is the last bit of his 72 band (or what was left) to me to star is #JimmyChankNolen his guitar was ALWAYS killin & just as vital to James as his other starting lineup members. I’ll even give #MelvinParker some props even though it irks me how he is anti #ClydeStubblefield ghosting every snare hit EXCEPT THE 2&4——it’s @JamesBrowns’ Bday today & last year I remember celebrating by kicking off with my mustache period set—-so this clip is only right. I love it/don’t love it really love it hate it ok I love it. See how conflicting this is GODFATHER!!!? 🤣🤣🤣

This is how I know it’s gonna be an awesome Friday: @khalilshukri3000 has come thru with the TREATS. I heard there was footage out there of the ORIGINAL @earthwindandfire lineup (Warner Bros/Sweet Sweetback era) & damn if Khalil found it. WOW! #Repost @khalilshukri3000 ・・・ Y'all don't know how long I've been waiting for this footage to leak. This rare 50-year old clip is the first version of Earth, Wind, & Fire. Maurice and Verdine White were the only holdovers for their classic lineup. The other originals were Sherry Scott (vocals), Wade Flemons (RIP, vibes), Don Whitehead (keyboards), Michael Beal (guitar), Leslie Dayton (trump), Alex Thomas (trombone), Chet Washington (tenor sax), and Yackov Ben Israel (congas). This Warner Brothers lineup of the band were considerably older than the 2.0 Columbia Records era group. These were mostly cats that Maurice jammed with in Chicago's vibrant sixties jazz scene. The cut they are performing here, "Love Is Life," was the second single released off their eponymous 1971 debut album. The song peaked at #43 on Billboard's R&B chart and #93 on the Hot 100. Who could discern from this clip that the group would go on to dominate the charts by mid-decade, racking up gold and platinum plaques. I love the spiritual, jazzy vibe of the first incarnation of the group. Unpopular opinion: the groups sound got just a tad bit too polished for my taste by the close of the seventies. I mean, the horns were engineered to damn near sound like synthesizers (thanks Tom Tom 84 lol). But I digress. A toast to the original elements *clink* #earthwindandfire #mauricewhite

To the child of the P. So much wisdom. I did like 4 drafts & erased them—-because I know we all will collectively share awesome tidbits about his production prowess & creativity. I personally wanna say the song that struck a chord w me on #SexPackets (lol they knew about viagra before WE DID) was #Gutfest89 (“cray-ze-guts-CRAY-ZEEE-guts”) that intro man. It planted a seed. Pre-91 the only “festival” we truly knew about was Woodstock (I hear a rumor there was a black Woodstock in Harlem in 196—nevermind ) LOL——besides the one off Live Aid in 85 & Farm Aid——festivals really weren’t a thing thing in the US (hence the Roots moving to Europe in 93 where there was 700+ festivals all over) so back in 89 in which #ShockG does this “reporter on the street bit” in which he basically describes #lollapalooza some two years b4 it entered into our conversation. I mean yeah back in late 60s w #BillGraham it was some radical shit having #MilesDavis & #GratefulDead on the same bill....but for me to hear Shock’s dream lineup (The Clash/The Who/EPMD/Chick Corea/Herbie Hancock) I was like (18 yrs old back then) “psssssh yeah right they crazy”——but always in the back of my mind: wonder if there will ever come a day in which a lineup as diverse as my record collection could do a show and everyone be aboard: like The Police/Run DMC/Tito Puente/Stevie Wonder/Squeeze/Doug E Fresh & The Get Fresh Crew ——mostly I was like “maybe one day”—-but man, that one song changed my idea of cross genres & expanding my vocabulary. This is a tragic tragic situation. So sad. Rip #ShockG

Ok. Prince became a star. He dominated the American Music Awards. Quincy Jones scoffed at Prince’s rejection of #WeAreTheWorld Prince says “can I contribute a song to the album?” Cool. Huey Lewis is now replacing Prince on the song. The Purple Crew had a celebratory gathering in the suite. Management was relieved for if word gets out Prince was “too good to sing on USA for AFRICA there could be problems in the press. Everyone goes to sleep. Prince is like “wait a min...IM PRINCE! we going to Carlos & Charlie’s (@supermenschshep’s club, & the same place the Charlie Murphy story happens) Prince & crew head to C&C w/o management knowing. Management’s worst fears occurs: Every A Lister is at A&M singing for Africa.....cept Prince. The Pap runs up to the limo, it’s a big night in music so most (those not big enough for We Are The World) are partying in Hollywood. One cameraman bites the bullet & decides to jump inside P’a limo Welp——-they uh....whupped that ass. & other Pap caught it on camera. So now P is an “asshole” & now Quincy is in the hot seat “why didn’t you & michael invite PRINCE!!??” Q told the truth: “He said NO!!!” The heat is on. Prince addresses the whole issue in the “whoa is me” esque “Hello” (the bside to Pop Life)—- It was “cool” but A listers talking about how hard it is doesn’t resonate no matter how hard they try to humanize themselves. Die hards dig it tho. However ——his REAL response was a jawn called “Drawers Burnin” not really a song, just a joke for friends to laugh at (yes there is a studio version ) This night was in 85. His bday jam in St Paul I believe. He premiered “A Love Bizarre” & “Sometimes It Snows In April” During Irresistible Bitch/Possessed they start riffing this: this is one of my fav bootlegs mainly for the hilarity. “Asshole tried to take my picture, I kicked him in the neck (Drawers Burnin) Sue me for a million dollars? I said ’what the heck’ (Drawers Burnin) Good Drawls Hard To Find, The Bad Ones Follow You Home (Drawers Burnin) I Said ‘Just Go Away Babe, & Lemme The Hell Alone’ (Drawers Burnin)” Prime P: maximum funk, create on the spot, even if it don’t make sense it sounds right” Fin.

Man...I’m slowly realizing our return to “new normal” isn’t gonna be this *someone snaps fingers & poof!* process. The steps to it are so small that I doubt any of us will even acknowledge the day is 100% upon us. I don’t feel anxiety but damn if my muscle memory is outta whack. I been traveling since the age of 5. Since 93 I’ll say my plane/bus/train/new city next day activity was like somewhere between 2 days a week (slow week) and 10 times a week (“normal for the Roots”) this one year off has thrown my rhythm off lol——I was the traveling master: miles kept up, knew the ins & out of every airport across the world by heart—-I got to JFK this morning & literally felt like I was in 1st grade when I was 6. I kept saying to myself “you use to do this for a living Ahmir, every aspect of traveling is in your DNA” (for those old enough to understand the reference I walk into an airport & they yell “NORM!”)—-I always dreamt of what my first day back would be like. Lol I dunno this is weird, I can’t believe there was a time in life I could nail 3 cities in one day (the day Things Fall Apart came out we did a crazy 16 city trek in 5 days....I mean it was slowly killing me inside (didn’t know how much my body was screaming “you idiot we need 8-10 hours of sleep EVERYDAY!”)—-so I’m fortunate enough to pivot to a new routine (I sleep now for fun!)—-but now that “we’re back”—-I think I’m wondering aloud..... DO I wanna go back to this?.....just riffing in real time yall don’t mind me. (For those trapped in anxiety I am attesting that airport travel is safe) stay safe. mask up still (yes even with my shots we still gotta mask up) be safe.

In honor of two empires that are somehow connected to the @SummerOfSoulMovie I had the pleasure of directing I leave these clips. Doing press for the SOS I’m often asked about the embarrassment of riches we had to leave on the floor. I tell the story of how the #HarlemCulturalFestival was organized to preserve a moment in time (well 50 years to be exact) to make it to the general public. The lineup was crazy in 69 Sly, Stevie, The Staples, BB, Gladys, Mongo, Barreto, Ruffin, Nina! Etc So many powerhouse performers. They organized a 4 man camera crew to preserve these performances in hopes to make Harlem the festival mecca of course (racism ) it didn’t go down that way. The footage sat for 50 years until we were fortunate enough to tell the story. One curious factoid I learned was the final performance of the festival was not preserved for film: The Miss Harlem Beauty Pageant & a performance by some local teenagers called #ListenMyBrother. At the time it didn’t seem like a major loss. I mean after all Sly, Nina, Stevie, 5th Dimension & Edwin Hawkins had bonafide pop hits—-these were unknown local teens. No big deal...right? Problem was for the Sunday performance the camera crew was double booked & they had to keep a commitment. A local show had gone national on @PBS & the following Monday there was to be a pilot shot. But time was needed for the production people to set up—so they wouldn’t tape the final day of “#BlackWoodstock”——but no fretting, the music act booked were the same teenagers booked for the HCF. So the one performance not captured for #SummerOfSoul was LMB featuring a 19 year old #LutherVandross (respect to the great #FonziThorton #BruceWallace & #ElaineClark legends in their own right)—that pilot wound up being an institution called @SesameStreet. 🤯🤯🤯🤯🤯 man I wish we had their performance. Half this group sang on so many soul songs we worshipped in the following decade. Woulda/Coulda/Shoulda....happy 70th Luther!, happy & Anniversary #SesameStreet #StreetGang @streetgangmovie
