Now that would be spectacular.
Also, MBDTF is fucking awesome isn't it...
But the man thinks Coldplay are better than The Beatles, and that Soulja Boy is a genius.
This would be terrible. Kanye performing at a hip hop atp? With The Roots as live backing band for any performer without one? Then I'm sold.
the man's a borderline retard
but wouldn't that make for an interesting show? Admit it, c'mon.
it'd never happen in a million years. Could imagine him 'curating' a one off outdoor event... I mean, just the guests on the new album would make good enough support.
though I suspect it's something they wouldn't have the balls to do (possibly rightly so, I'm not sure it'd sell well).
An all hip hop day curated by one of the saner Wu members or The Roots or maybe Company Flow in a United Sounds style would be excellent, though.
I don't think ATP have called their previous ones a 'metal' ATP or a "kill yourself this is so fucking twee" ATP?
I thought the point was to invite prominant artists to curate an event.
If waht you say is true, as in they don't have the balls, its kidn of sickenign that they have had hip hop acts.
Imagine if you were in APC and you jsut read a post like yours "oh wow...I played ATP but apparently I will never be asked to curate...I should never expect such a thing..woe me"
for the sake or argument, let's call a 'hip hop atp' one with a hip hop curator, who is presumably going to be the notionally biggest draw. I'm not talking about ghettoising the music, though I think there's a decent chance that there would end up being other hip hop acts on the bill, just as Godspeed roped in loads of CST bands and B&S have scooped up a bunch of twee Scottish folks. So in that sense, I think it'd be very dfferent, and ATP migt not be able to count on their core indiegraphic.
i.e. The Roots, Wu Tang solo projects, Saul Williams, Subtitle, Jurassic 5/Ozimatli, De La Soul, any of the Solesides, Anticon or Def Jux people, I don't think you'd lose the core crowd.
of '01 over Brooklyn Babylon.
Otherwise I think your list will go down well.
Having said that if shit did go down like this critics like Sasha Frere Jones et al ot would love to rip it to pieces. And he would be right to do so
but I can imagine a hip hop dominated Supersonic as being pretty natural before I could imagine the same thing for ATP
I don't think Jenny and Lisa are really into it.
And I suppose that you could say that DJ Food and The Bug are too. Ish.
but damn sure worked. which is why this would be horrible.
his appearance fee is about 10 times more than the entire budget of ATP.
with the roots as a backing band for whoever wants it as mentioned above!
oh boy my erection
He does have pretty eclectic and reasonably indiegraphic taste... it wouldn't necessarily be a hip hop ATP:
