Jahmeek may now think that Midnite is overrated, but below is what he had to say BEFORE getting into a pissy fit over issues like "No Ital food", "No dubbing out" "Management Issues (that he has refused to discuss other than to constantly dis Kufunya) and wanting Midnite to perform in AZ in 04 (i think that was the year) at 03 rates.

Indeed. But if you're going to call Midnite out for revising their band members as you so arduously did last May, then you had better believe that I am going to call YOU out for revising YOUR views of Midnite. Today, you are saying Midnite is overrated, and that is your absolute right to do so, but back in the day it was a different tune you were singing. And judging from the massive family that still follows them from town to town in these parts, just as you did in the summer of 04, most of the folks still love their music.

@ jb, a "hater" as described in websters (j/k) is someone who speaks negatively of another persons success or accomplishments because of jealousy or spite. However, some people like to apply the term to anybody who disagrees with them. for example

Midnite fan: "I love midnite, they're live show are awesome"

Hater: "naw, they're style is too slow, they put me to sleep"

Midnite fan: "AAAwwweeee, your a HATER"

I'm a big Midnite fan by the way...Peace

i am in a reggae band that gigs in SoCal & alot of soundmen have given us bad vibes just because of Midnite. Management & soundmen have then apologized stating that Midnite has played their venue & shown them all sorts of weird & negative & godly vibes and that it turned them off to reggae musicians. this HAS happened at a few venues. one time there was a small fight, well actully just one guy being physical with security during the performance & Vaughn runs off the stage & is outside talking all kinds of **** like he's never seen a fight before. what a whiner. whine all you want when someone eats fastfood or lusts after a woman. big f-ing deal. just keep whining like i am right now. now its time to start my band called 'Daylite'. Remember massive, what color are our bones? which color contains all colors? f-ing race driven whiners.

Baldy,

Not true, plants can produce energy without daylite. Check "The Secret Life of Plants" for another view.

BTW, I love Midnite, and look forward to more releases. Current and Jah Grid are great albums, IMO. The one before that, LET LIVE, is one of I favorites.

Re: Midnite over rated & over paid*
March 23, 2006 08:58AM
Daylite- why are getting into a whole light vs dark spiel? Some things are light -some things are dark- so what? I'm not sure why midnite chose that name, but i have a guess. In our culture and many others lightness or whiteness is associated with goodness, purity, etc and darkness with negativity. That particular line of thinking can be a bit troubling if you happen to have dark skin. They are probably just trying to focus on or point out the good qualities of darkness as a counterbalance. So I don't think you need to take that the wrong way. Darkness needs a little appreciation too- we do need that thought in our society, I think

some things you like dark: rich loamy soil, so good for growing plants, rich dark chocolate, you morning coffee (if you drink it-try green tea instead, though) ..........

" that it turned them off to reggae musicians."
Although I don't know anything about your allegations here I just wanted to say -how fair is is to judge all reggae bands by the behavior of one band, anyway? Geez. Sounds like that is a problem with the folks at those particular venues.

" f-ing race driven whiners." That's a really ugly statement.

Whining: Best Ways to Get Jah Meek to Stop

Jah Meek whines for a variety of reasons -- to wear us down, to make us feel annoyed, for reassurance and out of pure habit. Whatever the reason, whining is unattractive at best. If whining is an issue, then the way you are dealing with it isn't working -- for you or your Jah Meek.

The following acronym, STOP, will help remind you how to respond -- rather than react -- to Jah Meek's whining:

Slow down your reaction time. Don't throw his hypocrasy back in his face until you feel calm.

Take responsibility for your end of the equation. Ask yourself, "Does this steakhouse DJ really deserve my attention -- is my response feeding into Jah Meek's tendency to whine?"

One-liners should be prepared in advance. I like to respond to Jah Meek's whining by saying, "I will discuss this with you once you put down that filet and stop your gibber jabber."

Plan ahead. To help me be firm, I remind myself that it's in Jah Meek's best interest to hear the words "lightweight promoter' .

Remember, habits are hard to break, and it will take creative planning, confidence in your little one's ability to make positive changes and time before any progress is made.

TIP: Ending whining is only part of the problem. At the same time we need to teach Jah Meek more effective ways of communicating with us and with others.

Did jesus build master pieces of carpentry for free?
i dont ovahs why people think because someone progresses knowledge of self thru a higher power, that they instantly become undeserving of being paid..
all i keep hearing is how much overpaid Midnite band is.
they provide a skill, it is their trade, they teach and they uplift...
do not motivational speakers charge $250,000 to speak to room fulls of business hopefuls for the same 3 hour time slot??
$4k-$12k from a band that commands 400-600 people fulling up your venue is hardly overpriced. (shaking my head at the so-called "reggae lovers" on here.)
Re: Midnite over rated & over paid*
March 23, 2006 11:05AM
OK Danny, I'm with ya. I kinda thought you woke up on the wrong side of the bed, while your neighbors were crack-piping, and you brought the vibez here. I thoughts exactly, "well, when ya brek it down, ya get MORE fi ya money wit Midnite...".

and yes the empress and I are bright as daylight. Our 10th anniversary re-vows went OFF and saw the coming of Spring. Equality and Respects a must.

Daylite, you need to put faith in Nature. She's so amazing. Plants and Animals can thrive without light, though a balance seems preferred. Check the book I mention above. Ain't no light in the womb, yet life flourishes.

Below is a list of the top professional baseball earnings (the 9 figure, not finger originals):

$153,379,882 - Barry Bonds
$130,890,502 - Kevin Brown
$127,687,500 - Randy Johnson
$126,027,000 - Alex Rodriguez
$124,845,000 - Greg Maddux
$123,568,000 - Sammy Sosa
$121,001,000 - Roger Clemens
$120,159,654 - Ken Griffey, Jr.
$119,010,002 - Gary Sheffield
$110,426,002 - Mike Piazza
$110,363,431 - Larry Walker
$108,765,000 - Jeff Bagwell
$108,032,727 - Manny Ramirez
$105,569,000 - Pedro Martinez
$103,392,167 - Mike Mussina
$103,145,653 - Tom Glavine
$101,600,001 - Bernie Williams
$100,405,001 - Mo Vaughn (retired)


Now do you say Vaughn and Ron are overpaid for what they do and share? think about it. Someone said Vaughn has the bling.

Yuma, az, for true "Current" is a sign of the times. Nuff goodness to come from from these guys.

Yeah mon, VB gots enough Bling to eat, so......

Re: Midnite over rated & over paid*
March 23, 2006 12:03PM
Well weak,

The point is that salary is relative. I for one think Midnite is not overpaid. I threw out the 9 figures that some make as baseball income to shed light that the 2-20K the band wants to play, divided by the entire entourage, the lodging, food, travel expenses, promotion, etc... is not unreasonable. In this case, I feel most reggae musicians or messenjahs are drastically underpaid in $$$ terms. I'd prefer to see the messengers that guide humanity to righteousness being paid these figures. As for non-commercial reggae promoters? I don't see your point here. I didn't say a word about promoters. I just think in realtive terms, most reggae musicians are UNDER paid for the good works they SHARE.

"midnite isnt all that", says you. I say Midnite is all that. To each I own. Did anyone here say something about having to roll out the red carpet for Midnite? Whereever dem walk? You keep putting out these unkinda words, when it was your dealing with the management that led to the results you suffer. I think most Midnite fans realeyes that the band is human and we give thanks for the inspiration JAH has given.

Again, to each I own, what you call a Preston mistake because he treated you and family like chit, most likely was a positive move on Preston's part. Perhaps your attitude had something to do with this dealing? If you act anything like you do here online, I'd say you were a big part of that mistake. And if you say this Preston mistake cuts on the band vibe in general, what do you think about all your negative Midnite posts cutting on the band vibe in general? Your representation of the roots message is doing more damage than anyother representation I've seen for a long while. Who's hustling who, Meek?

>thats great ras hope the best for dem .
.have not heard album yet last LP i got was called let live & best track was a song titled ' all about what you do' featuring pressure & massiah who i consider made the song what it is more than it has to do with midnite not to mention the missing band members just from that album.
>going back to title its all about what you do not what you say' which is alot how i feel about this whole topic threaded. vaughn seems to be saying alot of tings ...

here is my take (like anyone cares)
it's cool to like midnite...the problem is that many midnite fans~are actually kind of fanatic & can't take it that others don't share the intensity of their views. alot of ya'll come off holier than thou---this is just based on the responses...i had someone check the threads who know nothing of reggae or who's who--and that was their immediate reaction.
yeah..jahmeek may irritate ppl to death sometimes, but truth be told..i don't think he would hold a grudge this long if there were not some grain of truth to what he says. no one here ever wants to believe that almighty midnite or vaughn or management ever do anything wrong. alot of folks on here won't say if they even feel a tinge of truthfulness in the statements...probably 'cause they want to make money offa midnite...that's their bizness..jahmeek..seems to me he just don't really give a chit & is more about principle with him. each to their own...i am ready to call for NEXT

u think preston or kufunya would contact jahmeek & try to make amends or work something out? see..that there would show how much they are truly bout livity & what not...being the bigger man..or woman whateva & trying to work these things out..

even if the mgmt not at fault--it just seems that he/she/they would or could make a step to make things brighter for all involved...only one side of the story..true..

Dear Jahmeek

It appears that somehow our music offended you. Please forgive us. We are sending you a lifetime pass to all future festivals on the face of the earth.

Its not a "free" pass, but it is an emotional pass to let go of the negativity and enjoy yourself wherever and whenever you are. You can allow yourself to experience life in a positive light and learn to communicate with other humans in a way that won't force them to view you negatively.

In order to accept this gift, please go to a mirror and speak the following words:

"I'm a good person and I love myself"

Repeat 5 times. If it doesn't take, repeat again. And again. And again.....

Midnite, the Band

yeah mon, here's I reply (like anyone cares):

I haven't seen the positive fanatics here. To eye, the Midnite fans have not come off holier than though. The opposite sometimes Eye see, where Jahweak talks about red carpet expectations and tings. We don't bring dem tings. We see Jah current flowing through Vaughn and Ron and apprecilove the experience. We often say thanks and feel lucky for living in these times. Not sure who you choose to check the threads, could have been a Bush and war supporter??

"it's cool to like midnite...the problem is that many midnite fans~are actually kind of fanatic & can't take it that others don't share the intensity of their views. alot of ya'll come off holier than thou---this is just based on the responses...i had someone check the threads who know nothing of reggae or who's who--and that was their immediate reaction."

Appears that jahweak is the only one that is holding a $$$ grudge. A $$$ dealing changed his views on the "Music". Has influenced his ears and heart. Most say $$$ is the root of all evil, I think it starts with jealousy. But $$$ is a monkey too. Usually they run hand in hand. Most of we never make $$$ offa midnite. "alot of folks here" do not make money offa midnite. Seems only weak is concerned about making, or saving $$$.

"alot of folks on here won't say if they even feel a tinge of truthfulness in the statements...probably 'cause they want to make money offa midnite...that's their bizness..jahmeek..seems to me he just don't really give a chit & is more about principle with him."

ras danny, so the midnite album is their best seller?

and matisyahoo is the second best seller?

;-)

catch my drift star?

anyway, c'mon meek drop it and move on. youre just making yourself look weak.

i dont know the details but the bottom line is, its business. they want x amount; if youre not prepared to pay it, go to the next one and dont disgrace yourself in public because then no one else will want to deal with you either. the world doesnt revolve around midnite but for sure it doesnt revolve around you.

"whine all you want when someone eats fastfood or lusts after a woman. big f-ing deal"

well baldhead. ill tell you whats wrong with it..for those of us choosing a more righteous way of livity, its is a big f'ing deal!! If you have any knowledge at all, Rastafari livity is about cleansing yourself of the mind of all things impure,as well as many other things InI can reason upon!! If your wack crowd down in Socal cant handle what they have to say, that too bad!! For all of us others, we LOVE midnite, and cant wait for them to be back so they can chant down BabyWRONG some more!! More Fyah pon de wicked!!

Also give thanks to Garden of Delight for her reasoning, more love

Jah Guidance everytime~

Sure there may be some grain of truth to what Jahmeek is saying, but for me atleast that's not the point. Does not JAH teach forgiveness is a virtue? It's been what, two years now? And Jahmeek is still on here smearing midnite at every possible chance he gets. I would think for someone that gives themself a name like JahMeek this type of childish behavior would be beneath them. It's fine if you don't like midnite, it's fine if you want to express that you don't like their music, but the personal insults and slander about their management is just old.

nothings wrong with lusting over a woman. thats how we exist. i think fastfood is bullshit also, but it seems too many heads are trying to be righteous. just BE righteous. you can be righteous and eat fastfood. and who says what rastafari livity is?? selassie sure didnt! selassie said he was not god among other things. he was a murderer. how u think he made it to the throne. and about this ''wack crowd'' in socal... are you an idiot or what? generalizing like that...

If you actually bought the album you would see that it is a midnite-I grade collaboration, so understandably most of the music was played by Tippy, Kenyatta and the I Grade crew. And if you looked a little further and read the insert you would also see that all of you so called "missing" band members, implying Dion, Phil, and Abijah, I would assume, play on at least one track anyways.

Re: Midnite over rated & over paid*

Iah think the reason Kufunya doesn't respond or try to defend herself or the band is that she only deals with uplifting ites of reasoning. Everytime Iah have been in her presence i have recieved nothing but good vibes and i'm sure she does not want to get wrapped up in negative grudge fiasco babble. Pure speculation based of ience hypothesis though.

see..this is what i am saying..why did you have to get defensive & talk like that? This is another example of what alot of midnite fan base is..the rest of your comment would have been cool--but you felt the need to bash. there was no need for that...and for the record the benjamin brothers do have a reputation of being difficult to work with...they should bring their own sound man & stop harassing everyone else with looks of disgust.

*remember--i said i did like them...just not as much now as opposed to before--but my feelings on them in regards to what i am saying has always been the same*

yeah mon, ya evah hav ya OWN dealin's wit dem "benjamin brothers"? reputation, or rumor is not always da TRUTH... we hav NEVER had any ill experiences workin wit dem here in Ptown... our soundmen dem ALL have da highest respect fi dem! is deh a thing wrong wit a band wantin ta get dem sound JUST THE WAY dem WANT IT?

--> with looks of disgust

looks of disgust, really mon! mithinks dat ya can neveh know what a "look" mean lest ya da One givin it, ya can only INTERPRETATE what it MIGHT mean... looks nah seh nuh'in, words are used usually to transmit conversation, to exchange thoughts and express meaning... what ya seh'in is commonly referred to as a "thinking error" - when ya think ya know what a next man conveys in a "look" or what a next man be "thinking"...

Easy yeah mon,

You thought that was bashing? Wow! Without taking offense, my point was that the person checking the thread may be biased in any direction. We all have our views when we read a ting, so I could have picked someone at random that feels quite the opposite. Telling us what one person thought is not the truth for all of we. Seen. That's all. (read carefully, I am not saying Midnite is so wholly. I nah worship Man, seen. Vaughn and Ron, and Kufunya and Preston, just more idren. None a we are perfect. Who is like Jah? For the record, why are you telling us that the benjamin brothers have a reputation of being difficult to work with. the thread has to do with Midnite being over rated and over paid, that's all.

Do you think Midnite is Overrated and/or overpaid for what they do and give?

I suppose if Midnite were to travel with their own sound man then the $$$ price must increase a bit, too. Good suggestion though.

ic done

How many times has Midnite played in California the last 3 years?
I would safely guess 50 - 75 times. More than any other place on earth I bet. And why do they come here..... Because people go nuts and sell out the place. California is Midnite's bread & butter, once they found out we were willing to pay the price is only going to rise.

I personally would prefer to see just about any JAMAICAN reggae artists rather than midnite but ...... that's because all of midnites songs sound the same to me.

I celebrated the day they found a way to end their songs and not just jam for 3 hours
