Show #16 - "The Ballad of Omar," Rick James and the Times We Are In (Guest: Dapper Dan Midas)
By Queue Points
September 9, 2021
This week on Queue Points, DJ Sir Daniel and Jay Ray invite prolific musician DDm to join in for a rich chat. In 2020 DDm released his album "The Ballad of Omar," and with the recent sudden passing of Michael K. Williams we explore how the character "Omar" from The Wire has shaped his work. We dive into the new Rick James documentary, and have some Queue Points chat about our current state of the world. You don't want to miss this show.
When you mention a year in a song, it’s a final act. That song is now forever associated with the year you reference. Also, it can date a song that, for the artist, is an eternal piece of art. It’s our belief that there’s really no down side to including the year in a song, it actually serves as a memorialization of sorts.
With the 2022 release of Joey Bada$$’s 2000 the Queue Points crew began reflecting about songs that featured a year in the title.
So the numbers are in, and you watched over 10,000 minutes of Queue Points on Facebook! We are so grateful, and for this wrap up we decided to compile moments from your favorite shows to end 2021. Did your favorite make the list?
