    The problem is a lot of hip hop now is "re-popularizing" older R&B through samples. So anyone can fake the funk now thanks to the easily identifiable samples.

    Breh, I had sooo many songs I wanted to post but I had to hurry up and make my point cuz when I'm high I lose my train of thought. I got so many cuts, but I had to see if thecoli knew where I was coming from


    nah I just gotta get everything off all at one...keep it thoro.

    yep. the r&b and soul is the generational connection that links your grandparents music to your parent's music to yours. without the soul everybody wants to know why the new music is so trash. no soul link. no soul no groove no connection back to what's real. it's not just that the newer artists are trash, the newer listeners also suck and don't actually know what sounds good. if your parents were playing the Ramones or ACDC or some shyt and you grew up on that then come in think you can determine what sounds good for hip hop, you fukking can't. all these new listeners with no roots in r&b and soul are ruining the music because they suck at hearing good shyt!

    :heh:
    and these kids will never know...more than them not knowing good hip hop...they'll never have the soul connection.

    thank God for Breezy
    :wow:
    that nikka is a unicorn and the last of a dying breed. that's why they want him out so bad

    There's a reason Snoop's idols have been the likes of George Clinton and Bootsie Collins.

    Facts....plus, there is no hiphop w/o R&B in it's various subtypes (disco, funk, soul). Those genres are it's foundation.

    I'm a 90s baby but everything you're saying is still the truth. When I was growing up we had Sunshine Anderson and Ruff Endz, Profyle, Tweet, Blaque. It's crazy how we really don't have any r&b. Beyoncé and Rihanna are hybrids but they're considered universal. It's like the whole genre got wiped out with the exception of Trey Songz and Chris Brown. I have hope for acts like Khalid and Ty Dolla Sign but even they seem to get overshadowed. White people NEVER embraced R&B. I never heard a white person who was into R&B...but I know plenty who are into hip hop. It's probably even rawer then hip hop from a pure musical standpoint and they just don't know what to do.

    All the good babymaking music that came out over the years and white people still wanna fukk to Radiohead or Dave Matthews Band.

    man, my first favorite song was Vanessa Williams "Save The Best For Last."

    song was so beautiful...
    :mjcry:


    I remember being like 3-4 waiting to hear it on the radio at some point

    I remember liking Diamonds and Pearls by Prince and Been Around The World by Lisa Stansfield...some of my earliest memories were riding in the car and hearing those records on the radio. R&B/Soul was definitely my first favorite kind of music and also holds some of my earliest memories.

    OP made some good ass points:salute:

    Im a 90s kid so i grew up hearing Luther, Jeffrey Osborne, Babyface, Alexander O'Neal, Anita Baker....

    Lack of that feeling is a big reason why cacs in the industry love to push emotionless zombie music first n foremost
