    Doesn't the dude from the Beautiful Idiots podcast always say Michael Jackson is overrated? I know the OP said you gotta have more knowledge beyond the basics (Gaye, Jackson etc) but if you don't even respect the basics...

    You don't have to like all types of hiphop to like hiphop.
    Looking at early def jam it was a lot of rock music that was intertwined, before that disco, hiphop has gone through different phases and taken inspiration from a lot of other things and you don't have to like all to be a hiphop head imo. Same thing goes for other genres, they've taken a lot from hiphop mainly RnB and pop but even "EDM"and rock.

    :ohhh: I never really thought about it this way. I'm 21 so I didn't really get to live out most of 80s & 90s R&B but I used to remember being into artists like Erykah Badu, Usher, Donnell Jones, Case, R Kelly, Jagged Edge, Mary J etc cause my mom used to play them a lot when I was little. Then of course my grandma and aunt listen to a lot of Southern Soul like Mel Waiters, Marvin Sease, and Sir Charles Jones to name a few. I do notice that a lot of cacs do not catch on to R&B references and samples like we do though, then again a lot don't even catch on to previous Hip Hop references.

    Any black person who says they're not into r&b is hella :mjpls:to me.

    If a gun was pointed at my head and I had to make a choice to give up rap or r&b for the rest of my life, I honestly don't know which one I would choose to get rid of.

    They both mean so much to me for different reasons.

    Hip Hop is a culture with rituals rights of passage and tradition. You can't buy your way in to this. You can't out-album me, out-concert me, out t-shirt me or out post me. This is a culture and there's obviously things some of us inherently understand that others just can't grasp.

    You going to Rock The Bells 5 years in a row is nothing to me getting my ass whooped with Al Green playing in the background and cooling down to The Waiting To Exhale soundtrack waiting for my mom to ask if I'm ready to eat.

    That was just one day.

    Hip Hop is a culture brehs and brehettes Don't forget it.
