    I fell in love with hiphop before R&B and soul but I fell in love with those two genres (and funk as well) thanks to the countless samples used throughout hiphop history. I know my shyt for real. You gotta appreciate and acknowledge the roots of this culture.

    Im only 20 years old so I discovered all the great old music through hip hop where they were sampled.
    But its some of my favorite music, even tho I only discovered it later on :yeshrug:

    Remember when Hip Hop people and R&B people were drastically different?

    Hip hop was the thorough people and the R&B people didn't curse or smoke or any of that shyt. R&B dudes were sensual and shyt

    Now EVERYONE is just ignant ratchet mfs

    The industry doing away with R&B because cacs can't emulate it. Hip Hop is the only black music cacs can emulate as it requires no actual singing talent.

    My favorite summer jam is still "Before I let Go". It just does something to you.

    And even then I don't feel the authenticity or the soul from a Post Malone or an Iggy Azalea. They just reek of fake to me.

    two things:

    1. hip hop would often take a cue from the soul forefathers. at one time james brown was a source of heavy influence, then the isley bros, on into the 80s/NJS/etc so on and so forth. but somewhere along the way, popular "hip hop and r&b" started to blend and the lines became blurred, and in some cases, the roles reversed. where's the soul, is this hip hop or ritualistic chanting? that's when i became disconnected, as it had started sounding soulless, lifeless, dead - the cause, self-cannibalism, feeding off itself, due to the intrinsic life force being abandoned (not just sampling, but overall influence).

    2. never rocked with people like eminem, big picture wise, because of the fallout, because people like this...

    ...eventually/inevitably come in and start trying to redefine sh!t. "and that's what makes it hip hop" [​IMG] ass nikkas.

    I hear more and more amazing RnB and Soul gems from the 70s and 80s than I do new hip hop..haven't bothered with hip hop much for a decade now. I feel its more about drama than art.
    Right now I'm studying Renee and Angela :wow:

    Old school R&B might be better than most of the new music right now, at least it's original. Stuff like this never gets old.
