    No lies told :hubie:

    My mom would dabble in 70s and 80s R&B every now and again but my step dad was the one who really put me on. James Brown, Isley Brothers, Teddy P, Barry White, Gap Band, Prince, Stevie, Curtis Mayfield, Patti, Aretha, too many to name. So when I eventually did get into ATCQ, Busta, Nas, Outkast, Pac, Biggie, etc those samples had me like :gladbron:

    For example

    Rep back to Zero sir. Great Thread and 100% on point.

    Negged for anyone not knowing Quiet Storm music too. :birdman:

    Old School RnB, James Brown, etc. are a huge part of our experience as black people and it's influence on Hip Hop regardless of the area you grew up is fact. nikkaz from the North, South, East, Midwest ALL have those influences in the hip hop that came from there areas.

    The earliest hiphop people were all r&B heads. You're talking more the OG r&b heads before there was a hiphop.

    Nah

    During the 90s the R&B crowd and hip hop crowd were completely different

    R&B dudes back then were considered the softer type

    Now everyone is hard and a gangsta

    Interesting thread. I did not grow up in a house where R&B or Soul were played. But when I started getting into music around 10-11, the radio (KMEL and WILD 94.9) played both R&B and hip hop and you would see that same mix and balance on the video shows, whether it be on BET or CMC. So I fukked with both, had Jodeci and Mary J tapes, had a bunch of tapes with shyt recorded off the radio, but heavily trended toward hip hop. Then as I got older, going back to the source material was :wow:

    I never thought about the fact that for some of the kids my age growing up, they would be recognizing those samples from shyt they were hearing at home :ohhh:

    I always considered my introduction to hip hop to be organic since I didn't grow up around white people, and I listened to the same shyt everyone else in my neighborhood did (at least initially).
    My introduction to a lot of that old school shyt was hearing what the GOAT producers in the 90s did with it :wow:
    Although that doesn't apply to the GOAT producer :havdahell:since he was manipulating the hell out of those samples to where they were unrecognizable :havarmscrossed:
    But for other brehs it might have been similar to when I heard that Rakim Book of Life in 97 for the first time and realized how much of his lines had been used :PPicard:
    I wonder if I appreciate it a bit more since most of it was, to my ears, original material?
