If you guys think guys think tha Alicia Keys, Jagged Edge and Bubba Sparxx are one hit wonders then you need to listen to more black radio stations. Jagged Edge is on their third platinum CD. I know you guys heard the song "Lets get married" in 1999. Everybody I know who has gotten married since then has played THAT song at their wedding. And everybody should give Jill Scott a listen, shes amazing. People say music is shitty but R&B is putting out some good stuff right now.
"But the truth is, YOURE the weak, and I am the tyranny of evil men. But Im trying Ringo, Im trying hard to be the shepherd....."
Well, that raises the question, is rap/hip-hop a subgenre of rock and roll? I would say that it is. It has as much of a connection to the early days of rock and roll as a lot of other current rock stuff.
