We have Neo-Soul artists who drop nothing but Soul but when some pale-skinned fat British bi*ch attempts to mimic it people applaud and gush.

A black guy rapping hiphop like it should be rapped now,makes a white think he's a gangster stereotype and wont be as marketable,but in their eyes it doesnt look as bad if a white guy does it and will make them more money. I tried to tell alot of idiots on here this,but they never listen.

these muhfkkas are nuthin bt jokes

He's telling the truth but the sh*t has been this way for some time. There are many artsts still doing real R&B and Soul they just dont sell well. I hate listening to the radio these days and even some people's albums because it has gotten so bad.

I sit back and think now about how each generation dating back to my grandparents has a good age of music for the next generation to go back and get into. But then I think about the music my kids will get to pass on and cant help but feel sorry for any grandkids I may have. This sh*t today is the worst ever.

Its true only reason Adele is hot cause she is white singing "black" or what used to be black music. Jill Scott, Eyrkah Badu or any of those neo soul artist come out with "Rolling in the Deep" they may win grammy for their genre but not album of the year.
Em is not consider the best rapper tho he is great he sold 5x any black artist why....
NFL and NBA both have majority black athletes. NFL way more popular NFL superstars=White(Manning,Brady,Brees,Rodgers) NBA superstars=Black(Kobe,Bron,Wade,KD).
Reason Larry Bird said Nba needed a great white hope, image an AMERICAN BORN white guy with Kobe skills.
MMA vs Boxing same thing. MMA has whites to market Boxing Nope!

Its a racial thing not a Racist thing. Whites just have more disposable income makes sense to me.

People born in the 90s sleep on him. You cant be born before 1990 and not know who Saadiq is and show him mad love on his new music. Well, let me add the only listen to one genre or mainstream music crowd to that also.
