The best R&B was in the 80's are you kidding me? R&B was better before the 80's. In the 2000's, I don't even call this stuff R&B at all. Get real Aaron.

I'll take Aaron Hall from the 80's over just about anything out there, today. Bring it on, Aaron!

He wanna talk about theives! I believe this nigga is doin a toothless rendition of DMX. Just stick to takin a back seat to them young bucks aaron, we were doing fine when R.Kelly "stole" your swag and we'll be fine watching Trey Songz "steal" it too. They're obviously doing better job with your swag anyway

Aaron Hall just mad that The Teddy Graham, Billy Goat Gay Songz, Fistopher Brown, Go-Go, and the likes are relevant now. STFD! Go fix your teeth look like you've been snacking on a box of lit fire crackers!

Since you wanna run your mouth explain why your dumbass let Guy fall apart.

THE BEST R&B WAS IN THE 60's and the 70's.....

All these fake ass don't know how to sing bitches of today, Beyonce, Ashanti, Ciara, Janet,Alicia, Britney, Katy Perry, Jlo,Fantasia sounds like a wounded bird in heat, and the damn list goes on and on.

ALL of these bitches need machines to edge out the bad parts of their singing.

MARIAH, WHITNEY, CELINE DION, JENNIFER HUDSON,CHRISTINA AGUILAR,REGINA BELL, AND THE BEST BITCH OF THEM ALL IS DIANA ROSS.

Unfortunaly this is my generation of music so the best rnb to me was the funk in the 70's 80's and 90's today Rnb (well at least mainstream) is trash. I like the man who speaks the truth. However I really didn't see how R kelly tried to jack his style can someone explain it to me? I always thought R kelly was trying to be like the isley brothers.

So true Arron these young people don't know really R&B music.

That's why aint nobody listenin' to this bullshit niggas are croakin' out these days. No talent whatsoever. So we remain diggin' in the crates. Good music is timeless anyway, so this legion of whack niggas out here today may as well be the same bullshit that fell by the wayside throughout time.

R&B is so watered down today, in part, cuz these clowns spend too much time doin' bullshit vocals over hip-flop tracks. Which is same reason much of hip-hop became hip-flop. Even Eminem allowed Rhianna to yell "EH!" all over his tracks. Sell out ass muthafuggas. I honestly cannot remember the last time I've listened to FM radio or bought an R&B album that wasn't some old shit. Has to be at least 7 or 8 years.

I dunno know why Aaron Hall is talking about swagger-jacking, when Guy was pretty much a remixed version of The Gap Band. Tell me I'm lying.

But anyhoo, he did have a point even if he did sound crackish about it.

ms mac said...

^ Exactly! And how can somebody who needs to get on a dental plan tell somebody else to get on a weight plan? Not to mention, this clown talking about what Dream did was wrong but this fool didn't even wanna claim his own child that he had with that video broad (Gloria somebody) who was in the Big Pimpin video.

When "GUY" hit in the late 80's, their music was an instant hit! Aron hall singing lead vocal with Teddy Riley supplying the beats and producing. They were fresh and had a new sound.

But after their first album, Teddy Riley began singing more and more on the tracks. And everybody knows that Teddy Riley can sing worth a damn! Teddy also began producing for a lot of other artist and not focusing on "GUY" But being that "GUY" was pretty much "Teddy's band" Aron hall couldn't do nothing about it so he quit (along with his brother).

Aron Hall probably only generated 1 or 2 hits when he went solo. Although the brother can sing, He was nothing without Teddy Riley producing.. Aron Hall still had major Swag at the time.

When R Kelly first came out as a solo artist, he swagger Jacked the Hell out of Aron Hall! He sounded like him and even shaved his head like him! He even went Nasty like him. But in the end, R kelly made a name for himself and Aron Hall fell by the wayside..

Oh, come on, Aaron Hall, we know what the deal is. Trey Songz bit off R. Kelly, who bit off you, and you bit off Charlie Wilson, who bit off Stevie Wonder. But he did have some good points into what he was saying. R&B music is awful today. I just listen to R&B from the 80's and 90's.

Sane said...

8:11 - Gloria Velez, I remember that! Yeah, Aaron thinks some of us have forgotten that in his "hey dey", his personal life was had more holes in it than a slice of swiss cheese. He has multiple kids by multiple women, alledgedly was accused of verbally and physically abusing Gloria and allowed his own diva antics to f*ck up a good thing = GUY. While I agree with him that R & B of today is most certainly not as classic and soulful as the previous decades, Aaron, lets not act like you aren't just as guilty of doing the same things these cats are doing right now.

If i had teeth like a crossword puzzle i'd keep my opinion to myself.

he sounds very crackish, but the BROTHA CAN SING. The R&B cats today aren't realy vocalists. Sisqo was a great singer but he messed up his career badly.

Was he drunk or something? Nobody even knew he had an album coming out but him. That has got to be the most attention anyone with a camera has paid him in 20+ years. Poor dude still hanging on to his New Jack days. Another washed up has been...

I listen to the old school station myself. The songs today have no real lyrics. It is all sex up songs with a different non-singer. I was just singing Johnny Gill's "My, My, My" yesterday and wondering why no one can have good songs and voices today.

Y'all went in on Aaron's teef(I know) so hard, I had to take a look. His teef look rotten. The brother has no funds for a dental plan. Guess those publishing royalties from Guy are a bit slow in coming.

Back in the day, we had fluff too. But most of the good music, we got off the top. You could listen to the radio and go pick up the tape/LP just off of the playlist. Nowadays, you have to dig deep to get a full cd of quality music. And few people have that kind of time or energy. That's why movies and video games are making mad profits but the music industry is moving closer to extinction.

First of anyone who says that Trey Songz, Chris Brown, Ciara, Cassie, Beyonce, Keyshia Cole & Alicia Keys (yes I went there even though I listen to them)can sing is out of their mind and smokin on crack?! I am from this generation and I am sorry but the state of R&B and HIp Hop is going south and will die a hideous death unless someone stops and changes the game. Enter R. Kelly, his new album Love Letter, may not be his greatest album of all time but the purpose of making this album was to steer away from all the bullshit that has been on the radio for the past 5 years. Now I am from this generation and grew up in the late 90's and early 00's , but I was fortunate to have parents who listened to both hip hop and R&B and introduced me to their generation of music and I have to say that the Golden era of R&B is from late 60's to mid 80's. Due to the fact that most of the artists singing like, Deniece Williams, Minnie Rippleton, Earth, Wind, and Fire, Luther Vandross, Anita Baker, Regina Belle, Angela Winbush, The Dramatics, The O'Jays, lets not forget Marvin Gaye and my big chocolate bear Teddy Pendergrass, and every artist during their era could sing their butt off. Your talent made you a star not your sex appeal. For those who are of my generation go to Youtube and listen to their songs. You will know them because most of the songs you hear today have been sampled from all the artists that I mentioned. Furthernore in order to get R&B and Hip Hop back we need to get rid of the current producers who are creating and destroying artists and music.
