The Grammy's, American Music Awards, MTV Music Awards, BET Awards Soul Train Awards...just don't do it for me anymore. I used to love all the awards shows. I used to watch videos by the hour and then sit out on the stoop in front of my apartment building with my crew and talk about them for hours more.
Today's music just don't...Well I ain't feeling it. I still listen to Hip-Hop a little..mainly when I'm Channel surfing in the ride or when I'm working out...but other than that, naaa.
I do not fuck with R&B at all because...well Chris Brown won R&B artist of the year...so what does that tell you?
The good R&B... Anthony Hamilton, Letice, Music Soul Child, Kem, India Arie and groups like them never get any air play. These cats make good music but I guess it ain't about making "good"music now-adays. R&B has turned into the "let me hit it all night and then fuck your friends too" music.. So naaa. Ain't gonna be able to do it.
I listen to more Rock, Pop and Reggae now than I do traditional "Black music". I'm not saying that this genre of music is any better, but right now I am so sick of "Black Music" that it is a much welcome change.
What happened to "let's work together" or "I love you" or "I only want to be with you" or "you are my lady" music? Why is it all "in the club", "meet me in the bathroom stall", "let me see that ass bounce", "I want to be a babies mama or side chick" music?
I'm getting old man.
I guess I should shout out a RIP to Whitney Houston..
There will never be a voice like hers again. My heartfelt condolences go out to her family. Especially her daughter.
