Was listening to 12 play the other day album is overrated. Theres too many R&B greats for Kellz to be hands down king

Can I ask a question?

Pop music by a black guy = considered R&B by society?

With that said, I think Marvin could give Kells a run for his money.

If we're talkin longevity, catelouge, ability to diversify and change w/ the times, Kells would get my vote.

I love how dudes laugh at the suggestion of Kells but don't have a suggestion of their own. *Points at NobleKane*

I used to go on these rants when kids used to make the "best rapper EVAR" and "best song EVAR" threads.

Stupid @@!$. How can anyone feel qualified to discuss the best R&B artist EVAR when you ain't been around forEVAR to even have that kind of a grasp on the genre to intelligently discuss this?

Get the %!$+ out of here with this. He's your favorite. Not the greatest. Learn the difference.

"Step In The Name Of Love" timeless is laughable. I always thought that %$%$ was corny. If you had said "I Wish", "I Believe....", or even "Your Body's Calling" on some new school %$%$, your argument would have had far more credibility.

Marvin, Stevie, Smokey, Donny. Not sure what you'd call Prince or Michael. %$%$, you said artist. Mary J. Blige would give Kells a run. Aretha Franklin.

I'm sure I could find more if I thought about it. But R&B was also dominated by groups for a while.

It's a shame that 2 albums in, a guy like D'Angelo was damn near flawless, then fell off the face of the earth.
