you know, doesn't have to be one word i guess but fairly succinct
i suggested that on this very forum once and got called racist. nevermind
they're that threatened they need to team up?
the exact point was i said something about GZA being the only live hip hop i had ever seen and then someone wee'd in their pants
i just remembered this whole thing where someone said i was racist and just wanted to check that i'm still not. i just don't understand hip hop and rap and stuff
Hip-hop and rap are the same thing, let's start there. What do you want to know?
It doesn't really, at least from their origins. One features singing and one features rapping. R&B originally came from blues, rap came from emceeing over disco music.
classic r&b and modern r&b have a very different sound.
Modern stuff can def blur the lines with rap ie guest rap verse on r&b songs and even the beats can be very similar.
One of my favorite artists ever does both:
Devin the Dude - Do what you wanna do
they're not though?
They are used interchangeably When talking about the actual meaning of the words then yeah I guess there is a difference. Hop-hop can reference the more overarching culture while rap is just the specific act of rapping.
here it is in all it's glory. was meant to be a bit of a tongue in cheek dig, but whatevs. theo's input is lol-able.
Yeah c__r its time to learn a thing or two about music.
I'm sure you know plenty of other stuff.
i was hoping it had faded from public memory a little bit because i wanted to know what people genuinely thought about it.
you already got 'under' the question in the first reply. he makes what is widely called r&b. he incorporates elements of soul, funk, hip hop & dance music, but essentially doesn't veer far enough away from the r&b template or what other r&b singers are doing to warrant a new genre.
there seems to have been a little confusion over whether we need a new name for something just cos indie kids like it now.
I wonder what he is covering up on his forehead
unless it doesn't have an eyelid and he needs to keep it protected
silly term though, just made me titter a bit
but HTDW doesn't sound like FO to these ears.
Than the music itself. I know lots of people who listen to both HTDW and FO (and Miguel probably) because it gets bummed by pitchfork, but practically nothing else resembling R&B.
Cant deny that.
Stellar work to get "Cats and cats and cats" to be followed by "... and Oceans".
