My Life - Pop Life

Written on Friday, September 05, 2008 by Deeze

Today, I have been listening to Mary J. Blige's "My Life" album. I almost forgot how much of a true classic it really is. Mary and Puff were magic back in the day. 1/2 Soul, 1/2 hip-hop. There's not too much in that in music these days. Soul music, and Artist singing/rapping from their soul. You find it sometimes now, but it's very rare. Albums are now made with crossing over to the 'other peoples' station.

Now our artists are selling their souls and going pop.
Remember when POP = Corny and it was an embarassment for a R&B or Hip-Hop artist to cross over? Where's the soul in out music? Where's our soul? I guess the time is over when R&B and Hip-Hop Artist did music that could be classic, and something to be proud of.
Oh well, I guess, I'll listen to 'chant' music and be hypnotized like the rest of the masses.
