    This stems from ppl i talk to online and shit. Unless youre a true school R&B fan and only listen to R&B from the 70s back it's impossible to not hear one R&B artist with a rapper producing or on hip hop oriented tracks. I really never got ppl with this mindstate> it"s like ppl i runinto say i hate rap but i love hip hop>>>> i just want to smack them upside the head tell em its the same damn thing

    There are several producers that only go one way...

    Rich Harrison is one of them and he happens to be one of the highest-profile producers in the business right now.

    I can't think of any rappers he's produced for...

    The genres are joined at the hip though... I'll give you that.

    i like rap and i like R&B, but i don't usually like the crossover [R&b sung over hip-hop beats]....i miss r&b with musicians. it just has more energy to me

    That's the reason why I listen to older r&b more than I listen to the new stuff. I'll take some old Stevie, Luther, or Marvin over cats like Usher, Omarion, and Mario anyday. John Legend and Anthony Hamilton are the truth though. I don't mind the r&b tracks over hip-hop sounding beats that much, but I hate the fact that the majority of the r&b singles that come out have a "required" guest rapper on them.

    The genre's been this way for more than a decade though folks.

    which is precisely why my collection is filling up with more music from several decades ago, rather than the most recent.

    I think we're still getting that good music from a handful of artists.
    I'm always looking out for the new Musiq, Bilal, India Arie, Hill, Badu record.

    John Legend was so necessary.
    There are even a couple of other names...
