I remember as a younger man how rap music was my favorite genre of all. I definitely dug rhythm and blues too, but hip-hop was my bread & butter. Artists like Lord Finesse, Big Daddy Kane, The Fat Boys, Slick Rick, etc. kept my boom box tape deck on play all day. As mainstream rap music has shifted in another direction these days, I have put soul music in the number one spot when it comes to music choices these days. Most soul music has true feeling embedded throughout the lyrics that can't be duplicated by any other genre in my opinion. The line that used to obviously divide rap and soul back in the day has been greatly blurred now, which makes it even easier for me to make soul music my first choice. I'm getting the best of both worlds really, and you are too because I make it available for your listening pleasure...
