Diddy started a debate about the state of R&B earlier this week. He believed R&B was dead and posed the question, “Who killed R&B?” However, Chris Brown thinks differently and believes R&B is alive and well.
Chris Brown responded to the heated topic by rejecting the notion that R&B is no longer alive. Instead, he accused the music industry of forcing “garbage” on fans and failing to promote genuine singers.
“WHENS THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD A SLOW SONG ON THE RADIO???? NI**AS SAYING R&B IS DEAD… RESPECTFULLY SHUT UP! People now a days want fast food instead of a real meal… DONT BLAME THE REAL SINGERS OUT HERE BEKUZ WHAT CHANNELS DO PEOPLE HAVE TO SEE MUSIC VIDEOS BET DAMN SURE DONT NIETHER DOES MTV. AND THEN THE INDUSTRY BE FORCING SH*T ON THE PEOPLE WHEN THE REAL MUSIC LOVERS KNOW THAT SH*T IS GARBAGE.”
Brown posted Tank’s new album R&B Money’s cover, in which he is featured, to prove his point. “THESE NIAS SAYING R&B IS DEAD??? WATCH YOUR MOUTH NIA… IT AINT DEAD,” he added.
“ALOT OF PEOPLE ARE DEAF TO WHAT Real MUSIC IS… DAMN NEAR EVERY RAPPER WANNA BE A SINGER…”
Brown also criticized Diddy’s claim that R&B needs to be saved. “DONT KNOW WHAT THE F**K PUFF TALKNG BOUT,” he wrote before later deleting the caption.
However, Diddy, who recently started his own R&B label, Love Records, and is getting ready to release his own R&B album, responded after starting a firestorm of controversy. He clarified that he meant no disrespect to anyone and just wanted to bring attention to R&B. Stay tuned to Thirsty for more updates.
