So what’s your favorite type of music?

Take this poll to find out 


Personally I prefer Hip Hop, and R&B over the other genres. Hip Hop is based on rapping, and has more of an aesthetic background, based more on beat, and rhythm, where as R&B is on melody, and harmony. Hip Hop and R&B are influenced by funk, soul, jazz, rock and roll, poets, and writers. The father of hip hop is Afrika Bambaataa

R&B famous influential artist would be Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, Ray Charles, Aretha Franklin, Marvin Gaye, Prince, and many others. 

For today’s music, the two artists I believe are phenomenal are Juice Wrld who does both Hip Hop and R&B. Even if Hip Hop and R&B aren’t your favorite you must admit you enjoy some of his music, if not all.

Juice Wrld “Too Soon…”


 As you can the media loves his music, as well as the teenagers.When you’re sad you can listen to him, or he could hype you up. He has it all. I really do consider him one of the best of today’s rap. You can tell his music is Raw & Pure. Some may say because he does “mumble rap” it makes him less of an artist. Juice know how’s to rap, he was on a radio show in the UK and freestyle rapped for over an hour. His punchlines, and rhyme schemes are amazing, and not to say other artists aren’t, because everyone has their moments, but Juice is just pure, and the media feeds on that. If you have yet to listen to him, you’re missing out. I highly recommend listening to it, right now.

Here is a website that includes most of his music, and his featured music as well. All are amazing.
