The first song i ever learned from anybody was R kelly Slow dance. then we got 12 play to tp-2, and when he dropped CF and HP/USM I was like this isnt R. Kelly. But now that I'm older My favorite songs of his are the songx with meaning and not the ones about sex. I hope from here on out since He and his fan base its getting older is that he touch us with those meaningful songs with a little carnal here and there.
    This is what i'm saying !!!

    Anyone one else feel as we get older.....rob is singing to a younger crowd ?

    A little bit yeah, but then again he makes songs like "Elsewhere" and "Religious." Plus, he's always been a R&B thug hangin with rappers and shit. I feel that element has always been there in his music.

    DU was the exception I think. vast majority of the tracks on there were geared toward younger people. I gotta admit I loved a lot of it.

    love this conversation. First Kellz album I bought was also R. Kelly and I became a fan because of Down Low (Nobody Has To Know) and I Can't Sleep Baby (If I). I appreciate all his music, even if I'm not big on the hip hop/rap crap he does at times with collabos and stuff. But he makes it most of it sound real good.

    I've said this before and I'll say it again. R. Kelly doesn't have to make another song ever again because he's given me enough good music to last me a lifetime. So I have a real enjoyment of going back to listen to TP-2.COM, R. Kelly, R., Happy People and any other of his older albums at anytime.

    I refuse to bash him, like others, that don't like the direction some of his music/videos. I enjoy and appreciate anything I get from Kellz at this point. So yeah, I'm enjoying Rob a lot more as I'm growing older (almost 29).

    i respect him at his best as a songwrter,vocalist and producer. born into the 90's was hit and miss with me though i dug him with mr.lee on hooks

    but 12 play and the self title album sealed the deal. r double album had moments as dd tp2, chocolate factory, loveland hp/usm were a return ro prime/peak and after that hit and alot of miss. trapped in the closet and a few decent songs and what?

    i got the best of times with his music from 93-04 imo. his peak to me was 92-98.

    i enjoy when he is soulful and not doing run of the mill.

    I totally agree with you, maxxx. If we've already seen the best of R. Kelly, which some people would say, then I'm ok with that.

    I don't think we can count him out....

    I am waiting for Zodiac. No one here thought that "untitled" was going to be THAT ALBUM.

    I say we can't count rob out because the media did when they tried to pinch him for the scandal.....and we got CF and HP/USM....

    I always think of Rod Stewart....they counted him out decades ago and then he made a few cover albums and now has his huge fanbase back....

    I remember when R Kelly first came out in the early 90's with Bump and Grind, but I never got into himi until I heard a snippet of "Happy People" on a TV awards show. I so much loved the little bit that I heard that I went out and purchased this CD. I was much impressed that he wrote and produced every song on the double cd. When I told a friend of mine how good the CD was, she told me that Kelly was known as the pied piper (not too sure what that means), but since then I've been interested in hearing more of his music. About a year after getting Happy People, I purchased Chocolate Factory and instantly fell in love with "Step in the Name of Love". R Kelly is a truly talented gentleman with excellent singing/songwriting and producing skills.

    Pied piper is a refrence to a story of "the pied piper of hamelin" im not sure on the whole story but....he is a man with music is able to lead people away from bad things that can harm them
