    take the kick drum out and Country and R&B are the same. Country Music is a Offspring of R&B as is Rock and Roll,Blues, Gospel,Jazz,etc.... but the White Media paints a whole different picture. I could go off on that element,but I shall refrain,but Black Music represents all of that.

    Nice that others genres like his music, but I don't care for that version.

    Hmmmm...now I KNOW I KNOW an R&B artist who was categorized in that same "soap opera" type music recently... Hidden Content Any ideas?? lol

    So I find it very interesting that R.Kelly frequently visits those same categories: Down Low, Real Talk, Busted, Trapped in the Closet, Hush and MANY more etc etc etc.

    In fact you would think Country songs like Carrie Underwood's "Before He Cheats" would be a Country music "prequal" to anyone of those songs I mentioned above from R.Kelly. Same emotions, same lyrical content, they are pretty close to each other. LOL!

    Carrie Underwood in "Before He Cheats": "I dug my keys into the side of his pretty little souped up four-wheel drive."

    R.Kelly in "Real Talk": "Bitch, I wish you woooooooooould burn my motherfuckin' clothes!"

    Its the folk part of both these genres that really stands out and that R.Kelly frequently emobides. The story-telling, the emotions and the realness.
    Thank you AZ for breaking all that down. Now I can see one aspect of country music that I never knew before. I mean, yeah, country is one genre and can deal with those topics but I didn't know it's known to have more of that elements.
