    Default Do you think R. Kelly is underrated?

    I was just reading Vh1's greatest artist of all time and R. didn't get a mention. It seems like he doesn't get much praise from critics.To be honest, I find it quite sad that other gimmicky artists are put on pedestal and R. doesn't get hardly any praise for his talent and genius work for other artists and himself.

    yes he's underrated but not as much as people might think. critics respect him, most critics at least, for his accomplishments.

    the real place where Rob is not getting any credit is from the people who are biased against him. they are the the main reason he's underrated.

    I think R. Kelly not enough underrated. I think he's Legend by now, but I often encounter Kelly's haters. I don't understand how somebody could hate R. Kelly?

    People that aren't regular listeners of RnB music probably do underrate him, yeah. But I think most that do listen to RnB, even if they aren't fans of the man himself, appreciate that he is one of the best ever in RnB and that he paved the way for most artists that are out now.

    It's not the question if he's underrated. R. kelly is well respected and well know for his music. It's just when you say the name R. kelly, people know what you're talking about, people can name multiple hit songs. He brought us so many great albums that people know he's great. it's just the music that fell off a bit to some people, but if he can bring a great album let's sa ysomething like CF he'll get the attention he deserves. Haters always gonna hate, so no need to pay attention to them

    R.Kelly ain't ever gonna get his due until he is either old or dead and gone i'm afraid to say.

    some folks hate on him for his personal life, some hate on him musically because of his songs or the old hating heads who want to dig up Aaron Hall and act like somehow Hall had a career paved in gold until RK came along.

    i feel RK's versatility and the fact he is ignored makes him underrated.

    who else drops a bump and grind, i believe i can fly, you are not alone, back and forth and then a decade later trapped in the closet and by the way brings back the isley brothers,etc...


    cat covers R&B,pop,hip-hop and goespel all in one roll.

    personal life and some of his work has cost him with some folks, but the track record and impact overall says Underrated and easily one of the greatest artists ever imo.

    well i think he is underrated first there are many people which not listening r&b and also young peolpe they just know people like chris brown drake all the upcoming stars. but R.Kelly is 2 decates in this music buisness and the other artist respect them most of them. and the other fact is that people allways looking or rember the negative things so if you asking someone how is not a fan of r&b he will answer yes the person which have sex with............ and that`s why i think he is underrated
    have to focus what he reach in kind of music

    we love you january boy

    Wait and see when he dies what happens. Won't be as big as Michael Jackson's death, but will be very big. Thats when Kell's will get the respect he deserves I guess. Sad to say it, but it's true.
