    Don't quote on the exact details of the story, but you get my point.
    i got that book and Marvin was considered too Black. Lou was very middle of the road. you can't count on the Grammys or any award show to get it right though.

    the industry likes to make you wait years before acknowledging you. they like to act blind,etc... you end up with some token awards way past the pull date. but Kellz got robbed for years at those award shows as did Gaye and others. nothing new there.

    Usher got robbed with confessions, it happen to the Grammys to Michael Jackson because Off the wall only got one award and they shut him out completely for Bad. they did the same thing to Mariah carey back in the 90's. can't get caught up in Industry award shows.

    Many of the awards shows are getting meaningless. The reason is there are too many? Also, majority of competitors can't touch R.Kelly musically. He's gotten so peerless over the years. It can be a bad things cuz you gotta have a healthy competition. And the mainstream music scene would be more live with it. As a result, the full list of awardees don't look pretty. I'd love to see Kellz on lists with other collegues who are decent to be mentioned with him when he's got albums like CF and HP/USM.
    Let me be very honest with y'all, for all these reasons, I wouldn't be too happy when he grabs some trophies with DU. Rather, I hope he gets a whole lot of them and media attention when he wins with his nakedly soulful album.

    Y'all don't want DU to get awards because it wouldn't be FAIR???

    The whole fucking music industry hasn't been fair towards R. Kelly since the grammy awards in 98 (exept for a few other awards shows) and now we FANS want them to be fair, which means DU shouldn't get any awards???

    Oh man...

    I'd hope for being fairer than just fair, if you know what I mean. Double Up gets attacked cuz he was playing some characters that can be easily targeted and stereotyped. But when he is just Robert Kelly and shows his raw soul, it seems that the awards are already flown away so far. That ain't fair.

    Ok helena, I get this. That's true and I understand it.

    What I was trying to say was that I think we as fans shouldn't think R. kelly doesn't deserve awards for DU, just because let's say, in your opionions he has done better albums before and since he's been robben back then, he should be robbed now again.

    Even if R. Kelly gets an award for song of the year for "woozy" feat. Luda (I hate that song) I'd say shure he deserves it....yes I'm a fan and yes I am prepossessed for him.

    Thanx for understanding my point, DTP. Most of us are all passionate, no question to the same mind that hope for the best to him. In that big picture, it's all good. Those who voted for "He doesn't deserve~" believe he can win in a more meaningful way cuz they're not not, but less concerned about the number of awards itself to feel fair enough, IMO. Also, they might be more concerned about the general public's view as a fan. Outside a fan group, the public is a very cold judge. It's nothing to ignore cuz they decide what they like or not without much bond to a certain artist. So, they can say straight "Double Up sucks. He don't deserve it". The 3 votes for the option shows the members worry about that with more objective point of view rather than downright deny his efforts.

    How can they not give R. Kelly an award. Tell me what artist is as talented and doing what he is doing right now. Kellz is genious. I can't wait to see what he comes with next.
