    Default is R.Kelly considered Old School Now?

    thinking back to that Juror at the trial who said his music was old and she is into other things I asked this question but being considered Old school doesn't mean you don't count anymore. but where do you stand and do you hear folks younger call Kellz Old School?

    no, because he does so many remixes with rappers and other new artists. and he keeps making huge hit songs, so it's not like people don't hear him on the radio these days.

    he needs another 10 years. he is only 41.

    IDK but I know most people refer to him as two different people like some people say the 90s Kelly or the Bald Head Kelly, or the Kelly with the braids.

    That's a good question. I think he's stuck in the middle. He certainly is not on the Ne-Yo, Chris Brown, Omarion level, but he's not old and played out. He is still relevant and people can definitely expect him to be on the remixes and make those platinum albums.

    Kellz? Old school? Hell to the naw. IMO, another 15 or 20 years for Kells in the music biz is MOST DEFINITELY old school. He's too young to be called that.

    I think he is unique in that he does have some old school music but his career never stopped and he can put out a hit just as well today (think about the popularity of songs like Thoia Thoing or I'm a Flirt with young people) as he did in the 90s so you really can't say he is strictly an old school artist. Who else is still around from when he started out and still consistently putting out hits and selling platinum albums. I think the next five years or so will tell whether or not he truely moves into the old school artist realm. But there is nothing wrong with old school especially if he transitions with hits.

    Nope...old school means the style of music. He's still creative and his music is with this time. He also led the trend for most of the r&b music that's out right now.

    I voted "Yeah because of his longevity but he is still counts." He's been around the longest but he's not played out by far. I personally, don't want him to be along the lines of the teeny boppers idols like Chris Brown and Neyo because his music is far superior than theirs.

    Mariah Carey and Mary J. Bliege are still around from back then,but in terms of writing and Producing on others and being directly linked to New Jack Swing era of music making he is a man on a Island all alone.
