    Default Spin off thread:street cred with best of both worlds Projects

    this is a spin off re-mix of the best of both worlds thread and I was wondering did you feel that doing these best of Both world Projects with Jay Z or doing heavy rap related projects gave Kellz more Street Cred? I think he always had it but somebody will say working with these rappers added another layer to him. whatcha think??

    I think since both albums were below par, it didn't add much to Kells street cred.

    But Kells already HAS street cred. Just listen to the I Wish Remix. That song could have been rapped, but it became more meaningful when Kells sang it.

    Finally, there has been one song that Kells has done that has added more to his street cred than either of the BOBW albums: GO GETTA. I can put that on at any party and people just stop what they're doin and start singing it. It's a hot track, and I think, especially in terms of young people, it really got Kells a more hardcore gangsta image. Same with, but to a lesser extent, That's That Shit.

    Naw He always had Street cred. IMO, that's what he did with his R&B.

    I voted for naw he's always had street cred. He's from the South Side of Chicago. Everyone knows that and everyone respects that.

    I also think he always had street cred. His lyrics give him street-cred, not working with rappers. He doesn't need rappers to give him credibility of any kind, shit, he doesn't need rappers for anything, to tell you the truth.

    Speaking as a 20 year old, a lot of my fellow college students thought Kells got extra street cred because of working with rappers. I personally think he always had it (south side, chi-town, like kellzfan said), but I can tell you for a fact that at parties none of Kells' R&B is played--if you're at a party and you hear a Kells song playing, it's 99% gonna be one of his rap-collabos. I think it gave him extra visibility.

    That being said, he really should go back to his Chocolate Factory-style music.
