Neo Soul is my favorite music genre. The term was coined by music industry enterepreneur Kedar Massenburg during the late 1990s to market and describe a style of music that emerged from soul and contemporary R&B.
Artists such as Mary J. Blige, Raphael Saadiq, Leela James, Musiq and the list goes on and on! But now these days it is not trendy to be in love. I do not understand why that is, why not encourage love in music. Isn't that the point of Music to go thru your life with a soundtrack in your head.
I miss the 90's because we were free as artist to express our need and want for love and meaningful relationships. Even Mc's like Queen Latifah, Da Brat, Foxy Brown, Mc Lyte had set the tone for ladies in hiphop well before the 90's. Women were respected and spoken highly of in Music. I am a fan of alot of trending artists. Overall tho, I am a 80's baby with a 90's soul. Today I celebrate the 90's era. & all the artists that influenced me over the years. Kudos to you all.
