    I'm trying to gain a vote by being nice with other people:

    https://www.ukmix.org/forums/viewtopic.php?t=47367

    Nah just joking.

    My favourite rapper is Vanilla Ice because he gave Queen and David Bowie yet another number one everywhere.

    Seriously, I don't know much the genre in itself. Jazz, rap, R&b, reggae, always the same, I never paid much attention to them.

    lol at both. I don't know about rap, but surely, you don't know much about groups like Kayak, Valensia, Frank Zappa, do you?. There are always gains and losses when comparing.

    Spider, it isn't like I don't like "black music", it is just I never heard any of the main acts of each genre. I can´t dislike it, simply because I just don't know them. Maybe if you want, you can recommend something.

    In general, I don't like the genres, I like that artists.

    How about Fugees / "the score", Lauryn Hill / "the misseducation of lauryn hill", Outkast / "speakerboxxx-the love below" to start?

    I know a lot about Frank Zappa darling
    anyway I can understand you don't like rap, jazz or reggae (given that you like Queen, the Backstreet Boys and co.) but r&b ? Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder...etc ?

    What does the fact that I like Queen and Backstreet boys have to do with the other genres?. I have already explained it. See your example: you like Britney Spears, Radiohead, yet you are also a fan of many Jazz or r&b acts. And I repeat, I didn't say I don't like those genres. I just don't know them. In any case, I repeat, I don't like any specific genre, I like the artists. Is it clear?.

    Thank you for the recommendations, you, Gustavo and Zago.

    you don't like Stevie Wonder or old-school Michael Jackson? They seem to fit the "good voice + good music" criteria. Al Green, Marvin Gaye, Prince too. Check some of it out. I am not a hip hop fan either but all those classic r&b artists are great.

    Nice lists Zago. But you'd better put Jay-Z' "American Gangster" and Nas' "Hip Hop Is Dead" and "Untitled" in the last one.

    Well my favourite rappers are Jay-Z, Biggie and Nas.

    Other I like are Rakim, KRS-One and all Wu-Tang Clan members just to name a few.

    Yes, I love Micheal Jackson. But I'm mostly familiar with his stuff from "Off the wall" onwards. I don't know much about him prior to that. Steve Wonder is a musical geniues to me, great songwriter with great interpretation.

    I think T.I. could sell 2,2/2,3m, if not more, also if it ends up like this it'll be the first Snoop album to not be in the top 10 maybe the beginning of the end for him...

    For the millionth time, I don't like the genres or musical styles, I like the artists. Understand?.

    Anyway, isn't Micheal Jackson a lot more pop oriented?.

    Spider, still waiting a reply to this:

    Ludacris starts falling apparently, I guess he won't sell more than 700k, the same for Plies who will struggle to sell more than 400k...

    If T.I. releases successful single after Dead & Gone, he can reach 3 million mark... Who knows, will T.I. release any singles?

    He's going to jail by the end of this month (if I'm not wrong), so I don't think so...

    but even if the album "only" sells 2.5 million, I dunno if you guys realize but it would mean T.I. is now bigger than 2Pac, Jay-Z, Biggie or DMX have ever been
