Blue Eyed Soul Mixtape Volume 1

Posted On Friday, January 23, 2015

If you peeped the last episode of The Writer's Bench where we were chopping it up about race in music, I asked the question, why does it seem like blacks get more upset over whites in hip hop then whites in R&B? After the show, I was talking to one of my peoples and I came up with the answer (or at least one of the answers) and I realized it 's because damn near all of the "blue eyed soul" artists are dope as hell! I mean, you've got Justin dropping classic albums like it's nothing, Christina Aguilera singing circles around any black girl you can throw at her and what living, breathing human being doesn't LOVE Teena Marie or Hall and Oats?!?!?! But what if all of the artists I just named were coming with wack music? Maybe THEN we'd be upset at these cats  for "ruining" our music but since they're dope, it's all good. But riddle me this, if Macklemore was as nice as Kendrick Lamar or if Iggy Azalia was as nice as MC Lyte in her hey day, would we still have a problem with them cleaning up at the awards shows and selling millions of records? Probably not. All of that to say, check out my "Blue Eyed Soul Mixtape Volume 1" that I put together to salute some of those "blue eyed soul" artists that have been holding it down in the R&B game over the past 30 years!
