    I'm using musical in the idea of Musicianship. The Neptunes as producers function more with an emphasis as a band (which they are essentially, though granted Tim was in that one group/band with them eons ago) whereas Tim def gets a lot of his musical ideas from musicians playing them but his process is more tech oriented and collagist. Not that Timbaland isn't himself musical b/c certainly he loves using people to help flesh out his ideas with a lot of straightforward stuff not unlike the Neptunes but what he does at the core is usually rhythmic experimentation and trickery.

    B.e.d. is great.

    Like the dream he's a child of r Kelly (an unfortunate phrase) but more than a pale imitation.

    Listening to young thugs verse on offshore recently I would say he's one of the foremost rnb vocalists these days if we're admitting that rap and rnb have merged fully at points.

    I mean Young Thug doesn't sing like an R&B singer so not really no.

    That's the worst attribute of rap's turn into melodic approaches; that because they're black people kind of automatically shift them into R&B as far as to what they're doing melodically. Future sings more like a rock singer than a R&B singer, but people are gonna call something like "Turn On The Lights" R&B b/c...

    barty why don't you start explaining things to people instead of dangling them in front of them
    and hoping they hear what you hear?

    also crowley we've evolved past liking and disliking now. it's a new era. liking means nothing. you have to explain why a record fails. why it is not doing what it sets out to do.
