    I can't stand rap music. I can't stand a lot about the current crop of musicians black or white. I don't see the talent we on e had in America. This is true across the races, but in America, black musicians used to lead the way for many decades. I'm going to play some of my favorites for you across several genres, even rap, when it was fun. That became a heap of trash though. Sad. Another wasted opportunity.

    I have a pretty massive playlist of old skool funk, disco, and R&B from the ‘70’s that gets played in my boat.
    Chicks dig it.

    In some quarters, especially blues joints in the South, black music still is great.

    Don't even have to be black to play the black man's music, Elvis, Jimmy Page, Eminem.

    Some new songs I like, but, I don't like a lot of new songs it seems.
    Just because I see a music video on YouTube that makes me think 'well that's not fashionable to my eyes' and, 'that sounds generic, and I hate it' and it could be ANYBODY black or white singing this in whatever language, and I'm like... Nah, I miss the 90's.
