How y’all doing?!
I think yesterday, the list of nominees for the BET 2013 awards came out and as usual i was rooting for the category of best Gospel artists. Wow! Tight category! My one and only Deitrick Haddon was nominated as well as Lecrae,Mavin Sapp,Marymary,Tamela Munn(The lady from Tyler Perry’s stage plays and movies. Amazing voice i must confess. Didn’t know she was into music professionally). I think one more person is missing. Can’t remember now or Not! Anyways a couple of minutes ago i tweeted i preferred Deitrick Haddon to Lecrae (Google is your friend) simply because the former appealled to me than the later. I’m more into Rock/ RnB than Hiphop/Rap. I don’t even listen to it. Trust the ever faithful fans to ‘defend’ him. And i’m like personally i think Lecrae is good @ what he does, i mean i’ve listened to him buh because of his genre of music,i’m not a fan and i don’t think i can ‘enjoy’ his music despite the fact that he is a Gospel artist.
Really i’ve never dug Rap, Hiphop and Afro-whatever and all those ‘gangster’ ish(That’s what i think). I dunno. No matter how good you are,u can’t make me download your song or buy your album which i hardly ever do. It just isn’t me. That’s why you can never see an Olamide or Wizkid or Kanye West track on my phone,ipod or laptop. Apart from the fact that they lack lyrical content,they hardly pass any message. I don’t think i wanna spend my time listening to songs like that all in the name of entertainment. Yeah they are cool,they’re good @ what they do,they’re supposedly talented and they’re are getting paid for it. I’m not criticising them or anything. All i’m saying is i don’t roll like that no matter how much they are been hyped.
Then again i’m not a music fanatic so to speak. I’ve always said that i could go weeks without listening to music. Yeah. I’m weird like that. My love for music is superficial. All those cliches don’t move me. ”Music is a form of expression” and so on. *rme. Buh if i eventually get bored or miss it,i need something i can relate to. I need something to raise my spirits. I need something that would inspire me and i tell you Rap doesn’t do any of those for ME. Who knows maybe i’vn’t been listening to the right musicians and i’ve been living under a rock all this while. -___-. I dunno you tell me.
Basically, i wanna hear a soulful track with extraordinary vocals,powerful message and probably a raised tempo with Rock. Really. That’s all i ask for. All those punchlines and rhymes are just Whatever! I also wanna hear a band or a group of artists with amazing synchronized chemistry(anything like that?! ^_^). I wanna be inspired or moved to tears or have goosebumps. Really. Is that too much?!
