The marriage of Hip Hop and R&B

The marriage of Hip Hop and R&B

In this episode I will look at the combination of Hip Hop and R&B in current music. We will hear some new music from Cody Chesnutt and Frank Ocean. Both of these musicians stradle the line between hip hop and R&B and I will share songs that have both elelments in the same song. The mix of these styles in one song can sometimes be very powerful. We'll also hear a John Legend song that shows some influence from Jimi Hendrix and Jeff Buckley. A strange combination you say? We'll, have a listen and see (hear) what you think.
