    I love that guys music. I would even go that far and say he might be one of the most talented current artists out rn. He can sing, rap, has a great beat selection, kills every f---ing feature and is overall just a versatile artist (90s RnB, Freestyling, Hard bars, Great flow...). Sadly a lot of people with great talent seem to be abusive and he still hasn't talked about what happened with Meg. So another fitting question: Could you separate between the person and the artist? Or is there are line you draw. I for example won't ever listen to R.Kelly again but Chris Brown is still a big player in my playlist. Does that make me a hypocrite? I'd love to hear your opinions.

    Not the biggest fan of Daystar. He has some great tunes but I dunno, I find him corny and his biting kind of annoys me too.

    Look, listen to who you wanna listen to. As for me, I try to separate the art from the artist unless the art they produce is embedded in their abusive and predatory behaviour.

    I can see how you could reconcile listening to Chris Brown but draw the line at R. Kelly.

    I remember hearing him on that tpain song "Get Ya Roll On" and I honestly thought it was a girl lol

    Good music is good music to me if I would keep up and stop listening to every artist thats a scumbag or did something thats not good I would deny myself from listening to great music so idc about that.

    @awhellno any reccomendations?

    Insanely talented artist. But I’ve lost all respect for him. It’s R Kelly territory to me. I usually try to look past the person, but I’m probably done with Tory forever.

    Chris Brown f----- up royally but I eventually found a way to look past especially when he himself was able to mend things with Rihanna. You have to be demented as f--- to s---t a woman, one who bore no threat to your well being. I’m good.
