Folks like Joe Budden and Irv Gotti are worried that Drake's new house album could spell the end of the Hip Hop genre.

According to Chris Brown, that would also mean the death of R&B because Breezy believes Hip Hop already swallowed up the older genre.

“It’s obsolete in the fact of it being primary, meaning like, you used to listen to the radio and they had an R&B day.  Or like it had a section when you're like, 'I know I'm going to hear seven R&B songs.'  Not to take anything away, Hip Hop has just been dominating shit. A n*gga can’t hate on Hip Hop. I’m apart of it so I love it. Let all the Hip Hop be heard," Brown said on the Million Dollaz Worth of Game podcast. 

“But I feel like — not to sound lame when I say this — it’s really no more artistry left in that type of showmanship lane. A lot of the R&B people have to go introverted or look like they’re emo, and if they’re not that, people will give them the neo-soul type of genre. I don’t feel that’s right. But I feel like there’s a scarcity of confident males that can sing.”

Agree?
