Jon B vs. Robin Thicke Drama

Jon B. has clapped at Robin Thicke once again in a new interview with Allhiphop.com. He basically says Robin owes him for paving the way for R&B white boys, and he challenges him to a piano and vocal face off. Here’s a couple interesting quotes:

“I’ve never been on the cover of VIBE, but I don’t think that that is a good thing to really point out. It’s like damn, who are you to say that you deserve the cover? That’s kind of pompous to me. Just fall back and do what you do and don’t complain. You’ve been blessed.”
- Jon B on Robin Thicke’s complaint for not making the VIBE cover.

“Listen man, you have your career and I have mine. If it came down to a battle situation, where we were piano to piano, vocals to vocals, and he really wanted to test skills on some wild competitive type of stuff we could make it happen.” - Jon B on a battle with Thicke.

“I paved the way for a lot of white artists now that don’t have to deal with the stigma of being a white artist. I don’t think that people would be as open for non-African American artists like that if it I didn’t take a lot of the slack for them.” - Jon B on originally holding it down for white Soul artists.

Bring on the R&B white boy beef.

I like them both but I do hope that Jon can come back and reclaim his "blue eyed soul" throne from Robin. Scratch that, what's wrong with having both of them? People act like they gotta choose. lol It's human nature.

Jon wins in the sexy department.

Jon jus mad because he cant get a hit now and days...Jon just had a bad deal with Babyface....Robin has been out for a while now, its not like he just popped up. However I'd still go for my husband tho' aint nothing like "Cool Relax"...just lay back music And some Dont Talk
Download all the shit hop that you can for your kids, neices, nephews, and their friends also. That will prevent them from going out and buying it and will prevent some shit hop sales. Every little bit helps - Andy

lol For real. He just sounds real crazy talking about battling another grown man. Maybe he’s the one that needs to fall back and focus on his own work.

KC from The Sunshine Band and The Average White Band need to slap the shit out of both of those guys. Those white guys were throwing down some hard white R&B long before these two youngsters made their weak sissy white R&B.

Yeah,Jon B. sounds really defensive,like he's jealous or something.Maybe he should close his mouth and concentrate on becoming relevent again.
