Should Aaron Hall have had R. Kelly's career?

Do you think that the sudden emergence of R. Kelly in the early 90s cockblocked Aaron Hall's solo career?

No. It's called putting in WORK.

Work is the difference between talent, and talent and success.

And by work I mean writing and producing a kajillion songs. Don't forget the hits and albums R wrote for others.

No! I thought they sounded similar at first but
that all. R. Kelly seems to be more talented as a writer,producer. And he was quite productive with amount of albums he'd drop.

Aaron Hall was a much better singer but apparently didnt have the writing and/or production skills as R.Kelly...

but to answer the question ....yes..

when R.Kelly & The Public Announcement first came out, almost everyone felt Kelly was biting Aaron Hall's vocal stylings and mannerisms...sheeit, when "ShesGot That Vibe" came out, most people at first thought it was Guy...

I vote yes. R. Kelly's 12 Play album stole whatever amount of opportunities that Aaron Hall once had for a successful solo career.

Nope. Kelly is alot more dynamic than Hall. Don't tell that to Aaron's ego though. Kells was obviously influenced by Hall, not unlike Hall was directly influenced by Charlie Wilson and Stevie Wonder and so on and so on. But, I just don't see Aaron Hall changing the trajectory of r&b music had a young and hungry Rob not come along.

Decades LATER whenever, whenever I hear "Piece of My love" on the radio I put it on Blast....I was a kid when that jam became a Summer Hit back in the day....Aaron could sing...R. Kelly is a genius Songwriter..Even with all the The MESS that he brought on himself & his Family the Brotha is simply Gifted. Kelly will be writing songs for himself & other Artists until the Day he Dies...He's untouchable..

It's ok Aaron lmao. Maybe if you stopped putting down other artists accomplishments and beefing with your bandmates, your own accolades would be put into proper perspective.

Joking aside, it certainly stings Aaron's pride seeing Charlie Wilson rising again, and selling out shows with the help of R. Kelly and the Neptunes (protégés of Teddy Riley). If he was just a little more gracious, he could undoubtedly make his own niche in today's market.

I get the feeling that he enjoys being a celeb more that WORKING at his craft.

R. Kelly had a nice little career...but to call him a genius is a major stretch...

Prince = Genius
Maurice White = Genius
R.Kelly = commercial success/style biter

eek spit falloff

Brother Chancellor, you know I have nothing but respect for you. But THAT^ is overreaching! lol

Only R's first three albums (Born In2 The 90's, 12 Play, R.Kelly) are worth re-listening. Afterward, his later albums (especially R.) are basically recycling the same freaking chord progressions of the R. Kelly album.

I can remember several years ago a younger co worker had the radio on a r&b hip hop

station and they premiered R.Kelly song Trapped In The Closet. After the song went off

the female DJ was talking about how genius he was for that shitty song. lol

As for Aaron Hall drugs and personal issues derailed a once promising solo career.

I actually hear Aaron's solo debut more than "12 play". It was one of the last major mainstream rnb albums to have a few uptempo newjack jams on it and the slow jams were good too.

.

Iam sure Iam in the minority though LOL

Damn, I had no idea dude was so crazy. Pretty funny stuff. No wonder him and Teddy would fight. Teddy seems so much more meek and humble compared to the larger than life Hall. I love Hall in Hammers "Pumps and a bump" video LOL.

.

Never got Hall's second album, but like Bobby Brown, he seems to of wasted his shit.

.

That you can't say for Mr Kelly. Kelly kept busy after the mid 90's. Hall seemed to dissapear along with Bobby Brown, Devante and heck, even D'angelo. Drugs man...

Dude may keep it real and I don't know what problems he has, but the man needs to come back down to earth some time LOL. Still love(d) his voice and style though.

Maybe Aaron Hall should have had his albums written and produced by R. Kelly. Would have been interesting.

Aaron did do a song with Charlie Wilson, so Charlie didn't mind the bite LOL.

Aarons soundtrack cuts have often been good (though not that Wilson duet though LOL).

"Curiosity" sorta being like a sequel to his best OST song "Don't be afraid".

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

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
