I grew up on hip hop, but truth is truth.

Plus reggae is more uplifting than hip hop.

    Reggae should not be confused with dancehall. I think it is harder to understand dancehall. I'm not as big on dancehall.

    You now figuring this 🤬 out reggae which is a genre that actually encompasses many different musical styles is much more balanced than hip-hop currently is.

    Nah, I have been listening to reggae for a long while too (I was born in the West Indies). Sure, there may be some wack reggae too, but there is just something about good reggae that is uplifting. So with reggae you have the musical excellence plus the uplift. That makes it better, IMO.

    I have always said this and felt this way.

    reggae birthed hiphop so its only natural to be more advanced.but nothing is like a nice medley on a nice riddim.

    🤬 by banging for like 15 minutes

    Reggae is music for the soul. After a good listening session and a few blunts u feel like u in paradise. I pretty much meditate with reggae music. It's very uplifting to the mind, body & soul.

    I didn't actually start appreciating Reggae until I started smoking weed(as cliche as that sounds) it's a nice change of pace and it can mellow you out. I used to listen to rap only then got put on to jazz and now I'm starting to listen to reggae, and older r&b. After listening to other genres you start to see how limited rap is. Yet it's amazing what songs a good rapper/producer can put out despite how limited they are, some rap speaks to the soul more than reggae and vice versa it really depends on your taste, your mood and the song, but overall I'm starting to like Reggae more the Rap at the moment.

    My only problem with r&b is sometimes most of the times it's just too soft.

    I grew up listening to reggae so I understand everything they say. If you didn't, you're gonna have a hard time even understanding the message. I haven't heard a bad reggae song while hip hop/rap can be hit and miss
