I was describing this online debate with the Dean of American music criticism, Nelson George, and the first thing he said was "R. Kelly wouldn't put himself ahead of Marvin Gaye". 



I am sure if Nelson George reads my arguments he will agree with not only R. Kelly surpassing Marvin but my rankings overall.

In your heart Nelson you know I'm right!

As far as this comment " R. Kelly wouldn't put himself ahead of Marvin Gaye" who would?

The only artist I can think of who is both bold and talented enough to make such a statement is Prince. I remember him saying in the 80's, " You could get Cosby or any other entertainer in the world and I'll blow them off the stage". I'm trying to remember if he made a similar comment including Michael.

Marvin easily not just because I hate R Kelly but because I don't like his music. At all.

You're obviously still reeling from the Pacquiao loss.

I forgive you and remember time heals all wounds.

Perhaps an R Kelly retrospective can brighten your mood?

I have come up with a clear cut plan to prove that I'm right.

It is officially barbecue season and this provides me with a steady sample of people to choose from. I will casually slip into some backyards, parks, etc. and set my plan into motion. I will seek out the 20-30 yr olds and bring up Kelly and how great he is. When they are properly charged up I will say that he is better than Marvin. Next, I will get the 40 and up crowd to start talking about Marvin and tell them those 20-30yr olds over there are saying Marvin can't see Kelly!

As the parties start to clash I will sit back and help myself to the chicken!

Barber shops debates. Good.

BARBECUE debates. Priceless!

Jefferson, if there were any doubt you were evil for starting this bogus thread, you have just removed it once you revealed your TRUE nefarious motive... CHICKEN!

Well done!

Excuse me sir, it is not just Chicken.

It is well seasoned, expertly barbecued chicken. And being in Brooklyn that means I have the added bonus of JERK chicken being in the vicinity as Marvin and Kellz fans attack each other for their R&B hero! 8)

Take a deep breath, inhale.

HOLD!

Breathe out slowly.

Repeat a few times and the visions of Pacquiao losing will melt away.

Yea its a personal preference and fave, I think he's better than both.  Would've been great to see become better than both of them if he lived passed the age of 26.

To me Marvin and Al Green and Smokey and Stevie are the legends and you can argue for Gil Scott and Curtis Mayfield--Kelly to me is like baby Face. Except I like Face and think he's talented.
