Hip Hop Soul
HIP HOP SOUL is a subgenre of contemporary R&B music, most popular during the early and mid 1990s, which fuses rhythm and blues/gospel singing with hip hop musical production. The subgenre had evolved from a previous R&B subgenre, new jack swing , which had incorporated hip-hop influences into R&B music. By contrast, hip hop soul is, as described in The Encyclopedia of African American Music, "quite literally soul singing over hip hop grooves". The genre was most popular during the mid 1990s with artists such as Mary J. Blige

Honorific Nicknames In Popular Music
HONORIFIC NICKNAMES IN POPULAR MUSIC are terms used, most often in the media or by fans, to indicate the significance of an artist, and are often religious , familial , or (most frequently) royal and aristocratic titles, used metaphorically . Honorific nicknames were used in classical music in Europe as early as the early nineteenth century, with figures such as Mozart being called "The father of modern music" and Bach "The father of modern piano music". They were also particularly prominent in African-American culture in the post-Civil War era, perhaps as a means of conferring status that had been negated by slavery , and as a result entered early jazz and blues music, including figures such as Duke Ellington
