Brent Faiyaz thinks people don’t care about gender lines, Troll says he’s ‘not smart’


Instead of applauding, the hitmaker explained why, as a musician, everything “just becomes notes”.

With all the conversation erupting about R&B this week, discussions about what qualifies a song or album to fit into a particular genre have also increased. Sean “Diddy” Combs posted a question asking if R&B was dead, and ever since then debates have been going on all over the internet. Later, questions about what defines R&B were also posed, bringing many generations of music lovers to clash.

Yet through it all, there are many like Brent Faiyaz who believe gender lines are blurring.

“No one cares about musical genres anymore, it’s primitive,” he tweeted. “Sauce dat sh*t up & let it fly.”

While artists are certainly breaking industry norms and finding their own paths – roads that often cross in Pop-Rap or Alt-Hip Hop – some fans disagree with Faiyaz.

A Twitter user replied to the singer, “That’s why you shouldn’t make some people famous. They’re not smart.” It was something he could have ignored, but Faiyaz wanted to address the criticism instead.

“Lol man it’s really hard to explain this to 2 non-creative music lovers but the gender-differentiating properties are pretty darn meaningless to us after a while,” he wrote. “You spend enough time in the studio and they just become notes.”

Expect to hear a lot more about this in the days to come. Check it out below.
