Started off with rap/hip hop and R&B. When that went downhill by the end of the 90s, started exploring other genres. Slowly realized that I was out-growing the artists in terms of maturity, and wasn't always thrilled to read about their personal lives. Now, I listen to practically every genre from oldies to rap to New Age to country, but the lyrics have to be rock solid awesome. What I listen to the most is movie soundtracks because I don't find myself saying "that's BS" after lyrics lol!
