Me and Devs rehashed a conversation that we tabled a few months ago. Sam Cooke VS Otis Redding. She prefer the Big O. While I naturally prefer the SoulGawd Sam Cooke. While I agree that Otis makes you FEEL his words. I mean happy sad Love etc. You FEEL what Otis is feelin when he sangs. BUT He did what he did because of Sam. Covered joints Sam did. Sam is arguably the creator of Soul music. The OG of the Soul game. There’s this indescribable quality of his music. This FEELING. That’s the best as I can describe it (word to Isaiah Rashad, we had a convo about “the feeling” in music last year). So thus begins Sam vs Otis. BC vs Devs. Teacher vs Student.
