Rhythm And Blues. A style of music denotable by its bluesy guitar sounds and deep vocalising, that dates back to about the 1930s. Nowadays the phrase Rnb has been coined by slow rap music, where the actual phrase rhythm and blues is no londer relevant. A general feeling that moaning about someones make believe situations counts as blues, whereas genuine rnb was started during the derpression in america, where the blues were a reflection of human uncertaintey and not the modern day idea of rnb (i.e. flashing money and cars and women and whining about girls)

Get the RnB mug.
A style of music which has now evolved into a style of Hip-Hop especially made for 13yr old girls who pretend that Usher is their boyfriend.

The so called RnB "stars" are probably not the talent behind the music, and the supposed stars are actually models.

RnB fans are usually teenage girls with the intelligence of a frog.
They treat anyone who doesn't listen as fools of society, when in reality, they are exactly what they make other people out to be.

The worst type of music alive today, popular with mostly unintelligent townies (see definition), most commonly assosiated with hip-hop. Although in the past RnB didn't have the reputation it has today.

A combination of blues and jazz that was developed in the United States by Black musicians way back in the day, but has now adopted the form of modern soul with a hip-hop flavor or the softer delicate cousin of hip-hop music.
