Whose ‘Brotha’ Is Betta? Angie Stone’s Or Jill Scott’s?

This was suggested to us some time ago, and it's finally here: Angie Stone versus Jill Scott in the "Brotha" Battle of the Beats. Both of these luscious ladies have duked it out in previous BOTB's but this is their first time going up against each other, and what a match up this is.

In this corner, we have Angie with one of her biggest hits from her sophomore CD, Mahogany Soul. Her anthem for Black men from the corner to the boardroom was a mainstay on urban radio, and the remix with Alicia Keys and Eve gave the track an even longer shelf life. In the other corner, we have Jill with an album cut from her classic debut CD, Who Is Jill Scott? Words and Sounds, Vol. 1. Although the song wasn't released as a single, this inspirational cut became a favorite of Jill's fans.

So whose "Brotha" are y'all feeling more?

Angie Stone: "Brotha"

Jill Scott: "Brotha"

  1. I love both, so choosing one is like choosing between two children. But, Jilly from Philly gets my vote on this one.

  2. Jill Scott, no contest!

  3. I LOOOVE Jill, that's my girl for real, but I have to give this one to Angie!

  4. Angie Stone...hands down!! Sorry Jilly, I love you girl but this one goes to our other sister!

  5. Love 'em both, but Jill.

  6. This is sooooooo wrong!! But I'm gonna have to go with Angie even though Jill is my favorite artist. Her song (Angie) just makes you want to cry - I feel her on this for real.

  7. I love Jill Scott, but I have to give this to my girl Angie Stone. This is our black brothas anthem.

  8. Now i love me some Raphael Saadiq and i think he can do NO WRONG..which is why i absolutely love Angie stones "Brotha" but JIlls is CLASSIC and is from a CLASSIC album..so im ridin with JIll hands down

  9. This has to be the most unfair vote ever.. since that whole Florida thing at least..
    I will go against my own extreme lust of all things Jilly to go with Angie. I used to play this whenever the women at my job would start dogging on men (stayed in repeat a long long time). And anything that can shut down 5+ women for more than 3 seconds AND make them think has to be good.

  10. I actually sent in this suggestion and I'm glad you posted it. I looove both Jill and Angie a whole lot and both songs are classics but I have to go with Angie Stone on this one because she had the guts to release this song as a single, for this reason a lot she has my vote. Secondly, whenever I listen to this song I get teary eyed because the lyrics to her Brotha is simple yet deep for every Brotha.

  11. I'm going with Angie. I love the way she references Curtis Mayfield's "I'm So Proud" near the end. That's one of my favorite songs by one of my favorite artists.

  12. I love Jill but not the song. Angie gets my vote this time.

  13. Jill Scott hands down, no ifs, ands, or buts about it. Angie's brotha is so commercial to me and comes from a place of "lets sell some records". Jills version touches my soul and i feel her on this. its like she is whispering asperations in my ear. I LOVE YOU JILL SCOTT! HEY YALL... WHATS T?
