Grown folk music is a mixture of slow jamz from back in the day, minus some dumb ass rapper, rapping about something totally different then what the song encompasses. However the most important factor is you can play grown folk music in front of your mother or grandmother:) Thats my story and I am sticking too it.
Grown Folks Music - Thought provoking melodies that people can connect with on any level; ex Jill Scott Crown Royal;Marvin Gaye Let's Get It On;Teddy P Turn Off The Lights; Minnie Ripterton Here We Go.
