"Angie Stone says she left J Records because she didn't want to mentor Alicia Keys."
Just how silly does this sound. What would Angie teach Alicia? Granted Angie B has rocked the microphone since the Sugarhill Records days, but plueeze come on. Different styles. And I don't care if she and D'angelo penned hits together. Alicia simply has a different force behind her. She can definitely write her own songs -- and her piano playing is out of this world.
