Solange Goes On Twitter Rant, Defends Brandy's Album 'Two Eleven'

Solange Knowles has made one thing clear, don’t comment on Brandy’s new album unless you understand the singer’s “deep” material.

Beyonce’s younger sister took to her Twitter account on Saturday to sound off on certain music blogs bashing the “Moesha” star’s latest studio effort, “Two Eleven”:

Some of these music blogs could actually benefit from hiring people who REALLY understand the culture of R&B to write about R&B.

Like you really should know about deep Brandy album cuts before you are giving a "grade" or a "score" to any R&B artist.

And ivy league credentials don't give you any insight on "grading" a rappers body of work...when you've had no access to the REAL culture.

There are SO many gifted writers who truly understand. Who didn't get hip to R&B & Hip-Hop via the crossover artist of their childhood.

So you can stop acting like it just popped off last year for R&B. Like it just got interesting and experimental.

So you can stop praising every rapper who raps over a trap beat, but can't form literate sentences & then you market it as some hip shit.

And that wasn't a rant.It was an observation and a request.
