The Internet Is Throwing Virtual Blows Over Teddy Riley's Production Credits

Old school fans are dragging these youngins to shame.

Published October 11, 2018

Famed R&B singer-songwriter-producer Teddy Riley sat with the infamous Breakfast Club to reminisce on the good ol' days, how he tried to stop the martial bliss between lewd bad-boy Bobby Brown and the late soulful icon Whitney Houston, the history of New Jack Swing and what he's currently working on within the film industry.

Fans gathered 'round, whether digitally or live via radio to hear Blackstreet founding member recount moments from R&B history including the unofficial beef between his band, Guy and New Edition that led to the fatal night where his close friend was murdered, thus prompting Riley to leave the group. Amid those events, he received a call from Michael Jackson and went on to produce the Dangerous album.

Yet, in spite of his illustrious catalog and award-winning track record, diehard fans of the legendary singer are at war with neophytes on Twitter. The dimly lit next gen, still adjusting to the school of hard-knocks, had the audacity to fix their Twitter fingers to rank Metro Boomin, a 25-year-old, successful producer higher than Teddy Riley on the internet's unofficial Top 5.

  1. Many waged war by demanding respect on the crooner's legendary history, and sparked debates about him vs. Jermaine Dupri
  2. The verbal sparring took a sharp turn when some uncultured swine tried to claim trap-producer Metro Boomin's career outweighs Riley's production
  3. To put an end to everyone's opinions, one fan reminded all that without Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, none of this would be a topic of discussion
