It was at one time.  I'm not so familiar with a lot of more current popular music and musicians, and must admit I've never heard of the musicians you referred to.

TSOP, The Sound Of Philadelphia , was an r&b style in the 1970's. The originators and main songwriters Kenny Gamble and Leon Huff are in the rock n roll hall of fame Buzz. 

You are out of touch I guess.

I guess so, but I was very involved with folk music during the late 60s and early 70s.
