Default Rap Tracks on Heart & Soul?

Am I the only one that doesn't appreciate some of the records on Heart & Soul that include a rapper in the middle? The most obvious of these is Jamie Foxx - Extravaganza (which is already a bad song before the rap) where Kanye West raps a verse. There's been others I've heard too.

What's the harm in NOT playing it? Or at least finding/creating an edit without it? Since Heart & Soul is the only contemporary R&B channel is it too much to ask to not include any hip-hop? :\

Sure makes me miss Slow Jamz even more!

Sirius plays the songs the way the artist intended them to be heard.

I'm starting to think that the people at Sirius can't or don't know how to make the distinction between Rap and R&B - They are not the same!!! I actually think JF's song isn't that bad, but the rap part kills it. Remember when Luther Vandross had a rap in one of his songs? Bad.

Common- Come Close is one of my favorite tracks ever and it's only played on Heart and Soul.

Rap/Hip-Hop has NO business on Heart & Soul or Soul Town.As a matter of fact I wish they would move ALL the slow jamz to movin` easy or some other channel.

If they did that, it would become, a "FUNK" channel. They wouldnt do that. It might make too many people happy.
