So, we all know the rap greats: Notorious B.I.G., 2pac, Jay-Z, Eminem, Rakim, Ice Cube, Dr. Dre, Common, Nas, Kanye, Lil Wayne (debatable) etc.
But what about the young rappers? There are countless rappers out there that aren't getting recognized. Now, I don't know whether this is because people think they're young, or their lyrics are one-dimensional and unoriginal, or they just aren't good.
Whether she's a good rapper or not, Nicki Minaj is here to stay. Furthermore, I consider Drake one of the best young rappers out there. Tyga, T.I., Big Sean, Kid Cudi, B.O.B., Wiz Khalifa and countless others have some really good songs and they are here to stay as well. Most young rappers out there are going to rap until they die, and I can't help but wonder which ones will be remembered and which ones won't. I appreciate the older generation a lot for giving us the classic hits, but someday, they might be surpassed by new up-and-coming rappers. Who will be cemented in history?
How do people feel about the new generation? What about all the "Soulja Boy"s?
