    He was a streaming giant that had numbers comparable to Post Malone and Drake

    And he had only been in the game for 2 years

    He was on the downturn, his last album had flopped and he was smuggling d***s in on planes just to get by. Don't let anybody tell you different.

    Juice was on the down turn commercially before his death.

    bad take

    edit: nvm u just reetarded

  • no way

    everyone whose come up hasn’t had the distinct personality he has

    it’s all industry

    His last album went #1 on the charts, and Bandit started on the Top 10 after not dropping for most of the year

    What are you talking about my guy

  • We not gonna be around by then

    Yeah I don't think Travis has the charisma like Drake tbh

  • Juice WRLD is dead bro what are you talking about

  • Eternal Steak

    Yes by Lil Keed in 2020

  • OP f***ing weirdo

    OP f***ing weirdo

    I already spoke on that on first page my guy

  • Spicy Nachos

    Same. Especially with Sicko Mode and HITR but there's just something holding Travis back that I can't quite put into words.

    The lack of talent

    What’s industry about Drake being a guy who studies hip hop and knows more about it than probably half of ktt combined?

    He’s following foot steps of some of the greats atm

  • Travis doesn’t have a personality and even though we like to pretend his music is safe, whatever it is, it’s not safe enough to take Drake’s spot

    Look at 2010 and the decade was starting with a whole different tier of superstars. Kanye and Hov were running the game, Lil Wayne had an empire with two of the most promising young talents. Basically the superstars had proven themselves for the decade. Wayne and Ye pretty much cementing themselves at the top of the game for years and along the way had amassed great talent groups below them. Then ofc Rick Ross and MMG really started to take off so pretty much 3 massive groups with multiple stars on the roster and Drake was already destined for greatness everyone could tell.

    Now out of the 2010s there are two names which defined the decade and they are Future and Drake. However Drake has still failed to establish a truly massive and talented roster of protégés. Future is in the same boat. The two are working on their second collab which still won’t compare to WTT. Basically while they managed to be artistic leaders, they have not managed to become business leaders. The only other rappers left in the “superstar” category are Kendrick who is off doing his own stuff too and J Cole who is pretty much a niche artist.

    Then there are a small group of rappers a tier below but still undeniable stars from the decade, Young Thug, Uzi, and Travis Scott. Of these artists only Travis has actually tried to start something as a business man and it’s only just come around. Maybe he manages to break a star but it doesn’t seem likely.

    The rap game is no longer a hierarchy with the king pins and minions. It is now an ocean of creative talent

  • It's inevitable but if he's the "number one" rapper for the next five years.

    Then he had the greatest run ever.

    Interesting take

    You ever wonder why Drake has never took other rappers under his wings like Ye and Cole or even Thug?

  • probably not

    ? Drake has signed guys like Makkonen and tries with PND, Drake always looked for guys that could match his sound or complement his style.

    But anyways, the only way an artist takes over Drake is if they follow in Future’s footsteps but what Future did was expand and transform his style artistically in a way that not many artists do by their 5th or 6th project plus Future’s whole aesthetic and creative outlet was perfect for that kind of change. Of all the artists left, maybe Young Thug could do something special, or maybe Lil Uzi, but Young Thug has the right style to really expand beyond and level up like Future

    Good post then

  • Everyone's time comes and when it comes u won't even see it. One day we're just gonna be listening to a new drake single and think "damn, this dude drake really fell off"

    I'm well aware he's signed guys, but they all disappear and never really grow outside Drake's shadow.

    I guess you can't really blame Drake but it always seems artists that get under Drake end up some C list artist at OVO

  • kobebryantstan

    if we’re talking only charts then he’s gonna get dethroned by post malone real soon if not already

    Yup.
