    Touchy subject but something I have been thinking recently.

    If we look at the 2020s objectively.

    The biggest mainstream new act and the biggest underground new act thus far have been these guys.

    Kinda of telling. We are half way into the third year of the new decade and we cannot name a new black act that has matched what these two guys are doing.

    Is it setting precedence. We are already seeing the second wave hit as well

  • People been trying to say this for years

  • Also OP list really shows how weirdly out of touch KTT is

  • Btw I dont think its gonna be that non black rappers are gonna replace the originators of the culture.

    But I see the game being more spread out and balanced.

    Something for everybody.

  • It鈥檚 Doja鈥檚 decade.

  • Hopefully not

    Is Logic Black or Biracial?

    Its semantics. But Logic and Babytrons overall racial ambiguous look definitely play a role in their success.

    Your second half is right but I don鈥檛 necessarily think it鈥檚 all semantics. 1/8 drop rule plays into how biracial black Americans are seen. Absolutely right tho that racially ambiguous people definitely can have passes in situations darker skinned ppl can鈥檛

  • Listen I personally thought Jack鈥檚 recent album was cool but his ABC raps will not extend his career beyond his next album unless he dramatically improves as an artist

  • Nah I don鈥檛 think any more than usual

  • Cordova transcends skin colour

  • Quality bait post tbh I almost thought you were being fr

  • you really said non black and just posted some white ppl like puerto ricans arent part of inventing the genre

  • Hip hop is still one of the youngest genres but most popular. Expect more pockets to grow and more demographics to rise up.

    We just getting started

  • A Mad Ass Nigga

    Hopefully not

    had the same exact thought

  • also big cordova is on the comeup, keep your eyes peeled

  • If white people were the Lakers, Jack Harlow is our Westbrook.
