ITT: Modern-day equivalents of old bands/artists
Maybe Smile, other than that there aren't many similarities. AnCo could never do anything like Pet Sounds, they just don't have that musical knowledge. And I even like AnCo more than Beach Boys.
Kanye changing his style had just as big an influence. Pretty much every mainstream rapper is influenced by Kanye. Believe it or not, 808s was hugely influential. There would be no Drake without it.
as long as we are claiming dylan influenced those artists, you could argue every rapper today not trying to be either MASCULINE AS FUCK or ULTRA BLACK CONSCIOUS all the time owes something to ye
that goes for chance, childish, cole, keef's sad shit, drake, that fat nigga p4k keeps hypin n shit, etc
