Young thug should be considered a top 3 rapper by everyone. He has the most original flow in the game, doesn't confine himself to 90s pleb rap. Doesn't confine himself to pleb conscious rap. He will be considered a top 3 rapper of this generation, try to prove me wrong, you can't.
People forget what makes an MC an MC. An MC has two elements: delivery and lyrics. The best MC should have the best combination of those. Tech N9ne has better delivery than ANYONE. EVER. BY WAY FAR. I don't think his lyrics are quite the most complex, but his rhyme schemes are crazy. Pay attention to what words rhyme and you can tell. That being said, his lyrics are still some of the best ever. I think only Eminem, Lupe, Pac, and Nas can compare in lyrics.
Here are some things that are included in this argument that have nothing to do with being a great M popularity, impact on the game, beats, sales, and awards. Those all have to do with money. Tech didn't go for a major record deal, because he wanted to do his own thing. Therefore, he doesn't have money to spend on high-profile producers or advertising. This also means he's not as widely known, popular, high-selling, and he can't make much of an impact on the game. This is about to change though, as he seems to be becoming a big name.
I believe when we look at the mid 10s retrospectively, the most important and influential rappers will be kendrick, drake, and young thug. This depends on vft6 and hitunes and how good they are, but I'm betting they'll solidify their places in hh history
1st off you lost major points saying Pac is lyrical what?? hes nice but his lyrical content cant even compare to the others you listed
2nd..wtf is this thread on?? Young thug is great but at the moment he isnt even the best rapper noted by the game...Drake, Kendrick, J Cole, and countless others are surpassing him! This thread is full of plebs
NEW ALBUM WHEN
I've never been this excited about upcoming albums before, thugger is like the first artist i give a shit about at all
also he gotta be the CUTEST black rapper ever, all the others are just manly gorillas
