  • ⚜️BATMAN🛡

    It’s sad that all these new generation rappers are all influenced by Wayne but didn’t absorb the best qualities of his style.

    1. Wittiness
    2. Wordplay
    3. Punchlines
    4. Unique flow on different beats
    5. Melodies

    • CarterBoy

      Facts

    • Justin Cayz

      They all say they were influenced by wayne but all they do is cut off consonants and make new words or just mumble. Smh. Disgrace.

    • Sparks

      You almost right. But nigga these new generation rappers are all about melodies and different flows. So I think it’s save to save they picked those up.

      • ⚜️BATMAN🛡

        Okay let me clarify, when Wayne raps he uses all of those elements, and that is why he changed the game. Yes, these new rappers of today use one or two of those five elements, however the way they use those techniques sound watered down, with no substance and without showing any sort of level of maturity.

    • Gudda Gudda

      you noticed how all these “new rappers” have dreads and face tattoos too?

    • dharma

      Rappers this days only have 4 and 5.

    • JerseyBoyE

      Facts💯

  • Raz!

    • Lil Mk vert 🖕🙄🖕

      He never said that

      • Gudda Gudda

        he did but he was repeating what Kodak said

    • Lil Mk vert 🖕🙄🖕

      Kodak who said that crack head

    • CarterBoy

      He was copying Kodak I think

  • Lil Mk vert 🖕🙄🖕

    Xxtentacion 🔥

    • CarterBoy

      No lol

    • TrukFitNANCY

      • Gudda Gudda

        • TrukFitNANCY

          what tampons do you buy? 😂

  • CarterBoy

    New rappers suck and this guy proves my point

  • Justin Cayz

    Modern pop music is so trash I swear I have just given up.

    • Gudda Gudda
