I'm in my mid 30s so like 90% of these names are unrecognizable to me. i interpret all the ones I don't know as "literally cancer and aids."

i know yeezy though. Presumably op picked William Blair as the comp because (1) chicago, and (2) his severe mental illness

besides all his shenanigans which i personally think is due to being bipolar af and attention seeking, his catalog is one of the best

You belong in prison for including legions of illiterate drill rappers with one digit iqs but not Nas

if I were czar of the universe, way before I got to ending world hunger or whatever, I'd force you to fight 10 enraged alpha chimpanzees in a roman coliseum for my birthday personal amusement 😡 

i am 20 but there are way better new rappers than this lol. westside gunn, JID, benny the butcher, freddie gibbs to name a few. not including older rappers like DMX, MF Doom, 2Pac, Biggie, Raekwon, A Tribe Called Quest, Jay-Z, Nas, Big L, Outkast, Eazy-E is criminal

Okay grandpa, let’s get you to bed now 

as if Playboi’s beautiful melodic chaotic chirping ad libs weren’t the purest expression of energy in music ever created

Pure flow state and vibes. You can keep your 90s boom bap crap.

Lol was this made by a 14 year old

man i am 20, but the taste of most people nowadays in rap is putrid. i know people who only listen to garbage like destroy lonely. better drill rappers like T.I. and chief keef

Never thought I’d see destroy lonely on WSO. He’s actually good though

Bruh you had me snickering at my desk like an asshole when I saw Credit Suisse as Juice Wrld, I needed that laugh this morning lmao.
