11. 21 Savage/ Lil Yachty/ Lil Uzi Vert
I’m going to go ahead and combine all of these kids into one category because my opinion on one applies to all of them. At first glance, these three look and sound mega weird but that’s the point. No, they’re obviously not the greatest rappers. If you want to listen to rappity rap then by all means, go ahead. The exisntence of Lil Uzi Vert doesn’t suddenly erase Talib Kweli from your Spotify.
These three make fun music that makes me wish I was in high school again doing dumb shit. Plus, they have such strong relationships with other people in rap that you know their album features are going to be fire. Add Young Thug and Metro Boomin to anything and you have the perfect record.
