    Yall are ridiculous and don't realize that Drake is this generations artists. He is like this generations Jay Z I view Kendrick as this generations type of Nas. Drake is a great MC better rapper than most. But he's obviously going for a more commercial outlook on the line. If you can appreciate the commercial marketable rap You can appreciate Drake. Plus Drake with the singing is into more genre bending as he is a mix of rap and R&B

    Anyone who says Drake sucks shows they have very little understanding of music in general That opinion isn't even logical

    This is bullshit... saying someone sucks is a matter of taste... not logic... you can't judge music empirically... it's always subjective... that's what elitist snobs do.

    Nope... I like Kendrick, Jay Z, Nas, etc... they're all popular... my musical sensibilities have more to do with what connects to me personally... I really don't like Drake's singing... I feel the same way about Cee-Lo, Mos Def and Andre3000... I prefer raw hip hop.

    naw I might not have been clear with how I phrased it, cause I of course know Impact is more broad than sales...I am just saying that this is where many opinions are stated as fact, usually because of how broad and large an influence is....Be fair though, sales and colabs impact very much, just in certain ways

    Sales impact marketing decisions... collabos are usually influenced by sales... everybody wants to do a record with the "HOT" rapper of the moment... not necessarily the most skilled... because doing records with hot rappers influences their sales, as well... sometimes, those collabos are forced upon the artist by the record company... "look, we're gettin' Rick Ross on this record so we can attract so-and-so"...

    Illmatic didn't sell very well in the beginning, but it influenced a whole generation of New York emcees... how many people did Hammer influence?

    You can't say because somebody sells well that they'll automatically have impact on the styles of other artists... I almost don't even consider copycats and clones "artists"... they don't last.

    I see what you're saying, though... but I don't think it's quantifiable in a direct ratio... it's a correlation-causation fallacy... because how do you know the artists who were influenced by Jay Z wouldn't be influenced by him if he never made it big?

    Rap music didn't really have numerous platinum artists until the mid '90s... but there were numerous impactful artists prior to that.... the more sales meant the more pop you were and that meant the less hip hop you were... this is why so many say that hip hop is dead... pop is not hip hop.

    I remember when rap was not in the pop scene so much at all....It was a young genre, and still was finding itself....now it found everyone, and new generations are building from that influence...

    selling well doesn't always mean a huge style influence, but it often is tied in...
