But real talk he’s 100% right. He started everything, the game changed once he dropped. May be for worse or for better but it changed. Now there’s more people rappin, there’s people with pod cast shows who are basically journalist reporting from little ass studios reaching 100’s of thousand if not millions of online viewers. Major corporations changed their formats from physical copies of music to online steaming & so on. This dudes an icon & deserves his spot in hip hop history.
