    Chief Keef, Wayne and Lil B are the most influential artists of this generation of rap

    There would be no Drake if Kanye didnt make 808s. And considering the biggest artists in this era of rap include Lil Uzi Vert, Future, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, anf ASAP Rocky among others and even guys like Tay-K, Trippie Redd, and XXXtentacion who are all influenced by either one of both of or all three of Wayne, Lil B, and Keef, their amount of influence on this generation is greater than Kanye's
