    i remember when I got into rap it was like a thing to be in a rap group. Now I can’t even name one current rap group.

    Most of what gets rappers popular rn is a persona like Lil Pump's "harvard dropout dgaf teen" s--- or Drake being a ladies man

    Kinda hard to do that with a group, but they are really common in the underground

    True but when was the last time a group had a wave as big as Migos'? not just a collective like Odd Future, but a group. I feel like the Brockhampton wave might be a big influence in the near future also

    Yeah I agree but Migos are pretty much the only one at that level. Looking back there was Wu Tang, Dipset, Tribe Called West, Outkast, De La Soul, Three 6, etc

    Now there's Migos, that's what op was saying
