    Which album had more influence over the last decade of hip hop?(2010's)
    I think the argument can go both ways.

    For everyone clowning OP, Rebirth actually has started to show a pretty big impact on rap sound, but yes the obv answer is 808s. But the whole emo rap wave was heavily inspired by Rebirth

    I don’t really see it that way. I’d say emo rap was more often than not more inspired by pop punk compared to any rap. To me, Rebirth is no more than a mildly less offensive Speedin Bullet To Heaven.

    I think the whole rapper rockstar wave from Rebirth is a seminal moment in the careers of Lil Uzi, Juice Wrld and other prominent rappers of the past few years.
