    ayy, its your boy. Wanted to introduce a new series that we can either update here, or make sometimes as new threads: Yay or Nay. ima give a prompt and tag members, who can either just respond with a Yay or Nay. (Or, explain their position, rebut others, etcera.) So here we go:


    ..
    Prompt: Fetty Wap was before his time.

    Cool idea

    I vote nay on Fetty Wap, he was running with a style that was already established at the time and people like Ty$ were taking to more interesting places

    Nay, even though he is 2015s poster child and a hero for everyone who was attending school dances this year.

    Fetty Wap is great—I still listen to joints off his first album this day. But I'm voting nay as well—as @Winter said, that type of music was already fairly popular. Though he def helped push it to the mainstream even further.

    Nay he will be the first to tell you he was inspired by Future and Gucci who were laying the foundations for his style long before

    fetty is still a fan favorite, but he isn’t as original as you think, but is he one of the best to use that style? absolutely

    Ok I was gonna say nay but f--- y’all, yay

    Most of these points are solid, as @M.I.C. and @Winter correctly pointed out the foundations were laid far beforehand. But, while I’m not explicitly arguing for Fetty being innovative, I would argue that these attributes alone don’t make it a “nay”. I need to preface this by saying I don’t think this a 1:1 analogy, but I’d argue you could use similar talking points against someone like thug when he was at the point of his career Fetty was in.

    Granted it’s different cuz Fetty just dropped and dipped but I just personally feel that he pushed his sound as significantly as Thug did on, say 1017 thug and the ICFNs, which i would argue were created in the same general point career-wise for them individually.

    Maybe that’s being a bit obtuse but I think that’s a fair point for why he isn’t explicitly nay just from that, personally I wouldn’t have said he was so significantly ahead of the curve as to be considered “ahead of his time” either, but I wouldn’t say it’s as much of a stretch as these posts would make it seem.
