    RetiredAccount Big Time Stuntin Like My Daddy

    Introduction
    Hi all, and welcome to the new (final) Yay or Nay thread. We got some changes coming to Yay or Nay - we will start tracking the results here in the original post.

    How It Works
    Yay or Nay is a simple concept. Each week, there will be a prompt (Example: Lil Baby was the best rapper of 2020) - I will ask 'yay or nay', and people will vote whether they agree (yay) or disagree (nay) with the statement. At the end of the week I will tally the votes and we will see whether the forum believes the statement was true or false.

    Results
    Week One - 'Kanye West is the most influential artist of the 21st century, yay or nay?' - The Ayys have it (9-6)
    Week Two - 'Jack Harlow is currently the best white rapper, yay or nay?' - The Nays have it (0-8)
    Week Three - 'It's Dark and h--- is Hot > Reasonable Doubt, yay or nay?' (cc: @Antman ) - Results TBD

    Depends if we’re talking rap or artist in general. If we’re talking in general? Yes, he’s had an influence on almost every aspect of culture for the past 20 years. We’re talking just in rap? Almost every modern sound can be traced back to Wayne, like boo said. I’m going to give it a yay ( a Ye) regardless

    Yay. He has had a huge impact on music, the fashion world, and art too. I can't really think of anyone who comes close.

    eight or ten years ago people would have rushed to agree, but now i’m going to go nay.

    he’s always been a synthesist (from his own mouth—this is not a value judgment). the soul beats he and just blaze revived definitely had a moment in the 2000s, and 808s probably had an even deeper effect on the sound of pop rap. his whole self-effacing-but-also-self-centered, softer persona was definitely a model people tried to replicate after he came out.

    but it seems clear, a decade removed from kanye’s creative peak, that wayne is the more influential rapper by leaps and bounds. by 2016–i’m picking that arbitrarily because it was five years ago—the five biggest rappers in the world save these guys were probably kendrick, future, chance, drake, and thug. four of those guys (drake, chance, kendrick, and thug) are DIRECT descendants of wayne.

    You wouldn't say Future's a direct descendent of Wayne?
