There's something a disconnect between the mumble rappers today and the rappers who enunciate properly that came before them.
You can see it when Lil Yachty dismisses Tupac and Biggie, or when Eminem (through Rick Rubin) makes it clear he's not rocking with all the slurred-speech kids and their amazing technicolor hair.
Millennial Kendrick Lamar is trying to bridge a gap between the generations. He spoke respectfully on mumble rap in his interview for this month's Forbes 30 Under 30 cover article.
In the article, we also learn that Kendrick has earned $78.5 million over the past five years, including a career-best $30 million this year.
So he's a good man to listen to.
