PHONTE from Little Brother is a Way better Rapper and singer than drake. Lyrically and Flowwise. Chk him out if you been sleeping. Dude can actually sing and doesnt resort to using auto to and cheap 1 liners.

Drake, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, and many of the other younger generation ALWAYS give props to Bone for being their inspiration. Even Nelly and Flo-Rida.

Drake said it in his Katie Couric interview, Wiz says it all the time. Same with Kid Cudi. They even play Bone songs during their performance.

So I have a feeling that there's a misquote or misunderstanding regarding this. Bone made artists want to rap fast, melodic, and sing. Even R&B singers tried mimicking their style.

Maybe other artists did it on a lower scale, but no one can deny the influence Bone's overall style had on the industry in the 90s. It was groundbreaking. There's a reason why Bone and Outkast are the top selling groups of all time in Hip Hop history. They introduced a new sound and style to the industry. It's the same reason why Wu Tang had such a great impact. Listeners gravitate towards something they feel is "fresh" and "new" to to them.

I understand his point.. And i agree...

Who else drew so much respect on both rap and rnb where you had a gaurenteed gold single with him/her singing or rapping?

Im sorry, its drake.

Yeah lboogie or nelly or wyclef did both but not nearly as much and they werent as succesful doing both... Drake literally guest stars as a hook/bridge singer and wont even rap sometimes, yet you're still satisfied at the end of the day

Im NOT saying that drake is the beat rapper or singer but he has the ability to write very successful songs singing or rapping

/thread
Even if they weren't as successful but they were still successful doing it. Drake isn't saying he was the most successful, he's saying he's the first which is false, in my opinion.

Nelly, Lauryn Hill, Bone Thugs were all successful in doing it.

I seriously doubt that Drake was even allowed to listen to Bone Thugs. But how did he miss 808's and Heartbreaks ?
