Young Thug & Chance's Impact, Next 'Drake-Level' Rapper Coming from the UK? | Everyday Struggle

  • Published: 26 August 2019
  • On Monday’s (Aug. 26) episode of #EverydayStruggle, Nadeska, Wayno and DJ Akademiks kick off the show discussing the reported beef Donald Trump’s allies have with A$AP Rocky and his camp for not publicly thanking them or the White House for helping Rocky during his Sweden case. Soon after, the EDS trio speak on the recent drama between Swae Lee and Joe Budden, where Budden heavily criticized Swae and Drake’s new collab song “Won’t Be Late.” Afterwards, the squad weigh in on Chance The Rapper confronting Ebro on why he didn’t make his Top 50 Rappers of All Time list. Later in the episode, the crew comments on Blueface’s recent Instagram post where he claims to be now a ‘2 hit wonder’ following the charting his latest single “Daddy.” Soon after, DJ Akademiks goes through the album sales and stats of this week’s Billboard charts in his segment ‘Ak By The Numbers.' To close out today’s show, the EDS trio answer a couple of ‘Struggle Mail’ questions regarding how to deal with a friend who is a ‘trash’ rapper and who’s a bigger artists: Chance or Young Thug?

                                    The comments Wayno made about the Swaelee and Drake track you can tell his not open minded to change or different sounds. That track is house music mix with a bit of Afrobeats, so calling it trash means he don't know African sounds. that track is straight fire..........

We feel as though yall American rappers don’t promote the songs if you feature on them. For example Plug Records literally just released an album called ‘Plug Talk’ with big US rappers like NBA Youngboy, future, Tory lanez and Offset mixed with big rappers from England such as Fredo, M Huncho and D Block Europe. Offset didn’t even wanna be in a music video with D Block Europe for their song so they had to use puppets. What type of violation is that. Why the fuck should our rappers have to change up our shit and voices completely for yall to fuck with us. You US people can be so up your own asses. We aren’t gonna change a thing, we successful in UK and ain’t even gotta be big over in your ends.
