Is It Harder for a Rapper’s Kid to Make It?, Future More Classics Than Nas? | Everyday Struggle

  • Published: 04 September 2019
  • On Wedesday’s (Sept. 4) episode of #EverydayStruggle, Nadeska, Wayno and DJ Akademiks start off the show discussing a recent clip from ‘Growing Up Hip-Hop,’ where Fat Joe explains why it’s hard for kids of successful rappers to make it in the rap game. Afterwards, the crew speaks on the recent comments made by Akon during his Breakfast Club interview where claims that some artists don’t live up to their full potential. Then, the EDS trio shares their thoughts on Lonzo Ball saying that Future has more hits than Nas, and explain how its ok to grow up admiring the hot artist of your generation. Later in the show, the crew dissect some tweets from Ebro and Meek Mill in their ‘Big Facts or B.S.???’ segment. Soon after, the EDS trio answers a fan question about new artists promoting their music without the help of Soundcloud, and to close out the show the crew talks about the Roc Nation and NFL campaign that will take place this week in Chicago.

            How dare this coke head nigga even come out his mouth to say some shit like Nas aint better than future??? This nigga has no taste in music and thats also why his music is GABBAGE AF!!! Cancel this nigga man. Nas make real music with professional quality, melodies, stories, lessons, real life events, etc. Future make microwave turn up music. Thats two different lanes. Lonzo need to shut TF up and worry about dribbling that damn ball.

                                                      Nas is a hip hop artist & Future is a rapper big difference. Don’t know why people can’t understand it’s a difference between from rap & hip hop.

                                                        Hate the stereotype that a musician(singers can come from a poor or good upbringing) especially a rapper has to come from a poor upbringing to be able to rap. False statement. Take a look at Drake, the #1 rapper/hip hop artist of his generation. Came from a good upbringing. The opposite of what the meaning of a rapper is defined has.

                                                              It's hard to be a rapper's child to make it because of the story. It's best for them to be lazy and live off the spoils or if they do music, get out of America.

We're getting a lot of artists who don't have that much substance in their content but can put a catchy song together. That shit's not going to last. That's why we're getting a new "lil" somebody every month. Unfortunately (or fortunately) kids are growing up during this era so we can't exactly expect to hear anything different from their opinions. Just enjoy the music and accept the short term for what it is, and our artists with longevity will live on. There will always be evolution.

U got pro-black mfs, next too rich white kids, and everybody in-between. I went to a future concert and it was full of teens mostly white, had a few black people but 90% of white kids, I think his black fans in attendance was his early unground fans like myself.
