Wiz Khalifa+A$AP Rocky
Yes, artists like A$AP Rocky and Wiz Khalifa grew up on Bone Thugs, Cash Money, and Dipset, instead of on Rakim and Kane. But still, Rocky was actually named after the former, and Wiz Khalifa is a name that should make any fake Five Percenter smile. As for Trinidad James, wasn’t there gold everywhere in pre-colonial Africa? Didn’t Nas say as much in “I Can”? Maybe James listened and learned. In any case, tempus fugit, old heads. Pass the mic.
