I have a 15 year old who loves all of this so called mumble rap. Coming up in the age of EPMD, Rakim, Too $hort etc.. I know good and bad rap when I hear it but when he throws out these Spotify download numbers to me, I'm speechless nearly every time and they jump over to youtube numbers as well. He'll throw a number out then I ask him to look up one of mine. I'm always amazed, for example: Drake; God's Plan-1.4 billion In My feelings-948 million Bob Marley; Three Little Birds- 367 million Juice WRLD (his favorite); Lucid Dreams-1,034 billion Michael Jackson; Billie Jean-616 million Lil Nas X; Old Town-833 million Panini-365 million The Beatles; Here Comes the Sun-397 million Post Malone; Sunflower-1.2 billion Wow-796 million Goodby-509 million Circles-505 million Grateful Dead; Casey Jones-35 million Sublime; Santeria-291 million what I got-207 million Lil Uzi Vert; XO Tour-1.1 billion Beyoncé; Halo-715 million Ed Sheeran; Perfect-1.3 billion Shape of You-2.3 billion etc. etc. etc. I guess these rappers may actually be making the money they say they are. I don't think they are tied down to record labels etc. like back in the day. Many of these guys are making these songs for soundcloud on their laptop then getting a billion downloads. Add that to YouTube etc.. and there is money coming in. Is this list simply indicative of the age group, the future or what?
