Watch a new roundtable discussion from XXL, featuring Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Kodak Black, 21 Savage and Denzel Curry.
If we're talking "the new wave" (insert wave emoji), then generally, one of these five rappers is entering the discussion. All five are harbingers of a new sound in rap, sometimes met with criticism and confusion by an older generation, but generally met with acclaim if you're talking to the youth that devour their music.
Lil Uzi Vert, Yachty, Kodak Black, 21 Savage and Denzel were all paired up in the latest XXL Freshmen Roundtable, which touches on fame and fans. Each rapper also goes on to describe what type of music they make, at least from their standpoint-- "I describe myself as a feel good rapper" Uzi says. Yachty tell us, "I make positivity music, the opposite of 21," with 21 later chiming in, "I make murder music."
