7. New Arists v. OG’s

Yasiin says he can’t listen to everything that drops everyday, “I’m not sittin’ here – I’m not listening to all these n*ggas! Why? I can just listen to already made n*ggas! The shit just gets better with time!” Though he does acknowledge the skills possessed by artists like Jay IDK, Vince Staples and Chance The Rapper, Mos reiterates “Even in the course of the day for the artists that I do like, how much time – if I’m trying to develop myself as a useful human being – do I have to sit and be enter-fuckin-tained? And if I’m gonna just be sitting there opening myself up to be listening to some sh*t, what is it doing for me? What did I learn at the end of this? What beauty was expressed?”
