Travis Scott More Impactful Than Drake Said Gotti
Is someone characterizing Drake and Travis Scott, well that could be our popular Irv Gotti who had Interview with Breakfast. During the interview last week, he raised some questions about how hip-hop has been lately.
His moment with DJ Envy although was also about how our new generation artists, how hip-hop flipped unexpectedly, you know they were talking about new rappers couldn’t deliver like 90’s hip-hop characters.
Gotti gave example and to that greatest suprise he mentioned Drake at the first place describing him as hip-hop figure, super-talented rapper with accolades. But indirectly he backtracked Travis Scott over Drake because of Scott has convinced him with masterpiece albums. So Travis Scott better than Drake ?
“You don’t see or hear from the young generation albums, impactful albums,” said Irv. “You feel impactful singles. Listen, I might even say Drake, who I love. Drizzy, I love you, you know I love you, you know what I am saying? You know, ‘Murder Inc. like my n***a Irv,’ that’s me,” he continued, referencing Drake’s lyrics on “Pound Cake / Paris Morton Music 2”.
“Aye, I love you, I love your music, but would you say Drizzy has delivered an album to that stature? Which I know he can, but I don’t know if he collectively put that energy and said, ‘I’m gonna deliver a masterpiece.’ Does Drizzy have a masterpiece?” “The only artist that I give it to, really, is Travis Scott,” Gotti went on. “That last album, that Brian McKnight or whatever, when I put that album in I was like, ‘Yo, who is this guy?’ And when I heard he produces and everything I was like, Yo, he’s incredible.’ You know what I’m saying? I feel like he’s the only artist that’s a young generational artist where I feel he put so much thought and energy into production.”
Well, watching it below then you could even hear more sayings from Irv Gotti.
Did he actually look around online before this interview ? In 2018 Travis Scott dethroned Drake and stay relevant with his Astroworld. The album was looking so fly as hit No. 1 on Billboard. All am saying is that Travis Scott‘s Astroworld ended Drake’s five-week reign atop the Billboard 200 on the strength of the second-best sales week of 2018.
Drake and Travis Scott are also biggest rap sellers over the decade but Irv Gotti is kind of being specific. You still want to compare both rap careers, then listen to their SOKO MOOD collaboration which is also part of Astrowold Billboard integral.
