Three cities. Thirty rappers. One track. The Rap Monument. Full track coming soon. We’ve already heard “bricks” (verses) from Pusha T, Danny Brown, Nipsey Hussle, Problem, Raekwon, Vado, Go Dreamer, Flatbush Zombies, and Meyhem Lauren.

Quickly glancing over some online comments it’s clear that many don’t feel Thugger should be on The Rap Monument, but frankly it wouldn’t be a proper representation of the current hip-hop climate without a name like Young Thug in the mix.
