Drake’s “Honestly, Nevermind” has people all across the industry sharing their thoughts.
“You think Drake putting out a dance album gets us closer to the elimination of rap music as a whole?” the host asked the rapper around the 1:57:00 mark of the episode. “I did that in 2017, n*ggas was on me,” Staples quickly responded.
“That Big Fish Theory, n*ggas was mad at that, ‘What’s up with this n*gga?'” he imitated his haters at the time before going on to describe Champagne Papi’s seventh studio album as something that’s very “visual” to him, adding that artists correlate with certain images in his brain, such as Michael Jackson and the moonwalk.
“So when you think about where music is heading, everything is Instagram,” the Compton native explained. “Everything looks the same, everything moves the same, everyone dresses the same, everyone talks the same. So the genre shit is gonna have to go out the window eventually.”

He added, “It’s too hard to separate culture because the internet is kinda pushing everything in the same little bubble.”
