Of course you can be influenced by somebody, but we have so many great hip hop artists now and we try to compare them to the older greats instead of letting them have their own lane. Not to mention these guys are and will continue to influence generations like their predecessors.
That's somethin that has ALWAYS been done. NaS was the Rakim/G Rap of his generation.

I don't think it necessarily means they are the clone but it's more of who they represent to this generation. Or what role they play in the game

Who in here is making comparisons?

Roles and comparisons aren't the same thing.

If I say lebron is the mj of this generation...that's not saying lebron is mj.

Not sure if there will EVER be a better MC than NaS, but Kendrick may be the closest one.

I'd say Kendrick is a hybrid rapper. I hear Pac/3 stacks/Common
