I dislike the "who's the new ______" question because I feel like it's a disservice to the current artists and their own skills.
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.
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
