Ep.200 - "Rapper" or "Artist"

On Ep.200 of DITD: Lil Yachty's comments on being taken seriously, reignited a decades old dialogue.
Off the back of Lil Yachty's new album, he made a comment about "wanting to be seen as an artist". This led to responses like this. We broke down the multi-layered conversation that is decades old and spans genres: Labels, eras, the leaders of said eras and what happens when they do something different.
