Atlanta’s Mount Rushmore became a top of increasing debate among fans following a photoshopped picture of Drake, Kendrick Lamar & J.Cole started making rounds in social media circles.
Talking about a Mount Rushmore is a bit of a stretch, given that we have many talented artists in this world who would be worthy contenders for the places, and this is why a smaller scale is a better one.
However, now that it’s down to the debate of who should be the place holder’s in Atlanta’s Rap Mount Rushmore, as the conversation was triggered by a photoshopped picture featuring Jeezy, Future, Rich Homie Quan and Lil Baby, many others have chimed into the conversation as well.
In a conversation with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club, Migos said that they belong to the Atlanta’s Rap Mount Rushmore, as they have made a lot of contributions to the rap scene in the city.
“Shout-out to the city, but all-time, though,” says Quavo to the question prompted by DJ Envy. Then Takeoff adds “We gotta have our head connected as one, so that’s one. Then I’d say Gucci, like [Quavo] said. Tip.” The rappers also put forth the names of legendary rappers such as OutKast & Lil Jon.
They count us out ’cause we in a group. t should be a little circle with all three heads like boom boom boom on that Mount Rushmore. Cause we done birthed a lot of this.The trio remarked in response to the ATL Mount Rushmore post.
Their inclusion into the ATL structure is also very relevant as they just released the third and final installment of their Culture series. Having a long range of artists being featured on the album such as Drake, Cardi B, Polo G, Future, Justin Bieber, Juice Wrld, Pop Smoke and YoungBoy Never Broke Again, the album came out on 11th June.
