Comment:  Another golden age for rap is emerging, one where the lyrics can be iffy but the sounds are astonishing. Here Post Malone, Cardi B, J. Cole, Kendrick and Playboy Carti are passed the time of pop moves in a vacuum and are deep into soundscapes od mumble rap, trap, and beyond. Meanwhile, I’ve been claiming that J. Balvin can’t crossover but if K-Pop twinks in the band BTS can, anyone can.
