why does everyone always compare these 3?

  1. J. Cole is likely a struggling rapper, because if you observe closely, he has no chain around his neck. I think he's homeless too judging from the way he dresses man. I hope he pops off and things work out for him 🙏

  2. Cause their debut albums came out within ~3 years of each other and are all very successful, even outside of rap/hip-hop circles

  3. I wrote my final Lit thesis on these guys being "the trilogy of rap" in 2017 lol. Kendrick being the Mind, Drake being the Heart, and Cole being the Soul.

  4. Wouldn’t they be a trinity or trio, not a trilogy? Also “The _____”, like they are the definitive group of three or whatever.

  5. Because Kanye mainly blew up in the mid 2000’s and Kendrick and Drake and Cole all came on the rap scene so heavy hitting. Like Drake dropped Take Care which started solidifying him up and Kendrick dropped GKMC which put him on up and Cole was gaining the same attention with 2014 FHD. These three would then go onto run 2010’s rap that’s why they are always compared.

  6. Kendrick made you think about it, Cole made you feel empowered, Drake made you feel lesbian, but they’re not your saviors.

  7. I don’t understand why people never put Kanye in this conversation, his discography is as impressive and honestly more impressive than all of them

  8. I feel like it's mostly because Kendrick, Cole and Drake all started getting recognition around the same time whilst Ye was already one of the biggest names in Hiphop and came out in a different era compared to them.

  9. Drake became a huge star in 2011, Kendrick in 2012 and Cole in 2013. At that point Kanye was far more established with CD, LR & Graduation under his belt.

  10. Probably just that those three are more or less the same age and started at more or less the same time, Kanye's 10 years older and was already established when they came out

  11. Because Kanye was most popular in the mid 2000’s and Kendrick and Drake and Cole all came on the rap scene so heavy hitting. Like Drake dropped Take Care which started solidifying him up and Kendrick dropped GKMC which put him on up and Cole was gaining the same attention with 2014 FHD. These three would then go onto run 2010’s rap that’s why they are always compared.

  12. I don’t think understand why y’all try to shoehorn Ye into this convo? He’s been in the Industry since the nineties, and dropped his multiplatinum debut in 04 and is a well known influence on the three of them. He was well established and solidified before they made any type of noise

  13. Ye is arguably the most talented, influential and creative artist of his generation…but he is not a great rapper.

  14. Kanye also is one of, if not the greatest producer ever too. I view him at his peak as an unbelievable producer and creator of worlds. He's a great rapper too.

  15. In 2009 or 2010 Kendrick Drake J Cole Big Sean and Wale were on the cover of a magazine dubbed “leaders of the new school” or something like that

  16. fucking drake? are you serious? aubrey "lesbian" graham? are we really putting him in the same conversation? what are yall smoking?

  17. They all came up around the same time and had ties to each other in different ways whether it be inadvertently or blatantly. They’re were also the best selling for their respective lanes and had a lot of the same fanbase. So they’ve always been connected and praised as the “Big 3”.

  18. Cole and Lamar yes, but Drake? Don’t get me wrong I’m a fan but I think the other two are compared a lot because of the depth of spiritual and philosophical exploration they do through their music. I don’t feel the same about Drake.

  19. Apart from fan base, those 2 have nothing on or nowhere near Kendrick. Cole is great with features but his own albums are just above average and as for Drake, well he's making same song since 2016. I like to compare Kendrick with Freddie Gibbs and JID in the new generation of rappers.

  20. They all from same generation of rap. Back in mid 2010s you would see the influence on any rap fan from either of these rappers. they truly represent 2010s wave of rap

  21. I often compare only 1 and 3. I don’t think lyrically and as far as beats go have a I ever thought about drake in that conversation.

  22. J and K are two good argumentative topics on who’s better. But I don’t see Drake needing to be in the discussion because he been getting shared bars like he got the bottom bunk of a two man cell
