In December of last year, The Roots' Black Thought said he invented mumble rap, but now Chief Keef is taking credit for it.
On Tuesday the Chicago rapper sent a tweet asking his fans if they love him for creating what's now considered an official rap subgenre.
Do you guys love me for creating Mumble???— Glory Boy (@ChiefKeef) April 17, 2018
Is Keef right? Should he be given credit for creating the mumble rap style? Or did 46-year-old Roots rapper Black Thought come up with the Genre. You can see a few reactions to his tweet below.
