Desiigner is the latest young "artist" to distance himself from the rap/Hip Hop label.

“None of my dudes I chill with are rappers. I don’t put us as rappers. We’re all artists,” Desiigner said in a video for TIDAL's DNA series. “In the G.O.O.D. Music camp, we all come around and we show ourselves and present ourselves as artists only.”
The 19-year old added that he really enjoys signing.

Last year, Fetty Wap -- who also came out of nowhere on the strength of a melody-driven hit -- distanced himself from the entire Hip Hop label.

“I don’t necessarily call my music Hip Hop, I just call it Fetty Wap. I’m a melody person. … I make melodies and add flavor to it," he told Angie Martinez.
What do you think of this new school's discomfort with traditional labels?
