In this current climate of over-saturation, rappers are a dime a dozen and a commonality. So, the question becomes, how does one rapper differentiate themselves from the next? One may look at subject matter, where for some it is about the ostentatious lifestyle and living it up as a dream; and while for others it may be about their current reality and delving deeper into that. There are a lot of facets one can look at, to find ways to either fit in or go against the grain.
