Often grouped together as a cultural ill, the concept of “mumble rap” dominated the hip-hop narrative for years at a time. Once viewed as one sub-category of the artform by those who reviled it rather than a collection of artists all striving towards individual goals, today ‘mumble rap’ is no longer a term that harbors any shred of validity to it.
