rappers these days seem to be creating protoges as a career-preservation strategy. luke's talked about young thug doing it. gucci's been the most successful example.

By light years

It's interesting Craner and Amis. When Craner was growing up Martin was the writer as public figure and I think Craner without quite noticing absorbed a lot. The same hair and same blazer and jeans, very similar approach to prose.

What I like about thug is he wants to have an army of clones to thugify the entire genre. I think that's unique.

There's also the phenomenon of the master purposefully hobbling the student. Eg Chris Eubanks with his son.

kartel went after alkaline pretty immediatley. alkaline got big right around the time kartel was sentenced so it very much felt like a change of the guard. kartel was clever to weather that the way he did. cemented his status; ensured he was a bob marley and not a beenie man.

It's why I asked whether you were a Jedi Master or a Sith Lord in another thread. There are always two Sith, a master and an apprentice, and the apprentice kills the master. The Jedi just sort of hang around being nice to each other.
