Half a century ago, Bob Dylan shocked the music world by plugging in an electric guitar and alienating folk purists. For decades he continued to confound expectations, selling millions of records with dense, enigmatic songwriting.
Now, Mr. Dylan, the poet laureate of the rock era, has been rewarded with the Nobel Prize in Literature, an honor that elevates him into the company of T. S. Eliot, Gabriel García Márquez, Toni Morrison and Samuel Beckett.
Complex magazine reacted on Twitter by posting a picture of Eminem, NAS, Jay Z and Young Thug, saying “The 2017 Nobel Prize in Literature nominees have been announced.”
As the recent study shows Eminem is the most verbose artist of all time, so why not?! But… but… Young Thug? Really?!
