Better than a lot of indie rappers that are big right now. Better lyrics, better beats, and better talent.

Hahaha what?! Just what?!
yeah, I'm not saying he is the best rapper in the world, but he's a lot better than people give him credit for. CG is better than 100% better than Tyga, Odd Future and Tyler the Creator without a doubt.

So those are your benchmarks for "Indie rap"
no, not really. Those were just rappers I think are worse than CG.
I admit that indie probably wasn't the best word to use.

Just curious, what would you recommend as good "indie" (or I guess we can use the word scene) rap to check out? I know POS and if old gym class heroes count but that's it...
Aesop Rock, P.O.S, Earl Sweatshirt (even though he is in Odd Future, he's the only one I think has talent outside of it), Das Racist is alright, an Theophilus London are some I can think off the top of my head.

Los is pretty good too, not indie but a lot better than a lot of popular shit out there right now.

ASAP isn't really indie to me. More of a Tyler, the Creator/Kid Cudi rip off to me.

Then you dont have ears
They both do that stupid low voice speaking part and his beats kind of sound like simpler old Kid Cudi. I don't know how you can't hear the Tyler resemblance.

Nope.

Also, looks like you have nothing to offer here from the looks of your recommendations and classifications too. I stopped taking you seriously at your original comment and then really stopped taking you seriously when you said Tyga was indie. Please educate yourself. CG is bubblegum and his lyrics are not great. I like him and even I can admit this.

A lot of the talent lies in his partner Ludwig. Glover is a great showman though.

I never said anything about Tyga being indie and I also said somewhere indie wasn't the greatest word to use. And even though a low voice was present, it's obvious that Tyler capitalized on that and now people see the appeal and success of it.
