Billboard is out with their ‘VIBE’s 50 Greatest Rappers of All-Time’ list, which has ignited a few debates and conversations amongst fans and rappers on social media! Now, Lil Wayne has contributed to the same. He secured the No. 7 position on the list, but he claimed that he could have topped the list in an interview.
“Man, who the hell is before me? Was the list including all hip-hop, like before and after as well?” he asked. “I can deal with that. I will tell you that I am a m***erf***ing one. Everybody whose names you named, they also know I’m number one. Go ask ’em. They know what it is.”
He also spoke at length about how he has managed to impact hip-hop as a genre in music. He said, “Honestly, I would say… there is a point where you look around and you’re like I’m not even sure if anyone’s coming down this road with me. Any direction I go into, it’s always inspired. Therefore I never feel alone because I always have the inspiration. Inspiration grows and I work with people that love to see growth. I’m fortunate to have these people around me. The last tour I got off was with Blink-182. At the end of the day I find myself at the country music awards and doing tours with Blink 182. There’s not a lot of rappers in this position who can say they’ve done that. I stand alone on that mountain.”
