“Lmao, Drake and Nicki Minaj don’t belong anywhere near this list.”
“Jay Z? FOR WHAT? RUINING SONGS?”
“Embarrassing list. Jay-Z never even had his own style or flow. Kendrick isn’t known worldwide. Nas was hot for a 4-year span. Pac is the goat. Nobody on this list is on his level. Nobody’s got statues built but Pac. Nobody’s teaching classes at universities on this list but Pac.”
“Nah, Jay-Z at 1 ain’t it. Where’s Kanye? Also, 2Pac > Kendrick Lamar easily.”
“Kendrick over Eminem is ridiculous, sorry.”
