Lil Wayne Reacts To His Placement On Billboard's Greatest Rappers List Says He Should Be No. 1 - WhatsOnRap

Lil Wayne Says He Should Be No. 1 on Billboard's Greatest Rappers List: 'Who the Hell Is Before Me?'

Lil Wayne labeled himself the "Best Rapper Alive" on his 2005 album Tha Carter II, and he still believes he merits the title 17 years later.

Weezy confirmed his GOAT status when weighing in on Billboard's Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All Time, fresh off the release of his new track "Kant Nobody" featuring DMX.

When he spoke with Apple Music's Zane Lowe, he was informed that he was ranked seventh on the list, after JAY-Z, Nas, and Eminem.

“Man, who the hell is before me? Was the list including ALLLL hip-hop, like before and after as well?” Wayne asked.

He declared himself the GOAT after displaying some humility ("I can deal with it") and implying that his peers would agree.

“I will tell you that I am a motherfu**ing 1. Everybody whose names you named, they also know I’m number one. Go ask ’em. They know what it is,” added Wayne. Yet, the Young Money leader does not consider his profession as a competition.

“This is creativity. No one gets behind a mic, approaches a song and says ‘I’m making a song so it can be better than this one,'” he said. “If we all approached it that way, yeah it’d be a competition. This is creativity. Any individual who creates, this is their individuality. They’re putting their growth and creativity out there for you to enjoy. But we also know this is what the world does, so we have no problem with it.”
