Lil Wayne didn't like that Jay-Z was voted the best rapper in the industry

The results of Billboard's and Vibe's Top Rappers list were released a few weeks ago, and Jay-Z is at the top. The choice of the greatest rapper of all time comes as no surprise to Hip Hop fans; Hov has been hailed as a GOAT for years, and his worldwide impact on culture is unrivaled. From music to business, from prison reform to politics and sports – Jay and his team remain at the forefront of conversations far beyond entertainment.

However, there were artists who did not agree with the list and one of them is Lil Wayne. Jay-Z, Kendrick Lamar, Nas, Tupac, Biggie and Eminem respectively. “Man, who stood in front of me? Does this list include current and former hip hop? I can handle it. I'll tell you I'm the f--king first, In recent days, Wayne has reflected on hiring and investing in Drizzy's career when he was a young rapper.

The rapper praised the Canadian artist's persistence, vision, determination and hunger to outdo his competition. "It was easy for me," the rapper said of nurturing Drake's career. “It was obvious. I saw what he could be and would be.

It was easy for me to keep motivating and letting him know what it was. You have to see it to believe it. It was very simple. Making a song with me. It was that simple. Him knowing 'I can go blow for blow with you on a song' - that was his motivation. That's his inspiration."

All the names you've named also know that I'm number one. Ask them. They know it's the truth,” continued the rapper. Billboard highlighted Wayne's reinvention of the rap-rock sound of 2010's Rebirth, which inspired younger generation musicians like Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti.

"Lil Wayne's cultural, sonic and lyrical influence will forever be marked in hip hop by his talent as an artist and in the development of other artists." Drake, who was sponsored by Lil Wayne, also appears on the list.
