It’s official, Rolling Stone has crowned Eminem as the King of Hip-Hop; based on album sales, YouTube views and social-media. scores. I couldn’t agree more, Eminem is one the greatest rappers to have ever lived. But I’m disappointed this list was based on album sales and Youtube views. Who in gods name actually listens to Gucci Mane and Waka Flocka? Now that’s just plain pathetic, Only a few rappers on this list are actually talented which is embarrassing. No matter, as long as Eminem was rightfully placed as king it’s alright. If Lil Wayne was actually at the top, I’d have been disgusted beyond belief.
Here are the top 20:
1. Eminem, 2. Lil Wayne, 3. Drake, 4. Kanye West, 5. Jay-Z, 6. Nicki Minaj, 7. Rick Ross, 8. Ludacris, 9. Gucci Mane, 10. T.I., 11. Snoop Dogg, 12. Diddy, 13. Pitbull, 14. Fabolous, 15. Wiz Khalifa, 16. B.o.B, 17. Waka Flocka Flame, 18. Lupe Fiasco, 19. Kid Cudi, 20. Big Boi
