Lil Wayne includes Eminem in his top 5 rappers of all time



Eminem / Lil Wayne

In a new interview with Cam Heyward for his podcast Not Just Football, Lil Wayne was asked who are the Top 5 rappers of all time and he did not hesitate to put Drake up there with some notable Hip-Hop heavyweights, not mentioning Kendrick Lamar.

“My Top 5 rappers of all time, Lil Wayne, Weezy Babu, Tunechi…Nah, I’m f–king s–ting. My top 5 are JAY-Z, Missy Elliott, Eminem, ummm… The Notorious B.I.G. — oh, and this is no specific order right here — and Drizzy.” said the New Orleans native.

In an August interview with Billboard last year to celebrate the 50th anniversary of hip-hop, Lil Wayne said his favorite rappers were Missy, Hov, Biggie, Goodie Mob, and UGK. He shared that same list on What’s Wright? with Nick Wright in 2022. But I guess there is a difference between “Top 5 rappers of all time” and his “Top 5 favorite rappers.”

Elsewhere in the interview with Heyward, Wayne provided an update on his next major studio album, Tha Carter VI. “Carter VI when? I don’t remember that, actually. It’s soon, though, because it’s what’s next from me. It’s coming out next, actually. I’m not sure of the actual date but it is my next project.” Later on he said the record is complete and he’s editing it down now. “It’s been done,” Lil Wayne said. You can watch the video below:
