Billboard and Vibe have partnered to release a list of the greatest rappers of all time and the list is topped by multi-award-winning rapper and business mogul, Jay Z.
On Wednesday, 8th February 2023, Billboard and Vibe released the list of the greatest rappers of all time.
The list which was released in honor of Hip Hop’s 50 years anniversary had 27-times Grammy winner, Shawn Carter, also known as, Jay Z topping the list.
Speaking on the list Billboard and Vibe noted;
“So it took a lot of deliberation and deep discussion to reason our way to what we believe is a well-thought-out, authentic list that reflects hip-hop’s foundational pioneers, evolutionary trailblazers, and contemporary mainstays. In addition, that mix also encompasses 50 years of cultural milestones for a genre initially dismissed as a passing fad — and now recognized as the industry’s market-share leader.”
Meanwhile, American rapper, Rick Ross ranked Number 50, celebrated rapper and musician, Lauren Hill was ranked 30th, while commercial rapper and businessman, 50 Cent ranked 17th.
In addition, generational talent and sound shaper, Kanye West curiously failed to crack the top 10 as he ranked 11th.
