Weezy stated as a lot this previous week throughout an look on Zane Lowe‘s Apple Music podcast present, the place the subject of Billboard‘s 50 Biggest Rappers of All Time — which they printed on Feb. 8 — got here up … and to LW’s shock, he clocked in at solely #7, beneath a number of others.
The outlet has Biggie, Eminem, Tupac, Nas, Kendrick Lamar and Jay-Z forward of him, respectively — however Wayne begs to vary on all of them, particularly amongst these nonetheless dwelling. He says straight up, he’s #1 … and even dares survey-takers to ask the fellows ranked greater than him how they really feel about it. In his view, he thinks they’d agree … Wayne is bigger than them.
Per standard, that is all subjective … and it’s probably not clear what kind of standards Billboard is even following in deeming anybody higher than the opposite. From the appears of it, it looks as if they’re pegging Jay as prime canine due to total success — which he’s definitely achieved.
However, for those who test Twitter … it seems many are agreeing with the notion that Wayne is, the truth is, higher than Jay-Z — each when it comes to rap ability and cultural affect, which actually needs to be how this stuff are measured.

With that stated, their numbers are comparable … Wayne has 3 #1 hits (Billboard Sizzling 100) and Jay has 4 #1s of his personal. Nevertheless, Wayne has 25 of his songs within the prime 10 traditionally, whereas Jay solely has 22 in the identical class. So, on a song-for-song foundation … they’re shut.
Even on an album depend, Jay’s 14 #1s to Wayne’s 9 (Billboard 200) has ’em virtually tied.
