I definitely can’t say that I always agree with Charlamagne, but this list isn’t bad.. although I’d definitely add Lil’ Kim to rep for the ladies.
Buckle up, it’s one of those conversations that everyone gets in their feelings over opinions and a list again. Charlamagne Tha God has once again chimed in on a debate about top rappers. We’ve previously reported on hot takes regarding who is the greatest etc, and these rankings alway cause riots of conversations within Hip Hop circles.
In a recent episode of his Brilliant Idiots podcast, Charlamagne Tha God introduced his list of most influential rappers. “I’m not gon’ say the number order, but it’s four: Kanye, Jay, Pac, Wayne,” he said of West, Shakur, Hov, and Weezy. “Four most influential rappers of all time.”
For some reason one of his co-hosts suggested that Chief Keef should be added to the list, but Charlamagne wasn’t convinced.
“You know why I don’t put Chief Keef in there? Because Chief Keef didn’t influence like, the world,” he said of the Chicago star. “He influenced a sound of a region. He didn’t influence the world. Those four people I named literally influenced people all over the world.”
Of course, this is sure to get Hip Hop fans talking. Take a look at the clip below and let us know if you agree with Charla’s picks. Would you add or remove anyone?
