Sep 10, 2020 Obviously Eminem is number one so that's out of the question. But, could a case be made that Lil Wayne is 2nd place? Wayne: - First went platinum in 1999 at a young teenager -Sold lots of albums and topped charts with the Hot Boys -Has one of highest number of Hot 100 entries of any artist in any genre of music -Declared himself the "Best Rapper Alive" while getting co-signed by other rappers, including Eminem -Had a number one song and best selling album of 2008 on top of a hot mixtape(Dedication 3) -Had Drake and Nicki Minaj blow up on his label who became superstars on their own and are still relevant today -Had one of the best selling albums again in 2011 -Made a comeback in 2018 after taking a hiatus due to Birdman's fuckery -Just dropped another number one album this year in 2020 while stilling having plans for more music I'm not even a big Wayne fan like that. I enjoy his prime music but I'll always have Nas, Em, Jay, Lupe, Pac, etc. ranked above him but his run is honestly impressive af. Only Jay-Z, Drake, and maybe Kanye are contenders imho. What do you think though? If not Wayne, who has the 2nd biggest run in hip hop after Eminem?
