Drake? Eminem? Kanye?! Who is the Real King of Hip-Hop?
Rolling Stone already declared Lady Gaga as the Queen of Pop by a long shot. But considering the ultimate King of Pop will forever be Michael Jackson, it looks like the mag opted to find the true King of Hip-Hop instead. Now that’s some stiff competition. Jay Z, Eminem, Lil Wayne, and Kanye completely dominated the hip-hop world for years. But recently, names such as Pitbull, Drake, and even our girl Nicki Minaj began to take over the hip-hop scene. We don’t think we could ever make this decision, so thanks, Rolling Stone editors for making it for us!
And the King of Hip-Hop is…
Eminem! But it was a close call this time. According to the mag:
“Unlike our Queen of Pop ranking, which Lady Gaga took in a walk, Marshall Mathers’s win was somewhat closer – note the fairly tight point range among [Eminem, Lil Wayne and Drake]. With his second album due later this year, [Drake]’s got a shot at stealing the title by 2012.”
Here are the Top 6:
2. Lil Wayne
4. Kanye West
6. Nicki Minaj
