 Billboard & Vibe name Jay Z as the greatest rapper of all time

Billboard in partnership with Vibe have released the list of the greatest rappers of all.

The released list was topped by American billionaire, business mogul and multiple award winning rapper Jay Z. 

This compiled list which was released by Billboard on 8th February 2023, was to celebrate and crown the 50th anniversary of the Hip Hop genre.

Giving more details on how the list was compiled Billboard together with Vibe said;

"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."

Some popular rappers like Rick Ross was placed on the 50th position, Lauren Hill took the 30th place, and 50 Cent taking the 17th position on the list.

Many people were surprised to see Kanye West not listed among the first top rappers as he was placed  11th.

Listing from the top ten rappers on the list, Nicki Minaj was seen at the 10th position, followed by Snoop Dogg, Drake, Lil Wayne, The Notorious B.I.G, Eminem, Tu Pac, Nas, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z in that order.

Nicki Minaj is the only female rapper to be listed among the male rappers. This makes her the highest ranking female rapper.
