    • FaboLoso

      he didn’t forget them, if he left them off then they didn’t inspire him

    • frankwhitedc

      He beefed with game and game still take shots at him from time 2 time

  • imaginationsequation

    everyone said bleek was lazy

    • Bleed didn’t really wanna rap jay kept asking him they childhood friends

      • imaginationsequation

        I think in the beginning bleek wanted to rap, but it was too much for him. They showed it on the backstage tour

        • Yea but he also was just being a friend like nigga if u rap I’ll rap with you type shit bleek a good feature dude imo like French Montana

      he was nominated into the songwriters hall of fame and to celebrate he went on twitter to show love to everybody that inspired him throughout his career, lol so no I don’t think he was hacked.

  • Zac Chuur

    Biggie Fucking Smalls?

  • iExpectU2HateMe

    Um…I think he meant Slim Thug, not Young Thug. At least I hope lol

    • Matt Leon

      I hope too lol. I doubt Jay would mention Young Thug and not Slim Thug though

  • PlanB77

    Where’s Talib and Common? I’m hoping they were just an oversight and simply forgot to mention.

    • BrodieThaGod

      He got common on there

      • PlanB77

        Yeah saw that later – my oversight.

  • Carl King

    No Ma$e?

    • frankwhitedc

      He lyrically ended mase carrer. “This and Jay will get you mased , when I start spittin them lyrics niggas get very religious, 6 hail Marys please father forgive em” . Off top of my head so please excuse and errors or misspellings

      • Carl King

        I mean…I’d say that was inspiration…for Jay to even respond he had to be inspired “Y’all can save the chitter-chat, this and that
        This is Jay, dissing Jay will get you maced
        When I start spitting them lyrics niggas get very religious
        Six Hail Marys, ‘Please Father forgive us

        • frankwhitedc

          That wasn’t the first mase diss. I was just stating why he didn’t acknowledge mase. He don’t fuck wit him

  • FaboLoso

    lol damn no mention for the jay-z stan Game? he somewhere crying

  • GG R

    Shout out Big boi !! Everyone puts andre 3000 in their top ten. How about just saying outkast is in ur top list. Why single them out and then split them up? I never understood this… all the outkast albums are great. The only wack one might actually b the love below, andre’s record.

    • frankwhitedc

      Your smoking crack . I was with you at first but bruh the love below is a classic . And was wayyyyyyyy better then speakerbox I remember the day it came out me and my cousins was geeked to hear the double album. But when that love below played after speakerbox was taken out (cd’s then ) we used speakerbox for a coaster

  • VigarOnlineTv

  • Manny Bravo

    I was kinda surprised to see Playboi Carti, Tyler, the Creator and Mac Miller on there. Nice to see Hov embracing all styles of hip-hop.

    • BadNewzVA1984

      I was suprised to see Pastor Troy on there

      • Manny Bravo

        I didn’t even peep that. There are a lot of surprises.

  • Nick White

    Tech N9NE

  • Rodairus Nick Smith

  • Duly Doolze

    damn he never mentioned Khaled LMAO. but honestly tho, where is T-Pain at, he inspired a grammy winning song. And if he mentioning new rappers, where is Logic, Russ, and King Los. Damn Jay.
