Jay proved with his newest release of the Blueprint 3 he is far from being an over the hill emcee. Although it was debated it is clear he is the King of Hip Hop. With Beyonce as his queen there is really nothing Mr. Carter can't accomplish.
#2 LIL' WAYNE
In Wayne's 3rd appearance in the Top 3 over the past 3 years, Wayne has continued to remain in the spotlight and flourishing Young Money Ent. is only the forefront of what this guy has up his sleeve for the future.
Drizzy was a big surprise to us all when he landed the number 3 spot above Kanye West but Drake single handedly proved to us he belongs there. The kid is thorough and to have the buzz he has grown through his loyal fans from Degrassi and his free mixtapes, the people are on his side. Now landing a deal with Young Money Ent., Drake's album is set to be one of the biggest releases of this year.
