DJ Vlad & team got a chance to sit with Lil Scrappy and they wanted him to name his TOP 5 Influential Southern Rappers. If you know your music, you know this should be a TOP 10 question, not five. Once Lil Scrappy starts answering, the other names come to his head. To see what he said, watch the video. If not, skip over.
Now here are the TOP INFLUENTIAL Southern Rappers that he named, yes, it was more than five. No Ranking.
Lil Scrappy’s Top Influential Southern Rapper
- OUTKAST (André 3000 / Big Boi) ***
- T.I. ***
- Rick Ross
- Lil Wayne ***
- Trick Daddy ***
- UGK aka Underground Kingz (Pimp C / Bun B)
- 8Ball & MJG ***
- Scarface ***
- Ludacris ***
*** Denotes that Snow Agree very strongly
Personally, I like his listing and agree with most of it. The Rick Ross one is debatable for my listing, but I strongly agree with Lil Scrappy’s mentioning of him. For you Rick Ross haters, just think about it… Remember Lil Wayne when everyone liked/loved him… He was on FIRE for like 3 years straight. Rick Ross is doing that. Those marked with “***” would’ve been the first few names out of my mouth if I was asked, and I wont repeat those names.
Okay, now it is time for MY TOP INFLUENTIAL RAPPERS. My measurements for this is simple & releative to me. I am based off Visibility, Trend, Lyrics/Production, Party, and if they forced me to listen to other “like” artists from that region. That’s fair? It better be, because I bought those records!
