Wayne of thrones.
Lil Wayne's status as a legend is indisputable at this point. In terms of musical legacy, technical prowess, prolific work ethic and the like, Weezy's name often serves as the connective tissue between two generations. It goes without saying that Mr. Carter is a fine contender for the Greatest Rapper Alive, and the case is made all-the-stronger by the success of his Young Money label. A label that helped launch the careers of Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga, whose combined presence altered the course of hip-hop music as we know it.
