Lil Wayne Names His Top 5 & Missy Heads The Pack

Lil Wayne was a recent guest on What’s Wright? With Nick Wright. There, the FOX Sports commenter and the New Orleans, Louisiana Rap superstar discussed the Green Bay Packers, Rap peers, and more. For Hip-Hop Heads, Wayne was asked to offer his Top 5 rappers list.

“I got…for me, first: it’s always gonna be first Missy Elliott. She’s a huge influence of everything I’ve ever done. JAY-Z is the best ever to speak. And Biggie, obviously. Then I have the whole—as a whole—I have Goodie Mob.” He is referring to Big Gipp, Khujo Goodie, T-Mo, and CeeLo Green. “And then I have UGK.” UGK was the longtime Port Arthur, Texas union of Bun B and the late Pimp C.

Nick Wright, who included Wayne on his own list, mentions that Wayne omits himself. “Nah; I can’t touch them guys,” the guest says. “I would never put myself in my list,” adds the artist who has not been bashful in the past regarding the “Best Rapper Alive” label.

This week, Missy Elliot reacted to the praise with gratitude:

JAY-Z Has Dissed More People Than Any Other MC

Notably, Missy and Lil Wayne have not released a song together. The Virginia MC/producer featured two other Hot Boys members, Juvenile and B.G., on 1998’s “U Can’t Resist.” While Wayne’s career was taking flight just as The Notorious B.I.G. was killed, he has worked with Biggie’s friend and fellow Brooklyn native JAY-Z. They’ve appeared on Wayne’s “Mr. Carter,” Jay’s “Hello Brooklyn 2.0,” and T.I.’s “Swagga Like Us.” Wayne worked with UGK’s Bun B and Pimp C separately, including Drake’s “Uptown” and Paul Wall’s “4 Corner.” Wayne has yet to work with the four members of Goodie Mob.

Last year, Lil Wayne last released Trust Fund Babies, with Rich The Kid. Since 2020, he has collaborated with DMX, Tech N9ne, Westside Gunn, and Run The Jewels.
