Future says that he is the best rapper dead or alive.
On Thursday night, Future made a bold statement on Instagram saying he is in the top five rappers dead or alive category and he is number one. The top five in hip-hop is a never-ending debate, and some names are always being mentioned in the covetous category. Among the dead rappers whose names are always mentioned includes Tupac Shakur and Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls.
Lil Wayne has long proclaimed himself as the best rapper alive, and among the current generations of rap, Drake, Kendrick Lamar, and J. Cole have all been mentioned in the top five category. Where does this leave Future? “Top 5 dead or alive and I’m #1,” he wrote on Instagram in the caption of a photo of himself.
The Atlanta rapper has no doubt have an impressive run in hip-hop over the past couple of years, but Drake has created a dynasty for himself in rap. Kendrick Lamar also cemented himself in hip-hop history as one of the greatest, and he also got the record sales to back up his status is modern hip-hop.
Some veterans like JAY-Z and Lil Wayne are still putting up big numbers in terms of record sales. Last year, Hov had one of the biggest rap albums on the planet, and this year, Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter V” is one of the biggest albums of the year.
Perhaps this argument is one for the fans to decide so let’s hear some of what they are saying. “Pluto am a fan but your not even top five dead or alive much less number, maybe top five trappers but not rappers just saying,” one fan wrote while another added, “Naan homie your not even counted when it comes to top ten.”
There are a lot of fans who also agree with him about being top five dead or alive.
