Last summer, rap veteran Fat Joe named Lil Wayne in his Top 5 Greatest Rappers of All Time list.
"That's a hard question to answer," Joe told DJ Vlad when asked who his top five favorite artists were. "I would say Big Pun, I would say KRS-One, umm, I would say Kanye West. Yeah, I would say Kanye West, umm, it changes every day. I can't really answer that question you told me. I would go with Lil Wayne. That's four. Then I like this combination, Dr. Dre and Snoop [Dogg] combination. If I could put them as one, that would be like, my top five and half." (Vlad TV)
