The greatest rapper of all time is such a subjective title. You got cats from different eras that spoke for their respective generation, plus, when you consider the newcomers that may make a lane of their own, it's d*mn near impossible to crown ONE dude the best ever.

Don't tell that to Kanye West, though. According to Big Sean Yeezy told him that one day Sean would be the greatest man to ever hold the mic.

Kanye West had some bold words to say about up-and-coming rapper, Big Sean, according to Sean himself. Sean relayed a story when Sean and Kanye were producing Sean's new album. Somewhere in the middle of those sessions Kayne pulled Sean aside and predicted big things for Sean. Sean recalls: "I'm here kickin' with 'Ye,and 'Ye tellin' me I'm gonna be the best rapper of all time." That's a bold proclamation, Kanye!(Perez Hilton)


Do YOU think Big Sean could become the greatest rapper of all time???

Gotta love The Breakfast Club. Even if you're not a fan of current radio, respect is due for the way TBC keeps it real with their guests and aren't afraid to ask the questions that other shows won't touch. Nicki Minaj recently stopped by and things got very interesting.

The wild bunch known as Power 105 1's "The Breakfast Club" had Nicki Minaj on the show to talk about everything from the criticism of people saying she's pop, how video directors tell her she should take it back to the essence, and more.(Vibe)

The Young Money star also revealed her idea of fun is a night home alone and that hardcore New York rap fans never seem to give her the respect she deserves as a NY spitter.

The Barbie also gave her opinions on how she feels about New York not fully embracing her as one of their own, how she deals with criticism from other female rappers and bloggers, and her weird relationship with Drake and Lil Wayne.(Vibe)

Does Nicki Minaj represent New York hip hop? Let us know.
