[Each week, SOHH asks two entertainment personalities to name their Top 5 rappers of all-time. To make things tricky, we've created a "Hall of Fame" of emcees (see right) who are universally respected and therefore may not be mentioned. After Avery Storm revealed his fave five, R&B singer Bobby V dishes out his top picks.]

p-drake.jpgDrake. [He] the shit. I'm kinda mad at Drake 'cause he takin my job. He's singin' and rappin', so he makin' it tough for me. He do it all. I rock with Drake a lot. A lot of his records, I'm definitely like, "Yea," when it come to Drake. He makes good music.

Andre 3000Andre 3000. I like people that's on that whole vibe. [He] loves music. Like [he] could be an R&B artist almost because he's musical, you know. I ain't no big rap head like that, but I do really respect the rappers that get into real music.

p-rick-ross.jpgRick Ross. Ross, he makes really good albums, you know what I'm saying. His singles and stuff, they're kinda like more club records or radio records but his albums--he makes really good albums. That's one thing I can say I can [attribute] to Rick Ross is I can tell his albums are really put together. They're not just thrown together. They always have thought.

p-nicki-minaj.jpgNicki Minaj. I would say her because for her to be the only female in a male-dominated...when it comes to hip-hop...it's very hard for females to make it in music, but it's even harder for them to make it in rap. I applaud her and I really look up to her because she's a female doin' her thing in a male-dominated game. When females started rappin'...people don't really take females seriously, but she made a statement to be like, Ya'll gonna take me serious, you know. Like I can spit bars with the rest of 'em.

JadakissJadakiss. He's a pure MC. If somebody asked me the definition of an MC, it's Jadakiss. Like, he's a real rapper.
