Slick Rick. Slick Rick talked you into rearranging your closet. Slick Rick told you you looked terrible, but you listened to [him] anyway. And that’s the best sh*t in the world to do. The whole record is about how uncool you are and how cool he is. And then you go out and ride around to it like that’s the best sh*t.

Young Jeezy. I’m not even going to front. I like Young Jeezy’s music and really loved his album, The Recession. That’s actually one of my favorite albums ever. I like Young Jeezy a lot.

Snoop Dogg. Snoop was the original in-the-cut rapper. He was about that smoking and rapping, but [his music] was always about just chilling out. It was really laid back. He was on the handlebars, on beach cruisers with a f*cking hockey jerseys on, rapping in his videos. It was the chilling sh*t and that’s the best. When you’re not making the sh*t up, it’s easy to rap. So I respect that.

Rick Ross. I really like Ross’ music these days, too. I’m a big fan of powerful music and that’s what I feel when I listen to Ross. Any artist that puts out powerful music, I’m a fan of them, so Ross has got to be in there.

DJ Quik. He was the man. DJ Quik had the f*cking ill voice, just like Eazy-E. Quik had a f*cking hot voice and really good production. He used to do it himself and even put grooves into the music.

Fabolous. Fab is someone else that’s been out recently and he’s always put out powerful music. He’s able to do that music for the women but he can still make street records too. I really like what Fab has been able to do.

Soulja Slim. Soulja Slim was my hero from New Orleans. He’s no longer here with us. He showed me the strength of what you could do independently. He was signed to No Limit and then went on to go do a lot of sh*t independently. He signed with Koch, and all of that was huge because of everything he went through. I feel like my situation was really similar. I got motivated from what he did.

Jadakiss. Jada has to be in everybody’s Top 5. He’s one of the best to ever do it. I definitely think he’s one of the best and he’s been one of the best for a long time as well.

Andre 3000. Andre is a f*cking genius. He can make any kind of music. He’ll bend himself to any style and master it. You won’t hear it until it’s super-tight, like The Love Below album. But then, he’ll write the craziest verse that’ll just make you not want to rap. You can listen to him and say, “So what am I really doing? Why do people even like my sh*t again? Like, what have I done?” That’s why he’s amazing.

Lil Wayne. You can’t help but give it up to Lil Wayne. He’s been going in since those Cash Money days and he’s still going in now. He’s been working really hard. He’s got his record label going on, Young Money is up and running, looking really good now. He’s really been able to put his money up and do a lot for hip-hop.
