[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 Webstar unleashed his fave rappers, rapper/singer Hazel-E undresses her top artists.]
Madonna. She’s a legend. She’s my Michael Jackson. So what people feel about Michael Jackson, is how I feel about Madonna. ‘Like A Virgin’, ‘Express Yourself,’ she was that girl. She is the best to me and the best that ever did it.
Kanye West. The Watch the Throne tour, to me, felt like Jay-Z was handing over his throne to Kanye West. I was like he was co-signing Kanye as the next dude to take over the game and I understand why because he’s a genius. Musically, everything he’s done, I’ve liked. I know he’s going to keep growing as an artist.
Lil Kim. Out of all the female rappers, Foxy Brown and Amil, she was just that girl to me.
Fergie. She’s my inspiration. I love Fergie. She’s everything to me.
M.I.A. Her flow is retarded. Her flow is sick. Her content is dope to me, she’s an intelligent girl and I like her movement. I like what she stands for.
