How is Little Wayne up there but not Macklemore honestly macklemore has instant classics like otherside, same love, can't hold us, white walls

How in god's name is macklemore less inspirational than Lil Wayne, will.I. am and nicki minaj?

Same love, otherside, his music has helped me a lot with things

I don't even like Macklemore but he is obviously more inspirational than Lil wayne.

43 G-Dragon

G-Dragon is one of the most popular and best K-pop rappers ever.
He cares for his fans... and he has prominent fans too! Many talented newcoming rappers name him as their idol.
Don't believe me? Listen to A BOY (my favourite one) or the songs of the boygroup BIGBANG, which he is the leader of. He has influenced the whole kpop world!

He rose to fame in 2006 following the success of his debut album, Lupe Fiasco's Food & Liquor. He also performs as the frontman of rock band Japanese Cartoon more.

How are mainstream rappers like Lil Wayne, Big Sean. etc. are on this list. Man you never heard Lupe's lyrics at all. Seriously? He raps about political/social issues and also has a great meaning associated with it.

Preach! Like I love Em don't get me wrong. But Lupe ONLY makes inspirational songs. This vote is for inspirational rappers and he needs to be top 5. Get Lil Wayne out of there. I know he's not top 5. But Wayne shouldn't even be top 100

Lupe fiasco words actually make you think and he is not a face like Drake who should not be on this list at all

All he makes is inspirational music nothing else

52 Phora

Phora's raps talk about his personal life,advice, and his depression.

Phora's music is motavational and has a true meaning! He is 100% Inspiration!...STAY TRUE..."BE YOU STAY POSTIVE AND FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS! " -Phora

I love how he's lyrcially talented...and still has a flow in his music
