The Top Ten

3 Your favourite rapper

I am not a big hip hop fan so I don't really have a favorite rapper but I am interested who are some rappers that Lil Wayne has influenced? - Powell

I influenced a lot of rappers but not slim shady - Genesyis

I believe that's spoken from Lil Wayne's perspective. Eminem and Lil Wayne began their careers somewhat around the same time so they would not too much influence there. - ParasN2000

I didn't know Lil Wayne influenced Andre 3000 - Pato_cargo

It's actually the other way around, Andre 3000 influenced Lil Wayne if anything. - DaWyteNight

Hell no, he didn't influence K-Rino, Nas, Locksmith, Lil Wyte, Rakim, Big Daddy Kane or Lupe Fiasco, and if he did influence any of them he'd be a very small influence. He's influenced guys like Future, Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert, Chance the Rapper, and even Kendrick Lamar to some extent. - DaWyteNight
