When 13 of Your Favorite Rappers Talk About Their Favorite Rappers

Wale

Everyone knows where Wale's tastes fall on the comedy spectrum, what with his mixtape series based on Seinfeld, and his recruiting Jerry himself for a cameo appearnce on his recent album, The Gifted. But in a 2009 interview with okayplayerTV, he opened up about his favorite artists rapwise. The Roots' Black Thought was no. 1 on his list. "I be around a lot of rappers," he said, admitting to chronic case of star struckness. "But still with him, I can call him whenever I want and just be like 'What up,' but I don't, you know what I'm saying? Because he's Black Thought to me. He's somebody else." After Black Thought, Wale listed Jay-Z, AZ, K'naan, Little Brother, and Royce da 5'9"/Slaughterhouse as faves.
