Drake has called him the G.OA.T, Chance The Rapper, Kendrick Lamar and even Lil Baby have all made this claim.

Are they right? To be clear G.O.A.T. stands for greatest of all time and when you’re talking about rappers, “greatest” includes skills, longevity, and relevance. Wayne has all of these but let’s see what else makes him the G.O.AT.

  1. HE IS A LYRICAL GENIUS Many people will say that Wayne’s rhymes are superior to everyone else’s but then they can’t really explain why. Well, what they mean is that his metaphors are the best in the game. After all he coined the phrase “real “G”s move in silence like lasagna?”
  2. MAKES MUSIC FOR SEVERAL GENERATIONS Generation X, Millennials, Gen Y and Z are all fans of Weezy. He first came out as a rapper when he was 12 years-old and now he’s 38. So, his longevity has touched multiple generations.
  3. HE MADE HIS MARK EARLY He dropped his first record as a pre-teen when he was ushered into the Cash Money fold. Soon afterwards he was kicking it with the Hot Boys and appearing on tracks like True Story and Bling Bling, which songs by seasoned pros.
  4. HIS VOICE IS UNIQUE Part of what makes Wayne’s rhymes so hot is his distinctive voice. At a mere 5’ 5”, his voice sounds like it belongs to an NFL linebacker.
  5. HAS DISCOVERED OTHER TALENTED RAPPERS His label, Young Money discovered Drake and Nicki Minaj, clearly two of top best rappers on the scene. If you want to argue about that, save it for another discussion. Right now, we’re talking about Wayne and his ability to spot top talent.
  6. HAS MORE HIT RECORDS THAN ELVIS Record sales, streams, and chart position determine how much fans like your music. In February of 2020, Lil’ Wayne released “I Do It” featuring Big Sean and Lil Baby. This was his 82nd career Top 40 Hot 100 song, pushing him right past Elvis Pressley.
  7. HE STAYS RELEVANT Wayne doesn’t have to release an album or even a single to stay in everyone’s rotation. His guest appearances on other artists’ records and videos keep him on your mind. Proof of this is the seven-year gap between the release of his albums Tha Carter IV and Tha Carter V. Despite the time that had passed, Tha Carter V had the second largest debut in the history of Spotify.
  8. OTHER G.O.A.T CANDIDATES CALL WAYNE THE G.O.A.T Several very credible and top-selling artists have called Wayne the greatest, including Drake, Lil Baby and Kendrick Lamar, who said, “Lil Wayne is the greatest. Not only because of his music but also because of the culture he put behind it… so, we always hold Wayne in high regards.”
  9. HE KEEPS WORKING Lil Wayne takes no days off. He is constantly involved with new projects or appearing on someone else’s track. And his lyrics never get stale, There is seemingly no end to the hot rhymes he comes up with.
  10. HE’S GOT A DISTINCTIVE SENSE OF STYLE Yeah he knows hot rhymes and the secret to commercial success, Wayne’s also got an eye for fashion. Check him in videos, where he’s sure to stand out, whether it’s the bright colors or the platinum grill.Source:BET
