Oh, I know my pals at Complex are kickin’ back with their microbrews and their fancy sneaker-dress shoe hybrids having a good laugh today. They posted another list, this time ranking the “30 Best Rappers In Their 30′s.” And like death and taxes, outrage was imminent.
I’ve saved you some clicking and refreshing, without giving away all the 30 names…
Let’s go over some of the rankings…
And discuss, which rapper do you think is the most pissed off right now?
After the jump
So here are the top 10 on the Complex “30 Best Rappers in Their 30s”: (Click on the link to read their summary)
So far, how does that list feel to you? Do you think that despite being #2, Kanye is still pissed? (Mind you, Lil Wayne is 29 years old, and Jay-Z is over 40 so they’re not on this list at all.) I like Danny Brown, but I wonder if his #8 spot has some of his fellow rappers grinding their veneers.
As for Joe Budden twitter fury (cosigned by Big Boi #11 and Young Jeezy #9, see above)…He is clearly pissed off because he got the #24 spot. His Slaughterhouse teammate Royce got #20, but Joell Ortiz isn’t included at all.
So do you think there are any other glaring omissions? Hast Joe Budden been forsaken? What about Lloyd Banks?
This guy is building a Complex Magazine bonfire right now? ; )
