When it comes to who's the greatest of all-time, Kendrick Lamar isn't afraid to call his own number.
But he still has a love for his elders and on the Cruz Show this week K.Dot dropped a top five dead or alive of rappers besides him.
"Give me Jay [Z]. This isn't in any order," he explained. "Give me Em. Pac. Big. And give me Snoop. These are the cats that inspired me the most. And if you break down how I approach lyrics, you can hear the influence of each and every one."[Related: Kendrick Lamar praises Jay-Z's new album.]
What do you think of Kendrick's fairly conventional GOAT list of JAY-Z, Eminem, 2Pac, The Notorious B.I.G. and Snoop Dogg?
