Rank matters, even among rappers, and Tip "T.I." Harris has set the cat among the pigeons with his own top 50 rappers list.
The Internet has been seething with lists of "Top 50 Rappers," all of them controversial, because, of course, there as many opinions as there are rap fans.
Now Tip "T.I." Harris posted his own ultimate list on Instagram and discussed it on his new 'expediTIously' podcast.
T.I. received a lot of criticism for his choices, but he stands by his opinion.
In response to the infamous list that has so many fans foaming at the mouth, T.I. posted his own version on Instagram.
The rapper discussed the list on his new 'expediTIously' podcast and debated the relative merits of Nicki Minaj and Lil' Kim, and how each should rank according to the other.
"THIS IS THE FINAL LIST #ExpediTIously created IF Y’ALL AINT HEAR THE WHOLE EPISODE YOU SPEAKING LOUD,OUT OF TURN AND WRONG AS A (expletive)."
"Nuff respect. @troubleman31 thanks for putting the old dogg in the mix."
Of course, T.I. received a lot of criticism for his choices, but he stands by his opinion.
When he was asked at Studio One ATL to nominate rappers to be depicted on a Mount Rushmore for Atlanta Hip Hop, he once again named Tupac, Big, Jeezy, Drake, Migos, Gucci, and of course, himself - Tip "T.I." Harris.
Heiress Harris, the daughter of T.I. and Tiny Harris was very clear about how she and her dad feel about the list of Top 50 Rappers in which her father is in the second spot. She said:
“My daddy don’t care about no list. Get out of my business!”
T.I. shared the adorable video on Instagram as a response to the wave of controversy which broke after the list was released. As far as Heiress is concerned, her daddy is #1 in her heart.
