Lil Wayne is considered the G.O.A.T of the rap game or at least in people’s top 5 when debating who the best in the rap game is.
But who are the people who influence the people who are considered the best?
In an interview with DJ Khaled for his new podcast, he asked Lil Wayne who influenced him as a rapper when he made Tha Block is Hot and Block Burner.
He said it was Missy Elliott. Missy was known for making sounds and making up words like “hee-hee-hee-how” on her songs
Wayne said when Manny Fresh was producing him he would push him to do the same.
