Eminem: King of Hip Hop

Rolling Stone Magazine is practically the ruler of all things music, right? So they must have the power to name the “King of Hip Hop,” right?

Well, they’ve named him! And “him” is Eminem!

They say he’s the most successful rapper after evaluating record sales, social media hits and critical acclaim for the past two years. He had over 7.5 million record sales, 1.3 billion views on YouTube, and has over 5 million Twitter followers.

Here’s the full list:

  1. Eminem
  2. Lil Wayne
  3. Drake
  4. Kanye West
  5. Jay Z
  6. Nicki Minaj
  7. Rick Ross
  8. Ludacris
  9. Gucci Mane
  10. TI
  11. Snoop Dogg
  12. Diddy
  13. Pitbull
  14. Fabolous
  15. Wiz Khalifa
  16. BoB
  17. Waka Flocka Flame
  18. Lupe Fiasco
  19. Kid Cudi
  20. Big Boi

I can only imagine how angry Kanye is that not only is he not #1, but he’s behind Wayne AND Drake! And Snoop and Diddy not even in the top 10? Ouch on the ego.

Who do you think should be the KING OF HIP HOP? Did they get it right?
