This week, Billboard triggered a shockwave in the Hip Hop community with the release of their two lists that ranked “The 10 Greatest Rappers of All Time” and “The 10 Greatest Hip-Hop Beats of All Time.” The first of the two lists instigated widespread debate among Hip Hop fans and spectators alike, mostly for the exclusion of Tupac Shakur. Various cultural personalities later weighed in and offered their thoughts on the list, including Snoop Dogg, Ghostface Killah and more.

A string of Hip Hop personalities took to social media to offer their thoughts on Billboard’s recently published list of “The 10 Greatest Rappers of All Time.”

Among those who offered their thoughts were Snoop Dogg and Ghostface Killah, the latter of whom thanked Billboard for including him on the list.

“Love to @billboard for having me on their Top 10 Greatest Rappers of All Time list,” the Wu-Tang rapper wrote on Instagram, later taking the time to promote his Rap app. “Think you one of the GOATs?? Go cop that @ispit16 app now and get your bars up #Billboard #Top10 #GOAT #Spit16 #BeSeenBeHeard.”
