“To me, arguably Tupac,” Polo said. “That’s considering that he was before his time and he is the inspiration to a lot of great minds today. And then I could say another person like Lil Wayne just because of the long run that he had and being the best of the best for a long time and just the influence that he had on a lot of great minds today. So those my two GOATs.”
In addition to Wayne and Pac, Polo also revealed he listened to a lot of Gucci Mane and Meek Mill when he was growing up, as well as local Chicago artists.
“I listened to the city heavy,” he emphasized.
