RapCaviar sparked things on Thursday (May 27), when they released a Mount Rushmore graphic featuring the faces of J. Cole, Kendrick Lamar and Drake. One place was left empty and had a question mark on it. “Drizzy, K-Dot and Cole have been undeniable rap giants for quite some time now. Who takes fourth place on Mount Rushmore of the 2010s?” the requested caption.
The internet has weighed in on the subject for the past two days, with LeBron James offering his vote on Friday, May 28. The future NBA Hall of Fame co-signed Future for last place, retweeting the post and typing “Future Hendrix.”
Nicki Minaj clearly disagreed with the choice of King James. In response to his tweet, she rejected his reply and named herself. “I never thought I would have the opportunity to give you the alley,” she tweeted. “But you almost got it. It’s NICKI… EMMMM INAJ !!!!!!!!!!!!!”
The two rappers have strong cases. Future has six No.1 albums compared to Nicki’s two. They are both clearly two of the most influential artists of the past 10 years.
It was almost three years since Nicki released a studio album, her last being 2018 Queen. Looks like Nicki is almost ready to end her break. Two weeks ago, she released her 2018 mixtape Beam Me Up Scotty to streaming services and told fans that his new album is coming soon. The mixtape release features an updated tracklist with three new singles, including Lil Wayne and Drake’s collaboration, “Seeing Green.”
Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole and Travis Scott are just a few of the rappers who haven’t given up in a while.
