Lil Wayne may be called the GOAT, but who influenced him?

The Young Money legend was the first guest on DJ Khaled’s new Amazon Music podcast “The First One.” During the 45-minute interview, he was asked to name his favorite MCs of all time.

Lil wayne’s top 5 started off with two of hip-hop’s greatest, JAY-Z and The Notorious B.I.G. Lil Wayne also gave props to Noreaga aka N.O.R.E.

“I was the biggest N.O.R.E. fan,” said Lil Wayne of the Queens-bred rapper. “He had this thing about him where he could be from anywhere and you fu**ed with him.”

His top 5 wouldn’t be complete without Cam’ron. “I was the biggest Cam fan,” said Weezy of the Dipset rapper.


He also gave Missy Elliott flowers, crediting the rap icon as one of his biggest influences who inspired his early songs including “Block Burner” and “Tha Block Is Hot.”


“That was my favorite because that would be why I was making so many sounds,” said Lil Wayne.

“But you know Missy was into the whole ‘brrrt,’ you know what I meant? She about to make the ‘hehehehe ha.’”

When he was in the studio with Mannie Fresh, the producer would encourage him to throw in the “ha ha” ad libs.

“I was like, ‘Man, he want me to do a sound for every damn line!’

so the ‘Block Burner’ song was my best favorite song because my favorite artist was Missy Elliott.”

After hearing Lil Wayne’s praises, a humbled Missy responded. “I am so GRATEFUL. You always showing me LOVE & mentioning my name as your inspiration,” she tweeted.

“You  have also INSPIRED so many artists who used 2 get Clowned 4 making sound effects in my songs but I’m happy u & Manny saw the genius in it.”
