Swizz Beatz has taken notice of the "Top 50 Greatest Rappers of All Time" list. The megaproducer is well-versed in the greats of Hip Hop as his tracks are classics in many of their albums. Swizz has been busy with music and bringing Verzuz back on stage, but he just spoke with Billboard. During their interview, Swizz was asked about his thoughts on the contentious GOAT list. He didn't appear upset with the choices, but he did admit one thing he would have changed.
“It didn’t make me mad,” he said of the list overall. “But you know, the way I would have did it — which, you know, y’all can do how you want to do it — but I would’ve said, ‘in no particular order.’ I know those are hard lists to do. It’s never gonna be the perfect list, you know?” It did seem that audiences were more concerned with where the choices landed rather than the picks themselves."
The interviewer stated that if the artistes were not ranked numerically, no one would read the piece. Swizz, on the other hand, argued that readers would engage in discussions about where they would place artistes rather than being told where their favorites deserved to go. He was also asked about his Top 10 elsewhere. “It changes a lot, because I don’t base my top 10 off of too much old things,” said Swizz. “It’s an all-time list, and it’s a current list.
That present one changes all the time, based on how well they perform." Lil Durk is the youngest artiste in Swizz's Top 10. “You know why? Because for me, it’s not just about bars,” Swizz explained. “It’s about believing those bars. When we first started coming up with Ruff Ryders and The LOX, what they was rapping about, they was really doing. It was really about that. It wasn’t for views, it wasn’t for an app, it was to express their surroundings. That’s what Durk does.”
