When you are talking about the new generation of rappers who are currently at the top of their game, there are quite a few to choose from. Names like A$AP Rocky, J.Cole, Chance The Rapper, Kendrick Lamar and Big Sean are emcees that definitely deserve to be put on that master list. However, even these megastars fade in comparison to the biggest star in rap at this very moment: the Toronto native Drake. His star power is shining really bright right now, and it seems that he’s the one who sets the trends that everyone else follows.

1 Drake is most likely the successor to Lil Wayne
Between the years of 2004 and 2007, Lil Wayne was really establishing himself as one of top artists to be reckoned with in the Hip-Hop genre. This was the period during which he dropped the albums The Carter and The Carter II. Little did he know that he would end up becoming the mentor of the next heir to the throne of rap, Drake. It’s quite amazing that Wayne’s label YMCMB has so much talent: Nicki Minaj, Tyga etc. But when you talk about who is most likely to be Wayne’s true successor, Drake is looking more and more like the likely candidate.
