Juvenile Names His Top Five Rappers Of The Moment, Enlists Drake For "Rejuvenation"
Juvie speaks on who he's feeling in contemporary Hip Hop.
With his new album Rejuvenation due December 13th, Juvenile recently chopped it up with Billboard's The Juice about the new LP and the features on the album. During the interview, Juvie also revealed his top five favorite rappers of the moment, praising Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye West, T.I. and Rick Ross, who appears on his single "Power."
"I'm just a fan. I like real, real Hip Hop - when cats really rap, really rhyme and really put words together. I think [Ross] one of them. Ross is in my top five best MCs [out] right now," he said, naming his other four picks. "Right now: Ross, Wayne, Jay-Z, Kanye [West], T.I.... that would round out my top five. There's not a lot of other cats [that] I put on that pedestal."
He also said that Drake is set to appear on his upcoming album, which comes on the heels of Drizzy remaking his classic anthem "Back That Azz Up" as "Practice." "Drake, it's kind of a more flavorful thing. You know what's funny about that, I never heard the track. I actually went in blind and trusted Mannie. It's more like Drake going to do something and I'm gonna follow him on the song. There are other cats I've worked with like Lloyd, and Trey Songz, that's my guy. Before his career took off I did songs with Trey Songz."
