Hip hop's most influential men
There are certain hip hop stars who have made a major impression on their industry - an impact that goes beyond a couple of hit tracks. AskMen recently revealed their Top 49 Most Influential Men of 2013, and a few iconic rappers made the list. In fact, some of them were given the same honor as inventors, pro athletes, political leaders and humanitarians.
Just look at Drake, who was ranked #6, right after Nelson Mandela. Jay Z snagged the 13th spot, while Kanye West slid in at #41. According to the magazine, Drizzy's recent album "Nothing Was The Same" is what proved he has serious staying power and versatility as an artist. Meanwhile, AskMen commended Jay Z for not only having a sick rapping style, but also having the smarts of a businessman. As for Kanye? AskMen admitted Yeezy may actually be the creative genius he proclaimed he is.
