Lil Wayne Reveals His Top Five Favorite Rappers of All Time
Lil Wayne stars in his first commercial in two years, and this time it's for Bumbu rum. Here, the ad implements a theme anointing Weezy as the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all-time) head-to-head with the actual animal. Coinciding with the campaign, the 35-year-old revealed his top five rappers of all-time.
Wayne's list of the greatest MCs includes Cam'ron, UGK, 8 Ball & MJG, Missy Elliott and Jay-Z rounding out his top five rappers of all time. Based on the New Orleans native being an early 1980's baby, the timeframe of his favorites makes sense.
The commercial finds the Young Money boss chilling out at his mansion with a plethora of beautiful women partying the night away. A dazed Wayne asks the pair of goats in the ad to "Pass the Bumbu." The 30-second clip makes use of two of the largest hits from the Tha Carter III rapper's decorated discography in "A Milli" and "Lollipop."
This new commercial is a good look for Wayne while he finds himself amid some controversy. Weezy performed at the Cannibus Cup over the weekend, where he threatened concertgoers that if they kept throwing items on stage, there would be some harsh consequences from his entourage.
