“These my top albums ever only rap n***as I ever looked up too,” wrote the 27-year-old.
Placed in no particular order, the rapper highlighted select projects from Nas, Lil Wayne, JAY-Z, and others. The first picture is one of Nas’ God’s Son. He follows that up with one of the greatest debut albums of all time, 50 Cent’s Get Rich Or Die Tryin’. Then, we get JAY-Z’s The Blueprint, Lil Wayne’s original Tha Carter, the third installment in that series, and Nas’ Stillmatic.
Rich The Kid is much more of an old head than many would have thought. Are you surprised that he was so heavily influenced by these albums?
