Rap legend Snoop Dogg was most grateful to Tip for the Top 5 ranking, saying in the comments section under the post: “Nuff respect. @troubleman31 thanks for putting the old dogg in the mix 💙🔥”

Another legend, Common, who was not listed at all, also weighed in the list. “Let me check the calendar to see if it’s April 1st. 😂😂😂 FYI, no list is perfect people. It’s just a fun game to play.”

@kingkeran also loved the list, stating: I love how DMX is top 10 ! 👌🏾

But rapper D-Nice was incredulous when he asked: “No KRS-One?”

“Like there wasnt ever a DOG POUND? 🤣🤣🤣🤣 @troubleman31.”

“Power” actor Lorenz Tate is pensive and doubtful: “🤔 **heads over to podcast …”

Rapper 2Chainz said: “Hahahah I got bodies all in that list.”
