Of all time...
In an interview with Hot 97, Kanye West called Lil Wayne one of the best rappers of all time. This came up when he was asked about being #7 on MTV's Hottest MCs in the Game list.
On Big Sean not getting enough praise: "I'm happy for [Big] Sean. But I feel like he should be on top 5. He's bodying records, like the way he started off that 'Mercy.'
On making #7: "What happens with them… I had like the pink polo and the backpack and I'm checkin' all the boxes of that Tribe Called Quest era and J. Dilla and all that, so they wanna champion it. They don't like Givenchy Kanye. They don't like Kanye in a kilt. They don't like Kanye in a relationship."
On Lil Wayne: "Yeah, I just think... him and [Jay-Z] and [Eminem] and certain people are just the greatest rappers of all time".
