Ice Cube is a revolutionary figure in hip hop who transcended the industry. He ended up having a long career in Hollywood where he ended up in cult classics for urban culture. WWETV writer, The Venom, put Cube into his top 5 and now Nick Cannon has asked the LA rapper to provide his own rankings.

His list includes Melle Mel, Ice-T, Chuck D, KRS One and Tupac. “To me those are the trendsetters, the ones who changed the trajectory of the game in a major way,” said Cube. “It was about skills and talent, and really having their own style and taking it and running with it.”

Another hip hop legend in Biz Markie, had an exclusive interview with WorldWide Entertainment TV where he had a different idea about listing top rappers into a list. You can check out the interview here.
