Lil Wayne Crowns Rich The Kid A Particular 'G.O.A.T. Of Hip Hop'

In an exclusive teaser clip of his upcoming appearance on

the Players Day Off podcast, Lil Wayne rescinded his

given title as the “G.O.A.T. Hip Hop Skateboarder,” and

when he expressed his critical thoughts that this

With the added merit of Lil Wayne’s compliment, Rich

The Kid continues to ring in 2021 with an abundance of

In fact, last month during Game 6 of the NBA Eastern

Conference Finals, Rich The Kid enjoyed the Atlanta

Hawks rap-themed playoff bracket, which put the “New
