Jennifer Lopez and Lil Wayne

Jennifer Lopez Says Lil Wayne Might Be ‘The Best’ Rapper

Jennifer Lopez has worked with many rappers throughout her career including Ja Rule, 50 Cent, and LL Cool J, but the “American Idol” judge holds a special place in her heart for one she’s yet to collaborate with—Lil Wayne. J.Lo considers the New Orleans MC to quite possibly be the best rapper alive.

The Latina diva told Hot 97’s Angie Martinez that she works up a sweat to Weezy. “I was working out yesterday and I was listening to Lil Wayne and I was just like, ‘Wow. He really says some sh—,'” she said. “But I was just listening to what he was saying and I really enjoyed it. He might be one of the best out there right now. He might be the best. He’s really good.”

Her love for Young Money doesn’t end there. J.Lo also has a soft spot for Nicki Minaj, and while she hasn’t heard Pink Friday in its entirety, she’s still a fan. “I love her. I haven’t heard the whole album, but I’ve heard her stuff that’s been on the radio and stuff like that. I really enjoy it,” she revealed.

Though no collaborations with Weezy or Nicki are currently on the table, Lopez has finished recording her seventh studio album Love?, which is awaiting a release date.
