During her conversation, J. Lo revealed who her top 5 rappers of all time are to which she named: Nas, Big Pun, Fat Joe, The Notorious B.I.G., and Lil Wayne.

“Nas is one of my favorite rappers of all time. He might be my number one. I don’t think I’ve heard anybody who raps, who hits me in the same way. He sounds like the guys I grew up with, but he’s also so intelligent. I always felt he was so smart. I just love that, I love his style. I would say I’d have to rep for Pun and [Fat] Joe. Biggie. I would definitely say Lil Wayne as well. He did call me Miss Lopez on a song like I was a teacher. So cute.

If you didn’t already know, Wayne and Lopez worked together on her “I’m Into You” single back in 2011!
