Video: Usain Bolt Loves Lil Wayne

Even the fastest man in the world, Usain Bolt, slows down long enough to get hip to all the talk around our 2009 Hottest MCs in the Game list. The Jamaican track champ has been unstoppable the past few weeks, and when it comes to the mic, he gives a gold medal to the Carters.

“When I was in the Olympics,” he told us, “I didn’t really listen to music. During the Olympics, it was mainly reggae, a little hip-hop. But I like Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, those guys. That’s who we listen to in Jamaica. A little bit of Ludacris. But as long as it’s hot, we got it.”

When asked for his #1, Bolt chose Weezy F. Baby.

“Right now, it’s Lil Wayne, #1,” he said. “He’s hot. He’s got everything. He sings the right tunes. I’m seriously listening to all his songs right now. Really sitting down, listening to his lyrics, and he’s got his lyrics down pat now. He’s got his lyrics. He’s coming up like Jay-Z. He’s smooth. He’s got a different flow from Jay-Z, but lyrics-wise, he’s got it. He’s a lyricist. Lil Wayne, Jay-Z, I don’t care who comes third. These guys have the whole place on edge, man. It’s hot.”

Bolt said he’s getting into the mixtape circuit as well, and on the reggae tip, Vybz Kartel and Beenie Man are the tops for him.
