When the story was reposted by DJ Akademiks on Instagram, fans almost universally disagreed with BlocBoy. “I’ve never seen clout chasing like this before bro is really going out sad = HE BROKE,” one wrote.

Despite his own inclusion in the list, J. Cole, Eminem, and Drake are popular picks for the title of the best rapper in the world. Earlier this year, Billboard selected all three of them for its “50 Greatest Rappers of All Time” list. Cole landed at number 15, while Drake went number eight and Eminem ranked at number five.
BlocBoy JB On His Place In Hip-Hop
Outside of music, BlocBoy JB recently made headlines for coming to the defense of Memphis Grizzlies star Ja Morant.
