Out of the blue, Kendrick Lamar recently jumped on Twitter to salute two rappers he crowned the most influential in hip-hop: Lil B and Lil Wayne. Yep, we were taken aback by this as well.

K.Dot’s tweet was short and to the point: “Thank you BasedGod. Teaching us all how to swagg in videos. You and Wayne most influential. Thank you BasedGod.”

The Compton rhymer is not a heavy user on Twitter so this message was totally unexpected. Nevertheless, for Lamar to acknowledge the Based God and Tunechi as influential artists of this generation is certainly a high praise for the both of them.

Lil B was quick to thanked King Kendrick and replied with this tweet, “love you so much brother!!!!!!!!!! Appreciate that!!!! The truth always prevails I got you! TOP DAWG!”

It always good to see rappers show solidarity with each other rather than beefing over nonsense. We hope that other rappers are taking note of this.

But the question remains -- Do you think Lil B and Lil Wayne are the most influential artists of this rap generation? Tell us in the comments below.
