Today (Sept. 4) is Beyoncé's birthday, and what a life it's been so far. She's dedicated much of her time to music and made quite an impact on the industry and fans alike ... and even the Oxford Dictionary. Rappers know this. Drake dropped an entire ode to how much of an effect Queen Bey has had, "Girls Love Beyoncé," featuring James Fauntleroy, borrowing from one of her ealier hits, Destiny Child's "Say My Name." Click on for more rappers (other than Mr. Carter) and a couple crooners who have lyrically bowed down. Happy Birthday, Beyoncé!
