Guess Who Wants to Be Recognized as 'The Greatest Artist in the World...'

Guess Who Wants to Be Recognized as 'The Greatest Artist in the World...'

It's good to have goals.

Published December 14, 2016

'Tis the season to be generous for the holidays and goal-oriented for the new year. With the holiday season in full swing, even rappers are thinking about what they wouldn't mind seeing under their Christmas tree at the end of this month.

In a new feature on HotNewHipHop, a handful of rappers admitted what's on their Christmas list, with some being a bit boastful. Among requests for Rolexes and Lamborghinis, one musician in particular said he wants to be known as "the greatest artist in the world."

Surprise! Tory Lanez was the one who requested that not-so-humble accolade. While the artist did soar to new heights in 2016 with the release of his debut album, I Told You, the Canadian singer-rapper has much more work to put in if he wants to receive recognition as wild as "the greatest artist in the world."

Several artists, such as Jahlil Beats and Ace Hood, took the humble route, responding that they simply are looking forward to spending time with their children and families this holiday season. Meanwhile, others, such as A$AP Ferg and Riff Raff, didn't waste any time requesting a rare Rolex or a "codeine-colored Lambo." After all, this is a season for the dreamers, no?

Check out what other artists said is on their list here.
