If You Like Jay-Z, Then Try These Rappers


10 of 10

#1. Joe Budden
If You Like Jay-Z, Then Try These Rappers

While Budden is original in his own right, he effectively channels Jay's grim introspection and cocky, semi-arrogant style. His forte is the ability to create music powerful enough to communicate to the heart, while keeping it smooth enough for radio.

Joe Budden is to Jay-Z what Nas is to Rakim.
