Twitter has become the best way to keep up with your favorite rappers. Since hip hop is such a competitive sport, I thought it would be a good idea to put together this list of the top rappers on twitter with over 100k followers. Why over 100k you ask? Because I find most rappers under 100k are regional acts.
Anyway, in the number one slot is Nicki Minaj with over 9.6 million followers and in the last spot at #64 is Method Man with 110k followers.
What I am most surprised by is Jim Jones having 2.4 million followers, I thought he was a 400k type rapper lol. In fact, he has 20 times the amount of followers as Cam’ron, who was the de facto leader in Dip Set. Jim’s follower account is likely due to his early adoption of twitter and his appearances on his wife’s VH1 show “Love & Hip Hop”.
Also of note is Mac Miller, who is the only independent artist with over a million followers and quickly approaching 2 million. Who needs radio to play your record a billion times a day to sell records? Not Mac.
If you want to follow any of these rappers just click on their twitter name. Also if we are missing any rapper over 100k followers, let us know in the comments section. Read more
