JAY-Z, Lil Wayne and Master P have been included in yet another top rappers list, and this time it’s courtesy of an unlikely source: Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid.
During a press conference ahead of Super Bowl LVII, where the Chiefs will be taking on the Philadelphia Eagles, former NFL player Brandon Marshall asked Coach Reid who he thought were the top three rappers alive.
The 64-year-old pondered the question before asking if the 1980s rap group The Fat Boys counted, to which Marshall said no. Eventually, the coach chose JAY-Z, Lil Wayne and Master P.
“JAY-Z. Shoot, I don’t know, Master P. Yeah, I’m going to name all the old ones,” Coach Reid joked before someone suggested Lil Wayne and Meek Mill. “I’ll take Lil Wayne. Wasn’t he just at our place? You gotta give me an easier question than that.”

Coach Reid and his Kansas City Chiefs will be taking on his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, in Super Bowl LVII on Sunday night (February 12) at the State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. The Eagles head into the game with Lil Uzi Vert’s hit single “Just Wanna Rock” serving as the anthem for their playoff run.
The last time the Eagles adopted a record from a native son was Meek Mill’s “Dreams and Nightmares” during their improbable 2017 Super Bowl championship run. Fellow Philly native DJ Drama recently claimed that Uzi’s song has “replaced” Meek’s as the go-to Philly anthem, but Baby Pluto brushed it off during an interview with The Shade Room at the 2023 Grammys.
