3. Muhammad Ali

Namedrop: “Muhammad Ali knucklin in tournament. Pimp daddy hats with buckles and ornaments” – Slick Rick, “Memories,” The Art Of Storytelling. 

Before there even was such thing as Hip-Hop, Muhammad Ali was dropping bars on opponents domes before he’s drop right hooks on them. “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee” “Rumble young  man, rumble,” and numerous other rhymes, absolutely nobody in history got into the heads of his opponents like “The Greatest” did. Nothing more needs to be said.
