21. Micheal Phelps
Namedrop: “Concrete shoes wont help in the river, I dont care if you were Michael Phelps my ni**a” – Lil Wayne, “Ice Cream Paint Job,” No Ceilings.
Besides being the greatest Olympic athlete to ever live, Michael Phelps is a huge Hip-Hop head. In turn, Hip-Hop loves him right back, especially Lil Wayne. Weezy dedicated a song to the half man/half fish when he had completed a run in the Beijing games and Phelps returned the favor in the 2012 Olympics by shouting out Weezy along with Young Jeezy for inspiring him to get his dolphin on. He retired on top this past summer as one of the greatest athletes of all time.
