Hip Hop Stars You Most Wish You Could Sound Like

List RulesVote up the hip hop artists you wish you could sound like - based on their singing or rapping voices only.

If you could roll up to a party and magically have the skills and voice of any MC, rapper, or hip hop artist, who would you choose to sound like? Would you rap like Jay Z? Would you steal Rick Ross's booming voice? Or maybe you'd choose to sound like hip hop artists who can sing like Andree 3000? Females, maybe you'd kill to be able to belt it out like Rihanna or rap like Cardi B or Nicki Minaj. 

All true fans have an opinion on the best rappers and the hip hop stars with the best voices, but you aren't necessarily voting on that here. Vote up the best hip hop artists that you think it would be fun to actually sound like. Who would surprise your friends the most? What voice would get the most attention? 

Vote for the talented hip hop stars you want to sound like below and feel free to add anything you feel is missing!
