Azalea Banks @azealiabanks
Whether using misspelled homophobic slurs or calling out other rappers, she is way more entertaining on Twitter than she is when she is rapping.
Ghostface Killah @ghostfacekillah
He consistently engages his fans, including me, with requests for their favorite lyrics. Also, he drops knowledge regularly.
RiFF RaFF @JODYHiGHROLLER
Wading through the unbelievable oddities that ramble through this man’s brain could be my life’s passion.
Andrew Nosnitsky @noz
Even if he’s simultaneously a bit standoffish and high-minded, no one is talking about rap the same way. I love that, whereas others can’t stand it.
Nah Right @nahright
I follow specifically to get new rap music as soon as it comes out, but looking up responses to a nonresponsive Twitter is also fun. Do that.
The Combat Jack Show @combatjackshow
Listening to these dudes talk about rap is must-hear podcasting, so the Twitter only elucidates the process.
His “daily game” tweets are must-follow philosophies. “Daily Game: Don’t telegraph your moves” is a personal favorite. Plus he plugs “Law and Order: SVU.”
50 Cent @50cent
He may not make commercially viable rap anymore, but he certainly has a flair for finding morally corruptible women to talk to in a NSFW fashion. If you find that as sociologically disarming as I do, then this is your jam.
Action Bronson @actionbronson
He writes pure nonsense in between plugs for his music. “Conveniently Jewish.” “I think I’ve just come down with a case of publishing.” “Dabby Devito.” Etc.
Tony Allen @aa000G9
Okay, so he’s an NBA player. He talks about rap a lot, though. And when he talks, generally, you should be listening. There’s nothing more absurd than a late-night Tony Allen twitter explosion. Trust me.
