In what has turned out to be 80’s Baby Week on XXLMag.com, I’ve decided to keep the civil war going by listing the 80 most influential “crack babies” in the world today. The criteria? Whoever I deemed worthy enough plus the guidelines I stated in a previous post. The list is compiled of rappers, execs, athletes, politicians, bloggers and other people who are going to shape the future of our culture.

In no particular order, the roll call:
