Phonte Compares Jay Z To ‘The Wire,’ Nas To ‘Breaking Bad,’ More

phonte featured

Phonte is a noted fan of Breaking Bad, and often takes to Twitter to unload his opinions on both that show and others. Last night, he began comparing rappers to different television shows, with entertaining results and some spot-on parallels; Jay Z as The Wire, Nas as Breaking Bad and Rakim as The Sopranos being the holy trinity that he identifies. Check the tweets below to see his comparisons to Action Bronson, 50 Cent, Eminem, Lupe Fiasco, Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Cash Money and just about everybody else—including himself. Let us know what you think in the comments.
