More Rappers Are Over 30 Than You'd Think

Remember the halcyon days of June 4, 2009? We are all a little younger, the Red Wings were up 2-1 in the Stanley Cup Finals and we talked about Ghostface quitting doing songs about coke because he said he was too old? Well, the folks at Bossip have compiled a lengthy list of rappers who are over 30, and it's below for your perusal. 

Ice Cube (June 15, 1969) – 39
Jay-Z (December 4, 1969) – 39
Raekwon (January 12, 1970) – 39

DMX (December 18, 1970) – 38
Method Man (April 1, 1971) – 38

50 Cent (July 6, 1975) – 33
Talib Kweli (October 3, 1975) – 33
Rick Ross (January 28, 1976) – 33
Cam’ron (February 4, 1976) – 33
Kanye West (June 8, 1977) – 31
Ludacris (September 11, 1977) – 31
Young Jeezy (October 12, 1977)- 31

It should be noted that they missed the brothers Clipse who are both over 30 (Malice is 36 and Pusha T is 33). And RZA who will be 40 in a few weeks. A lot of surprising names on there though, especially Jay-Z, who I can't believe is older than Q-Tip. Rick Ross also apparently didn't have a career until he was 30. Certainly lends those Ross was a prison guard first rumors a whole lot of truth.

 

It's also interesting to see how many of these guys are way old but are still doing lame songs about coke (looking at you Fat Joe and Busta). [Bossip]

I'm surprised Nas is 4 years younger than Jay as well, and yet reasonable doubt came out 2 years after illmatic...
