Rappers are awesome. We know this. But whom you dub as your favorite says a lot about your personality. Using some of the most notable rappers in the game, we’ve broken down what each says about you, complete with our own ratings scale. This sh*t is scientific.

Warning: You may want to show these results to your therapist before sharing with your boys and/or girlfriend.

Emo Level: 10
Anger Level: 3
Player Level: 9

So your favorite rapper is Drake. That means you’re the most likely person in your crew to break into song and you probably tear-up at emotional commercials. While emotional, you also have commitment issues and probably choose strippers over your high school sweetheart.

Identity Issues Level: 7
Addiction Level: 10
Pimp Level: 8

You must smoke a lot and have a lot of nicknames, right? That’s OK, because so does your favorite rapper Snoop. From being called Snoop Doggy Dogg to Snoop Dogg to Snoop Lion and now Snoopzilla, Snoop’s personality changes ever so slightly with his name. If Snoop is your fave, you have identity issues but you also get a lot of chicks.

Lil Wayne

Baby Father Potential Level: 8
Addiction Level: 10
Emo Level: 4

Besides your sizzurp level and multiple children, you’re a stand up guy. Wait, that’s not you, that’s Lil Wayne. Either way, having Weezy as your favorite means that you’re pretty timid, wildly promiscuous and at times a little emotional. Just lay off of that lean will ya?

Kanye West

Confidence Level: 10
Anger Level: 10
Genius Level: 6

Having Kanye West as your favorite rapper means that your filter doesn’t exist. You must wear your heart on your sleeve and blurt random things out in heated moments. You also are a genius, but maybe not as much as you think. Hey, but that’s what happens when you’re a passionate guy with great fashion sense.

2 Chainz

Identity Issues Level: 3
Player Level: 7
Jewelry Addiction Level: 2 (for each chain)

It must be nice to enjoy jewelry, women and more women. 2 Chainz (formerly Tity Boi) reinvented himself mid-career. If you like change, then you definitely identify him. Plus you have about 500 different ways to describe sex, so that’ll come in handy at erotic poetry readings and stuff.

Intensity Level: 8
Anger Level: 10
Addiction Level: 4

You’re intense if Eminem is your favorite rapper. While you’re known to crack a joke, you also have a short fuse and will run someone’s ego right into the ground. Does the phrase “loose cannon” sound familiar?

Jay Z

Emo Level: 3
Anger Level: 3
Baller Level: 25

Not good with emotions, but good with money? Jay Z is your guy. If you identify with Hov, then you must really be a baller or have high ambitions to get there. It’s always good to dream.
