The rapper left out some HUGE names...

Snoop Dogg has named who he thinks are the most influential rappers of the last 20 years.

Speaking to XXL, the 'Drop It Like It's Hot' rapper revealed his list of artists who he believes have maintained longevity and remained genuine throughout their careers.

And his answer may surprise you.

"I definitely would have to say JAY-Z, E-40, Too Short, Puff Daddy," Snoop said. 

"Just because of longevity and the way that they’ve been able to reinvent themselves and stay relevant and stay true to who they are."

He added that the four Hip-Hop heavyweights "remain in the top five in conversation, no matter what it is when it comes to Hip Hop."

Snoop noticeably left out some key players that many would credit as influential including Dr. Dre, Eminem, Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

After being discovered and signed by Dre back in 1992, Snoop has frequently collaborated with the Death Row Records co-founder, as well as fellow Dre protégé Eminem.

Meanwhile, Snoop recently linked up with Chris Brown and O.T Genasis for their new collaboration '3's Company'.

The rapper is set to drop his eight-song project 'Make America Crip Again' on Friday 27th October, following the release of his controversial Trump-aimed music video for 'Lavender' in March.
