GloRilla lists her Mount Rushmore of rappers

Memphis, Tennessee rapper GloRilla reveals her Mount Rushmore of emcees in the latest episode of the Club Shay Shay podcast with Shannon Sharpe. On Wednesday (April 3, 2024), the Club Shay Shay podcast aired its new episode on their official YouTube channel featuring GloRilla.

During the conversation, a member of 2023 XXL Freshman Class discussed her latest hit song “Yeah Glo!” and her journey from Memphis to the music industry limelight. She opened up about her new album, navigating the balance between confidence and self-consciousness, and the influence of Yo Gotti’s mentorship on her career trajectory after signing to his Memphis based label, CMG.




GloRilla also reflected on how haters fuel her determination and reveals her strategy for handling criticism with the support of friends and family.

From Michael Jackson to Katt Williams, GloRilla dives into the commercial expectations of the entertainment industry while sharing anecdotes about meeting LeBron James and her admiration for Kobe Bryant.


She candidly discussed her love for the Pittsburgh Steelers and why Shannon was once an opp of hers, the ideal first date, and her unique family dynamics, including her supposed cousins Lil Uzi Vert, Cardi B, and Tiger Woods. GloRilla’s upbringing with 10 siblings was much different than most, and she dived into her mother’s extremely religious background and why she was never allowed to have friends over as a child.


From her Top 5 rappers of all time to who she wants to collaborate most with in the music industry, GloRilla shares all of her feelings for the music industry. From her failed experiment as a weed dealer to working numerous odd jobs to becoming one of the hottest names in the rap game, GloRilla’s journey is filled with humor, heart, and a raw authenticity that shines through in every story she shares on this episode of Club Shay Shay.

At one point of the interview, she revealed her rap Mount Rushmore: “I’m only 24 so I can’t say rappers that were before me because I don’t know their music. So, Imma say Lil Wayne. Lil Wayne is one of the best rappers in the whole world. Imma say Lil Wayne, Drake, Eminem and Jay-Z.” said GloRilla. Watch the new interview below:
