10 celebrities (and athletes) who've heard rappers shout them out and responded in one way or another.
Rappers name-drop celebrities all the time. Whether making comparisons about their own skills, referencing films, weaving together careful similes, or just being thirsty, MCs have been shouting out other pop culture entities for as long as we can remember. What's much more uncommon is the celebrities in question hearing the shout outs, and then responding.
These reactions vary from person to person, ranging from grateful to disgusted, and don't often come from the celebs you'd expect. Today, we've picked ten of the best celebrity responses to name-drops in rap songs for you. There's only two criteria: none of these people are rappers themselves (athletes and singers are fair game though), and they're responding to song lyrics, not separate shout-outs.
Let us know if we missed any of your favorites.
