Posted By on April 29, 2009

    Time Magazine recently released their infamous "Worlds Most Influential Person" list and let us tell you, you will be surprised how it turned out. Finalists for the list were chosen through a poll featured on Time's website and rapper Lil Wayne came in 12th with close to 940,000 votes, probably since most of the voting was done during "Tha Carter III" hype. Weezy beat out "30 Rock" creator/star Tina Fey (15), singer T-Pain (34), "Family Guy" Creator Seth Macfarlane (40), rapper Kanye West (144) and even The President Of The United States Barack Obama who grabbed #37.

    The number one spot went to Christopher Poole, the founder of 4chan.org, after he received close to 17 miillion votes (which we are sure he was promoting heavily. Other music artists and stars included on the list include M.I.A. (105), Prince (104), and NBA star Kobe Bryant (9).
