Growing Latissimus Dorsi

From your experience, what are the top 4 exercises for getting that perfect v-shape in your back? Any links or clips of the exercises or how to do them with proper form would be great. Thanks.

Pull ups/pull downs (various grips)
Rows (various kinds, I like DB rows. Not great for ‘width’ but good for thickness)
Pulls to the face

Rack chins to the front and behind the head(to ears only) top my list currently

Reverse Grip Pulldowns

Rack Dead lifts

T Bar rows with small plates

For width really getting a good stretch and controlling the negative has made the difference for me.
