Yo yo yo yo yo yo yo…. so we are back once again with the rest of MTV’s “Hottest MCs” list. This list has already caused a lot of controversy including Kanye West calling in to tell Sway he gave him his first TV, A$AP Rocky not agreeing with anything on the list, and Lil’ Wayne once again being named the best rapper alive… by Kanye. So over all there’s just been a lot of Kanye all over this list even though he got the #7 spot. Here’s the rest of the list.
It makes sense that Nas would get the #4 spot, he did very well with his album “Life is Good” and frankly he’s a legend that everyone was waiting on new music from. Just being Nas alone should put him up there, dude will definitely be in the hip-hop Hall of Fame, as if he isn’t already.
#3: Rick Ross
Ugh! You gotta have the boss up in the mix this year. The main reason I feel that he should be on this list isn’t just because of his personal success, but because of all the people he put on. Look at Meek Mill, Wale, Stalley, Rockie Fresh… shit he even brought Omarion back. Rick Ross will always have a stash of hits, but he’s great at making others shine with his MMG empire.
#2: 2 Chainz
Who didn’t see this coming? If you’re talking about buzz alone, 2 Chainz could easily be #1. He got commercials, movies, shows, products, and everything else under the sun. We even got to go to one of his shows this year in Seattle and he had the Showbox turned up more than ever. Props to 2 Chainz on all the success this year, he definitely put in the hard work to get there. Don’t forget that the man that used to go by Titty Boi has been in this game for a very long time, it is definitely his time to shine.
#1: Kendrick Lamar
“I’m Kendrick Lamar, a.k.a benz is to me just a car” <<< one of the best hottest bars of the year. “Greh I know want this Dih!” on “Problems” is also a very powerful one this year. There’s no need for an explanation here. He released an instant classic album this year and sells out shows no matter if they’re in the United States or overseas. If Kendrick didn’t get the #1 spot MTV would be in some serious trouble and their panel might all need to start looking for new jobs. Congrats to K.Dot, he has a very promising career ahead oh himself.
“Drake’s dominance is well-documented, from SoundScan success to extraordinarily extensive radio play. As an artist, the Young Money standout blends R&B melody and alternative sensibilities with an MC’s bravado. While still spitting bars with some of the game’s most highly regarded lyricists, his emotive writing style made it acceptable for rappers to dish out their feelings (though Common might disagree).”
This post is a couple days late and I have no idea how I missed this but here it is. If you haven’t watched State of Nate before, it’s a little documentary Seattle native Nate Robinson is filming about his life and family. One of the coolest videos I’ve ever seen for sure. here ya go.
This show is amazing, granted that I just finished the first season about 2 weeks ago. Didn’t really get a chance to watch it until I started working here at Rich Kids, but damn I’m hooked. Can’t wait for this new season to come out. Here’s the trailer.
Don’t get me wrong, I can’t handle the screaming 12 year olds either, but Bieber has a prettey extensive sneaker game if you pay close attention. Same goes for the man that put him on the map, Usher Raymond. They were both spotted wearing some exclusive sneakers the past few days and I thought I’d share them with you. Here’s the breakdown.
Justin Bieber was seen hoopin’ in Toronto, Canada with some buddies of his in these Supra Royal Collection Pilot Suede Patent Sneakers that go for $105. Bieber has always been a huge fan of Supra and all the sneakers they have to offer. Probably one of my favorite brands too. Here’s what they look like up close.
As far as Usher goes he was seen at one of his most recent concerts performing in some Android Homme Propulsion 2 Black Sneakers. These retail for $190. Both kicks are pretty dope and affordable. Here’s a closer look at Usher’s sneaks.
