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.
